    Default Noisy back brakes

    Any one experienced noisy back brakes when braking?
    It only happens with the last couple of turns (of the wheels) prior to stopping!! as its a new car I phoned the dealer to book it in, only to be told its due to salt on the roads getting onto the pads and will go away in time. When I said I would rather they check it out, I was advised that if they booked it onto the ramps and found nothing wrong, they would charge me £60.

    Well I said I would leave for now, but if it proves to be a fault, then I will not be held liable for any damage and would expect re-placement discs etc.

    Having run the car for a further 4-5 days the noise is still there. Any one else had this "experience"??

    just had mine in for noisy brakes, grinding ... most noticeable when slowing to a stop, rear brakes were replaced under warranty...

    i was told however, that brakes are actually not covered, after 3k miles, but the garage sweet talked vx in to paying for it to be sorted.

    if you have network q warranty tho it should be sorted.

    Car is only 8 weeks old, but have done over 3.5k is it still covered by the 3 year warranty deal?

    Yes I have the 2.0L Turbo Edition 100 and its always had noisy rear brakes : I was told the same thing, due to the salt on the roads, but you get it all year round when there's no salt My rear disks are starting to get a ridge on the edge to, and car has only done 20,000 miles, do you think I should complain and get them changed as I have paid for an extended network Q warentry?

    I've brought this up with my dealer a couple of times, same circumstances - basically it's most noticeable when at a slow speed coming to a stop.

    Never been told the salt 'excuse' as above (which sounds bollox to me) - as it also does it in summer. What they have said is that it's dues to the fact that pads these days no longer have asbestos (not allowed) so they are noiser due to the mateials they have to use.

    Is that a feasible reason - or bollox as well!?

    Did that cure the problem BTW? Have you had the noise back - or is it all gone?

    I have been given the salt excuse before, in a very condesending manner " you know your car has very big alloys on it so the salt gets in easier, the discs corrode slightly and you get this noise, you will notice it dissapears after a while" this was with the 17`s on. I told him my old mg had `big alloys` on it and was fine and perhaps he was talking out of his **** ? Didn`t take kindly to that, or fix it either, ***** !!

    I also get this grinding noise especially first thing in the morning. Noticed it about 12 months ago and took it to a mate who's a mechanic but he could find nothing wrong.
    I have a steep downhill just outside my house and get rid of the noise by applying the handbrake for about 100m.
