    Given the car isn't getting as much use as normal the brakes have started to really stick on after it has been left for an extended period of time (over a week) This also seems to happen if the car is gently rolled to a stop and left on a level drive without the handbrake on. It's so bad that...

    Hi All Apologies if I am replicating a thread that already exists but I couldn't see anything Under normal braking I am experiencing a judder which would lead me to believe I need to change my discs and pads (normal enough) however when the brakes are used a bit harder and they get some heat...

    Hi All! Just wondering if anyone has a scooby as to why; when turning the steering wheel to the right only, a sharp squeek/creaking sound is made? I would not have a clue as to what is casuing it? Is it a bushing or some joint which needs lubrication? Someone said to me it might be the break...

    Hi, I've had a persistent clunk coming from the back of the car since I bought it in May. It's not very loud but noticeable. It can usually replicate it by accelerating and letting off, or braking but not every time. I renewed the rear shocks, springs and ARB links and the noise was still...

    This story concerns my Daughter's car, a Mk1 Focus 1.6. She had new Pads and Disks fitted all round back in February, and has covered 5000 miles since. No problems were felt or reported since, and the car had no brake related issue at its MOT, done only a month ago. She called me on Monday...

    Just had an MOT as coming up for three years old. It failed with a 36% imbalance at the front. They checked them out, and discovered completely wrong pads on one side! They have a much smaller area, huge chamfer, and a groove. There's no reason they would have been removed for the first two...

    A few months ago I had my front pads changed (pretty sure it was the original set that was changed as car had low mileage when I got it) and ever since if i ever need to brake hard at high speed unexpectedly, car pulls to the right (I counter with left steering and i end up with a little fish...

    Hi guys, Been lurking on here a while but first time posting. I bought a PFL Colorado Red ST back in December of last year. Had a little browse around before making this post but haven't come across anything, so figured I'd throw this out there. A month ago I had a few bits replaced...

    Right I have an annoying wobble going on. I changed the discs and pads all around over Christmas due to shaky steering wheel when braking. All was good since up till a few weeks ago. It can be an intermittent occurrence but more often than not. I changed the wishbone bushes on the front as they...

    is it just me or are the front brake discs larger than the rear? just cleaned the alloys by hand and some Megs Hot Rims to take the worst of the weekends driving off, and noted that i could get my hand around the rear wheels fine, but my hand kept getting caught on the front discs -- and i have...

    I have a interesting noise going on with the brake pedal. After a few depressions it starts to creak. Quite annoying!! And I also noticed when stationary that when I depress the pedal there a hissing/air escaping noise. Is there something afoot?

    Last week I went to SCC performance for some work on my ST. This included a set of k sport brakes which have been a costant problem, there is a terrible grinding noice and vibrates on the pedals. It stops as soon as any pressure is applied to the brakes then starts again once my foot is off the...
