    Car left for two 2 weeks - rumbling noises whilst breaking

    Hi Guys

    Might be nothing be I left the car undriven for nearly 2 weeks and when I started driving the breaks sorted of sounded like they were grinding (in a blocked kind of way). There was also this rubbing noise from teh rear left (i think) when I started to move the car slowly.

    It all kind of went away within a couple a minutes but it was quite a shock to me to be honest.

    It hasn't come back for at at since that day so I'm kind of clueless.

    Any views?

    Its just a light surface rust on the disc faces from where she has been stood. It's perfectly normal, do not worry

    Ah!! That makes sense and makes me feel better!

    Should I have protected the discs in someway is should I be doing something now?

    just normal braking will sort it out!

    no real way you can protect your discs from this sort of thing to be honest unless you want to go for a carbon fibre brake set up ....

    Unless you store the car in an air conditioned bubble, the moisture from the air will rust the clean shiney disc surface sadly
