You should really change both sides at the same time. Your new pads are not broken in yet, and will not work as well as the pads on the other side. If you did not roughen up the glazed rotor, have it turned or change it, the new pad may not work well for a while on the old glazed surface.
I know it's expensive, but on my personal vehicles, I always replace the rotors when I replace the pads. That way, you have the same braking power as when the car was new. Also, I love my wife, and she drives my cars.

I have a 2001 Sebring , brand new rear pads,rotars and calipers. Passenger side is sticking but has a lot of pad left. Driver side seems to work but half the pad is gone. Any idea why this is?


Seems like all the brake action is on the driver's side. If passenger side is sticking, it probably won't move in or out effectively. I would pull it off and check it, maybe you got it crooked when mounting it. Or just possibly a bad caliper. Also examine the brake hose on the passenger side for bulges, or anything wrong with it.

My 2000 Dodge caravan's brakes are screeching after I changed them. Its only been 2 months since I changed them and its becoming very annoying. Changed the brakes and brake pads.


did you apply the brake pad anti squeal grease it should be applied generously to back of brake pads & also where brake calipers where brake pads will travel as they wear in some cases hard lifetime brake pads usually bmw/other german vehicles will simply squeal unless you install softer &wont last as long but im sure that brake grease will solve your noise issue you should have got a small tube where you purchased the brake pads !

My 1999 feel like the brakes are stuck..I drive it some meters it release then sticks again..while sometimes pulling left


when dealing with brake issues, both sides need to be adressed, if you replace anything on one side, other side requires same work, both calipers and brake pads, and possibly both rotors need to be replaced !!! rotors can be out of round, never use "used pads" , right now your new caliper is working better than the used caliper on otherside, thus still pulling like before ! DO YOU UNDERSTAND !!!

I just put 2 brand new sets of rotors and pads on my 02 s10 4wd because there is a scrubbing noise on the front passenger side brakes. after replacing them one time the drivers side is fine but when you...


Its possible that the driver side is not clamping well. Sticky caliper piston. Forcing the passenger side to do most of the work. This will result in rapid overheating which will cause the passenger rotor to look bad after a short drive. Does driver side still look new? Do you feel any sideways pulling when braking? What prompted you to look again after changing rotors and pads? Since you first noticed noise on passenger side, indicating excessive wear, I think the problem is the drivers side caliper. You could try working caliper piston out and in a few tmes, but usually you want to replace a problem caliper.

The front left brake on my 99 malibu grinds as i drive,and pulls to one side as i brake


Bad caliper, or you just need to rebuild your caliper. The grinding noise is likely caused from the pads being bad and the rivets are grinding on the rotor. I recommend if you are a handy person, rebuild the caliper, if not then buy a new one and replace it and bleed the brakes

Drivers side brake smoking after driving and rubbing noise


Your caliper is locked up. Change the break hose and caliper, you will also need new pads as the ones thats on there will have glazed over.
