Hi Aaron, I believe you'll find that a brake shoe retainer or one of the springs has come adrift in the assembly. ou may like to do the job yourself or take it to a shop. If you would like to do the job, let me know and we'll walk through it together. You will probably need replacement parts, so keep that in mind when deciding. Regards John

My brakes don't calibrate on their own, therefore they make a squeaking sound when I break how do I fix it


Check rear brakes for:
1. Brake shoe (Cracked or distorted)
2. Installation bolt (Loose)
3. Rear brake drum (Scored)
4. Brake shoe (Dirty).
5. Brake shoe (Glazed)
6. Tension or return spring (Faulty)
7. Anti-squeal shim (Damaged)
8. Shoe hold down spring (Damaged).
6. Apply a thin layer of multipurpose grease on the area between the back plate and the brake shoes by slightly pulling off the shoes with the help of a screw driver.

My 2000 Dodge Durango is making a clicking sound when going slow and backing up. I can here it when I press the break pedal also and when I push on the car when it's not running any tips?


Check the brakes. If you have drums on the back. this is the most likely spot. The springs break. and when they do this is the noise that it make.

1999 Honda civic making a kind of roaring sound


Just a simple suggestion since I can't hear the noise or actually inspect it. I would recommend having the break pads checked out. If the pad is gone and you are now grinding metal on the disc break you will be hearing a horrific noise. You would hear it more when you are slowing down because you are applying pressure to the breaks which in turn puts pressure on the break pads "if there is any pad left" and would be diggin in even deeper into your rotors. Let me know if this is not the issue and I will try to help more. This would be a very good place to start though.

Brakes are making loud grinding noise when slowing down to stop or on an incline


Ok, it could be a few things, 1. bad break caliper. 2. if you have ceramic breaks, it could be a cracked brake pad, and if they are not ceramic they can still be cracked. 3. if you drive a lot then it could be that you need new breaks again.. 4. also have your back breaks checked along with the front ones..

Noise while applying brakes or turn left / right


Sounds like the break rotors are warped. At this point its best to do a break job, chanses are the calipers are the problem not releasing and creating heat, or break lines are not returning fluid back to resavor witch in turn warp the rotors. Run the whole gamet on the breaks. New rotors, New calipers, New pads, and New rubber break lines to calipers. And you will solve your break problem.
