    Default Loud squealing/squeaking

    Posted this a while back, but since fitting the alloys it has become much more frequent. Basically when the car is travelling between 30 and 45 mph a loud squealing/squeaking noise comes from what appears to be the passenger side of the car. I didn't really pay much attention to it until it turned the heads of a number of pedestrians i passed

    I have heard the same noise coming from other Vecs' of the same spec i.e LS/Life.

    It's becoming very annoying, even more so when the dealers couldn't hear it when they took it for a test run.

    Has anyone else had this on their car?

    hmmmm....could it be related to the brakes (have you changed the recently?), or a ball bearing?

    Any idea how i could find out for sure what it is before going to the dealers? If they can't hear it while taking a test run then they fob you off saying it's fine

    Out with the pads, spin the discs and see if you can see the warp.

    Other things to check are these

    Stone between the shield and disc
    Shield cutting into alloy, check back of wheel for grooving

    Had a very similar experience on my 53 Vec-C. Turned out to be the thin metal plate behind the disc. It is very thin metal and when it warps it touches the disk. It's very easy to just bend a little away from the disc.
    Sorry can't remember the technical name for it, just pulled a 16hr shift and I'm kn@#&*@ed,

    Regards

    Nidge
