Left front wheel wobbles when braking

Right wheel wobbles when braking. I have changed caliper, rotor, brakes pads and even drive shaft.Have not noticed any loose in bearing,ball joints or tie-rod end. Have not whet changed left front brake or rear drum brakes. The problem existed before and is still there. I have automatic transmission. I've been dealing with this growing problem since last year and started by changing drive shaft with torn boot thinking that was the problem.Thank for your help !Bob

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....

ABS & brake Wobble in Cherokee front end


I am not familiar with your ABS as to how it is fed to the brakes but I am pretty sure I know what you are talking about. It sounds like your ABS is activating which is in my case the wheel hub. You will notice a wire harness coming down to your wheels and where that attaches is usually where the problem is. (problem being if I am correct when you brake you are getting a rapid pulsing rather than a smooth brake)

Overheating brakes


I think the problem is the brake pad or caliper, brake pad are too thick or the caliper are not good casted.
First try to confirm if you get a right brake caliper ,then confirm the brake disc ,brake pad, if they all ok, tear down the bracket of caliper, put into brake pad, then put into brake rotor.

I'm driving a 2000 Chrysler 300M. Had front brake pads & rotors changed 2 weeks ago. Front end has been noisy since & I suspect sticking calipers , as i was informed they did not get clean


The front calipers are not the problem...did a shop replace the pads and rotors? Or did a friend replace these parts. The Chrysler front pads and rotors are an excellent design...easy to service and replace parts...only 2 bolts hold on each caliper, and the rotor is held in place with the caliper, and wheel. My first thought was a front wheel bearing is grinding, but you should have noticed this before the brake parts change. The pads could be installed backwards also...my second thought was you may have a loose wheel or two...retighten all 5 lug nuts by using the "star" tightening method, you may be surprised that the loose lug nuts are the only problem. Hope this helps.

Rotors keep warping


Could be a number of problems. Here are a few.

Defective Brake Pads
  • Brake pads that are defective and/or incorrectly installed can, over time, cause brake rotors to warp and become damaged. Brake pads are responsible for squeezing against the spinning brake rotor, an action that causes a vehicle to slow down or stop. If the brake pads are bent, misshapen in any way, or aligned and/or installed abnormally, they can exert abnormal pressure on the brake rotors, a condition that can cause brake rotor warpage over time.

  • Abnormal Brake Caliper Action
  • An abnormal or malfunctioning brake caliper can result in brake rotor warpage if the degree of brake caliper dysfunction is severe enough. A brake caliper houses a set of vehicle brake pads and provides the squeezing force necessary to squeeze the brake pads against the spinning brake rotor. If a brake caliper applies too much pressure to the brake pads, or if it applies pressure inconsistently, it can cause a brake rotor to warp over time. Adequate brake caliper action is necessary for optimizing brake pad and brake rotor function.

  • Excessive Heat
  • A vehicle's braking system generates a tremendous amount of friction-related heat, heat that normally gets radiated away from the brake pads and brake rotor mechanisms. However, in cases where excessive heat is generated within a braking system and not dispersed adequately, serious brake malfunctions can occur, which can include brake rotor warpage. A stuck brake caliper, old, worn-down brake pads, or a defective brake rotor can cause excessive heat to develop in or around a brake rotor, which can cause brake rotor damage and warpage.

  • Damanged Wheel Hub Spindle
  • A brake rotor assembly is supported by and rides on a long, slender metal tube called a hub, or wheel hub assembly. The hub is what allows for the smooth, even circular motion of the spinning brake rotor. Designed with a smooth, low-friction exterior, the wheel hub assembly is critical to the proper spinning motion of the brake rotor. Any abnormalities or defects with the wheel hub assembly, including hub warpage, cracking or misalignment, can cause abnormal brake rotor rotation, which in turn can cause brake rotor warpage over time. Normally, a damaged wheel hub assembly is noticed and remedied prior to extensive brake rotor damage, as a severely damaged wheel hub assembly will cause a vehicle tire to wobble and shake.

    How can I change the rotors and brakes on a 2006 Cadillac?


    Front brake
    Step 1: Identify Front Disc Brake Components
    brake_pads_rotor.jpg
    Front Wheel Drive Brake Assembly
    Most front disc brake components include: brake rotor, brake pads, brake caliper, caliper mount and brake flex hose. Brake service usual occurs between 20,000 and 40,000 miles depending on driver habits, road conditions and brake pad/ rotor materials used.
    Step 2: Remove Brake Caliper to Replace Pads
    brake_pad_set.jpg
    Removing Brake Caliper Mounting Bolts
    Locate primary caliper mounting bolts; apply wrench pressure counter-clockwise (When looking at the head of the bolt) to remove the bolts, upper and lower. Make sure the bolt threads are in good shape and replace if necessary.
    Step 3: Remove Front Brake Caliper
    remove_brake_caliper.jpg
    Remove Front Brake Caliper
    After removing the primary caliper mounting bolts lift the brake caliper off of the rotor and then tie or secure to the side, being careful not to bend or kink the brake caliper flex hose. Thoroughly inspect brake caliper and brake hoses for leakage, cracks or chaffing and replace as needed. Next remove the brake pads (If not mounted in the caliper) and secondary caliper mounting bolts. Notice how great protective gloves work, most technicians use them on the job today.
    Step 4: Remove Brake Pads
    remove_brake_pads.jpg
    Remove Front Brake Pads
    Once the brake pads have been removed, make sure if there is anti rattle hardware to transfer to the new brake pads. Some brake pad manufacturers will include the proper lube (Caliper slides) and anti-rattle hardware to ensure proper performance of their product.
    Step 5: Remove Caliper Mount
    remove_brake_pads_holder.jpg
    Remove Caliper Mount Bracket
    Finish removing secondary caliper mount bolts and remove caliper mount. Note: clean and lube caliper slides and pad friction surfaces of all foreign material or build-up.
    Step 6: Remove Brake Rotor
    brake_rotor.jpg
    Remove Brake Rotor
    With the caliper mount out of the way you can now remove the brake rotor. Sometimes it can get stuck so you may need to tap it with a hammer or use penetrating oil to free it up. Some manufacturers use small screws to hold the rotor on as well. Clean and inspect wheel studs, replace if any are damaged. Also clean bearing hub rotor mount surface to ensure the proper mounting of the new brake rotor. Inspect the ABS sensor wheel for cracks or damage and replace as needed.
    Step 7: Depressing the Brake Caliper
    compress_caliper.jpg
    Resetting Brake Caliper
    To install the new brake pads you must retract the brake caliper piston. Remove the master cylinder lid or open the brake caliper bleeder screw to allow excess brake fluid to be released if necessary. Install C clamp tool and gently tighten clamp until caliper piston is fully depressed. Note: use old brake pad to protect the caliper piston. Close the bleeders once the piston is retracted completely
    Step 8: Installing New Brake Rotor
    new_brake_rotor.jpg
    Install Brake Rotor
    Install new brake rotor, the new rotor is manufactured with a protective film over the rotor to keep it from rusting, remove protective film with brake cleaner before installing; also after the brake job is complete you may experience a small amount of smoke from the rotor when first used. This is normal and will go away after the first couple of uses.
    Step 9: Installing New Front Brake Pads
    new_brake_pads.jpg
    Installing New Brake Pads
    Reinstall the front brake caliper mount, and then install front brake pads. Make sure the pads are seated properly in the caliper mount; it must be a close fit to work properly..
    Step 10: Reinstall Front Brake Caliper
    front_brake_rotor_pads.jpg
    Re-Install front Bake Caliper
    Reinstall front brake caliper and reinstall caliper-mounting bolts, recheck all mounts and mounting bolts. Check the caliper slides to be sure there is no bind and that the caliper moves freely back and forth on the caliper slides. Bleed brake system per manufacturer's specifications to relieve any air trapped in the system. Before driving the vehicle, push the brake pedal down and let it up slowly, repeat until normal brake pedal operation resumes, this operation is forcing the brake pads to travel to the brake rotors.

    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

    How to change brake pads on 1996 roadmaster


    Disc brakes I assume on the front of the car? If so.

    1. take off front wheel.
    2. remove 2 bolts that hold the brake caliper on the rotor.
    3. slide the caliper off the rotor and remove old brake pads.
    4. take a C-clamp and put it so you can press the piston back in on the caliper so it is almost all the way in. (Caliper = The round shaft that is on the inside of the rotor that pushes out the pads causing the resistance).
    5. Check the condition of the rotor. If it is smooth and doesn't have too much of a lip on the outside of the rotor(both inside and outside of rotor), then put the pads on the caliper and put it back together.
    6. If rotor is rough or has grooves in it then take the two bolts out so you can remove the caliper bracket from the wheel assembly. Tap on the rotors till they loosen up an replace them.

    Good Luck...you can do it
