I have a 2000 chevy malibu. I recently replaced the front brake pads. After this when driving down the road when i hit bumps something in the frontend rattles, i can hear and feel it.. when i hit or ride...


A loose pad could do it.
Check the pad anti-rattle clips again. The pads should be snug in the calipers. Its possible the new pads are not the exact same shape as the old ones.

2005 toyota corolla squeaky front brakes when braking at 10mph. changed brakes, rotors, controll arm, pad. What else noise is till there?


anti rattle plates are damaged, remove pads clean rear surface apply thin layer of silicon to pad allowing it to dry then reinstall as per std, this will stop the squeak, or replace anti rattles, silicon is cheaper will last the life of pad, but all new pads will have to be treated the in the same manner .

I had my rear brake pads replaced and now have a rattle from the pads. Goes away if I pull up the handbrake one notch or step o n the brake pedal lightly.


There should be an adjustment to take up the slack in the parking brake cable. Although, If the brakes were properly serviced, there should not be any looseness in the brake pads. There are sprays and stick on pads that go on the back of brake pads to prevent rattles and squeaking. It would necessitate removing the brake caliper and brake pads. Personally, I would take it back to the shop that did the job and make them fix it. New pads should not rattle.

Car rattle when driving on smooth road noise coming from all 4 corners ford puma when going over bumps etc . totally worse on an uneven surface . any ideas ?


I think you should check brake calipers and brake pads. The suspension is in constant motion and the shock dampening for the body is suppose to isolate the body.

There are compounds like "Brake Quiet" which is a rubberized paste that is to be applied between the pads and caliper. You may need new brake hardware which will tighten the pads and calipers to the car.

Check your heatshields on the exhaust system. Gravel can get sandwiched between them and rattle like crazy. Check them COLD and hit them with your hand and listen for rattles. Sometimes hubcaps can pickup stones, but if you work on the brakes you will be taking the hubcaps off anyway. Good Luck on this repair.

Rear brake pads rattle


There are spring clips which keep the pads tight in the caliper. These spring clips are missing, or are broken, or have lost their tension, etc.

Rattle in left rear brake when hit a bump, Ithink it is one of the pads


If you are able to make the rattle go away by slightly pulling on the parking brake, then the problem is with the brake pad. Replace pad.

first make sure to ask if the cv joints or axels are new or rebuilt,
if they are rebuilt, make sure to have the ring close to the sensor inspect for posible crack on it, and on the brake light most of timesx they come with a wear sensor, make sure that sensor is been replaced, since here you are not explaning if you replace the brakes your self or a shop did it, you might explained but i did not see it or pay atention , any way make sure to doble check than the wear sensor for brakes is been replaced, since not all the auto repairs will do it, and finally i suspect than one of your calipers might be loose, just have your car take to a diferent auto repair than offer free brake inspection and have them check for posible loose calipers
