Take your rear calipers off and lubricate the pistons with bearing grease,move them up and down with your fingers till they move more freely,then remove the dirt from the a.b.s sensor if any with w.d 40. Then check to see if your emergency brake is adjusted to free up wheel movement,but not to loose.

Power steering is winding and drakes are sticking


There are at least 2 items that will cause your problem. The first is when you changed the pads you place the caliper in a different place on the support pins that the caliper slides on to centralise the brakes on the rotor. These mounting pins are prone to rusting up and actually keeps one pad on the rotor as the caliper cannot centralise during brake application. The second is a problem that occurs when the brake fluid is pushed back into the master cylinder reservoir from pushing the piston back into the caliper. Muck in the lines is pushed back into the compensating ports in the Master cylinder causing the brakes to drag and build up pressure from the heat generated by having the brakes on. Try flushing out the brake system using metholated spirits or replace the master cylinder

Squeeky brakes and tire maitanence light on. I only have 32000 miles on my 2009 murano.


first check your discs and pads to see if pads are worn down or there are any score marks on the disks, also the metal antivibration shims in front of the brake pads for wear and tear.check tyres for wear wrong tyre preasures/unballanced, and steering problems can cause exesive wear on tyres.

I just put new brake pads on the rear of my 2004 z71 and the rear passenger side rotor - caliper gets hotter than the driver side rear! any solutions?


You might have a sticking caliper, did you inspect the hardware when you changed the pads? Were the rubber boots intact? Is there any chance you got oil or grease on the pads on one side?

Touran rear brake pads worn 90% fronts still ok' vw dealer says this is not unsual. please can you put my mind at rest.Angelo


Hi mate, not unusual at all, I have just changed the pads and discs on the rear after 36k miles. Fronts still fine. Its something to do with the set up.
If you check the VW forums you will see it is very common.

Rear brake pads wear out every 30000 miles on 2002 3/4 tod hd , rotors are pitted bad


That's to be expected and is completely normal.

Rear brake shoes as fitted to drum brakes can typically last up to 60k miles with periodic adjustments, but you have rear disc brakes and the shoes will typically last half of that.

Also, modern brake pads no longer contain asbestos and are now made using harder metallic compounds; the direct result is that brake discs (US=rotors) are also considered to be consumable items as they are worn down by the harder pads. It's not unusual to have to replace front discs every other pad change and rear ones with every pad change; in both cases the mileage will typically be around 30k miles on most models.

Excessive wear on 1997 s type jags rear brakes


Unfortunatly this is normal, nothing can be done about it. Get pads checked every 15,000 miles to save discs.

Take it back to the dealer who fixed it.
Driving with the rear brakes locked may have warped the rotors. Blue color is from excessive heat. Sounds like a preportioning valve in the brake system is faulty.
The dealer didn't do his job very well. Find another dealer.

Can I replace my Rear Brake Pads? or does a dealer have to?


You can do it yourself there is just a wire that you have to disconect from old pads and re-connect on the new pads.

Shaking while braking at speeds 40 mph +


Anti-lock brakes mean the car shakes when the brake is applied. Try pumping the brakes.
