Hi all, I've picked up a new (to me) VX220 and I've discovered today the brakes squeals like a bitch under 10mph when I brake slowly. Sharp braking don't do the squealing (as far as I'm aware). Put it this way - I'm profoundly deaf, and I can't hear a jet engine even when standing next to one with hearing aids rated at 140dB amplification. But I can feel the squeal coming through the seat and steering wheel. It's that bad. At one point, when I braked, someone else did an emergency stop thinking it was a horn or something.
Looking at the sale advert, it says it has new Mintex 1144 pads, but nothing about discs, I presume it's on factory discs. How should I fix the squealing? I'm fairly handy with a spanner, I replaced 4 discs & pads on my Mondeo a few months back - which doesn't squeal as far as I'm aware! I know it's a Vauxhall and noise is to be expected, but I tend not to like drawing attention to myself for producing a noise louder than my horn.
Advice greatly appreciated!
