Thumbs up Re: RX4 - Squeaking, now Grinding noise from front wheels

you won't believe it...
(and neither did the French mechanique with 40yrs exp.)

but the disc pad itself had overhang on the brake disc, causing the noise - once the 75% of actual disc pad being used had worn down. The remain 25% was completely untouched.

Driving round like that for 10 months and had no idea until the noise started coming from it.

Not sure I'll be using that same garage for MOT purposes again. I'll dig the picture out.

THanks for responses
Currently in RX4Rex's garage:
RX4, 525 E34, Iveco Daily minibus
