    knocking noise when breaking

    Hi some advice needed please

    Just fitted new disc & pads at the front - the rear will get done end of the month, after fitting new discs and pads i took the car for a test drive the breaks are working fine but I get a knocking noise when breaking -the faster the car is moving when breaking the faster the knocking noise gets

    Does a yone know why this is happening ? The car is a A4 DTM 2.0 Quattro

    Thanks

    James

    Possibly pads moving in calliper, shim would probably sort this out.

    Try reversing & see if knocks, then going forward & see if knocks, if so then its this.

    OEM RETROFITS - CRUISE CONTROL - SAT NAV - BLUETOOTH - AMI - HEADLIGHT SYSTEMS

    PARKING SYSTEMS - DIAGNOSTICS - FAULT FINDING - BODYWORK - PAINTWORK

    Finally sorted the noise out I had a nightmare fitting the new discs and pads first the noise then a faulty brake pad sensor-I got these from GSF parts and was able to return the faulty brake pad under warranty, I paid £206 for discs and pads just for the front and been quoted £75 for the rear discs and pads - I bet I could of got these cheap elsewhe

    Looking forward to payday to refurbish my alloys (gun metal grey) cant wait

    Cheers James
