Check for leaks in the brake lines and calipers or brake cylinders. If leaking have it repaired right away its not safe. Change the brake fluid, take the old fluid out add new fluid or have it professionally done.

Loud noise rear driver side tire


If it is really loud rubbing sound, its either brake pads or could be your rotors. Typically these do not wear out at the same time. Defintely have them checked out, but before going anywhere, make sure to check your brake fluid level as it may be low on fluid that is necessary to apply the brakes and their functionality is dependent upon it.

The most common cause is that the brake pads are worn, causing the audible wear indicator to sound a squealing or scraping sound.

Loud tweeting noise while driving 1996 chevy blazer. No noise when brakes are applied.


Common noise heard when the brake pads are getting close to the end of its life and will need to be replaced. Replace the brake pads and rotors since the rotors are not that expansive, might as well replace them also.

Good luck and stay safe, thank you for using fixya.

Parking brakes dont work


89 regals are notorious for bad brake design. Especially rear disc brakes. The calipers get hung up, and you end up with premature brake pad/rotor wear. The parking brake, when applied, squeezes the caliper against the disc, hence keeping the car still. If the caliper is frozen, when you push the emergency brake, it can't squeeze the caliper anymore than it is.
OR, the parking brake cable needs adjustment. Have a mechanic look over your rear brakes and parts.

Check the metal guard on the back of the rotor to make sure it's not touching the rotor. Are you certain that the noise is from the brakes or the bearing hub, that can be noisy as well?
