    confused Scraping Brakes?

    Had all new pads and discs fitted about six weeks ago at a dealer. Shortly afterwards noticed a scraping sounds which put down to a bit grit getting caught between the pads and discs.Hasn't cleared but is very intermittant and generally only appears if I do a sweeping right manouvre at slower speeds such as an roundabout or sharp right hand bend. Noise seems to come from front passenger wheel.Been in to dealers today and they couldn't find anythings. They have re-positioned rear brakes but on way home got noise again.Any ideas?

    Gsi3.2 is your man for the definitive answer, but just sounds like rubbing pads to me. need to get a bit of copper grease in there (not on the disc!)
    to stop them squeaking.

    Doesn't sound like a squeak or squeal though. Sounds more like a grind.
