Is the parking brake pad on the inner part of the rotor adjusted properly? If the parking brake pad is rubbing on the inside of the rotor that can cause it to get extremely hot. Is there a lot of resistence when you freely turn the back wheels? The new pads might be slightly larger than they should be causing them to rub on the rotors. And you did grease the slider pins according to your statement. Did you really grease them well with a high temp lithium grease? Un-greased slider bolts can cause the pads to stay pushed against the rotor when the brake pedal is released.

Make sure the pads move very freely inside the caliper bridge rust can build up and bind pads causing excess friction. never hurts to double check the parts purchased are the correct application.

2001 jeep grand cherokee driver side rear brake locked up. replaced brake pads and rotor. wheel still getting hot but not locked. could it be the parking brake?


it could be,, check the brake line going to the brake and see if it has play ,, also, it could be the caliper isn't flowing , once they get overheated the grease in them ( the slide pins) tend to get stuck ,, pull the caliper apart and clean all the old grease of and re lube them

My rear brakes are getting way too hot on my 2000 Chevy Silverado. What could be causing this? I just replaced the brake pads and rotors. The back brakes seem to be seizing up and I can't figure out why.


This year of truck did have issues with rear disc brakes. Quality of pads is extremely critical. Go with the AC Delco pads and rotors to eleviate some of the issue. Make sure that the slide pins are liberally lubricated and move freely or drag will cause excessive heat to occur. Let me know if you need anything else.

BURNING SMELL FROM FRONT WHEEL BRAKE PADS OK NOT STICKING WHAT ELSE COULD BE WRONG


This is a common problem. This can happen from a piece of dust or plastic getting caught on the rotor. It should go away over time. If it doesn't you will need to make sure there is nothing stuck on the rotor or caliper.

Rear brakes (driver-side) squeal after replacing rotors and pads


you need to grease the metal clips at the top and bottom of the pads (dont get grease on the rotor or pad though) and also spray some "disc brake quiet" on the back of the pads. it comes in a red can and the spray that comes out is like sticky red paint. do those 2 things and the squeals will be gone.

I have a 2000 Passat and going to have my friend replace the rotors and breaks. I am preparing to fix it but want to know what sizes are the bolts for the calipers sliding pins. If you know the Bolt s


For a wrench or for the acctual bolt size.
To remove front pads..you need 8mm allen socket to pull the caliper guide pins, then 17 or 18mm..To remove rear pads...you need 13mm socket for lock bolt on guide pins and 15mm open end wrench (thin section to hold guide pin while you remove lock bolts..I ground down a spare wrench). You DO NOT have to remove rear carriers to change rotors..just remove lock screw and angle rotor out. The B5 Passats don't have the electronic parking brake so you don't need VAG Com to change pads.
Installation tips:
Clean and regrease the guide pins with "synthetic caliper grease"
Rear lock bolts come with preapplied thread locker and "are not to be reused"..I just wire brush the threads and use some Loctite Blue on em. I smear just a little antisieze on the inside bore of the rotors and on the lock screw threads to prevent corrosion and make next rotor change ez. Torques:
Front caliper guide pins:18 ft lb
Front carrier bolts: 89 ft lb
Rear guide pin lock bolts:26 ft lb
Wheel lugs: 89 ft lb

Rear end noise on 2006 mitsubishi outlander


There is a race bearing on the back side of the rotor. If you haven't replaced it, I would strongly recommend it. You should change those out every time you change your rotors. Most new rotors come with new race bearings, if it did come with a new one (and it isn't shot yet), pull it out and pack it with grease. Wear latex gloves, put a pile of general purpose grease in your hand, and start stuffing the grease into the bearing until it comes out the other side.

Hot brakes


Take the top off your master brake cylinder to relieve pressure. You may have over-pressured things if you didn't take the cylinder cap off when you compressed the rotors. You said pads, so I assume they are rear disc brakes.
