For the front it would be an hour of labor and you can get rotors for about 150 but dont cheap on on rotors or pads and get the good ones because theyll last longer. the front and back would be about 2 hours

Hello Gena,
You might want to think about taking it to a repair shop /and/or dealer which does nothing else except brakes. I take my own vehicles to Midas, due to the simple fact they backup there lifetime warranty on the brake pads & labor to replace them.

Brake replacement and/or service is not cheap, expect to pay in the range of $400 - $475 U.S. Bankrupt Dollars (smiles here), however, it will costs you even more if you go someplace who does not have lifetime parts & labor. *** BE SURE TO ASK THEM & GET IT IN WRITING ON CONTRACT *** this is going to be on your receipt. Almost EVERYONE forgets to do this simply check which will save you hundreds of dollars!
Even being a female, you might want to ask them how do I know when my Brakes need service, I will give you a FREE hint about this if you want to hear it.

When you hear squeeking noise ONLY when you use the brake pedel, take it in & have them check for those costly brakes, they will alway's do a check for ya ...FOR FREE if you have a little time to wait. If you let this noise turn out to be a GRINDING METAL TO METAL noise, you are too late, you just ate through ANY guarantee! Simple as that...sorry lady, we do not cover misuse!, I guarantee it!

Remember, the GREAT places which does a GREAT job are located where there service parking areas are ALWAY'S full, versus the ok, to poor locations which are always in repair for your money instead of service, there service parking areas will be empty or very very few waiting in line.
ALWAY'S make an appointment with a scheduled time of drop off to time of pick up, do they offer a shuttle service to take you to work & pick you up? WOW! good luck finding these OTHER than the dealers which will costs you more initially but is the shuttle service worth the extra you might pay?

It is always up to YOU since YOU are the person paying the price of the repair, it is ALWAYS too much during the current economic conditions, PLEASE, do not skip on your brakes, they will keep you & your loved ones safe!

GOOD DAY & PEACE OUT!

MY BACK BRAKES SQUICK


If is is a metal to metal squeak, you need new brake pads or shoes, which ever it uses.. It is now 8 and a set of brakes all around is most likely in order. If you do not drive it much, and it is not a metal to metal squeak, you need to get some anti squeak gunk squirted between the back of the pads and the caliper, and the rotors resurfaced. The labor to do this is the same as new brakes, so see above.

After a couple visits to our local mechanics for brakes repair of a 2006 chevy siverado short bed reg cab. My rear brakes are the problem first the mechanics changed them out with premium pad then now...


Make sure the mechanic checked the park brake shoes inside the rear rotors, they quite often break away from the lining and get wedged in the rotor, sometimes causing a constant squeal noise. I've also seen the brake pad anti-rattle metal clips become loose and wander in the caliper bracket, they lightly rub against the rotor and cause a squealing noise similar to worn brake pads. They are also very bad for the backing plates rusting out prematurely and rubbing on the inside of the rotor. Other than that he can just try to champher the edges of both front and rear pads to help dissipate the brake dust, from collecting and causing squeak noises.

There is a squicky annoying noise coming from the brakes everytime i hit them. it has been going on for like a month now. what could be the solution?


This is most likely a warning coming from your brakes that the pads need replacing.

There is a device in the brake pads which squeaks/squeals when the pad wears doen to a certain point.

The noise will eventually go away, but so will your brakes. It's time to have them serviced.

Front end squeaking possible rotor rubbing something.


Have you checked the metal clips that olds the brake pads in the front galiper bracket. They usualy rust, break loose and come in contact whit the disc, creating a squeaking noise. Those should be replace since they are needed for the brakes to work properly

Wheels Makes Noise...


You need to have your brake pads replaced. They make that sound when they get worn down so you know to change them. There is a little piece of metal that rubs on the brake rotor to tell you this. Hope this helps

2003 Kia Sedona Ex. Squeaks when brakes


Most likely, there are metal peaces on the break pad, for when the pads get wore down to a certain point they rub the rotor to let you know its time for new breaks.

Back Wheel Squeaking - Rotors and Brakes


If it isn't the brake pad worn out, then it is the brake backing/dust guard sheet metal shield ( AKA backing plate), take a suitable device like a large screwdriver and bend the backing plate away from the rotor. Problem solved.
