I would just take it some out and stamp on the breaks couple of times get rid

of the surface rust, but check you have some pads left first otherwise you'll

damage disks.

Its most likely that there is a now lip on the edge of the disk where the pads have worn the disk surface, the pads are worn also and the backing plate on the pads are rubbing against this lip - new pads, and maybe new disks.

Mine makes that noise when it's been stood a while. A good run out with plenty of braking will help.

Yeah i just went outside with my dad and we gave it a few trial test things...
like driving and braking (the sound is not heard from outside.. woo lol)
driving with the handbrake lightly applied..
and it has got quieter so i just need to give it more time.. wasnt good getting into a car and hearing that everytime i broke tho ;) lol

I wouldnt say its anything to be alarmed about, just sounds like comtaminated pads, should soon clear off. Likely cause is where its been sat for a while.
