    Front Disc Problem

    Ok so here i am hoping someone can help with this one.
    I have a 98 Mk4 with 71,000 Miles on the clock.

    I changed by brakepads only 6 months ago and there is a good bit of depth left.
    I also had it serviced by Opel just over 1 month ago.

    However in the past week i have noticed a squeak-ing noise from the front right wheel at low speeds. This is clearly unnacceptable!

    At first i thought it might have been the pads but as i say above they are nowhere near the end of their time. I have also noticed at speed when braking i can feel the brake pedal kind of "hopping" or "catching". Basically its pulsing under my foot until i apply more pressure to the pedal. Today it got worse as i heard the squeak Louder than before when i was turning the car.

    I think its the Disc and that it may be warped.
    Any ideas or Recommendations.

    Might have a stone or piece of metal caught between the pad and disc.

    Best way is to take it all apart, grease it up, then put it back together.

    The pulsing could be the ABS.
