S1 Disco Brakes

Hi,

My 300TDI Disco has picked up another curios noise.

When the brakes are first applied I hear a loud “tick” from the nearside front.

The bus still brakes true and the noise does not happen in reverse. I guess the pads moving in the calliper.

Has anyone had similar?

Cheers,

Neil

Yes, the pads are moving. I get the same thing with my Vogue SE ABS system. Not too much to worry about, just sounds a bit manky.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.

I for some reason replaced the split pins with cotter types and the pads are moving on first contact.

A bit of minor modification with a heavy adjustment tool has cured the problem.

Cheers,

Neil
