    Default Brushing noise from front (repetitive noise on every rotation of the wheels)

    Been noticing this very annoying noise since I replaced my front discs and pads a couple of weeks back.

    Sounds like something is rubbing, but I can't find out what.

    Most noticeable when turning right at slow speeds oddly...

    Anyone got any ideas?!

    Sounds like the shield on behind the brake disc is touching the disc. It'll sound worse when turning a certain way as the disc will be getting forced harder onto the shield

    Simple fix if it is, jack the car up, take the wheel off and bend the shield back a bit

    Cheers for the ideas guys.

    I did wonder about the shield as it's happened in the past (ruined a brand new disc!). I'll take a look.
