Sounds like the pistons are sticking in the calipers. Also check the brake hoses, I had a collapsed one that was making the caliper not release.

Hello, i have a 94 dodge spirtit with a rattle on the passsengers front side when i go over bumps sometimes its not as bad when brake is applied.


try changing your brake pads...brake caliper may have play causing it to rattle due to the pads being worn down.

Front brakes drag (more on left than right) while driving in rush hour stop-and-go traffic. Both rims get hot the left more than the right. Also have some steering wheel vibration and brake pedal pulsing....


Sounds like the pads are completely worn or either crystallized. The crystallized happens when the brakes get hot and cool water hits them, this will also warp the rotors. With the brakes pulsating, it may be the rotors are warped and have worn the brake pads uneven. I would have the rotors checked when buying new pads and if they are warped, buy new ones. If their not warped to bad, sometimes these can be machined until even but you never know how much metal will be left on the rotor.

My car seems to warp front discs? Serviced the


Check your rear brakes. If the rears are not adjusted or functioning properly, they will put more strain on the front brakes, thus heating the rotors up too fast. Since the rotors in the front cannot dissipate the heat fast enough, they will most likely continue to warp until the problem with the rear brakes is fixed. Always remember: when installing brakes you need to lube all of the key points. On disc brakes, lube the area where the pads sit in the hangar, make sure the clips are free of dirt and rust. Lube the pad backing (not the part that contacts the rotor!) and be sure to remove and lube the sliding pins on the caliper well. I personally like using AGS's Sil Glyde or CeramLube. These withstand heat the best. On drums, lube the metal side of the shoe that contacts the backing plate, and be sure to lube your adjusters well. Also, very important: if you have rear drums, make sure they are adjusted the right way, you dont want them to drag, but you dont want to go thru another set of front rotors again! Good luck, 99% of the time, too much focus is put on the front brakes and not the rears. Focus on the rears!

Thanks for asking!

Right rear pad and worse


The problem described here indicates that you may have the AWD (full time 4WD) drivetrain of the 2003 Element.

It is normal to have 1 side of the vehicle to have increased wear due to the transmission differential, that allows your vehicle's wheels to move at different speeds from the others (turning, inclines, etc.)

Your brake pads really need constant inspection and possible replacement (approx 5,000 miles) with everyday driving, and is really a consumable item like your fuel.

You will find that it is much cheaper to replace the brake pad/lining of your disc brakes than grinding down the supposedly shiny discs that slow down your vehicle.

RE: salt/snow, you can improve your discs' longevity by rinsing them out with warm water after being driven in extreme conditions.

Hope this helps.

Creaky sound upon tapping brake, and brown right rear tire


Looks like you need to change the brake pads sooner than later, the brown residue is the brake dust and the burning smell might be the dust hitting the the tyre.

Rear disc brakes drag after installing new pads


Just did my rear brakes this weekend, Monday had a very slight drag. Noted that when I installed new pads I had to tap them on. That shouldn't be. When brakes are released, there should be enough play to allow the pads to back off the disc. Tonight, I removed the pads and filed down the ends of the tips that go into the top and bottom channels until I could install and remove them with fingertips, that gives them enough play to grab and release. Drag disappeared; the old girl ran like she should.

Brake Problem


hi im dave
hope i can help
when you had the rear pads applied and the discs turned was there noticeable damage to the disc surface it sounds like your e brake cable is not adjusted properly or perhaps the braided wires inside the insulation are seperating along your brake cable causing the rear brakes to not be adjsting themselves properly. Every time the parking brake is applied the rear brakes are self adjusted if they arent being applied due to slack in or a broken cable you will not adjust your rear brakes. This would accont for the flutter in the brake pedal as hydraulic fluid is still circulating to compress the pads against the rotor but the pads arent reaching the rotor.
