Question about Chevrolet Chevy
My '05 malibu has a knock/rattle sound when I brake. I know the front rotors are warped, but this is more than just bad rotors. all of the boots in the front end are not cracked or broken and the bearings seem fine.
Warpped rotors can cause alot of funky noises/ vibrations, while driving...make it feel like the car is comming apart, esp while braking....Sounds like it might have damaged the piston in a caliper if you hear a rattle sound...Def take it to mech..Brakes are no joke to wait and see what happens.....If you can, take off wwheellss and remove the caliper, inspect it well...teake the rotors and get new ones, put them on after you clean them( yer new ones) bleed the system if it needs and see if it does it still, if so then its either a caliper/master cylinder [problem...Or you have front suspension damage...let hope for now its just t he rotor!!!! Good luck friend!
