Question about 2003 Acura MDX

2003 MDX - Rear brakes squeel when I am reversing only.

When I am reversing and brake, the rear brakes squeel. I had new brake pads put on about 5,000 miles ago so I don't think that is the issue.

Most likely you need new brake pads.if there are rear drum brakes it is possible that there is a build up of brake dust in the drums.you will have to inspect front and back brakes.

Clicking noise when applying the brakes on a 2002 cadillac seville


If there isn't a high pitch squeel when applying breaks, then your pads/shoes are worn down to the rivits. If in the rear, could be defective hardware in the brake drum/brake assembly.

After driving my 2008 t&c for about 10 minutes (city) squealing from right rear occurs. Sounds like metal on metal. Depressing brakes makes sound go away. Pads appear to be fine.


because your rear pads are locked on when you use the parking brake,the squeel is dust on the rotors/pads,so when you press pedal,dust goes,
You did put anti squeel grease on the back of the pads when you replaced them, didnt you???SO simple.

Rear brakes are making an alto sound when pressed lightly and espically in reverse. Is this the rotors?


the braking pads are worn, the noise is coming from the small tip that the brake manufacturer assemble on the pads to let you know when the pads need replacing

Does the 2003 gmc yukon have rear rotors? and do the brakes need to be changed if the rotors need to be machined?


Yes, it has rear Disc Brakes, I would suggest to change the rear pads since they have to remove the rear Brake Calipers to remove the rotors and it wouldn't take much more time or labor to replace the pads at that point. That way when your rear rotors are re-installed and your new brake pads are installed your rear brakes should give you longer service life and better stopping power.

Right rear pad and worse


The problem described here indicates that you may have the AWD (full time 4WD) drivetrain of the 2003 Element.

It is normal to have 1 side of the vehicle to have increased wear due to the transmission differential, that allows your vehicle's wheels to move at different speeds from the others (turning, inclines, etc.)

Your brake pads really need constant inspection and possible replacement (approx 5,000 miles) with everyday driving, and is really a consumable item like your fuel.

You will find that it is much cheaper to replace the brake pad/lining of your disc brakes than grinding down the supposedly shiny discs that slow down your vehicle.

RE: salt/snow, you can improve your discs' longevity by rinsing them out with warm water after being driven in extreme conditions.

Hope this helps.

Is there a rear brake pad warning light on Audi 2003 A4


Ther is usually no warning light, but if you hear squeeling they might need to be changed. Another way to check them is if when you step on the brakes to slow down you may feel a little shimmy in the front wheels which mean that the front brakes are doing most of the slowing down and that the rear brakes are worn.
