Brakes droning / humming noise on cornering
Just put some grooved discs, EBC greenstuff pads and braided hoses on my 147... Expected the whirring, droning noise on braking, but I'm getting a horrible droning / resonance noise on cornering that goes away with light application of brakes! It also does it pulling away first thing in the morning, going straight.
First thought was calipers binding slightly, so took apart last night, fliled, regreased everything...still doing the same. Weird that it happens mostly on cornering, or cornering sets it off. 99% sure it's not wheel bearings as the noise frequency doesn't change with speed. You can feel the vibration through the steering wheel and sometimes a little wheel braking effect when it kicks in. The noise occurs less at higher road speeds.
Any ideas anyone?
