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

You really can't afford to risk running with a brake fault. Take it to a local small garage and ask for advice.
You need to be sure nothing is going to fall off.
From your description, it could be the grinding noise and funny pedal feel is the ABS kicking in.
Could be a connector that got disturbed at the front wheels or ABS ring on driveshaft hanging off.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
