    what van you got Phil?
     
  6. A couple of years back our Zaffie (now gorn to a new home... :( ) started making a high-pitched squealing sound almost all the time when on the move.

    Being clued-up an all tha', I suspected the brake warning depth thingies so checked the front discs - 'cos we all know that front discs wear much faster than rears.

    They were fine. So the squeal continued for many a week afterwards.

    Only to be replaced by a more serious scuffing/graunching noise when braking.

    Miffed, I checked the rears. Hmmm - that's some seriously deep grooves in that rear disc from metal to metal contact... :oops:

    Yes very happy, it's an old 1997 model, I've had it for 10 years and in all that time it's only needed a new radiator and one ball joint and general servicing, though as you can see by the brake pads, I wasn't on the ball with that as often as I should have been. :oops::oops:
