Default Ignis brakes

A couple of minor issues - the brakes (I think) keep squealing on our 2017 Ignis, worse on left hand bends and it stop under hard braking - any ideas? It's a long way to the dealer and it's intermittent so hesitant to book it in.

The other is the rear drums - they are externally quite badly corroded. The dealer said it's "normal" but it does look quite tatty - anyone had this and would something like Hammerite sort it? With the fairly "open" wheels it does detract from an otherwise nice looking car/

In the first instance, I would try firm repeated application of the brakes from speed in an attempt to clean up the surfaces of the pads and discs. If this doesn't do the trick then the pads and discs may need to be de-glazed after dismantling.

Brake drums will corrode and you can either use calliper paint or Hammerite. If using Hammerite, I'd suggest Hammerite spray barbecue paint - it's temperature resistant and dries a nice matt black.

Thanks! I’m taking it in the the 15th to see if they’ll do it (the dealers we bought it from); the ads I’ve looked at for similar ages cars all have drums in far better condition. I live right by the sea so they’ll only get much worse!

Squeal from the front when cornering may indicate a bearing issue..

I did wonder about that; the slight problem is, I can’t tell if it’s coming from the front or back!

If it's a MY17, why not seeing this under the warranty?
You could claim to replace all parts and make it new..

Always worth trying the warranty. However - surface rust on brake drums wouldn't be covered by warranty - all drums corrode and there may be, as indicated, factors that influence corrosion. Similarly, the dealer may class noisy brakes as a maintenance item rather than a warranty repair.

Yes you are right - this thought is correct .
But a try does not blame - even you can receive a good discount on new parts or labours.

It’s booked in for Monday; the service guy seemed to know what he was doing and will do something about the squeal and the corrosion. He confirmed the brakes were bled on the service it had two days before we bought it.

Brakes cleaned, drums stripped and painted black - they look MUCH better now!
