Re: New noise

Kev, if your GP still stops on a sixpence just by thinking about applying any brake pressure then you should be happy that you have some of the best brakes I've ever experienced!

I have also noticed that slight grinding noise in other cars (not the GP but then again the diesel noise more than makes up for that) especially when you have new brake pads fitted as there is a course layer on new pads to 'clean up' the disk. That's why the technicians always tell you take it easy for the first 100 miles of city driving with new pads.

Anyway, I think we owe it to Kev to make this another epic - if T doesn't strike the Delete key first!

But I've done 5000kms by now (only drove it two/three times a week for the last 8 months), so the brake pads can't be considered new anymore, right?

As you've all figured out I don't know too much about cars and I really hate to turn this into another epic, so can someone shut me up by clarifying if I understand the below correctly?
  • Grinding noise comes from (new) brake pads/discs rubbing against each other, even though I'm not stepping on the brakes.
  • Would be less noticeable when they become worn.
  • Its normal and most cars make that noise too.

Yes to all three, but most cars will still make some kind of grinding noise at low speed and more noticeabley when the brakes are applied at low speed. Not a bad noise, but it can be noticeable especially if the car hasn;t been used for a bit and the brakes are a bit dusty.

Where abouts in Aus are you? If you live in a dusty part then the noise is simply dust on the pads/dics and it will always be there. As the GP is so quiet maybe you;ve just notived it more on this car rather than any other as other noise would usually drown it out.

Failing that, turn the radio up and then you can't hear any noises to worry about
