it may be time for new brake pads, and you usually want to replace your rotors when you change pads, you can get away with not doing and instead take it to a shop and get them "turned"

if you want to see for yourself if it's time for new brake pads just remove one of your wheels and look at your brake pads (they are the what actually make contact with your rotor) and if the pad itself is less than the width of about 2 or three credit cards, then it's time for new pads.

hope that was helpful....good luck!

SOURCE: how do I reset my

you can not reset it. all you have to do is go to the dealer and get a new sensor. once the sensor touches the disk it opens up the circuit, thus you have your brake pad warnning.

SOURCE: 2004 Mini CooperS- brake service light stays on

Did they replace the brake pad wear sensor? If so, try leaving the key in the on postion for 30-45 seconds (dont start the car) This is how we reset the lights on BMW's and the Mini's use a similar system for service lights

Premature rear brakerotor failure


I have never had that issue in 50 years of doing brake work

You were given the dealership Dog & Pony Show as always

When you get a new vehicle the brakes are assembled dry at
the factory & rust on the train or car carrier

Like other vehicle parts they have to come apart,rust removed
& lube applied to all sliding surfaces & done at least once a year
on all vehicles

The same thing for spark plugs & trans fluid

30 days after you get it, you pull the plugs to gap them
& put anti-seize on them & change trans fluid to remove
the normal wear of bushings & debris you get when new

New brakes needed on 2005 TSX with 23K miles


Thats low mileage for an 05...congrats. It is also way way low to be needing rear brakes!!!, The front brakes ALWAYS need replacement before the rear, unless you have a malfunction...or have been driving with the emergency brake on, (the emergency brake just works on the rear). Also, unless the brakes have been metal on metal, no way you should need new rear rotors with that mileage...I realize you trust your dealer, but, I'd get a 2nd opinion. As for the driving, sure, driving habits have a bearing on brake wear, and yes, you have probably done alot of stop and start, but probably at low speeds also. At any rate, you should not be replacing rear pads and certainly not rotors with 23K...unless there is another problem..Hope this helps!

Take it back to the dealer who fixed it.
Driving with the rear brakes locked may have warped the rotors. Blue color is from excessive heat. Sounds like a preportioning valve in the brake system is faulty.
The dealer didn't do his job very well. Find another dealer.

Adjusting Tacoma Rear Brakes?


yes they should be self adjusting but none of these ever work properly.The garage should have removed rear drums and cleaned them out and then rubbed down the rust lip that forms on the outside of the inside of the drum.Then cylinders checked out like you have done then shoes adjusted up till just catching on drum,this will bring the handbrake up as well.Too many know it all know nothing cowboys in this game and no govening body in any country to legislate,be different if it was solicitors .

Rear brakes replacement


The Rotors would have to be Grooved Beyond Resurfacing to Change them. Check and see if they have very deep Grooves. If Not you just need pads. Some Places will do this for 75.00 and others will Charge upwards of 200 to 400 Bucks for Service. Just do some Calling and Check out Prices first.

I just got my front brakes replaced on my 2000 Toyota Camry. It has less than 80,000 miles on it. The mechanic said that there had been only 1/32nd" left on the front, but the back brakes were fine....


everything the mechanic suggested is right on target. Over time you do not realize that the ride of your car has deteriorated until you put on the new struts and the alignment is a must after the replacement of those struts. As far as the back brakes being good versus the front being worn out, the front brakes take a lot more abuse than the rears do to eight transfer upon braking.

Repair or item list for 50k mile service for my 06 530i


Probably the pollen filters as well, brake fluid and anti freeze. If this is your last free service with the dealer it pays to ask them if you can check the service schedule list for your car.

What does this warning light mean?


you're do for brake service. either the front or rear brake pads have worn down to
minimum. if when you apply the brakes you don't feel pulsation, just replace the brake pads and sensors and that will take care of the light.
