Default noise from Nearside rear (Brake discs)?

I have a noise, most note able going round a right hand bend, I have checked wheel bearing and for play in all wheels, the only thing I have found is that the inner face of the disc is very badly pitted, I wondered if that is the cause of the noise.















The other thing is as the pads look pretty meaty, would I be okay to just replace the brake discs on both axles without replacing the pads??















Any sensible advise would be grateful

I have no idea why you would waste your $ doing that.















Your noise can be fixed for 10 bucks.

It could be the disc as it rubs against the pads if there is no other obvious reason for the noise.If the pads are good just run some emery cloth on a straight block of wood over them to take off any unevenness before refitting them after replacing or re-surfacing the brake disc

if the disk is rusty then the calliper is not working, as the pressure of the pad on the disc, when braking normally would keep it bright! a noise from the n/s/r on a right hand corner would indicate a defective wheel bearing, as the weight of the vehicle and the load are transferred to the n/s bearing.

As you have checked the wheel bearings it can only be the roughness on the disc. The pads are in light contact with the discs all the time and the wheel bearing has some play which may allow the pad to rub slightly on the rough area.















There is no requirement to renew pads when to fit new discs. Most people do it for convenience. But if you have plenty of wear left it will be fine. Bear in mind that the old pads will still have to bed in to the new discs, so braking will improve when this has occurred.

Most likely is ur disk worn out or warped. U can skimmed the disc or replaced a new set. U can use back ur brake pad if it's still new, but u need to run-in the new rotor (estimated around 500km

Try applying copper grease to the pad locating pins. these are known to seize on honda,s and cause knocking when turning
