Grinding/Scratchy Brakes (with video)
my brakes have been making a weird scratchy sound for quite some time now.
at first I thought it was my discs and pads were old. So I bought new discs and pads all round. It then started doing it aain after a while.
i then noticed that my rear offside calliper was binding as the wheel didn't spin very freely (unlike the others). I then took the calliper apart, cleaned it and greased it, put it back together and it was fine for about 100 miles. It then started scratching again.
I then took it to the garage to see if they could work out what the problem was. They reckoned my rear calliper was seized which was causing it to bind.
they put a new calliper on and there was no scratching........until after about a 100 miles again. However, I jacked the car up and the wheel spins much better (about the same as the other side)
Could my rear disc be warped from the old calliper that was binding?
