    Squeaking brakes with new T6.1

    The brakes have squeaked ever since I collected the van six months ago. I've now covered nearly 3,000 miles and they still squeak. Why would this be? And is there anything I can do?

    Brake disc wear at 15k on shuttle

    Hi, I’ve just bought a t6 shuttle 18 plate 15k on clock. I’ve noticed there is a bit of a lip on the rear discs compared to the front. Is this normal for this milage on a shuttle. I’m paranoid that it’s been clocked but no real way of finding out I suppose. Thanks Adam
