    confused Strange creak when braking?

    Today my vectra has decided it is time to throw another annoying problem at me

    When braking the car stops as it should but below 5mph,just as i stop i am getting a weird creaking noise from the front o/s

    Has anyone come across this before - all the discs and pads were changed a month ago, the caliper etc all looks fine

    Any advice greatly appreciated

    Mine did that, also the front offside brake
    Very noticeable when the car was stationary and pressing the brake pedal

    Found to be a siezed caliper

    I hope its not the caliper - the wife is just looking for a reason to get rid as we seem to be replacing parts monthly

    I've never owned a car that goes wrong so often
