HI All,

I recently purchased a GP with 160miles on the clock from an individual that had it sitting in a display. I was lucky to find one!

It has about 600miles now and on several occassions I hear a knocking sound from the rear. It seems as though when I apply the brakes this happens. It does not happen all the time but when it happens its quite a loud knock! Just a single knock.

Has anyone experienced this problem?

Thanks

It will most likely be the rear brake pads moving slightly in the calipers - my RHD GP did the same for a few miles and then settled down.

Does it just do it when you first apply the brakes in either forward or reverse then you get a slight knock. Also does it only do it some of the time - if so I am fairly sure it is what I have writen above.
