    Default scraping noise from rear. rear brakes? upgrade?

    1.9cdti(150) 56plate

    got a slight problem and it's doing my head in now.
    it's not constant so i'm not sure what to look for.

    there's a scraping noise coming from the rear of the car.
    when i brake from speed i notice it more. or brake at low speeds.
    doesn't seem to do it inbetween?


    worst case worst, if they need replacing what should i upgrade to?
    are the 314mm disks a straight swap?
    is it 314 front & rear or just front? if so, what's the rears?

    also, any part numbers & prices would be appreciated.

    ta.

    Default

    On a 1.9 CDTi (and 1.8, 2.0/2.2 DTi) the rears are 278mm solids. On the 2.0T, 3.2, 3.0 CDTi and 2.8T they are 292mm vented.

    With regard to the scraping, this is something I had in the past (292mm rears on my 2.0T). Most noticeable when I reversed off the drive first thing and when initially driving at low speeds. Never found a cure for it, even after cleaning up the pads and discs. In time I needed to change the discs and pads due to them wearing. After that, never had a squeak, or scrape, out of them.
