SOURCE: rear brakes lock up

ABS hydraulics on that unit are a known problem.

The dealer has a set of gauges to install and verify.

Shop around for prices on one, including salvage, then take it to the dealer to verify the concern before you shell out a couple hundred bucks.

Its not a tough replacement if you are handy with a wrench.

If not, leave that one to the pros.

SOURCE: CLUNKING SOUND IN REAR UPON APPLYING BRAKES 2000 CIRRUS CAR

I would check the brake caliper hinge pins. If the pins are worn, every time you apply the brakes the caliper moves forward against the pins. If the caliper pins and or caliper are worn they will clunk when the brakes are applied.
Check to see if the caliper shifts forward and back.
Let me know.
Regards,

what you need to do is change the rubber brake line that goes from the caliper to the metal line. the problem is that the rubber line has collapsed.change that and bleed the brakes and you should be good to go

SOURCE: Install new brake pads and rotors all 4 wheels.

Are you losing any Brake Fluid? Is it visible anywhere at the four wheels? Is it visible anywhere else?
The Master Cylinder may be defective. When you bled the Brakes did you maintain proper Brake Fluid Level in the Master Cylinder? If you didn't: and air entered into the Master Cylinder there maybe air within in the system in the Master Cylinder. You can bleed the Master Cylinder by removing the brake lines, adding more fluid, pumping the brakes, bleeding the air out of the system.
Are you losing Brake Fluid and can't find a noticeable leak? Then there is a good posibility that the rear seal in the Master Cylinder is leaking and the Fluid is going into the Brake Booster - which is the large wheel shaped drum located on the fire wall. In this case both the Brake Booster and the Master Cylinder will have to be removed and replaced. The Booster contains seals that Brake Fluid is very caustic to and will ruin these seals- causing future failures.
If no Brake Fluid is lost, no leak found: Check the Brake Booster Vacuum Advance. This should be connected to the outside of the Booster, attached to a hose, with the hose going to the engine. Check to see if this is working properly. Replace if needed.

Brakes make a whistle noise when applied and sometimes a low grown or grinding when coming to a slow stop or start.


A grinding or rumbling noise can also be symptoms of a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint in a driveshaft. A worn wheel bearing can also cause a 'whistling' sound (as can a worn CV joint).

A grinding noise with brakes is either worn pads causing metal to metal contact on the brake disk/rotor, or the brake backing plate catching on a spinning rotor ... or a loose/missing anti squeal brake shim (they stop the pads from rattling and vibrating).

However, as you say a mechanic has looked at the brakes and can't find anything wrong .. I think I would begin to suspect a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint on the driveshaft (front wheel drive cars).

Noise on front driver side and i replaces rotors and brakes


may be the backing plate is hitting. or it may be the wheel bearing is bad. check by making turns and see if the noise goes away or starts grinding like a washing machine. IF grinding is worse replace wheel bearring.

Front end of 2001 chrysler sebring is grinding when the car gets to 10 mph. It gets louder the faster it goes. When I turn the car to the right it gets quite.


this could be a brake issue, BUT it sounds more like a wheel bearing that is starting to break apart. I would stop by your local brake shop and get a 'free' brake inspection. they will tell you if it is the brakes or if it a bearing that needs to be replaced. if it is a bearing that is going out make sure you find a mechanic that specializes in Chrysler repair,, this will keep the repair costs down and the turn around time will be around 6 to 10 hours. don't go to the dealer enless the vehicle is still under warranty.
if it turns out that it is a brake disk/pad issue -- the brake shop that you took the car to will be able to do a full disk turn and brake pad replacement in under 1 hour and will only cost around 75 to 100 dollars.

Grinding noise in driver side front wheel.


You either have a bad wheel bearing, or a bad brake pad. Does it do this only when you apply the brakes, or making turns, or is it continues. If its only while using the brakes, most likely the brake pads are worn. If it only does this while making turns, may be wheel bearing. Remove the front driver wheel and inspect the brake pad liners. check the thickness of the pads, make sure the pads are not metal to metal. to check the wheel bearing, while wheel is still on the car, put the front of car on jack stands, while wheel is off the ground spin the wheel and listen for any noise that sounds like the sound it was making while driving. If it makes this noise, you then can take a steel tube about 3 to 5 feet long, put it under the wheel and lift up and down on the wheel, and notice if it has any movement or play as you lift it up and down, if it moves, then likely its the wheel bearing.

Grinding noise passenger side front


Check wheel bearing.
Check backing brake plate , sometimes it's bended and touching brake rotor.
If wheel bearing is bad , you may have same effect with backing plate , brake rotor touch backing plate.

I replaced brake rotors and pads on front end.Now the driver side brakes grinds and when i stop the car,i noticed this side is smoking. I'm pretty sure i assembled it correctly.


You obviously need to take it back apart and see what the issue is. Did you install the pad backwards?? You could have cocked the piston when you compressed it back in .

Noise from offside rear wheel when turning, it sounds like a bearing but we don't think it is that, its not really a 'knocking' more of a scraping, grinding sound. Its not continious, seems to occur mainly...


Have the front brakes checked alot of times the brake pads wear down to the point that the wear warning indicator starts to rub on the rotor or disc and makes a scraping sound when turning, your front brake pads are due to be replaced, I am 80% sure.

04 cavalier makes grinding noise in front end turn the wheel to the right grinding gets worse turn the wheel to the left grinding stops. it sounds worse at 40mph and above. what would cause this?


3 things to check:
Worn disc brake pads, grinding against the rotor.
Wheel bearing
cv joint.
You posted grinding gets worse turning to the right, the problem is the driver side wheel, but it would be best to have both wheeles checked.
