Front brakes and rotors were replace last wednesday. On Sunday, when I put the car in reverse, there was a clunking noise and the car kept stopping like the brakes were sticking or too tight.

Hi You will need to bleed the brake lines to loosen the brakes. Loosen the brake valves while your B man is pumping on the brake pedals. This will clear the air on the brake lines and can resolve the issue. Hope this helps and good luck!

    Yes its something you can do if you want to explore. The bleed valves is where the brake fluid comes out to clear the air on the brake lines. Let your B man to pump the brake pedals atleast 10 times and let him hold it while you release / loosen the bleed valve then quickly tighten it again. Please be careful when loosening the valves for the brake fluid may hit your eyes, I suggest that you wear protective goggles to prevent injuries. You may need to do the procedure several times til the brakes are free. If you feel that you cant do this, please try to see a mechanic.

Hi my 2010 Rav4 makes loud clunking noises when reversing uphill and when I break after reversing? Could this be suspension? Or breaks? There is no squeal noise it's clunking thanks


Does the 2010 have shoes inside the disc for the handbrake?
They might be out of place and catching on a burr on the inside of the disc. If you have slotted rotors, it could be that the pad has worn funny and is catching on the slots on the rotor.
Either way, I would be looking at brakes over suspension.
If you do not know what you are doing, see a mechanic. They are brakes after all, keeping you alive...

Brakes - most common is brake pads were replaced with non-OEM pads and/or rotors were machined during the brake service. Use OEM brakes pads and replace, instead of machining, rotors. Again, use OEM parts for best results. GM recommends replacing rotors during brake service on that model, similar to European models. Unfortunately, GM has not priced the rotors as the Europeans have priced theirs.
Transmission noise - I am assuming a "clunk" noise when shifted while at a stop, also known as "garage shift". Most common is the bushings in the rear differential housing mounts. They may look OK upon inspection but when removed they will be split. Second common is similar issue with transmission mount itself, although that is quite rare.
Brake lights - Any competent automotive electrical repair facility should be able to diagnose this as there is an open in the circuit somewhere. That system is relatively simple and stratagy based diagnosis should lead the technician to the problem.

Clunking noise and brakes grabbing


Check your brake hardwares make sure its in proper places and not loose. you would also want to check the caliper sliders, clean and lubricate with silicon lube. and lastly make sure that rotor backplates are not touching the rotors, you can do this by spinning the rotors while the wheel is off, if it is, then pry the backplates a little. hope this would help, goodluck.!
