    Default 85 505 s rear end noise

    Mates,

    I am encountering rear end noise much like that of a draging brake rotor at speeds under 30km at higher speeds it stops any ideas?

    Have a search through this forum on the well documented problem of 505's getting their rear calipers locked on after using the hand brake.

    "All of its cars from the 1.1 litre 205 through the ugly duckling 309 to the 2.2 litre 505 GTi had a rightness and a righteousness about them that turned every humdrum drive into a journey. Someone, I once wrote, in the bowels of Peugeot understands handling and how a chassis should feel." - Jeremy Clarkson

    the rear calipers where locked tight as a winch on the rotors have to turn the rotors and new brakes thanks for the insight

    Is it in the common faults forum, Nick?

    If so, go to that forum and do a search there... just put in 'brake' or 'lock*' and you'll soon find it.
