    Hard to describe this one. Normaly when brakeing you ride the pedal, and before you stop you ease off till coming to a complete hault. Sometimes however i find that i wil slow down and just before i come to a complete hault, it feels as if the pad is sticking then will suddenly release. It dosent happen all the time. I Have had new front discs and pads, however it was still doing this on the old set. Like i say dosent happen all the time. Im thinking maybe one of the front calipers is sticking?

    I had that, got a caliper from a brakers and it solved it. Good excuse to change the fluid too.

    As Tom says, it could be a siezing caliper

    So its not knocking then?,id take the caliper of clean and copper slip up the caliper cariers so the pads can move more freely might not have been cleaned before the new pads wer fitted!
