Rear Discs

Recommended Posts

Hey ppl need to know if anyone else gets a noise coming from what i can only think is the rea discs when going round corners, going round left hand corner the rear right and the opposite, the only thing i can think off is the weight of the car is moving the disc or caliper and just slightly touching it ?

Any thoughts

Cheers Elliott

Have you just replaced discs or pads? Or are they old ones

Changed the front ones not the rear ones

The pads have a 'Audible' warning finger that vibrates under braking and cornering.. These act to inform you the pads need to be changed soon... Some cars use wire/electric on the dash indicators, the Lex uses the audible option.

My 200 had exactly the same problem and had both myself and the Lexus techy scratching our heads. He was going to fit additional retainer springs to the pads but after checking the rear plates/dustguards found they were rubbing. Bent them back and hey presto...no noise :)

Also while on the topic of disc my front ones i have just changed along with pads are very screeeeechy they've done about 700-1000 miles which i tried my best to easy them in, i have had a few goes at slamming the achors on now but the noise is still there,

Any wise knowledge on this problem ???????

What pads did you put on? I use Mintex and not had any undue noise.

Also on the rubbing problem, it was corrosion build-up which caused the original problem on the backplate/dust covers, so have a wire brush handy. The noise appeared initially going round corners/roundabouts, but if I had the windows down I could still hear it at low speeds on the straight. Drove me mad for months as I thought like you that it was the pads rubbing on the discs...

Not really mate no. I cut away most of mine when I fitted the skyline caliper and Mat said that there's none on the Monster.

Sorry mate, mine was the front. But I suppose the same applies anyway
