Brake Noise

drew2009, Nov 12, 1:54am
Occasionally the rear brakes on my Honda Rafaga (4 Wheel Disc Brakes) make a clunk noise while braking. Usually while braking heavily but not always. I want to get this sorted and Im thinking the discs may be warped, but could be something else.
Any ideas where i should start looking and what i should be fixing!.

Have even considered that it may be the rear suspension as brakes dont seem to bad.

definition please--by A clunk do you mean a single clunk or a series of clunks

Does it happen after you have reversed !

Occasionally with after market pads the fit isn??

Single clunk when pedal is depressed. Doesn't continue to clunk continuously.

You may be right actually it does have cheap brake pads in the rear.

Can anyone recommend a better quality replacement brake pad that won't do that!

OE . but probably trial and error . it isn't a problem anyway as long as you know that is what it is, it isn??

could be this just as easily though

Try Honda. you'll get what was designed for the car, price may be a little more though

if it's only that, it's not a problem

Yeah just worried about pedantic wof inspectors giving me shit.
They fussy as hell when it comes to brakes, usually because they don't even grasp the concept of what theyre inspecting, so they just fail everything.
The noise is annoying to.
