I know a few of you guys have had the problem of something squeeking when driving your corsa c (think its something to do with the brakes). Well this has just started happening to mine, just wondered what everyone done to overcome it????

Took mine to vaux and got a new set of pads, providing its within 1st year. They said i had managed to wear them out in 8k! They are obviously too soft for the disks.

yep, i had worn down my brake pads, they have a little metal clip on them that when the brake pad reaches it they scrape along the brake disc to tell u they need changing.

Yeah my car has suffered from this for the past 4 or 5 months. It squeaked constantly while driving. it kind of stopped when I applied the brake gently, but the harder I pressed it just squeaked again!
Took it back to vaux twice. 1st time they said the pads were fine. They said they would re-glaze them. It was fine for a few days, then it come back again. The 2nd time they said they itís a common problem due to general brake dust and couldnít do anything about it under warranty. So I just gave up and left it.

Last week when I fitted my new wheels, I took a small brush and cleaned all the dust off around the callipers and pads. Made sure I got into every tiny gap lol and its been fine all week, no squeaking

mine also done this

i took it to vaux twice and they took the whole brake system aprt, they asured me there was no problem, after the second time it was still sqeeking so i took it to garage localy which fitted my suspension for me and he said i had a cracked pad on the inside off my drivers side.

Went to vaux said that that was prob and they changed pads for me under warrenty

These are all common problems, my Dad is a driving instructor and has had 2 Sxi's and they have both had all of the problems listed above plus more problems too. He waits til service time to get them fixed tho cos if he takes his car in during the week he'll be loosing money where he could have been teaching

Brake dust causes brakes to squeek more often than not, it has a certain resonant frequency and when the road/braking vibration makes it reach that, then it squeeks. Or something. Mine just stopped squeeking, they're not worn down as I checked them and they have a break wear light on the dash anyway.
