SOURCE: Front brakes shudder a fair bit when braking

It seems now a days that everyone loves to turn rotors, the only reason to turn a rotor is if it is running out, what this means is that
it is moving back and forth and not in a straight line. What a brake tec is suppose to do is place a dial caliper on the rotor and spin it and see if it is running out,if it is then it must be turned,as long as the rotor is not under the mfg min width. Any vibration,pulsing,shudder,
would tell me that it needs to be turned, just wanted to explain the reason behind it. Any other questions please post back as everyone is more than happy to help.

SOURCE: unable to remove front brake rotor

Hello, one "trick" is to grab a big hammer and hit the face of the rotor (the part that goes on the hub between the lug studs, NOT the brake pads ride on) several times. A lot of the vehicles I have done this with you really have to whack between the lugs pretty hard and a lot of times. Just make sure you don't hit the lug studs.

SOURCE: how to replace brake pads & rotors

I have a 2006 Sequoia which should have the similar if not the exact same brake system. Changing the pad is very easy and straight forward. No special wrenth was involved. Easier than sedans since no worry to damage the brake fluid pipe.

SOURCE: changed frt and rear brake

The piston must be rotated as it is pushed into the caliper. There is a special tool for this that is sold at just about all parts houses. The tool looks like a small square with various pins for various applications that goes on the end of your 3/8 drive ratchet.

Change front rotors on 97aurora


I hope you mean change front rotors, AND change front disc pads...This front brake set-up is fairly easy for a novice to do also. Why mention rotors? Are you experiencing a vaibration when applying the brake pedal? Yes, this is a sign of warped, worn out rotors...also inspect caliper piston movement, and top off brake reservoir after parts change. The caliper hold down bracket must be removed to change the rotors...2 bolts with good breaker bar, maybe 16 17mm socket and 13mm socket for removal of the caliper (2) bolts...lubricate and clean all parts and slide pins...be sure to thoroughly spray new rotors with brake parts cleaner before installing...this removes the packing oil from the rotors...(will ruin new brake pads and smell) Hope this helps.

Average cost for replacing rear brakes on 2000 Bravada


labor rates and pricing vary greatly town to town state to state. You best option would be to call around your local area to see what the going rate is for a standard rear brake service and a couple of rotors.

Typically the rear caliper slides freeze and the calipers need to be replaced.

You can expect from $200 to $800 dollars depending on what you actually need.

Let me know if you have any questions and I'll be happy to help. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

I have a 1997 oldsmobile bravada and i have a grindig in the front end could someone help me figure out what it is and if it is worth fixing?


Most common cause of grinding is worn brake pads. When they wear, you get a metal to metal situation and usually damage the rotors. As far as if it's worth fixing? That's a personal call but replacing brake pads and rotors is usually a $250-400 job depending on the service station. I'd say if you don't have a lot of money invested in the car, you'd be hard pressed to find a good running car for that price. If you've got other things wrong or potential issues (transmission slipping, overheating, engine running rough) then you may want to look for a new vehicle.

Having trouble bleeding brakes on 1997 olds bravada. bled all four still pedal goes to floor. any suggestions?


Are the rotors worn? Worn rotors and new pads will sometimes cause this. The pad sits across the ridges and no matter how much you bleed the system the pedal just wont stiffen up. (See diagram. A - New pads, B - Rotor, C - Ridge)
If you did not install new pads you may also want to check the master cylinder seals. First bleed the system at the pipes that connect to the master. If the rotors are ok, you've bled the master cylinder and the problem persists then replace the seals or the complete master cylinder.

2000 olds bravada rear brakes are draging. changed brake hose's to calupers and the center hose as well. with new brake and rotors still draging not sure what to do next.


I also have this problem on my 2000 Bravada - replaced all rotors and back calipers, brand new brake pads, new system and my rear caliper STILL chewed up a brand new brake pad in one week down to the metal. Checking for an emergency brake issue at this point - if anyone has any suggestions about how to unhook the E Brake, please share!

Anti lock brake light.


The anti lock lights run off a sensor that is attached to the calipers. By changing the rotors and pads will turn this light off. The sensor is bad or dirty, you need to have it checked by a technician. I hope this helps. don,t forget to rate my answer,thanks

BRAKE PADS


OK Jin, 1st I'd like to know if u know what kind of shape the brake pads are in, are they wearing evenly, (inner and outer, and both wheels) are they grinding metal on metal? If everything is wearing evenly, and u haven't gotten to the point of metal pads (brake lining worn off) grinding on the rotors, u can probably get away w/ just changing the pads, although to do a quality job, you should also remove the brake rotors, have them cut (ground down perfectly smooth and flat) by an auto shop (about $18 each in my area), and bleed the brake system to flush out the old fluid so u have new fluid in the system. You also may need calipers if break pads are not wearing evenly. Let me know condition of brake pads and other above questions, and I can give u more info. I'll be on the road tomorrow for 15+ hours tomorrow, so be patient for a reply! countrycurt0
