Default SWIFT-VXI brake issue

Dear friends,

Since yesterday evening I am facing a starnge problem in the brake.Once I press the brake and while releasing it i can hear a strange sound like"cut-cut".Though it is very small sound but still I can feel that coming from the brake pedal.

Today morning after reaching the office,I tried it in the parking and yes...the sound is there.There is no issue with the performance of braking though.

Please suggest me friends,do i need to go to workshop immediately?

Thanks and regards.

Are you specifically observing the sound on inclined ground surface ?

I have observed this while using the car after few days of non-use, and have assumed it to be some mechanical part which has become a bit rusty.

This was reported by Geeksrik in his long term report, its a wet brake pad. Will go away after the pad dries.

1. Any dogs around your parking area?

2. Is the car parked near a watering area, like a garden.

Have you been to a service center recently, in last few days?

A wet brakepad should become dry within ~10 min of driving, as it gets heated up on every braking. If you have a persisting problem, the reason is something else.

Please check for any possibility about stone stuck in between wheel and brake. That could be the reason.
