Normal pads. Shoes and disks all 2 years and 12000 miles old

Noise doesnít change a lot with the handbrake on

Omega General Help / Rear wheel bearings?
« on: 19 October 2018, 16:28:51 »
So big blue has a noise thatís been going on a little bit.

Itís coming from the rear and sounds a bit like the brake pads are catching. Took them out cleaned up callipers and it remains.

It varies in noticeable ness with road surface and speed. Can also feel the Ďpulseí through the handbrake. I canít detect play, but I rarely can to be honest.

Blue is now at 172k and I think they are both original.

With the back of the car in the air with engine on and in drive it is noticable. Wheels donít spin particularly freely if spin by hand so think there is resistance somewhere

Evident both side but passenger side is worst.

Thoughts? I was thinking brakes initially and could still be tempted to take the callipers off and give them a good clean but not very hopeful after the pad out clean didnít do a lot

Thinking now to chuck it in for both wheel bearings. No way am I attempting it myself if it is that.

The old Zafira, one of the more powerful at 150bhp was ok for me in all honesty, I do mostly A road driving, and quite twisty ones at that, so being being able to quickly and safely get past trucks and tractors in small opportunities is a must.  I didn't want stupid speeds in my next one, but ideally a little quicker.  That said, I do seem to have bought one which is more of an improvement than I needed too :D

Ive gone for a 2013 model with 51000 on the clock.

Hard to get the right balance of Power, Condition, Age, Mileage and economy

No idea. Think itís historic from when the 220 was a 2.2 the 250 a 2.5 and 300 a 3.0

Could just be marketing. Neither know nor care. Itís a name.

Serviced big blue. Needs a rear brake cleanup though as the pads are sticking ever so slightly and making a little noise as they catch going round....

And traded in the Zafira and C3 Picasso

Done the deed today and a replacement comes next week  :D

From memory pfl was lowered just using shocks
Facelift was springs and shocks

Fluid, not pads.

The sensor is in the tank in the engine bay, when is a bit low you get the handbrake light intermittantly.

Low brake fluid.
