Lexus specialist in Edinburgh


Recommended Posts

Hi just bought a rx400h from Oxford . Can hear a clunking / knocking mechanical sound when braking also a sqeaking mostly  when pressing brake pedal at the last bit of travel 

 I got a 12 month warranty for nationwide cover for unexpected issues. 

Any ideas what it could be and anyone have the names of any lexus specialists in edinburgh. Thanks Patrick

Clunking noise could be the pads moving slightly in the callipers, normally you hear this as you change direction (forward/reverse) as the pads are pushed from one end to the other - you don't normally get it with repeated braking in a forward direction unless the clips are missing. A bit of brake grease will normally help.

You can also get a clunking if the bottom slider pins (which commonly seize) haven't been put back with the bushing installed.

Squealing could be the anti-squeal shims missing or lack of grease.

Hi Patrick, I am also based in Edinburgh. Have you found any good garage worth recommending?
