FairladyLexi Posted January 20 Share Posted January 20 (edited) Hi guys, I've got a really annoying issue with my Z! During low-speed braking, there's a horrible creaking noise that happens in a sort of 'back and forth' manner (bit like a squeaky bed) as the wheel is turning. I thought it was old pads and discs, so I had the rears changed in November and the noise went away. It's now come back in the last few days, exactly as it was before. Things to note: Only happens during low-speed braking, especially when coming to a stop. Does not happen when braking whilst reversing. Does not happen at all when braking via just the handbrake, whether lightly or strongly. Gets louder the more the brakes are used. Doesn't seem to happen when cold. There's also quite a loud, singular click that comes from the rear when pulling away from a stop. I've tried pushing back the dust shields on both sides to no effect. Brake cleaning spray has no effect and there are no signs of grooves being worn into the discs, so debris is unlikely the cause. The noise is very similar to in this video, so my next guess is the wheel bearings/hubs. If anyone has had this issue and has any ideas, it would be very helpful! Thanks, Lexi Edit: I forgot to mention that my car is a JDM example with the non-Brembo brakes. Edited January 20 by FairladyLexi Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
