Actually, the sound appears as I apply a little pressure on the pedal
for smooth deceleration at low speeds. The spring-like cracking sound
is definately exterior but I’m unsure if at fron or rear.
I read somewhere that brake pad shims may need replacing as they may
allow movement of the pad.
At 140,000 miles (230 000km), brakes have been services a few time so
I may just replace them and see...
