I'll have to give this a try. Jumped in the e-Golf (primarily the wife car) and it was make a noise similar to what the OP mentioned at take off.treitenbach wrote: ↑Sun Oct 06, 2019 5:39 pm Thank you for posting the video as it enabled me to confirm we have the exact same sound. We drive almost exclusively in B mode in stop-and-go traffic where one pedal driving is a gift. The brakes are used very little and the explanation of a little rust or dust on the pads and rotors made sense.
I took a 10 minute spin with lots of brake applications and the low speed squeaking (identical to the video at the start of this thread) is gone.
I would like to add this is after a dealer visit where they replaced the bearings, strut mounts and had to realign. All thankfully under warranty.
Love the B mode as well and I also switch in and out it as needed.mpulsiv wrote: ↑Wed Oct 30, 2019 3:08 pm What's the consensus to use "B" mode on demand? Some of us come from 3 pedals and have an itch to shift I have been treating "B" mode like downshift. It's truly awesome.
Someone mentioned that one must take foot off the pedal when switch drive modes (e.g. D1, D2, D3, B) due delay in re-calibration. Nothing relevant was mentioned in owner's manual. For example, when I'm in "B" mode, I don't take my foot off the accelerator when I shift to "D" mode as I enter freeway.
I just found out that brake pads don't come into play until your braking demand exceeds the stopping force of the regen system. This raises the question why bother to use anything by "D" mode?
Interesting. How do you know that it shifts into "N"? If it does, then the purpose behind it is to re-calibrate for regen so a driver doesn't have to take the foot off the accelerator.
