Creaking Under Braking
« on: May 16, 2019, 09:53:32 am »
What started off as an internittant creak/knock has turned into a full time creaking noise in my mk5 golf.

At first I thought it was suspension creaking of some kind, because that's what it sounds like to me. However as it's developed and become consistant it has become apparent that it's only under braking that noise occurs. Specifically light braking at medium to low speeds. At high speed you get no noise what so ever, same with heavy braking.

It's booked in next week for my garage to have a look at, it's just bugging me in the meantime. It really does sound awful at times!

This noise is back!

I replaced the discs and pads which seemed to fix it for 6 months or so, but now it's back with a vengeance.

Hard braking doesn't cause it, just light low speed braking. It also creaks if you rock the car with the hand brake on, but doesn't with the hand brake off.

It's got to be brakes right? I'm thinking just replaced the calipers then it's got to fix it??
