Have the brakes checked out. It could be way past time for brake replacement.

[Disc brakes have a piece of metal attached to the brake pad, that when the lining of the brake pad is worn down to the replacement level, the metal touches the brake rotor. {Actually the metal is part of the Brake Pad Inner Shim, for a 2006 Kia Sedona}

There is a metal to metal screeching sound. A sign that the brake pads need to be changed Pronto!

(If it isn't taken care of as soon as possible, that piece of metal will score {Cut} the brake rotor. This could lead to where the rotor cannot be safely turned on a brake lathe, and the rotor will have to be replaced.

Rotors cost a Lot more, $$$$$ than simple brake pad replacement!)

If your Sedona has drum brakes in the rear, the lining of the brake shoe has worn down to the metal backing, and now there is metal to metal contacting. (Instead of brake shoe lining to metal drum surface)

Again, a screeching sound may be produced. This situation warrants immediate attention! The brake drum can also be turned by a brake lathe, but it is just like a brake rotor for a minimum thickness that it can be lathed to.
(Cut to)

Brake rotors resemble a flat disc, and there is a minimum thickness that they can safely be cut, (Lathed), down to.
Brake Drums resemble a round cake pan, and the outside thickness can only be cut, (Lathed) out so far. (Minimum thickness for safety.
Either Drum Brakes or Disc Brakes were offered on the 2006 Kia Sedona.

Do you have rear disk breaks? could just be your squeeler telling you its time for new pads. is so dont get hard pads put in. sure they tell you they last longer, and they do. but your rotors will go quicker, and they cost more.

Intermittant screeching noise by rear passenger side


Your description makes me worry. If you have a strange, unknown screeching noise coming from the right rear wheel and now there is a burning smell. Please stop using it and have it looked at as soon as possible. There are a few things that could be the cause of these symptoms. Wheel bearing failure, seized brake caliper or frozen caliper sliders, damaged brake line, seized E-brake cable, or improperly installed brake-pads. In any case, if you continue to drive this car, with these symptoms. You may cause a break-down (requiring a tow), or cause a fire. Let me know if I can answer any other questions or how the repair goes, good luck.

Whining noise in car stops when breaking or turning


This can be from a number of problems. You have wear tabs, sometimes called "screech tabs" and they are suppose to make noise when the brake pads are thin. This will happen when the caliper shifts in a turn or the brakes are applied.

Next, the wheel bearings will definitely whine when they are dry or worn out. The application of the brakes makes the bearing shift slightly and this can temporarily stop the noise. The weight shift can be enough to relieve the worn part in a turn by changing the angle of the wheel in a turn. But a brake caliper can also rock in its mounts during a turn and pull away from where it was rubbing.

This repair requires hands-on inspection of the parts to sort the good from the bad. All of these parts are in the same area.

I hope my solution helps you.

I have a squealing/screeching noise at my right front wheel area. Cop stopped my daughter with a warning to get it fixed. It's a 2001 S10. Could this be the brakes? It stops when the brakes are...


Brake pads may be worn to the point where the warning indicators are touching down onto the rotor. It's usually a metal strip that rubs on the rotor when the pad wears to the limits, causing a screeching noise as a warning. It'd be easy enough to check by just removing the wheel and inspecting the pads to see. Take it to a mechanic if you're unable to check it yourself.

Screeching sounds possibly to do with breaks?


garages, but not all of them will put on the cheapest pads that they can find and charge a premium price. I did this once! because the boss told me too. the car came back for rattling and squealing. I replaced the pads with the premium ones and they never returned with this problem. from then on I only used premium pads.

2002 Silverado right rear wheel locking up.


You will need to have the parking brake adjusted to the minimum clearance possible and double check the shoes & drum while off.

It sounds as though the shoes are loose, they move forward, grab & unil you center the brakes by applying them and then they release until put into a bind again.

These usually don't get adjusted or even looked at since they are hidden inside the brake rotor hub on the rear wheels.

good luck.

2002 tahoe breaks lock up during driving


It sounds like the rear calipers are bad. Raise the rear wheels and see if you can turn the tires. If you can't, open the bleeder. If you still can't replace the caliper. If you can turn the wheel after you open the bleeder, replace the brake hose to that wheel.
