    Default brakes creaking

    ive had a creaking noise when coming to standstill on the front brakes for a while. doesnt do it when at speed, just when coasting to junction etc.

    ive depressed pedal by hand and had a listen and i can hear the noise from the drivers wheelarch area.....

    anyone any ideas?

    cheers

    I had this on mine, was diagnosed as a seized front offside caliper
    It was worse when stationery and pressing the footbrake, clearly audible

    right, i now have an annoying permanent sqeak on the brakes, like there dry, ive regreased the pads with copper slip and hasnt made a difference, the creaking is still there as described above but with a permanent sqeak aswell now.

    indicative of caliper seizing aswell, or could it be the slider bolts.

    Any build up of rust on the end of the disc rotor? I usually get a small hammer and gently chip away all thick rust from the rotors.

    Careful though as you can shatter a disc rotor if you hit it too hard!!
