Re: Ultra Loud Squeal Noise From Rear Wheels (not under braking)

Since having new discs/pads fitted, the noise has obviously gone on mine too. 1000 miles in, no noises but it was a good 15,000 to 25,000 miles before mine started initialy.

Seems unfair some are having to pay 340 for new brakes (me!) and others are getting them changed under warranty...

Re: Ultra Loud Squeal Noise From Rear Wheels (not under braking)

I heard of a few people getting the pads changed under warranty as it happens to quite a few of these cars from 3,000 miles, I'm off to the stealer today and going to make them do it, the car has 10,000 on it now and it has drove us mad all that time. I'm loosing faith in these cars, might sell it!

Re: Ultra Loud Squeal Noise From Rear Wheels (not under braking)

It is annoying but the problem is simple to resolve.
Removing the pads, lightly sliding the friction surface over some abrasive paper on a flat surface and refitting after cleaning and applying copper grease to the contact surfaces worked fine for me. (Obviously not the friction material contact surface, although that would definitely solve the problem )
Did this at 4,000 miles and now I'm at 10,000 odd miles and still silent.
