    Default Knocking noise when coming to a stop

    Have a 57 reg Vectra C 1.8 sri which has started to make a slight knocking noise (from back i think) when stopping at lights, parking etc. The noise only occurs as the car is about to come to a complete stop. Driving, breaking, going over potholes and rev'ing the engine etc doesnt seem to cause the same noise

    The drop links were replaced about 4 months ago and it just had a mot/service on Saturday. The garage couldnt find anything wrong although i didnt point this problem out to them as i didnt want any excuses to fail it. Any ideas what it could be?

    Hi preecy,some cheaper brake disc pads are slightly smaller in the backing plate than originals letting the pad move inside the calliper mounting under load.drive the car forward a few feet and brake reverse a few feet and brake again if you hear the knock it is almost certainly this problem you have.no detriment to the vehicle or braking just anoying.
