    Starting to get a noise from the front end of car when I put the brake pedal down slowly or fast. It's like metal to metal hitting sound. Brakes had been changes bout 2 months ago .there very squeaky though.not sure if that's got anything to do with. Really annoying and doesn't sound safe.
    Help appreciated.thanks

    Also the brake pedal makes a very spongey sound and it's a loud spongey noise but haven't noticed a change on the braking quality hmmm

    Have you got any judder through the wheel as you brake?.

    Could be a sticking piston in a caliper. I had it and it was a really bad judder through the steering when I was braking.

    Strip them down and apply plenty of copper slip to the required places if they're squealing

    Mines always made a slight 'squelch' noise since I've owned it.

    Did yours do it before the brakes were worked on?
