Question about 2004 Audi A4

04 A4T brake problems

I have 45k on the vehicle and do not drive hard, one rotar on the front is cracked and all 4 pads cracked as well only after 13k miles. this is the second time and it is CPO for 100k and service agreement as well. the pads and rotars on the back look untouched. I put about 50miles a week on it. Any ideas what is happening, the dealer say it is due to heat. I thing 13K there must be another problem. Any help would be great.

    Not at all but i have had it in the shop 15 times in the year since i had it all from brake noises and 13k ago the same problem, and now again. shouldn't that be covered under waranty? Did you mean bleeding?

  • kco50 Dec 04, 2008

    I will be looking at it again tomorrow and i should know more. i kept saying the same thing but they said they checked that. i highly doubt they did. I will see upon another inspection tomorrow as soon as i get a chance. Sounds like i might have to do a bit of convincing to the dealership. Thanks for the help.

The brake calipers don't seem to be relesing all the way you might have to replace them or try to get a brake bleeping service and see if that helps them out. Does it pull when you hit the brakes?

    Yes it should be covered under waranty. Yes i meant bleeding. But to me it sounds like a caliper problem i have seen other cars/trucks do the same thing.

2005 sequoia limited and just new rotors and pads on front and refaced rotars and break pads in the back. Brakes make noise when shifting from park to drive or reverse and vice versa. Any idea the cause?


I have heard that Toyota's are sensitive to off brand brakes. IF you did not use Toyota brake pads, you might need to wait and see if it goes away with time. If not use Toyota pads.

1993 buick lesabre changed the front rotars and pads and now the cars brake pedal is so hard to push down to get car to stop. Mechanic has checked both the front and back brakes and they are fine. T


I would jack up a front wheel and see if pushing on the pedal with the engine running will stop the wheel from turning.
You need to know if the pressure is reaching the wheels, or if the pads and rotors are too slick to stop the car.
Usually if the pedal is hard, the booster is not working or the brakes are glazed.
Can you stop the car with the parking brake ? That only uses the rear brakes.
You may need a second opinion from a different shop.

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

How do I get the rear brake pad assembly back on the rotar? The new pads make the space between them too narrow for the assembly to fit over the rotar


You have to compress the caliper. If your design uses the brake pads as parking break, you need to rotate the piston while compressing it. there are tools that assist with this, but I use a C clamp and the old brake pad.

I have a 1999 lincoln continental and the front passenger side brake locks when driven for a while.


I just got a 1999 lincoln myself. And the front brakes locked up on it. Try to take off and it spit and sputter's. And floats around when try to stop. I replaced both brake calipers, pads, and one of the rotars. It had grooves wore in it. And changed the rubber hose going to the caliper. That is what the problem actually was. I noticed that the other side had already been changed beforre. But I wasn't sure. The caliper was rusted up where it got hot from rubbing. And it is posible for them to stick. Autozone $38 ea for calipers rebuilt. 40 for the pads. 20 for the rotar. And 35 for the hose. Now it drives like a dream.

Your car has front disc brakes, the disc's are running out of true, as u apply the brake this causes the steering wheel to shake, the higher the speed the more u feel this, the solution is to have the front brake disc's machined true again on a brake lathe or if they are to thin replace them.

The hard part is pressing the caliper piston abck into the caliper so you can get the new, thicker pads over the rotor. A large C Clamp works best.
