    Ok I have a new annoying noise !@$@#
    have a rattle that sounds like it is coming from the rear of the car (underneath) I thought it was a loose heat shield but have fastened the loose bit back and am still getting the noise, also just discovered that I get the same noise (for a quick second) when I am rolling and apply the brakes.

    has anyone else had this? its getting really annoying now

    I can only hear it when I have the windows open, which is mmore and more now the sun is here :jump:

    cheers guys

    howay man gimme some credit!:scared2:

    tried driving while riding the brakes, and the noise seems to stay off, (hard to tell as not always there)

    need to have a look when I get a day off and see what I can do to get rid of it

    I hear the Ferodo ones are good, bite well and dont seem to fade, but then you would prob need to do the fronts so as not to unbalance the car
