How do I stop brakes shuddering

If you are referring to the Brake Pulsating or Steering Wheel shaking when applying the brakes - that is more than likely warped rotors. Which may be that you are due for brake system maintenance/repair.
Usually that happens about when the pads are worn out. It will need the rotors turned or replaced and probably brake pads replaced also. With Disc Brakes front and rear you may be able to view the thickness of the lining on the pads through the openings on the wheels - depending on which wheels you have
NOTE: The cost of new rotors may be very close to the cost of turning your old ones - check this possibility - if so - buy new :)

Get a seond opinion always,make them show you whats wrong.Demand old parts back.Also negotiate.Price.Examole a Brake rotor that a mechanis will charge you $125.00 for actually cost the mechanic approx. no more than $28. or so.A $600. brake job only costs about 75 max in parts.Also you will pay a price that includes pads and resurfacing of the rotor.Average is about $129.95 depending on car.They will tell you you need new rotors and will charge for remove and install which is included and will will not deduct for not having to resurface the old one which is around 15 each rotor.I even seen some mechanics try an charge for a Caliper service to push the Piston back in.This is included because the new pads cant be installed without putting the piston back in its bore.Last thing.make sure that the guide pins are cleaned and new synthetic greased installed.this will keep the calpers from hanging up.Bottom line is know your car, and what things cost.One last thing There is not an honest mechanic out there,no matter how nice they are.

New brake pads and rotors installed at 70,000 miles Now at 86,000 brakes squeak Shop owner says rotors cracked due to heat Replaced rear rotors pads cut down front rotors and new front pads. Any ideas why...

Your rear brakes do very little in stopping your vehicle since the front do almost all the work. For the rear brakes to crack is almost never and it gives me the idea that someone has left the emergency brakes on and drove it around like this until they over heated and cracked. One other thing also to think about. When you overheat a rotor disk, usually the first thing you will feel is a pulsating as you come to a stop. Heat will warp a disk before it cracks. I can't recall ever seeing a cracked rotor before, but I have seen many warped ones. Always be sure the mechanic shows you parts he replaced. Double check his repairs to be sure they did the work. If your not ******* your brakes, then they have done a shabby job. Check the shops review information with the BBB. They maybe have had complaints before and your just one of their many. No mechanic alive should send a customer out with a car that is unsafe to drive. If I were you I would get a second opinion and maybe a third. It seems more and more these days people are getting ripped off by mechanics. As much as it cost for car repairs, mechanics need to be kept in check and if they don't do it right, don't be scared to file a complaint on them. The next customer of theirs will be grateful if they see the report filed about them.

How much should it cost to replace calipers and pads on a 2005 6cyl 2wd 4 Runner?

If they order the parts from rockauto its about $630-700 in parts. $50-60 front and rear brake pads, $ 100 -115 2 better front rotors, $100 for better rear rotors, $90 for each rear caliper, 100-125 per front caliper, $10 for each rubber brake line. (The caliper prices include a core fee that you would get back $30-40 per caliper returning the old caliper, but you pay the shipping fees). The ballpark prices also include the additional shipping costs. Labor should be around 2-2.5hrs. So depending on the shop it would be $50-60/hr so total cost $100-150 for the labor. So total would be somewhere around $730-850. You can just have the one caliper replaced, you do not need to replace them all. I would get new rotors on whichever axle (front or rear) the stuck caliper is on and not get the rotors cut, because the faulty caliper could have warped the rotor. Another possibility is that it could just need a new rubber brake line. When my calipers locked on one of my classic trucks, I just replaced the old rubber line and it was good to go. -Fawkes

;eft frpmt wheel bearing noise - cost to repair or

if you have more than a 3 year warranty it is covered under warranty
if you are going to do the work yourself you need to remove the front road wheel
find the bolts that hold the caliper on and remove them
remove the caliper leaving the flexible brake line connected or you will have to bleed the brakes when you reconnect it
once the caliper is removed you have to remove the bearing cap in the centre of the rotor
remove the retaining split pin from the stub axle and remove the large nut that holds the wheel bearing
remove the bearings and the rotor, clean all grease off the rotor where the bearings are
use a drift and remove the inner bearing shells from the rotor by hitting them from behind with a hammer and the drift
place the new shells in position and gently tap them into position using a brass drift or a press
regrease the rotor hub with new grease, pack the bearing with grease and replace everthing in reverse order of removal
if you buy the new bearings from a bearing supplier you will save quite a few dollars as automotive spare parts dealers are usually a lot more expensive with their prices
Dont forget to put a new seal in the back of the rotor hub before you place the rotor on the stub axle
the seal can be bought from the bearing supplier as well

The brakes pulsate right before i come to a stop. Iam told its the censors in the AFS system and is a costly repair.

check to make sure the front brake rotors are true,if these are out of round this will vause the pedal to pulsate, try this first,ABS system is usually very reliable. get back to me if you need more help. please rate my fix. this is a very common problem, especially if the rear brakes are out of adjustment. it causes the front brakes to work harder causing the front rotors to overheat and warp the rotors. Thanks Ray

Rotor's warped

Rotors are a part of the disc brake braking system, and they warp due to a number of things. And the amount they warp ranges from very little, to quite a bit, so much so that you can feel the warpage in the brake pedal when you stop.

They can cost from $20.00 to $150.00 per rotor, depending on the vehicle. They can be turned at the auto repair shop for about $10.00 per rotor. There is 1 rotor per wheel. Turning them gives you a new rotor for all intents and purposes, but once turned, depending on how much was turned off, they cannot be turned again. So a badly warped rotor might can be turned, or might be too warped to be turned. A slightly warped rotor might can be turned again.

If the rotor surface is smooth, then NO, you do not have to turn them.
If the rotor surface looks like someone has ran a heavy chisel around them, then YES.
I have found that a lot of auto parts and repair shops are not turning rotors or drums anymore because the cost of replacing them with a NEW part, in some circumstances, is not that much more money.
Do Yourself a favor and check out the price or a set of NEW rotors & pads at an auto parts store.

Personally, I rarely go to a dealership to get parts. I have found that most of the parts from a good auto parts store are just as good and sometimes better & cheaper than a dealer...
BUT! that is my opinion.

Checking to see if there is anything tricky about removing the rear rotors on an '05 Tucson and to see if the studs come with a new rotor if it is needed.

Nothing tricky, if you've ever changed a rotor before. One thing the Hyundai has is a single phillips head screw that holds the rotor to the hub. You have to remove that and then with some persuasion the rotor will come off of the hub just like most other rotors. The studs, however, stay with the hub and according to Hyundai you cannot remove the studs from the hub. Therefore, if you need to replace a stud, you will need to eat the cost of a new hub. That, again according to Hyundai, the hub (no labor) will run around $345 as of July 2008. Shop around, I'm sure you can find them cheaper than that. Good luck and be VERY careful about who rotates your tires or has anything to do with taking the lug nuts on or off. It's a very expensive fix if you need to go there.
