SOURCE: 2003 PT Cruiser: Scraping Metal sound from BACK left tire area when braking

My rear brakes were making the same sound for over one year. My rear shoes were hard as a stone or glazed. The pads did not look worn, but they made the medal-on-medal sound when I braked. It was pretty loud.

I replaced the brakes shoes and the problem went away. I replaced the shoes myself in about a hour. They were not hard to figure out.

SOURCE: Left front wheel wobbles when braking

have you checked the wheel bearings? with that wheel raised up off the ground with a jack and on a jack stand, place your hands at the sides of the tire and give it a shake, do the same with your hands at like the 3 o clock and 10 o clock position as to not get your hand hurt if something moves loose, and shake there to, if you feel any play it could be a tie rod, or control arm, spin the tire and listen for any noise, if you hear any you more then likely have a bad bearing....

1996 Tahoe front driver side wheel lock's up have change everything both sides and booster new only left side locks up gets hot


When you say you've changed EVERYTHING, you mean brake pads, calipers, and rotors? Did you include the rubber brake hose to the caliper? Many people overlook this as a possible problem, yet it can cause lockups on occasion because the inner liner can collapse and act like a check valve.

I changed myfront brakes n my 1997chevy tahoe,but nw is making a clickn sound on my left drum


I'm guessing you would have disk brakes on the front of a 97 Tahoe not drum brakes right? It could be as simple as you put the break pad clips in backwards and they are making contact to the rotor plate. Check all the clips and make sure your caliper bolts are very tight.

2002 chevy tahoe no front brakes only rear brakes


IT appears that only half of the master cylinder has bled properly. Try loosing the pipe nuts at the m/cyl and gently pump the pedal until you get fluid out of both lines. Then re-bleed the system starting at the longest line first ending at the shortest. Some master cylinders have a plunger fitted in the middle of the cylinder and this is there to still have brakes if a line fails. It may be necessary to remove it an plug the hole temporarily while you bleed the system as to stops one piston in the cylinder from moving and allowing proper bleeding

Grease leaking from the front passenger


Inner, (Large), wheel bearing has failed. This has caused the grease seal to fail.
Solution is to replace the bearing, and seal.

1.Check the bearing race in the brake rotor. If any pits, scoring, or other evidence of break down is present, the bearing race must be replaced also.

2.Check the outer wheel bearing and bearing race also. The inner bearing receives the most wear, but cleaning, and inspection of both bearings, and races is a standard procedure.

3.Observe the area on the spindle where the grease seal contacts. Insure that the spindle area is of good repair, and no scoring is evident.

The Black residue that you observe is grease mixed with brake dust.

The vehicle must be jacked up in the front, with safety stands placed in the proper area on both sides. Wheel chocks should be used behind the rear tires. The vehicle should be on a flat hard surface.

The wheel/tire is removed, then the brake caliper. The caliper is not removed from the brake hose, but hung from a hanger device, from the frame of the vehicle. (Small rubber tie down strap? Wire clothes hanger?)

Then the dust cap is removed, cotter pin, and spindle nut. Ease the brake rotor out, be ready to catch the outer bearing. Remove the brake rotor.

Rotor laying on two small wood blocks, (2x4's? 4x4?), blocks under rotor face. (Where the brake pads rub against)
Blocks placed so area of grease seal is not resting on them. Rotor is laying on blocks with outside of rotor facing up. (Outside of rotor faces outside of Tahoe)

Take a long punch, and tap out the grease seal from the inside of the rotor. Through the hole where the spindle goes through. Be careful that the punch is resting on the metal ring of the seal, and not the bearing race edge.

1999 Chevy Tahoe- Soft Brake Pedal


Try having the dealer flush and bleed your system. It is very hard to bleed ABS systems yourself and have safe brakes that still work afterward. Bleeding non-ABS brakes yourself is easy not the same for ABS brakes. Valving, sensors and what-not require a tech and the correct equipment in my opinion. You do it wrong and you could ruin your ABS system. Do that and see if they firm up. I replaced my brake shoes/pads at the same time all new everything in back, drums/springs everything and new rotors up front. then I had the chevy dealer flush, refill and bleed system. Stiffer pedal and brakes work better. Keep in mind the brakes on 99 Tahoes are inaedequate, require new rotors often, heat up and fade/glaze pads regularly. I replace my pads long before they wear down because they glaze up and start fading early. I'll rough em up once maybe, next time, new ones. Every two brake jobs, new rotors for me. Just how it is. They will stiffen a bit and work better but they will never be awesome brakes. Just how it is on 99 and earlier Tahoes. Hope it helps. Very important to bleed correctly though. I'll bleed my 83 Toyota 4x4 myself but not the Tahoe.

Tahoe abs and brake light intermittently stay on


When you start to loose your abs sensors(more than one)the brake light will come on.with one sensor going the abs light will come on.I would have your front wheel bearings check seen as how that is were the sensors are.If a weeering sound happens while driving and increases and decreases with with speed I would definatly suspect wheel bearings.

2002 2WD CHEVY TAHOE ABS


Its possible that right wheel speed sensor is dropping out early making the truck think that wheel is locking up. That will activate the ABS and let the brake go on the right wheel which will make the vehicle pull slightly left. The only way to know for sure is to watch the wheel speeds on a scanner and see which one is drpping out first and replacing that speed sensor/bearing assembly.

good Luck
