Re: Noise When Brakes Bite
The noise you describe sounds a bit like what my 155 does under hard breaking when I come to a stop. Just as everything stops. After you've breaked if you reverse and put you foot lightly on the break can you hear a little click. As if the pads are moving slightly.If you can then its the tensioners on the pads which have got a little tired allowing pad movement in the caliper. I put new pads in mine and it stopped the click and the vump noise but the vump noise came back after a couple of thousand miles. Just pad vibration by my guess. Hope that helps.
