Hey everybody

Yesterday i took off my rims and gave em a proper clean, inside and out.
They look pretty schmick now. The problem now is there's this swishing sound coming from the front right wheel at low speeds. I got home, took the rim off again and turned it holding the studs, again this swishing sound so i know its nothing to do with the fitting of the rim. It feels a bit tight when it rotates to one spot, and the swishing sound starts. Are my discs warped? Problems with the hub? whats the go?

The pads will always rub slightly on the rotor, it will go away after driving. If it doesnt the caliper sliding part could be seized or there is some dirt in between the pads and rotor.

Sure it's not coming from the rear of the car? On a BA that sounds exactly like a handbrake needing adjusting, very common on BA's.

Thats what i was worried about at first, but it was definately the front of the car. Jacked the car up, turned the front right wheel, swishy swishy. Gone now though, must of been a bit of dust or something. Ill keep an eye (or an ear? :lol: ) on it though
