I've got a squeaking/squealing/whining sort of noise coming from my rear brakes. It only happens when the car has been driven about 5 miles (Using the brakes often) or more and the brakes are warm.
Plus, it only happens around 20mph (Ish) to 45mph (Ish). If I Ever so slightly touch the brake pedal or pull the handbrake up two clicks, it disappears until coming off the brake pedal or putting the handbrake back down.
The noise gets faster and slower depending to the speed of the car.
I've just had brand new front discs and pads fitted, but it was doing it before they were fitted and definitely from the rear. Checked the history and the brakes on the rear were done 3k miles ago.
The garage had a look at it and said there was no grease in the caliper, so they put grease in there and charged me £50! They also said it "Shouldn't do it anymore, but it was never a major issue..." Lot of effing help.
Anyone had the same sort of problem or can anyone shed some light on what it may be? It's annoying, especially considering I have to drive at them sort of speeds in most places.
Any ideas on what I should do? My mechanical skills are limited.
Car is a 2001 Astra Coupe Turbo - It's on 18's with 215 wide tyres.
