    problem.

    DAMMIT my internet connection is poo. Just typed this once and lost it.

    Just back from Le Mans Classic. Tripped onto boot of car whilst running across car park and ripped forehead off on rear light cluster. Stuck thumb clean through other cluster. Result: 2 new clusters. Nice. Now look like I've performed a DIY lobotomy, but French hospital was awesome. Everybody saw my skull, and about a pint of my claret which was squirting out with every heartbeat!!

    Was a hard drive, trying to keep up with a Maserati V8 Gransport, Wheels are black, and showing streaks of black liquid. Red stuff front pads, rest OE.

    Today the n/s/f wheel/brake started the loudest shrieking/whistling ever.
    No loss of brakes, no warning lights, DOT4 at right level.

    I'm stumped, can anbody help me?

    Ouch! Sounds like a good weekend!

    Grease coming from a knackered cv boot? Split brake hose?

    Turns out I had a pebble ledged in there - was ear splitting but 100% back to normal now. Thanks guys.

    Head also much better. But a bit freaky looking.
