Newbie on board and I searched all areas for same problem as described in one of the post in technical help, but figured it should be more model directed, so..this post.
I am getting blank stares from dealership garage mechanics, so far....
40k miles service
new front pads, new rear pads, new rear discs.
Service done the week before christmas.
Temperature here in north west UK has been hovering around 0C/32F so nothing drastic. Dipped to maybe -6C overnight. Don't know if that is relevant, but it may be.
On drive back from dealers all was well, no strange noises et cetera. Brakes performed very well.
Following day (wifey) reversed off drive OK. Started forwards and klunking noise from rear wheels area. Stops car, drives forwards again and klunking noise still there kind of in time with wheel rotation.
After about 4th/5th hard brake (including using hand brake a couple of times) the klunking has disappeared. Hmmmm, checked wheels and brakes and all are fixed and not loose.
Car drives fine for rest of day.
And so the same happens each morning (bearing in mind the car is in regular use during day ferrying stuff around so it never kind of cools down far enough I am guessing).
Back at dealers but seeing as dealers is a few miles from home, by the time I get there the noise has once again disappeared.
I insists on dealer coming out to home first thing following morning to witness for himself - which he does and agrees it appears to be related to brakes.
He suggests could be bedding in of new drum/disc assembly so try it over couple of days and ring back in new year.
On my seldom day off (new years day Yay..happy new year
) I jacks the rear left up and find I cannot rotate the wheel easily with transmission in neutral - should I be able to?
Takes car for drive (klunk, klunk, klunk, quiet) and then jacks wheel up again. Still can't rotate without wheel brace on it.
Not a happy bunny.
Anyone got any suggestions before I trade in for motorbike (KTM looks nice).
oh yeah, being newbie - virtual pint on me.
