Bought a 2005 magum sxt apr. 29. awsome car except for one issue. the front brakes rattle at lower speeds. i know its in the brakes because when i apply the brakes the rattle goes away. i had the front suspension checked out and an allignment done by an expert and the front suspension was tight. i have replaced the caliper brackets, sliders calipers, pads and all the hardware. still rattling. bad design ? is this a common problem with this vehicle ? do they make an upgrade kit for this problem ?

Go to a Chrysler dealership and get the factory anti rattle brake pad springs. That will get the rattle out for you. Most others sold at auto parts stores are made in foreign countries that use inferior metal that break down from heat get from the brakes

    Thats the best solution i've heard yet. although i'm sceptacle. Thanks for the input. I'm sure the new hardware that i installed is aftermarket. You are one of the first responders that didn't try to tell me the rattle is something else. This rattle goes away completely when i apply the brakes, so i'm sure thats where the problem is. I'm no master mechanic but i've been doing most of my own work for a lot of years. I've done a lot of brakes and never had this problem. Plus i'm 200.00 into it and still have the problem. I will go to our dodge dealer and see if i can purchace the anti rattle clips. THANKS ALOT

I have this car and have had it for 41/2 years, there is no rattle in my car nor is there any information from Dodge that there is a problem ( i retired from a dealer), the only rattle reported is with the rear lift gate interior trim which is easily fixed, there is no "upgrade" kit just replacement parts, these are the same brakes used on the 320 series Mercedes, no rattle reported for that line of cars either, are the brake pads O.E.M. pads? it may be the caliper itself has wear spots or the anti rattle clips for the brake pads are defective, you are 100% sure the rattle is from the front calipers? are the brake pads tight in the caliper and have spring tension on them? I suggest u seek out a really good brake tech and have him road test the car, u may be completely wrong about the origin of the noise.

2005 dodge magnium sxt abs ebs light is on and coding to a right rear speed sensor and it was just changed. didn't fix the problem


Broken wire...Usually happens around the sensor, but could be anywhere from the rear sensor to the abs module. Just a note. Most wire breaks are just behind the plug. Within 1/2 inch.. Of the sensors.

05 neon making squealing noise while driving. the noise stops when brakes are pushed


inferior pads or improperly installed. it could be that they just need to conform to the disc and the sound will go away, but you should find out that everything else is ok. if you got one of those brake jobs with a lifetime warranty, then its definitely because of the pad material.

I have a 2005 camry with 260,000 km. I brought my car into the dealer for a routine maintenance asking them to check out a front end rattling when i go over large bumps. I was told that the control arms...


First,as you travel over a rough road that causes the rattle apply the brakes slightly,is the rattle gone now?If so it's loosely mounted brake pads and/or worn brake caliper mounting bolts/sliders.
Rattle still there with your foot on the brake?Then it's usually the sway bar links and/or sway bar bushings.
To check this sway bar noise,disconnect the sway bar links and tie the bar up/out of the way and try that same road.
No noise now? address sway bar bushings and/or links.
Still noise?Might be struts.
If someone tells you,.you have loose lower control arm bushings,have them show you the play in the bushings before you spend any $$$.

Only rattle at 5mph or lower and not all the time.


you'll find one wheel speed sensor dropping out in front due to build up of rust scale between hub and sensor remove speed sensor ypull notice scale,clean and reassemble.
