    you need to the way you drive the car. I haven't seem brake pad can go down to the metal in 18000 miles. you must be riding on the brake or running at a high spped.

    no. warranty will no cover brake pads. you should have the brake check when it start to make noise. now you have to have the caliper, brake pad, may evn the brake cylinder need to changed.

    $120 turn into $400.

I would take it to the dealer because of unusual brake pad wear.brake pads under normal wear are not covered usually.But if the outside pad wore down to metal and the inside is ok that is a caliper sticking causing a drag of the outer pad to the rotor.

I have an 08 Avalanche. Having a severe grinding noise when coming to a stop in front. My brake pads are fairly new. Just started on Thursday. Sounds horrible now. What could it be.

Hi Benjamin:
I'd be getting the brakes checked (or actually check them myself).
That involves getting the vehicle jacked up, removing the wheels, and visually inspecting the brake pads and discs.
PLEASE! This is a safety issue and you NEED good brakes.

Don't delay/ Get them checked.
Best to you.

Thought back brake pads etc needchanging as could feel grinding and was squealing when brakes applied.tyrns out was worn tyre on rim had that changed but can still hear the noise. Its annoying

Hi, your problem is your brake caliper it could be its not coming on properly to lock on to the disc . When they don't lock on like they should you will get a squealing also on some disc brakes you get anti squeal shims fitted. With some lower quality brake pads you may get squealing. I don't know what kind is fitted on your motor brake pads but its worth another look . The worst outlook is the brake pads are worn right down and you are grinding metal to metal ie disc to pad without anything in between.Should get it looked at.

Hi i recently changed brakes of my toyota raum 2003. The problem is now whenever i apply brakes there is a terrible noise from the brakes. My mechanic has even changed left side caliper but no change the...

On some of the Toyotas, the brake pad info that some auto parts places have on file is incorrect. The pads are just slightly too big and the are touching the un-worn part of the rotor, making a noise that almost mimics the grinding sound like when a pad is completely worn to the metal/rivets. Sometimes it even causes noise when the brakes are not being applied. This is often visible on the rotor- the ridge where the original pad ended, is now a clean bump instead of a ridge that is very rusty.
In some cases, this noise will clear itself as the rotor clears and the pad wears. It's always possible that the pads that were changed were 'cheapies' that were a bit undersized. The only solutions in that case are get the same kind again, or, turn or replace the rotors.

Squeeky brakes and tire maitanence light on. I only have 32000 miles on my 2009 murano.

first check your discs and pads to see if pads are worn down or there are any score marks on the disks, also the metal antivibration shims in front of the brake pads for wear and tear.check tyres for wear wrong tyre preasures/unballanced, and steering problems can cause exesive wear on tyres.

Is ther anything special about bleeding the disk brakes. I got some air the line when changing the brake pads.

Need engine running so ABS works

Need a helper slowly pushing brake pedal,
as you crack open the bleeders,have clear
vinyl tubing on them to a bottle


Do not let master run dry & LEAVE COVER
ON or you will squirt fluid all over everything
& ruin your day

Ratchet up rear parking brake, if you did
rear discs

You did remove ALL Rust from wheel brg hub face,
both sides of rotors,all caliper & pad sliding abutements
& use anti-seize where contact & sliding takes place

All rust etc from back of wheels

Machined rotors,no pads ever go on old worn suface,
the brakes will only make noise & long list of other problems

The anti-seize goes on everything,caliper bolt threads,back
of wheels,both sides of rotor mountings

Synthetic Brake Grease goes on caliper anchor pins or
or bolts & under rubber boots
Not the graphite stuff

While you at it, get the old trans & power steering fluid
They get done Every 30,000 miles & brake fluid every
2 years,spark plugs at 60,000, front (2) O2 Sensors
at 100,000

When i press on brakes i can hear a grinding noise coming from he front end, what could it be?

Brake pads are worn. That noise is the sound of the backing plate for the brake pads hitting the rotors. You will need to replace the pads and probablt the rotors. When the brakes go metal to metal like that it typically destroys the rotor.

Rear brake pads wear out every 30000 miles on 2002 3/4 tod hd , rotors are pitted bad

That's to be expected and is completely normal.

Rear brake shoes as fitted to drum brakes can typically last up to 60k miles with periodic adjustments, but you have rear disc brakes and the shoes will typically last half of that.

Also, modern brake pads no longer contain asbestos and are now made using harder metallic compounds; the direct result is that brake discs (US=rotors) are also considered to be consumable items as they are worn down by the harder pads. It's not unusual to have to replace front discs every other pad change and rear ones with every pad change; in both cases the mileage will typically be around 30k miles on most models.

Both front disc brakes are seizing and overheating

As a rule of thumb to any brake system operating properly the most important is cleanliness of it's hydraulic brake fluid. If your system has moisture in your brake fluid it will cause rust where metal or even rubber are present. Incorrect brake pads would also effect operation such as seizing. Applying a small amount of white grease to the bake pad sliders would help the movement of the pads freely along the sliding perch. A contaminated fluid will cause it to heat up faster and may cause seizure from rust settling at the pistons inside the caliper. If you never service a brake system I would strongly advice you let a certified technician look at your brake problem. Brakes are a safety feature which guessing is not part of a solution. This involves the safety of your lives. Use only premium replacement parts avoiding failure. Your lives are most valuable and when using inferior you also get inferior safety.

Squeak in left front end

i would still bet youre dealing with worn brake pads, theres an off chance it has a bearing issue but brakes are first thought. maybe has caused them to wear down quicker ie. holding caliper, restricted flex hose, or even economy parts from previous repair.
