'97 Pug 306 XSI 16v Problems... - Rob16vxsi
Hi all, my first post in this forum and I would very grateful if someone could help!

I have recently purchased a '97 16v 306 XSI. The car is brilliant and I am very happy with it apart from a couple of niggling issues.

The first one is pretty obvious what the fault is but I was wondering if anyone else had the problem? basically the front brakes squeak like mad, and under hard braking they sort of whine/rub. The brakes were checked (by previous owner - I have receipt) at a garage last month, cleaned, and reported that they were OK, but the noise is still there. Should I try changing the pads before going the whole hog and changing disks as well? Any ideas how much disks/pads cost?

The following two faults are a little less obvious. Firstly, when the car is decelerating, when it hits somewhere between 2000 and 2300 revs the car will jerk, then it is fine again. It doesn't do this when accelerating. Its also noticeable if I change gear and let the clutch out when the engine is around that rev range, which causes the gear change to feel very jumpy! Any ideas what this might be? The car has only done 52K and has been serviced every 5K from new.

My final problem appears when accelerating. When I hit around 3250 revs, there is a slight vibration noise somewhere from the front of the car, then it goes away. It doesn't appear when decelerating. I'm not sure if this is some vibration from the exhaust or something?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You should always change the pads when fitting new disks anyway.
