Check to make sure the calipers are sliding properly. If it has slide pins, make sure they are not seized. Make sure the pads are not seized in the caliper bracket, and if they are slip on rotors, make sure the hub where the rotor sits is clean or any rust. good luck

Severe wheel wobble when braking on steep decents


It is not wheel wobble but vibration from the front brakes. The front brake rotors have worn unevenly (known as disc thickness variation - DTV) and when this occurs you will get vibration from the front rotors as you apply the brakes and it is especially noticeable when braking on down hill runs. DTV is usually caused by poor alignment of the rotors on the hub. In other words sloppy installation procedures.

You will need to replace both the rotors and brake pads on the front and make sure the business that does the work properly checks the rotor for run out.

1990-1997 Honda Accord front brake replacement issue.


When doing brakes on the front of a 1990-1997 or so honda accord put on new rotors,even if they look good because if you have them turned and trued up anywhere from about a week to a month or two you will have a vibration in the brake pedal and or steering wheel when you hit the brakes,the rotors aren't thick enough to even take a little off or they warp again right away.

The font end is vibrating when I hit the brakes at higher speeds 55-65


hi.
if the vibration is only occuring when you press the brakes, then you almost certainly have a warped disk (rotor, if in US) on one of the front brakes. as it only occurs at relatively high speeds, it may not even be visible to the eye, but would need to be measures accurately using a dial gauge.
warped disks are not usually repaired, just replaced.

My car camry 2003 runs well usually but sometimes the car trembles or gives trembling noise when the brake is applied.


will try to help.your front brakes and rotors may need replacement. when you apply brakes say,at 40 mph do you feel vibration on brake pedal or shaking in steering wheel? the vibration comes from worn or warped front brake rotors. while you have those rotors replaced,go ahead and have new front brakes applied also,or else you'll still have brake problems.always ask to see old parts when you have brakes and rotors unless you have a complety trustable mechanic! the rotors will be round and silver,a very bad brake rotor will have grooves cut in it.always shop for best price at different shops to get a picture of the price for replacement! do not be afraid to ask questions! front brake pads can cost anywhere fron $20.00 to $45.00 rotors can cost $40.00 to $50.00 each there will only be 2 rotors on the front and the brakes are complete for the front,both sides,on the front. as a general rule you'll replace your front brakes twice before you'll need to replace the back brakes because most of you stopping power comes from the front brakes. and as always,if you need further assistance please contact an expert!thank you for choosing fixya.com

07 camry brakes clatters when brakes apply, Can you help with the fix??


If you are saying the brakes chatter or there is a vibration when applying the brakes your rotors are warped. Remove the pads, have the rotors turned at a machine shop, and replace the pads with new ones, even if they look good. Warped rotors are caused by excessive braking at high speed, riding the brake pedal, or not correctly torquing the lug nuts to the correct lb/ft when installing the tire/wheel. Your owner's manual will list the correct torque which will be around 80 lb/ft. Make sure anyone removing a wheel use a torque wrench and torque them correctly.

My 2003 expedition EB vibrates when applying brakes


the front rotors are warped ahd either need to be turned or replaced. use quality parts and motorcraft pads. if you use cheap rotors, they stand the chance of either being warped upon install or warping soon after.
