2010 STI Brake Creaking noise + Video


Recommended Posts

Hey there team

 

My sti has developed a bit of a creaking noise in the front brakes whic is mainly noticeable at low speeds or when pumping the pedal when stationary 

 

On the road the brakes work fine, pads are relatively new (Dixcel) had them on a year now

 

I pulled the front wheels off and removed pads etc but couldn't see anything off or anything cleaned them up a bit but made no difference, fluid is all at the right level as well

 

Link to video below so you can hear the noise this is pumping the pedal slowly

I had the exact same thing with my old V11 Spec C.

Unfortunately I dont recall if or how I fixed mine. 

 

Ah bugger Sounds like it might be common then 🤔

Is it inside or outside the noise is from?

If it’s inside then

I had a similar thing in another car and it was the rod to the master cylinder. the rod is rounded and sits in a concave bit and it ran out of grease.

The other thing that makes sound is the return spring on the top or the mounting bolts coming loose.

also split firewalls where the welds around the booster mount start to go.

Did they fit the metal shims to the back of the pads?

Mine only squeak when actually stopping, never stationary 

 

Yeah mine have those installed it's not really a squeak more a creak

Pop ye bonnet, and get a buddy to listen near the brake master cylinder as you depress the brake . I recon Gripless is onto it.
