Groaning Noise when applying medium braking????
Well, i noticed this week that when apply 'medium pressure' on the brakes, from about 25mph down to a stop, there is like a deep groaining noise from the brakes on 1.9TDI Sport. I dont think that this noise is comming from the back brakes as i only replaced the pads in august, and we checked the discs and they looked fine.
So i think its comming from the front. Is this a sign that the Discs and pads are fooked? looking at the discs (without whippin the wheels off) it does look like the discs may be worn. Is this something that is known to happen when discs/pads need replacing. Also there is no warning sign appearing on the DIS either, which i thought would have made an appearance if the pads need changing?????
Also if this is the case, is it time to buy some aftermarket discs and pads? I can't afford to spend silly amounts just on brakes (i still owe money on the car itself). Although i do like the idea of some nice new good-looking discs and decent pads.
Any help/advice appreciated.
