SOURCE: driver side front brake rubs and overheats. brake

It sounds like the caliper slides themselves are sticking, remove your caliper and check that the caliper slides are lubricated and that the caliper slides easily on them

Rear brakes gone within a year brand new vehicle

There is no normal as I don't know what the car is used for and how heavy the loads are and how hard you brake

Rear brakes dragging

Normally I would say check the brake hose, but that would only be for one wheel.
If the rear brakes are not releasing normally, either something is keeping pressure applied, or the calipers are not sliding back. If both inner and outer pads are wearing down equally on both wheels, I would look for a pressure problem. If only the outboard pads are wearing, the calipers are sticking in place.

Soot / smoke accumulates on front rims

Nothing to do with fuel economy my friend,but that black soot is brake dust from your front pads.THAT's whats doing MOST of your braking.The front.YOUR problem,believe meit is YOU,is the fact that you do not use the emergency brake ever.Each time you put that emergency brake on,it adjusts the rear brake up a bit more,until eventually you have even braking force all around.Use the emergency brake EVERY time you park the car and get out.Eventually you'll notice that the black soot is minimal,but it will always be there a bit.Just keep the rear brakes adjusted up by using the e-brake a lot when stopped.That's also why the front pads ALWAYS wear out and back are still fine.NO emergency brake use.Rigger

I drive a bmw 320i. There's lots of black stuff in the front magwheels, looks like dried up oil and grime. There's also some oil and grime at wheel housing. What seems to be the problem?

Sounds like it is just brake dust build up. The front brakes take most of the brunt when you stop so they wear down faster and emit more brake dust. I would check for any brake leaks though just to be safe.

2007 Chevy Silverado 3500 HD - Rear Brakes are wearing faster than front brakes

Generally speaking, the front brakes do most of the work of stopping--typically between 70-90%. The potential reasons for your truck's rear brakes wearing abnormally quickly include:

--the adjuster(s) on your rear drum brakes were adjusted too tight. (I'm pretty sure you have drum brakes in the rear.)

--You are doing a lot of heavy towing or hauling which is transferring more of the weight to the rear brakes. You'd have to be doing this often, though, and frequently meeting or exceeding the capacity of your vehicle to tow or haul.

--The proportioning valve, the master cylinder or a brake line somewhere is damaged, causing more hydraulic pressure than is correct to be applied to the rear brakes.

-- Your parking brake cable is kinked or damaged, causing the rear brakes to constantly rub. You'd likely smell burning brakes and notice heat from the wheels.

-- Your rear drum brakes are clogged up with brake dust and the springs cannot properly retract the brake shoes, resulting in constant rubbing.

Most likely one of these issues is your problem if you have premature rear brake wear.

I have a 2005 chevy silverado with drum rear brakes and it seems like i'm only useing my front brakes even though i adjust them it seems like they won't stay to wear i feel it in the brake pedal.....also...

The rear brakes normally only account for about 25% of your braking power. Due to engine weight being over the front wheels, and the way that the front settles down when braking, it's proportioned that way to get the best braking performance, especially in a pickup. Unless you change the proportioning valve, the amount of braking that the rear wheels do will not change. As for the brake dust, some types of pads do that more than others, and with disk brakes, this is normal.

Toyota Camry 2005-Brake pads noise problem

The rear brakes should last from 30000 to 60000 miles or 50000 to 100000 kms. So something is wearing out your brakes too fast. Are you doing the work or some shop. I also assume you have discs and not drums since you mention pads and calipers. I am not certain but usually you need a tool to turn the pistion in when putting in new pads. I would make sure the pads are releasing properly by raising rear of car, stepping on brakes a few times (with engine off and try see if wheels are free by spinning by hand, also try to use handbrake a few times and release it and see if wheels spin freely. Maybe rears always applied. Notice burning smell, are discs glazed from heat? Are you using really cheap pads. Also check the proportioning valve which will decrease pressure to rear brakes during hard braking. Do you notice rear wheels squeling during hard braking. Do you have antilock brake system? Also are you using good quality pads and rotors.

Front rims get dirty and back ones stay clean

Hi Joanna, What you are seeing is perfectly normal and occurs on any automobile because the front brakes wear faster than the rear.  Notice that when you step on the brake, the weight of the car shifts forward, putting extra stress on the front breaks.  Next time in a parking lot, notice the same dirty front wheels of other cars.

Brake always on 1998 honda accord

Which brake is on? Emergency brake (it could be over adjusted, or the brake cable at the rear drums is corroding and the cable is not releasing.. Pull the rear wheels off, soak the cable w/ some type of penetrating oil, wd-40, etc--DON'T get any on the drum or brake pads.
If it's a front brake, it could be a bad caliper, or even the brake pad wear indicator( the wear indicator touches the rotor when the brake pads wear down to a certain point. This is a warning to replace the brake pads soon. Even though the brakes aren't on, the wear indicators sound like the brakes are dragging.
Hope I didn't overload you w/ this explanation, just trying to cover all possibilities. Let me know if you have any questions, and what you find out is wrong. Good luck! countrycurt0
