Welcome to JA. My name is***** am a fully qualified vehicle technician with over thirty years in the trade. I will be happy to assist you today. Hopefully we can get this resolved quickly. You will receive an offer of a phone call by the system, this only needs to be accepted if you wish to speak to me, I can otherwise continue to answer your questions via the thread.

Whilst a light grinding or scaping noise may be present due to the vehicle standing and allowing a light film of corrosion to build up on the brake discs, this may also give a light vibration, a clunk in not a noise which should be present. This would suggest some think is moving then hitting another component. This could be movement in the brake pads due to the extra friction on the brake discs, but I would not be happy that this was occurring.

For a 2021 vehicle, there should be no clunks or knocks.

I hope this answers your question but I want you to be 100% happy with the answer so do please feel free to ask any further details by replying to this thread. Thank you for using Just Answer
