Brakes fail traveling at15/20m makes a grinding sound, but brakes ok at speed.


A grinding sound usually suggests metal to metal contact but, as you say, you have changed the pads and disks.

What springs to mind is that that the brake backing plate - the metal disk on the inboard side - are being touched by the spinning disk, or the noise is being caused by a driveshaft or bearing.

However, there are other possibilities. Are there any shims in your braking system? Shims hold the pads in place and stop squeal/rattle.

It also could be that the pads are not being fully released from the disk when the brake pedal is pressed. Depending on your calliper set up it may be something as simple as a slide that is sticking and needs cleaning.

Brake pads are released from the disk by what is nothing more than the spinning of the disk 'knocking' things back. Assisted by rubber sleeves on 'slide pins'. Something may be sticking and need cleaning and a smear of copper grease added.

It would be too easy to say that you have a vacuum leak (or internal seal) problem in the brake servo. A servo problem usually results in a 'hard' brake pedal at all speeds. You don't have this problem.

It may well be that your brakes feel 'spongy' at low speeds because the pads are not being shoved back from the disk because of sticking slides (depending on your system).

It also may be that the pistons in your calliper are sticking.

You obviously can work on cars and use tools - consider overhauling your brake callipers (look on Ebay for overhaul kits) but bear in mind that doing this also means you have to bleed the brakes.

A light clicking sound followed after several minutes by a series of beeps, this is for a 60gb st96812as SEAGATE drive. Disk is unmountable with MACOS Disk Utility.


The clicking noise is possibly the reader arm skipping across the platters on your hard drive
a dirty hard first clean all of the dust from your computer using a fine air blower using a vacuum cleaner with no metal piping you might short your motherboard out if metal touches anything
or a fine air blower from a compressor making sure there is no MOISTURE in the air line then give the hard drive a firm tap on one side to free up the read arm
you could run the check disk utility
Click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which willscan for and attempt to repair any bad
sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive
then defragment your hard drive
don't do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage your computer
It might be power or data trying to get a connection make sure all power and data leads are securely attached

if this fails you might have a dirty hard driver with the reader arm skipping across the platters on your hard drive


give the hard drive a firm tap on the side to free up the reader arm you might be able to get it going long enough to salvage your data or it might go for a longer time


or you might use the freeze hard drive

Is it possible to recover data from the disk inside the external hard disk?


See first this clicking sound is not good in terms of hard drive failure as continuous clicking is one of the symptom of hard drive failure.
Secondly you have tried to do something with the hard drive by your own that you should not as it is always recommended that you should not open your hard drive in any open environment except Class 100 Clean Room Labs that is only available with Professional Data Recovery Company.

This is recommended because opening the hard drive in an open environment can damage your hard drive severely thus it reduces the chances of successful data recovery from the hard drive.


Now if your data is really very important then i would suggest you to take help from a professional data recovery company.

I lost power at my house and when the powr came back on my hard drive won't turn back on


how do you know that your hard disk is not turning on? Get the message displayed on the screen when you turn on your desktop first, if it says "boot device failed" or something like that (depends on motherboard model, company and bios version) , check your hard disk is detected or not by bios if not so, open your desktop cup's cover were something made with plastic or rubber on you hand and touch hard disk to see if it is running while pc is on (if running, you will feel something moving inside). If hard disk is detected by bios then it's a case of damaged operating system, just recover or re install operating system. This kind of problem happens for bad sector of hard disk caused by sudden power loss. If hard disk is not detected by bios or running, make sure machine is turned off first, just unplug the power cord of hard disk and plug it back then restart your machine to see if hard disk runs. If not so , go to some repairing shop to check your hard disk.

It sounds loud inside the car not outside but there no holes in it


Could be that it's touching something metal underneath, causing the vibration and rumble to be transferred directly to the cab. Could also be a rock wedged in there.


Hope that helps!

1 tb external hard disk. Will not back up, won't get off cleaning up or indexing backup. No noise, but when I touch it, it fells like something is rubbing inside.


The external storage device has several major components:

* USB cable

* external power-supply

* disk-drive inside the enclosure

* USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

Try a different USB cable.
Try a different USB port on your computer.
Try a USB port on a different computer.

Take a multi-meter, and measure the output voltage/amperage of the power-supply,
and compare with the specifications on the label of the power-supply.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and attach it as a "slave" drive in a desktop computer, to see if bypassing the USB-to-disk-drive adapter bypasses the problem.

Look at the label on the disk-drive, for manufacturer, product-number, serial-number, and manufacture date. Access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status" to see if the warranty still is valid. If so, the drive can be replaced, at minimal cost to you.

Buy a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Search online for a professional "data recovery service". For a significant fee, they can repair your disk-drive, just long-enough to copy your files to a new disk-drive.

How ot install hard disk?


1. VITAL: unplug computer.
2 EQUALLY VITAL: wait for 1 full minute while board discharges.
3 open side of case.
4. VITAL ALSO: touch your hand to internal metal part of case to discharge static from your body
4 unplug old hard disk, then remove mounting screws from it.
5 remove old hard drive.
6 before handling new hard drive touch metal inside case again. (if you have a static band use it otherwise keep touching the metal case frequently to prevent static from "zapping" your computer parts.)
reverse this order to install new one. it will be recognized by computer on its own.

Rattle from rear of car (2005 Audi A3, 3.2 Quattro)


Hard to say what it is without a visual inspection. Take it to the nearest repair shop as soon as possible.
I don't think its a suspension issue cause especially in an A3 you would see it in the curb height and feel it in the ride.

Maybe there's something on the inside that is hitting or rubbing on the CD. Try looking inside of the disk bay to see if there is anything that would be touching the cd that may not be needed, and remove it.
