I have heard a lot of descriptions for brake noises but the term hollow does not bring anything to mind. Can you be more specific about it? Does it happen when you stop? Can you apply just the parking brake and see if it happens?

SOURCE: Been having problem with brakes. I brake pad feels

Bleeding isnt going to help a hard pedal. If the pedal is mushy, and there is no air, the Master cylinder could be bad. If the pedal is HARD, there is no air. Press on the brake pedal several times with the engine off (5-6 times) now hold your foot on the pedal and start the engine, you should feel the pedal slightly give way under your foot. If you dont, and have a HARD pedal, the brake booster could be bad, but have professionals check it out before spending any money.

2002 audi a4 e-brake won't release


It sounds like your rear brake pads are frozen to the rotor, or a small amount of rust is causing them to stick. Put all the tires back on and try to drive a few feet, that usually pops the pads off the rotors.

WHy dose my brake pedal push back and make a grinding noise


Look through the openings in your front wheels and look at the front rotors-are they gouged up? You are probably running metal-to-metal, pads to rotors.
Chances are real good your rotors will have to be replaced along with new pads, but if you catch it early enough you might be able to have them machined, although nowadays that is hardly easy to get done and the savings usually is not as significant as it once was.

How can i change the brake pads on the rear tires??


Hi. Please see procedure below:

Remove the old Brake Pads

1 Park your car on a level surface. If you have a stick shift car make sure the car is in gear. Place blocks in front of the front tires so the car does not move while you are working on it.

2 Open the hood of your car and locate the master cylinder. If necessary, remove brake fluid until the level in the container is less than half full. A turkey baster is a good tool for this. Put the brake fluid in the plastic container and dispose of it the way you dispose of motor oil.

3 Raise the rear end of your car with your car jack. Remove the rear tire or wheel assembly.

4 Remove the parking brake cable from the back of the caliper. Use the pliers to remove the cable clip (restraining clip). This step is done only for Grand Prix RPO Z7Us.

5 Hand-tighten two lug nuts to the studs to hold the disc rotor in place while you work on the caliper. Remove the bolt and washer holding the cable support bracket to the caliper. The cable support has the parking brake cable and brake hose attached to it. This step is not done for Grand Prix RPO Z7Us.

6 Use the socket wrench to remove the caliper guide pin bolts. Slide the caliper off of the disc rotor and hang it in the wheel well with a small bungee cord or wire hanger; Don't let the caliper hang from the brake hose.

7 Remove the brake pads and shims from the caliper. Throw away the shims.

Install the new Brake Pads

1 Use the spanner tool to rotate the piston clockwise all the way into the caliper. Make sure the notches on the piston are at the 6 and 12 o'clock positions. There is a boot (rubber seal) around the piston bore. Lift the seal's inner edge and press out any trapped air. Insert the brake pad clips into the caliper support.

2 Apply a thin coat of lubricant to the parts of the inner pad that come in contact with the caliper piston and mounting areas. As you install the brake pads in the caliper support, make sure the wear sensors are downward and at the leading edge of the rotor when the tire rotates. Push the brake pads into the support, holding the metal shoe edge against the spring end of the pad clips. This slightly bends the spring ends and lets the notches engage with the support. This step does not apply for the Grand Prix RPO Z7U.

3 Swing the caliper back into place over the brake pads and replace the mounting bolt. Reconnect the cable support bracket and tighten the bolt to 32-ft.lb. (43 Nm). Remove the lug nuts holding the rotor in place. For the Grand Prix RPO Z7U, Slide the caliper back into place on the disc rotor. Reconnect the parking brake cable. Insert and tighten the caliper mounting bolts to 44 foot lb. (60 Nm).

4 Replace the tire wheel assembly. Lower the car to the ground.

5 Pump the brake pedal a few times to seat the brake pads. Do this before trying to move your car.

6 Add fluid to the master cylinder container to replace any you removed before you removed the old brake pads.

7 Season the brake pads by making only gentle stops when you are driving for the first week

Thanks!

How to replace rear brake pads on 1996 Chevy Cavalier?


Hi,



1.I believe that you know how to take to tire off:



2.For the front left, turn the wheel all the way to the left ( help you get a better view) place a flat head screw driver between the rotor and the old brake pad, this make take a few mins. but your goal is to push the piston back so that it is flush or as far back as it can go.



3.Next, you are looking for 2 bolts these are hexagonal bolts, unscrew the bolts and remove the caliper from around the rotor. The pad closest to the engine of the car just pops out of the piston ( the hollow circle that you pushed back) the other pad will take a little prying with your flat head screwdriver, but it is relatively easy to take off as well.




4.Next Simply replace the old pads with the new ones. When installing the new pads ensure that the shape of the pad is angled in the same way as the rotor.



5.Finally, place the caliper back on the rotor and tighten the screws back up and replace the tire... be sure to put the cap back on the brake fluid resivour




6.Doing the right side is exactly the same with the exception of turning the wheel the oppisite direction to get the best view.


stay cool

Its a good idea to turn your rotors if your putting on new pads so that you get a good seat.  The steering wheel vibration may be your new pads wearing in and trying to find a good seat.  Give it another 500 miles for break in period and if you still get the problem, then replace the pads with better ones and check to see if your rotors are not warped.  Your pads will never seat correctly if your rotors are warped and make sure you use plenty of that shim goop they give you in the package before putting on the pads.

Shaking while braking


If you put new rotors on and used the old pads that could be your problem. You never put new rotors on, with out new pads even when the old pads look new. Also just because the rotors are new does not mean thery are not warped. I have done a lot of break jobs where i have had to take the rotors back off and had them turned because they were warped right out of the box.

NEVER swap rear tires... the radial tires are not made/designed to be driven one way and then driven the other... they WILL delaminate and come apart.. when you rotate tires, you rotate front and rear on the same side....(old bias-ply tires were rotated around a vehicle)
... if you did not have both sides of the rear brakes fitted with new pads and ..at least had the rotors turned.. do that. look closely at the inside of your wheels and make sure there has been no contact.... once you have made sure both sides are good.. reply back to me on here.. thanks... please mark as helpful.. thanks

Anti-lock brakes mean the car shakes when the brake is applied. Try pumping the brakes.
