brake noise

Hi all i have a brake noise i would like some advixe with. I will try and post a recording later.

When i am at very low speed 10kph or less and i am lightly braking i will get a gentle gringing noise from the front left brake and then a small clunk or rattle as i stop.

The car brakes fine and there is no noise if i am braking harder.

The pads look fine and the hubs are not hot after a drive.

The noise only happens when the brakes are warmed up never qhen cold first thing

Any advice ideas?

first thing I would do is jack the car up and take the wheel off and have a look see if everything looks ok and everything is in place check the pad wear

thanks for the reply,

yup had the car jacked up all looks fine, pads have plenty of pad left and braking rapidly is fine.

just a bit odd and on top of all this it seems to have stopped now.......sigh

if it starts up again I would take the pads out clean it all and seat the pads back in making shure they move freely and put some copper slip on if the pads have been in there a while wouldnt hurt to do it anyway
