    I was having vibration through my steering wheel under braking so decided to investigate. Just as well I did or could've been looking at another set of discs at least.:panic:

    The sliders were sticking.

    But a bit of freeing off and a set of new pads and all is good again.:D

    It was the inside pad right? IMHO, my inside ones tends to wear out first so if the outer one still looks like it has 3mm worth of pad, the inside is gone.

    Just my 2-cents ...I'd replace the discs anyway if I were you.

    Lol They're not even a year old, they just look scabby but loads of meat on them yet and the vibration has gone. It was being caused by the sliders sticking. As for the pad, I just caught it in time by chance before sparks flew.
