Sounds like a rotor/wheel bearing, not a brake problem. Jack up the wheel, and turn it (Spin it) and see if it feels ruff or sticks as you turn it. Then spin her as some one sits and apply's the brakes, watch the wheel/tire assy. if you see it jump its a bad bearing.

My front right brakes grabs and abs system works

I expect that the caliper is sticking. The rails get corroded or rusty and keep the caliper from returning to the rest position. sometimes the caliper pins are corroded and caust the same situation. Usually this seems to occur on one side and the result is that the pads on that side wear more quickly due to the caliper not retracting, thus leaving the pads touching the rotor and wearing quicker. Suggest caliper removal and scrape and wirebrush the rails, replace the caliper pins. I use a high temperature synthetic brake grease on the rails and the caliper pins for lubrication and protectionl.

How do I replace the front roters

Remove the wheel, Remove the brake calipers, simply grab and pull the rotor off. Install new rotor, then push the piston back into the caliper a little ways, or all the way if installing new pads. This can be done using the old brake pad and a c-clamp to push the piston down. Install new pads and install the caliper. Install the wheel and torque to atleast 80 foot pounds. I torque mine to 100. Torque is important so as not to warp the new rotor.

!996 Chevy Astro AWD pulls to the left when braking , I have replaced Both front calipers, rotors, and pads bled the brake lines and still it will pull to the left MOST OF THE TIME! when i least expect...

Check front end steering linkages for any play, as well as rear brakes for sticking or grabbing as well. Not unusual for a rear brake grabbing, to cause front end to want to wander.

1994 Jeep GC rear drum brakes grab on damp days and low speeds. All hardware has been replaced including new shoes and drums.

The Caliper Adjustment Lever is what adjusts the caliper - ensuring the brakes pads are in proper placement to the rotor for effective braking. The lever must be cycled in order to keep the calipers adjusted properly. The only way the lever is cycled, is by the usage of the e-brake.


Remove the cable from the Caliper Lever. Be careful when handling and removing the spring.

Initial testing: After you have removed the ebrake cable - kneel in front of the rotor and give it a gentle shake (as if you were removing it). Do you notice any PLAY between the pads & rotor?? Make note of this.

Good luck.

Front brakes heat up and sieze both my front brakes feel like there sticking after driving for a while plymouth voyager 1998

Whenever you have new brake pads put on it is best to have the rotors cut. Otherwise they can shudder or grab or any number of things. If the vehicle is pulling to one side or another it could be a frozen caliper. Calipers should always be replaced in pairs. As with all brake work, anything done to one side absolutely needs to be done to the other. Always purchase medium grade brake pads and shoes. Premium pads and shoes are almost always too agressive for any rotor to withstand and will generate excessive heat and premature wear. If your brakes seem like they arent releasing it is most likely the calipers.

Brake pedal is hard, pulls to driver side

May have a leaking right front caliper thats not applying evenly with the left.Look at the front wheels for excess brake dust.The left wheel should have more dust then the right.Also front left rotor may be pitted causing more friction and excess grabbing on the left.Any brake shop will pull the wheel off and inspect the rotor for free.Dont let them try to sell you two rotors or calipers if only one is bad.Replacing both right and left brake pads is OK

Just replaced brake pads on my 99 chevy p.u. seem to be fine when they are cold but feel like they are grabbing when they heat up. What could be the problem?

Hope you are talking about the front brakes,First check to see if the brakes are releasing the brake rotor.If they are not,it is posible the slide on the caliper need cleaning and lubed.Also could be the brake hoses colasping,and not allowing the piston in the brake calipers to release.Did you have the rotors turned?It could have something to do with it.Also what it probley is,that when you pushed the piston back in the caliper,you didn`t remove the master cylinder top off.Bleed the right front caliper,then the left front caliper,and then the master cylinder.This should clear it up.

My 1994 Nissan pickup brakes shudder at low speed

Inspect the brake rotors for grooving and score marks and also look to see if there are any heat cracks, if there is grooving or very little brake pad material remaining replace the brake pads and also two new rotors, it is also possible that it is just a frozen or stuck brake caliper, this would be indicated by an uneven rotor one that has more metal or meat on one side that the other also uneven brake pads indicates an uneven brake caliper application
