    confused Veccy brake problems

    Hi Guys, new to this forum.

    Got a problem with my back brakes at the moment, (04 veccy dti design) i do alot of millage 2thousand miles a month, and recently i noticed that i have been hearing alot of noise coming from my rear wheels, sort of a grinded noise happens when I brake or just crawling at 10mph, took it to vauxhall and they had a look at the wheels, brakes and disks, all normal they say.
    Another thing is when I apply the brakes i kind of hear (cant really explain it) AIR escaping, squishe sound.
    Its really doing my head in, as I need to get it fixed so that I can sell her and get another veccy sri.

    Any Help

    Kind Regards

    Matthew

    I think i have got the same problem. It only happens when braking at low speed and as you said it is very annoying. I have just had MOT i told them to replace front brakes and pads because I felt thats the time to do it. The car passed MOT without any problems. However the noice from rear wheels while breaking has become louder now and I am thinking of replacing pads and disks in the rear. Anyone any suggestions?

    They are either just low..

    or

    cheap pad's? if the metal content in them is too high, you will get more of a grinding noise from them!

    I had the grinding noise on mine coming from the rear - new pads and disks, and a clean of the caliper with brake cleaner has eradicated it totally.
