    Default Christmas come early?

    Hi All

    I have just taken delivery of my veccy , 3.2 auto elite 04, before it was delivered the dealer fitted new pads all round and disks on the front , all genuine VX parts , since my first drive home i can hear the faintest ringing ( like rudolph and the gang are trapped under the car ) it stops when i stop , do you think its the pads bedding in on the new disks? its definately all new and there's plenty of copper slip , any thoughts?

    Also i have to drive over a couple of table top style traffic calming humps and there is a ' dry creaking ' from what sounds like front and rear , any ideas ? is there anything i can 'lube' so to speak ?

    Thanks in advance

    It seems common for the squeak. It can be the radiator mounting bush,s or the anti roll bar bush,s. I can not think of what the ringing noise is though. Hope you enjoy your motor it sounds a nice car.
    Another thing to look for is an emulsified gundge in the oil filler neck. It is due to shourt journey,s. What I did was to remove the filler neck ( if it has not been done so allready) it twists off like the yellow oil filler cap. I then replaced it with the yellow filler cap. A lot of us 3.2 V6 members have done this "trick".

    Sounds like a nice motor!

    The 'creaking' from the front on mine turned out to be the radiator mounts, like Ed says. It's an easy fix, had it on my previous Vec C too.
