Im driving a 2000 Chrysler 300M> I just had the break done and know I'm hearing a hissing noise when I break. What could this be and will it be very expensive to fix?


First, your question has to be translated. Do you mean brake(s)?

If so, and the person who did the brake job resurfaced the rotors, then you're probably hearing the pad lining rubbing the rough rotor surface when you apply the brakes. This is because the machines they use to resurface the rotors don't put the same smooth finish on them like a new one has. The rough surface in contact with the pad lining will make a noticeable sound until the rotors are burnished (worn smooth) from use.

On a side note: It's really not a very good idea to resurface brake rotors. They end up thinner, which makes heat dissapation more difficult. Rotors aren't that expensive. It's always best to replace them rather than resurfacing them.

My car subaru impreza 2007 wobble when braking


Rotors are warped. You can remove them yourself and have them resurfaced at a local garage for about $20 each, buy new rotors, or have a shop do the work for you. Depends on how good you are with a set of tools.

Brake rotors on my 92 diahatus applause have a lip on the outer eedge is this normal


Yes and no.
A lip on the edge means the pads have worn the rotor surface down past the original thickness.
It is always recommended the rotors be resurfaced when pads are replaced, if the rotors are thick enough to do so safely.
Otherwise they should be replaced.

I replaced my rotors and pads on my 1994 pick up (4x4) as I apply the brakes the right front shakes severely. I had the rotor resurfaced,checked to make sure the new inner and outer bearings are seated...


Seems likely that the rotor is the problem. There are affordable dial indicators at tool stores these days ... although if the shaking is severe and it IS the rotor you can probably see the run out when you spin the axle.

I have a Hummer H3. I hear Noise from wheels while turning & doesn't stop. Also I hear a grinding noise when I hit the brakes. Dealer had to resurface rotors. Problem started at 15000 miles. Took it...


Ranjit,

I have the same problem with my 2008 Hummer H3. I had the front and rear rotors resurfaced. I am now thinking of getting the rotors replaced with bigger more durable rotors. Solution about the sticking brake caliper sounds about right if you hear a grinding noise as you drive without even touching the brake pedal.

My bmw x5 has squeeky rear brakes ever since i renewed the pads, its driving me mad. any ideas?


Resurface the rotors, if not resurfaceable due to limited specifications then buy new rotors. If your pads are fairly new and no cracks are present then resurface the pads with sand paper or a power tool with a sanding disc. Make sure all is lubed with caliper grease, and cleaned prior with brake cleaner.

Changed pads and rotors on my 2002 blazer but the truck still has somewhat of a grinding noise in the brake area at at times brakes are slow to take hold .Thank u in advance


THE BRAKE ROTORS AND BRAKE DRUMS IS GLAZED NEED EITHER RESURFACED IT NOT WORN DOWN FAR. OR REPLACED.SOMETIMES YOU CAN USE ROUGH GRIT SAND PAPER TO REMOVE GLAZE FOR A WHILE BUT STILL GOING HAVE TO RESURFACE OR REPLACE IN THE LONG RUN.

Braking Problem


sounds as though the brake rotors are warped. if they are in otherwise good condition, a shop may be able to resurface them. however, you should have the brakes checked for overall condition, it may be time for a complete brake job. good luck!

350z Rotors need to be cut at only 10K miles


Your rotors should be fine but it also depends on who turned the rotors and how they were done.Considering the dealer replaced the pads they probably used a metallic pad which have been known to be a noisy .Id suggest you have a repair shop resurface your rotors again and install some ceramic brake pads.

Car shimmies when appling brakes at over 40 mph


your brake rotors are warped, if your vehicle is equipped with rear drum brakes have them cleaned and adjusted to keep your front brakes from working too hard and becoming warped, also replacing the front rotors is better than resurfacing them because after bieng resurfaced they are thinner and are more prone to becoming warped again
