    Unhappy Squeaking coming from rear brakes :(

    I had a horrible loud squeak coming from my rear brakes and it was embarrising when driving around 30 through a built up area if u pulled the handbrake a couple of notches it would go, anyway the pads were very low and seeing as i work for a motor factors i could get rear discs and pads for just under £40 so i put them on a few weeks ago. after driving the car for abit today i had that horrid squeak come back not impressed at all. is this a common problem on mk4s and is there a cure??

    yeah fairly common.work for vauxhall and at this time of year i see alot of astra gs and zafiras wit the problem.its coz of all the shit on the road and the water.if u strip em and clean em and really copper grease em up wen re fitting it will go away but will prob return, either that or u may have a siezed caliper- also common on astra g and zafira.there are vauxhall reworks for caliper replacement, depending on age of car.

    My rear brakes make a scraping and squeeking noise when the weather is cold or wet as well. I always notice and the noise annoys me!

    on mine the bosch pads are a different part number from the lucas ones. Mine is a Jan 2000 registered car btw.

    when I got my Astra i had an occasional squeak from the passenger side rear. I replaced the pads with bosch ones from Vauxhall and the problem has went away. The pads I removed were a poor fit and looked like cheap alternatives.
