Your power brake booster is probably not working and may need to be replaced.

I was going to replace the rear rotors and pads on my 2001 Jetta on the weekend when they began to grind when I stopped. However friday morning the brakes were soft and slow to brake. When stoping from...


The grinding sound was the metal part of the worn out pads chewing your rotors up. If the sound has stopped, then something is completely gone, probably what was left of the pads. You will most likely need new rotors, Advise you don't drive the car until the brakes are repaired.

Sometimes our 2002 Jetta brakes squeak terribly especially on inclines and upon applying slow pressure. Happens in reverse too. Were told brakes are 75%.


this could be a nummber of things starting with copper grease on the back of the pads to a loose fixing spring on the calliper or if it only happens in the morning and in the cold or at the last few meters of a sopt when you are easyin up on the breaks this could be normal on certain cars due to the metal shavings in the break pads being over sized (cheap break pads) i suggest if you have mechanical knowledge you should remove callipers and copper grease the back of the pads and make sure all the clips and springs are in tack and tight if this still dose not stop it then you should invest in more upmarket break pads
hope this helps

I have a warning light on my dash. It is a circle with 3 dotted lines to the left and to the right of the circle. could you tell me what this means?


Check your brake pads for wear. If worn replace. If not check the wires to the pads. If these wires are broken...the light will illuminate although the brake pads may be fine
Good luck with it

I have a 2002 jetta... the left wheel e brake is locking


Yes you have a bad caliper, if the car is ABS equipped try to take it to a brake specialist, the system is pressure charged.

Front brakes binding and grinding


Sounds like your brake calibers are sticking. Get new ones and new pads. You probably should get new rotors also because with the dragging calibers they most likely got hot and are warped. Search on ebay and www.rockauto.com . I personally use power stop drilled and slotted rotors with mid grade pads. You can probably get a whole kit.
