    Replacing front and rear pads and rotors is going to run at least 800. You didn't specify what kind of brake job. Front pads only should run about 150. If you need me to be more specific I need to know exactly what kind of work you are looking to have done.

What could be the problem with my car when there is a grinding noise as I turn my steering wheel to the left while driving


Brahe shoes wore and metal to metal rubbing, check wheel bearings, I would think you have the right size tires and are not rubbing.

There is a grinding sound when I press the brakes on my Hyundai 2010. What might be the problem?


Hi,
If it is a grinding noise then you have a problem with the brake pad area, it may have a stone caught in this area. Or it may have worn front brake pads.

I just got an estimate have all 4 rotars "machined" and brake pads replaced - parts and labor were quoted at $542.40. Does this seem like a fair price.


These parts are brand new from autozone...Front brake rotor=90.00 for 2...rear rotor=60.00 for 2.....brake pads front=30.00/set...brake pads rear = 25.00/set...total = 205.00 parts
so the labor is 337.40....and the parts I looked up are not machined but NEW!!!...maybe you should do the work yourself....337 seems like alot of money....I do brakes for $50.00 labor per axle...especially if you are replacing all the parts...it's not very hard to accomplish...the front rotors easily pop off when you take off the caliper(which has to come off to do the pads) and then the rears are not really too difficult either...My opinion...either do it yourself or get another estimate...maybe there's an out of work backyard maechanic on your street you can give the job to..or if your in the indiana area...call me ...i'd be happy to do the work for ya 2196972613jeffrey

What should a rear brake and rear rotor replacement job cost for a 05 denali. Job description reads: replace rear disc brakes with new pads. lubricate & inspect caliper and mounting hardware, refill...


hello. Call at least three local repair shops and get quotes. Then check with the better business bureau to be sure that those shops are all respectable. J.

I have a 98 dodge stratus, are the rear breaks rotors or disc?


You do not require a mechanic to do this job. lst remove any wheel front or back. You probably have front disk and drum on the back.
To remove the rotor, you will see two bolts holding brake capalier on the rotor. Remove these and pry the capalier from the rotor. Now you need to remove the pads. Simple to remove, but when replacing you need a 6 inch c clamp to force the pressure mechanism back into the rotor in order to replace the pads. Remove the rotors and have them researfaced any any machine shop. Cost around $10 per rotor. Pick you up some antisizing compound and high temp grease. Follow instructions on the label. Now remove a back wheel, if you do not see a rotor then its a drum. To remove a drum you will need a several tools to replace the drums. Purchase these at Harbor Freight or Sears. Much cheaper at Harbor freight. Now remove the other wheel and repair one wheel at a time, by checking back wsith the wheel that has not been disambled. Before replacing have the drums reserfaced. Now once the job is completed you need to tighten up the wheel by using the special tool which you purchased. Tighten a little at a time AND ONCE THE WHEEL becomes hard to turn back off a turn. Do the same thing to the other wheel. May take you all day to do the job. But it's the way I learned to do a brake job. Hope this is helpful.

Brake pad warning light on golf gti 1.8t 1999 t reg


Brake wear indicator and low brake fluid warning indication are two different circuits.

They are not related.

==
Easy route to check brake pads is the measure the gab between the rotor and the metal portion of the brake pad.

If it's low then replace it.
==

The right way is to pull the tires and measure the thickness of the remaining brake pad.

===

Most shop give free brake inspection with oil change,

Check it out before the pad cuts into the rotor and it will DOUBLE the cost of your brake job.

VW PASSAT BRAKE COST!


ROTORS WILL RUN ABOUT $60-80 PER ROTOR. PREMIUM PADS RUN ABOUT $40-70 PER PAD. PLUS ABOUT 3-4 HOURS OR SHOP TIME AT AN AVERAGE OF $60-70 PER HOUR

I DO SUGGEST CALLING 3-4 OTHER SHOPS NEAR YOUR AREA AND GET AN ESTIMATE FROM THEM AS WELL.

Brakes replacement...


Haynes or Chilton manual will help out. If the inner and outer brake pads are wearing evenly, (one or more isn't worn much more than the others) and you've gone a lot of miles since the last brake job, you can probably get by with new brake pads, and having the brake rotors 'cut' (or also called 'turn' the rotors). This is a process done at a major parts store that basically grinds the front and back of the rotor to remove imperfections, grooves, etc. so the rotor is perfectly smooth. Skipping this can result in pulsating brakes (you feel the pulsating in the brake pedal). The 'shop' that resurfaces the rotor will measure it to make sure it's thick enough to grind down some more. Once it wears down to a certain point, the rotor is thrown out for safety. Depending on the make and model, it is sometimes cheaper to buy a new rotor. I have a GM car, the rotors cost $12 each, Having them 'cut' (the old ones) costs $15 at a local parts store. If brakes are not wearing out at the same time, your brake caliper(s) may need to be replaced. (Brake cylinders, if you have drum brakes). ALWAYS bleed the brake system when you do a brake job, even if you don't open any brake lines. Old fluid absorbs moisture (whenever the cap is opened to check or add fluid) and gets contaminated over time. It'll ruin your calipers and brake cylinders, which in turn will ruin your brake shoes, pads, and rotors, drums. Start at the wheel farthest away from the master cylinder, working to the one closest last. Bleed enough fluid out so that you have replaced all the old. Countrycurt0
