Hi there,
My standard KA 1.3 has started making a knocking sound when apply the breaks. When th brake is applied there is a knock, just once... then if i lift my foot and replace it down the knock is there aain... ie when braking i dont get a knock knock knock sound, its almost like it is the brake pad knocking on the disc when it first touches it.... could that be what it is?
Any other thoughts please?

i would remove the wheels & check the brake calipers are tight as it sounds like a bold mayhave come loose.
i would also check the pads whils there for wear & the actuar disk's

if need replacing try here

Hey mate, have had both wheels off and can see nothing that is loose or that would knock. Both pads are almost new so not them either... what else could it be?

Mine started to do this (my previous 2002 Ford Ka). It turned out one of the brakes had worped (sp?).
