    Default Creaking sound from Brakes

    Hello, I´ve noticed a disturbing creaking sound from my Vectra´s brakes. Here´s a short video i took with my phone.

    just watched vid again, still sounds like handbrake slipping a bit to me. is yours doing it when car is on the flat or on a slope?

    Its not the handbrake it does it even when the car is off the ground on a 2 post ramp. Ive also had someone sitting pumping the pedal while ive been lying underneath the car its definetly around my caliper.
