    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone could advise me. I bought a used 5series MSport 525d from Chandlers in Sussex in April. Since then I have had the most annoying noisy front brakes! Every time I brake in slow traffic or make the car stationary the front brakes emit a very loud annoying whine!

    I have taken the car back to Chandlers once already and they re-greased the brakes and said that with new brakes they can take up to 2000 miles to 'break-in' and hence the whining sound. The car has 12 month unlimited mileage warranty.

    Can anybody advise what the problem is and how to fix it? Its really annoying! Also how do I deal with the dealership? Surely they should fix this?

    Best wishes,

    Joe.

    You may have to have new discs and pads fitted if they cannot remedy the problem.
