    Default Grinding brakes

    Hey guys.

    Not long had my new vectra and it seems that my brakes are grinding, rather badly too

    My friend who is a mechanic tells me that the pads and discs are both fine and it is probably because it was stood for a while before i bought it.

    Is there any common fault with grinding brakes? need to know if its anything to be worried about/ whether i should change them or just run them in a bit

    cheers

    If the car has been standing, it might be a good idea to run it for a while. Did your mechanic look for any rust catching anywhere. If the brakes work ok, and your mechanic says the pads and disc,s are alright. I think I would run it for a while and see.
    As to any known faults I don,t know of any I must admit.
