    Default what brakes do i have

    I've started to get a scraping noise at really low speed so guessing It could be brake pads. It dosent happen at high speed or change tone when I brake but could it be anything else

    Which brakes are these I roughly measured them and they seemed bigger than the 314mm brakes. If they are the 314mm then what pads do I need

    The outer front brake pads on the 314mm are very easy to view
    Equally, the nearside has a brake pad wear sensor

    Could you advise what engine your car has?

    Vehicle : vectra

    Trim : VXR

    Engine : 2.8 v6 Turbo

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 69k

    Default

    If those are 19's it looks like 314's the 345's fill the wheel up alot more. As for ure grinding noise take the wheel of and check them, the pads do touch the disc ever so slightly anyway so it might be that noise??

    Contact the VX Parts Department in advance, check that you can return them if they are indeed 345mm pads (most will exchange provided they are still in box and clearly not fitted)

    I've never had grinding noise, as the warning indicator usually switches on and I then watch the amount of brake pad left
    Eventually their performance is awful and I replace them

    However, I note in the photo there is a wear ring on the disc
    Mine has this when new pads are fitted, and have never found out why this occurs
    The dealership removed, cleaned and greased the pads but it made no difference
    It never appears on a set of new pads and discs

    Its not so much a grinding noise more off a rubbing noise but can't see anything catching. There 18s on that picture. Are Vauxhall the best place to buy pads or eBay?
