The noise that you hear is the grinding of the pad contacting to the rotors. repairing any disk brakes its not that difficult if one little mechanical incline. You will need standard tools wrench set and ratchets set, plyer, screw driver,1 "C" clamps and hydraulic floor jacks or floor jack stand, extra can of break fluid for bleeding the breaks. for me to give you a complete instruction it would be too much typing explaining with no picture can be a bit confusing if its your fist time doing breaks. you can stop by any auto parts store and pick up Haynes auto repair book, it will give you complete picture and instructions step by step how to do your brakes plus the books will come in handy and great investment for your next repair job, once you done one brakes the rest is a piece of cake. when you get the pad off the car, inspect the rotors make sure the worn pad has not ate through your rotors, other wise you will need to turn the the rotors, its recommend every time you change the pad also turn your rotors, because it will make your pad last a longer, reduce brake noise, vibrations from your front wheels. most auto parts will have the machine to turn the rotors and does not cost much. I'll be here to help you if you need me.

Are your pads warn out ??
Is it metal on metal ?
If you can not determine if you pads are warn out - you should not attempt to replace pads and rotors yourself..

Rate well ;o)

Car noises


Every sound your car makes means something, if you pay attention, your car can usually tell you exactly what needs fixing. Those squeaking brakes mean you need new pads, and if you ignore that sound, eventually you’ll hear scraping metal, which means you need new rotors, and if you ignore that, you’ll eventually hear the sound of your own scream as you lose your brakes completely and fly off a cliff in a spectacular fireball of death. It’s more common than you think. Listen to your car.

It is making a hard scaping, scubing sound when pressing brakes and sometime will traveling


A couple things to look for. Brake pads wear over time and they have a 'squealer' that is designed to make a noise to alert the driver that the brake pads are getting low. This will sometimes remain in slight contact with the rotor while driving as well. Sometimes instead of squealing you will hear a harsher grinding noise.
It is possible that there is some sort of debris lodged in the brake assembly as well contacting the rotor.
When replacing the brakes, be sure to pay close attention the the sliders and that they are cleaned and lubricated properly as they allow the brake pad to move away from the rotor after braking.

I noticed a louder engine sound at approx 45 mph, like a humming or aceleration sound, I had the driver's side wheel bearing replaced to the tune of approx $300 but the sound still remains (the repair guy...


Chevrolet has a common problem with integral hub and wheel bearings wearing due to exessive use or lack of lubrication, the balls or rollers and races become pitted ,scored or just plain damaged which will infact cause a loud humming or growling noise. I have had some humm at about the same speed but usually they will start to make noise at any speed. I would have to hear the noise to be sure cause there are many things to cause a humming noise like odd tire wear, bad idler pully bearings, e.t.c. the tires should be lifted checked for excessive play in the bearing. Take tire off depress brake piston in just enough secure brake rotor use stethoscope spin hub while listening. maybe he replaced wrong side seen that alot, seen tire noise mistaken for bad bearing to if struts or shocks are worn can cause tires to be choppy. I would recommend taken back 300 dollars is alot of money to not fix your problem.
