If you have 4 wheel disc brakes your Emergency brakes could be rubbing. Or when you use your brakes, the brakepads could be bad.
The Emergency brakes require removing the rear rotors to inspect the E brakes. The wheel bearings usually make a noise whether you use the brakes or not. If you want to replace the rear brakes you need to remove the wheel, then the Caliper, and then the Rotor.
Since there are 2 sets of brakes in the rear, it is much easier to do the front brakes having 1 set. You can price out the job at Brake shops beforehand.
A lot of what the shops say is like Jibberish, if this is bad, if that is bad, but it is accurate. You need new Brake hardware, and shoes and pads. Calipers can be reused if they can be bled. Brake hoses and lines are Iffy, your vehicle is 10 years old, depends on Rust condition. E brake cables, may be good or bad, depends if they work.
I would not worry about the bearing until all the brake parts are accounted for.
The brake pad is worn down to the rivet that holds the pad to the base.
The metal rivets are in contact with the metal brake rotor.
Replace both front brake pads and at least one rotor.
You should be able to see both front rotors w/o removing the wheels.
The rotor with rings like Saturn (the planet) is the one to replace.
Replace soon before the other rotor meets the same fate.
Warpage can be caused by many reasons, such as getting real hot ( normal ), and you driving though a nice cold puddle. INSTANT warp. Also tightening wheel lug nuts too tight can warp rotors. Should be tighten with a torque wrench to factory spec.
hi you will have to remove the wheel,grease cap from the hub remove the brake caliper and move aside (do not seporate rubber line). (discard caliper bolts can not be reused) remove rotor,wheel hub retainer nut (and discard nut can not be reused) in order to remove the hub
hub and new nut and tighten new nut to 189-254 ft.lbs
rotor new grease cap seal
brake caliper with 2 new bolts tighten to125-170 ft.lbs
wheel tighten to85-104 ft.lbs
pump the brake pedal befor moving car
