Break pedal squeaking


is the squeak inside the car? if so, then yes it's probably the pedal or linkage. If it's outside the car, then either the brakes were done poorly or the pads are defective. Assuming you had the front and rear brakes done. Could be the other brakes if only 1 axle was serviced.

Just bought 2003 GTI for daughters first car when pressing brake pedal I hear a clicking/knocking sound in left front tire area only when applying breaks? had CV axle changed on that side


If it only does it when using the brakes, the problem is most often something with the brake caliper or rotor. The caliper or the pads may be loose.

really dont understand what your saying but, i would look into the master cylinder as a failed diaphram vacuum. If your break pedal is real hard to push and you really dont have alot of beaking it is the master cylinder

After driving for around 30 minutes, the brake


That sounds like the "Porportioning valve" is defective.
You may want to go to your local library and check out a Chilton's, or some other repair manual for the "how to" to fix yourself or take it to a tech you can trust.

1997 Pontiac Grand Am Front right brake caliper not working right


Check the brake hoses. The rubber hoses that come from the hard line, (Metal), to the caliper.
If these are the original ones that came with the vehicle, they are overdue to be changed out.

Do they have any weather cracking on the outside? No? That's okay as they break down on the inside, and sometimes this isn't apparent from the outside.

The rubber brake line is a composite. A sheath on the inside, then a steel braided hose, then another sheath on the outside.
The sheath on the inside breaks down, and a piece of the rubber compound blocks the hose opening, when you step on the brake pedal.

The brake line can also swell up a little, as you step on the brakes, causing that spongy feel.

I just replaced my front rotors, pads, and calipers on a 98 olds achieva. After doing this I bled the the front brakes but am now experiencing a very soft pedal. I am wondering if something else could be...


Because of the ABS system if you press the brake pedal with too much pressure then it will give you the illusion of a soft pedal. Does it feel like a soft pedal when the vehical is in motion and you then press on the brake pedal (normal)? The other thing is if your pads and/or caliper were frozen, when you changed them out. The brakes are not going to feel or brake exactly the same, after the repair. But you are there, if the pedal is real low or goes to the floor then there is still air in the system or for some reason, your master cylinder is defective.

Front brakes make noise when applied after installing new pads.


it could be because they are dirty. also the noise could be the back brakes. if its a squeaking noise it could be that they are dirty or that they are cheep brake pads and for the first couple of weeks they squeak. also when you got your breaks changed did the break shop cut the rotors because that cleans them up and makes the rotors like new.

2002 camry breaks


take off brake caliper, take off your brake pads. check the sliders. sliders are on the side of the bracket. see if they are moving freely in and out. im pretty sure they are seized. that's why your pedal is soft and sinks down really fast when applied.

Ford Escape Breaks


Did you replace them yourself or did you take them to a "qualified brake specialist"? It sounds like your brake lines need to be bled properly. You may also have one or more calipers sticking to cause the vibration.
