    Default Brake queries

    Today coming off the motorway had to do a bit of heavy braking as some a$$ in a golf cut in front of me then after I got off the motorway came to a set of lights and braked as normal and a horrible grinding noise came from the brakes this is not the first time I heard it the pads have plenty left on them and the disks are in good condition anyone any idea what it is ?

    Check the dust covers, they may be making contact?

    Are you sure its not the ABS kicking in? That gives a grinding sound. It might be that the abs sensor has got dirty with all the salt on the road just now

    It can still do it under light braking, esp if there's a wee fault. Other thing it could be is you've hit a bit of ice, just enough for the wheel to almost lock, you wouldn't always feel it. Might be worthwhile getting someone to have a look at it to be on the safe side if you're unsure tho

    could just be crap pads , had the same on my car but only after a bit of distance & brake use .
    to hear it & feel it you would swear the front left pads were on the metal , changed them anyway as I was sick of the noise & they were less than half worn .
