    Astra Sport Brake Problem?

    Hi All,

    Before I take my car to the garage I'm after some advice.

    Currently when driving there is a strange deep humming/wurring sound coming from my car, when I brake it stops but then starts again.

    I'm thinking it's linked to my brakes but not sure.

    Anyone else suffered from similar symptoms?

    Cheers.

    Humming?

    Astra-G have "audible brake pad wear warning" - a piece of resonant material attached to each brake pad - when the pad wears down to it's prescribed limit the material touches the rotating disk and hums!

    Check your brake pads for wear.

    Alright,ive got a noise like that in my sport aswell,but it kinda eminates from the middle of the car,as if like a drive shaft was turning down the centre of the car and rubbing,not sure its the same tho.

    You know what, I think mine is coming from pretty much the centre too.

    I'm booking it in to my local garage this week so will let you know, keep me posted.

    check your oil,i just put about 3litres into mines!!!I think the noise has gone but ive not had the car quite when moving so i cant tell,but the engine sounds much more quiet(sounded like a diesel when sitting idle!!,aparently the oil pumps tend to go and a piston rod can snap so i hope its not that) so im assuming the same will go for that noise
