For a couple of weeks now I had been noticing a persistent rubbing noise from one front wheel of my V70 its been slowly getting worse.
So this morning I finally got round to taking the wheel off and giving it a look see.
It turned out that the rust ring on the inside of the disc was considerably wider than outside, that rust had started and due to the virus lockdown had had a chance to build to the point where normal usage didnt clear it off the disc. in fact the rubbing noise was the slowly expanding rust binding on the pad and wearing them down. I have temprorarily cured the problem using a sanding tool on a cordless multitool, taking the disc off and sanding the rust down to the level of the rest of the disc, the pads still have plenty of wear as do the discs, but if the problem returns all it will need are new discs and pads, for now the noise has disappeared, all it needs is a few hundred miles of use (normally a few days driving, but in the last 3 months working from home I have done less than 2 days worth of my normal commute.
