Brakes Or Rotors Are A Mess...

13 May 2015 - 07:49 PM

So like i said in a previous post about having my brakes changed at my last service.  This is the result still and it's getting worse as its warming up.  It sounds like the pad is slipping the tighter i hit the brakes.  Only in reverse?  I sprayed the mounts but the sound it coming from the actual caliper.  I can feel the ping in the pedal and it squeals when pulling into a parking space like tesco.  Now wondering if the way the rotor was sanded was botched.

 

Coming from both sides! less on the passenger but same sound..

 

Dealership said they cant find an issue...

 

new video i think the engine is dimming out how loud it is.

Major Annoyance With Brakes

21 March 2015 - 12:12 AM

I had my brake pads changed in December and started getting weird squeals when i reverse and park on a small slope,  They also seem to creak as well even when i turn the wheel a little bit while having the brakes pressed to the floor.  I went to Ford only for them to first tell me they couldn't duplicate the problem, so i sent them out again.  They did see a creek on a joint so they wd 40 it.  It made no difference what so ever....  Took it for a car wash and it stopped doing the majority of noises apart from a high pitched squeal in reverse.  I'm going to assume the creaking will return tomorrow.  Does anyone have any idea's what the hell they could of done by just changing the pads?  Convincing them is annoying because i know it'll start tomorrow.  Any idea's?

Got the alloys fitted yesterday and noticed my wheel nut covers are gone. :( Going back to garage tomorrow to ask about it but wondering if they can fall off?  How do i go about getting replacement?

195-50-16 Vs 195-50-15

19 February 2015 - 07:32 PM

Trying to decide whether to either downgrade to 195-50 15 inch alloys to allow more cushion from the road or whether to upgrade my 195-45-16's to 50 profile.  What are your thoughts on getting more comfort?


Missing Rivet

26 January 2015 - 12:19 AM

Missing a rivet on some sort on this side.  I took the mudflap off and noticed this as their is one on the other side.  Does anyone have a part number so i can get one.  The wheel arch seems to be loose without it.
