noisy brakes

Postby cliffk » Thu Sep 14, 2017 8:47 pm

I have replaced the front discs and pads on my 2003 HDI estate, since fitting the new parts i am getting an intermittent grinding noise which sounds like there is a rough patch on the disc or a crack but both discs are in good condition.

It doesnt happen all the time but when it does the the sound is definitely rotational as it changes with the speed also I can feel something through the pedal.

Any Ideas anyone

I expect someone with much more knowledge than I will be along soon,
but that sounds rather like the ABS kicking in.

2 weeks late.
Split ABS reluctor ring can cause spurious ABS operation which is a vibration that you can feel through the pedal.
Easy to check, get a torch put steering on full lock and roll car forward checking the toothed ring on the CV joint, they crack & split wide open.
Not sure if it happens on the rears as well.
