Update - Ford replaced the pads, wire brushed the discs and greased everything up, all free of charge and so far after 2 days of usage I have not had the Chewbacca noise :)

Definitely must of been a dodgy set of pads!

Just an update, I phoned Ford again and asked them to replace the pads they put on my car with new ones as they must be faulty and they have agreed to. At least it will eliminate if it's the pads causing the noise. Booked in for Friday

James, yes only happens when breaks are applied, I tested if it was anything to do with the handbrake as I put it in reverse, let it roll back and slowly applied the hand brake, no noise.

If you look in the vid, I am breaking as my break lights are lighting up only when the noise sounds

It !Removed! embarrassing in a public car park, the video doesn't demonstrate how loud the noise actually is!

Forgot to mention it only happens in reverse, never forward and only happens when I apply the brakes, so it's definitely break related.

Could it be a faulty set of pads? Ithis has only started since Ford replaced my old pads so surely they are to blame? I've been back 3 times now and it's so frustrating it doesn't do it there.

I thought maybe I need to warm the brakes up so went on a 20 min drive via my towns one way system continuously using the breaks and typically it didn't do it. Got home and guess what... Done it

I don't know what to do! Can I demand they replace the pads?

I was saying before the game I think Germany will put 4 past them but no one would of said 7!

Brazil are shocking, what the hell is Fred all about, Adriano or Pato would of been better surely, they weren't even in the squad? Yes they are not in big teams now, but seriously... Fred, even the name is lame lol

2002 squad was amazing, won't get another like that

As for Germany, hate to say it but amazing
