Clio 51reg - Brakes grinding....??

Hi All,

I have a problem with my Renault Clio 1.2 51reg dynamique.

When i brake 80% of the time i just get a grinding noise and i can feel it in the pedal like scraping on the disk as it goes round.. the brakes at this point are some what useless... i have to keep letting go of the brakes then pressing them again.. i usually have to do this a couple of times before the brake decide to work properly. This has been going on since the brake pads where replaced so i think it has something to do with that.

Also when the brakes are grinding i can hear a slight buzzing noise that sound like its coming from something electrical maybe. This goes away when the brakes decide to work.

Can anyone help as it is pretty dangerous i know but cant afford to go renault garage..

Thanks in advance
