    I get a bit of a clunk when pulling off. ??????no smutty jokes please. Usually after the cars been left a few days and the discs have got a bit of surface rust I’m by the sea and this happens overnight ususlly. If I’m using car every day doesn’t happen. Been I  touch with ford today and told handbrake wants a service and £90. Not bothered about how much it costs. Just want to know if anyone else experiences this and should i get it looked at?

    probably just a bit of surface rust on the discs sticking to the brake pads overnight with a bit of damp/salt in the air. Wouldn’t worry about it myself. Maybe if you can leave it with the handbrake off one night and see if it still clunks in the morning.



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit?

    Yeah I’ll try that. I was off work for the weekend so using the car regularly and didnt do it once. It seems to happen when I’m at work and the car parks about 200yards from the sea. Discs get surface rust in 24hrs and working on a ship it can get left a few days.
