I have a 2000 chevy malibu. I recently replaced the front brake pads. After this when driving down the road when i hit bumps something in the frontend rattles, i can hear and feel it.. when i hit or ride...


A loose pad could do it.
Check the pad anti-rattle clips again. The pads should be snug in the calipers. Its possible the new pads are not the exact same shape as the old ones.

I had my rear brake pads replaced and now have a rattle from the pads. Goes away if I pull up the handbrake one notch or step o n the brake pedal lightly.


There should be an adjustment to take up the slack in the parking brake cable. Although, If the brakes were properly serviced, there should not be any looseness in the brake pads. There are sprays and stick on pads that go on the back of brake pads to prevent rattles and squeaking. It would necessitate removing the brake caliper and brake pads. Personally, I would take it back to the shop that did the job and make them fix it. New pads should not rattle.

I have a 2002 Passat V6 Wagon and the brakes and rotors were replaced (aftermarket parts) about 3 months ago. The CV boots were replaced 2 weeks ago. When I apply the brakes, about 3/4 of the way down,...


Check and see if the Brake Pads were re-installed with all the hardware, ie, Anti-Rattle Clips, shims etc. if your pads are not secure in the Calipers it will cause the pads to rattle when you are driving in effect causing your brakes to make weird noises, ie, groaning, squealing, rattling.

You are most likely hearing metal on metal on the brake pads. The brakes are not attached to the gear shift in any way. Unless those Koreans have done some really wierd design.

Ticking and rattling sound


sounds like the problem is brake related. That ticking you're hearing is your front brake rotors, clicking against the sides of the brake caliper. As you speed up, the clicking will get faster untill you won't be able to hear it, (it's still there, it's just inaudible at such a rapid revolution) upon deceleration, you will notice it more prominently, clicking in rhythm to the speed of your wheel's revolution.
basically, It indicates your brake pads are worn down. Unfortunately the condition will get worse, louder, and the car will become extraordinarily more dangerous to drive as front braking will be compromised if the vehicle's braking conditions persist.
A qualified mechanic will setup the brakes, rotors, check for warpage, hone the rotors if need be, and be able to install a proper replacement pad.
