Noisy brakes / groaning noise when pulling away

Post by mark135800 » Fri Mar 15, 2019 4:45 pm

Hi

Wondered if anyone else has experienced a noisy braking system - I think it is the physical brakes, not the regeneration - but hard to tell. And, when pulling away from standstill a sort of "groaning" noise from around the brake pedal area?

Mine has started doing it, so a visit to the dealer will be forthcoming but wanted to see if I was alone with this experience....

Thanks

Yes, so do I. It could be because the brakes are used much less than on ICE cars but I thing the cause is:

when the airsuspension raises, while the brakes are still "on" it can give some friction due to smal change in angle between shaft / brakes / airsuspension. Also when somebody exits the car (air-suspension gets lowered), I also experience some "groaning" from the brakes.

I was thinking of posting on the same topic. Only done <600 miles so far, not sure what is “normal “. I get a bit of a graunching sound on braking slightly hard at very low speeds. It sounds like rusty discs (a noise I used to get a lot on a car that sat unused for long periods). I am assuming it is the friction brakes still bedding in, as they get such little use, and so I would expect it to go away after a while.
So, to those of you who’ve had their cars for a while, is this noise normal when new, and does it go away?
I have noticed any strange noise on pulling away. But yes, raising or lowering the air suspension whilst in Park gives the expected creaks and groans.

I have exactly this noise too. It’s not always but most prevalent at low speed when i brake a little too firmly to stop. Sadly I’ve done 4500 miles and it’s still happening so not sure when it will wear off....

Me too. Technician told me to use the brakes more in the first 500 miles.
My company car is a Firenze Red I-Pace HSE with Black Trim, HUD, Cold Weather Pack and Fog Lights.
