Hi,
The 'brake' light on the dash or the rear brake lights? Did you ensure the brake fluid level is correct?

How to unglaze glazed drum breaks


Rear Drums & shoes should be changed at the same time. The same goes for the front pads & rotors. Usually the drums & rotors are pre-cut but I ask at the counter if they need cutting because I have ended up with uncut squealers once or twice and found the drum needed to be re-cut due to minute warp-age. If the grinding is the same as before the brakes were changed then all th e brakes need changing not just the ones you thought needed it. Quiet pads & brakes have a beveled edge instead of an abrupt 90 degree angle. Ceramics tend not to squeak. As for un-glazing, in the old days we ran 60 grit sand paper along the wear surface until it was sufficiently scuffed to stop the squeal. It didn't work for very long & usually the squeal worked itself out with wear in a week or 2. good luck.

Do rotors wear out before the break pads do? I own a Honda CR-V 2009 and was just told my rotors need machening but I don't need to replace the break pads. Can this be right?



Hi Nancy,

Typically pads need to be changed more than once before rotors needs to be *replaced*. Most shops machine rotors when changing pads to give them a smooth, even surface. Machining removes groves that cut into them as a result of normal wear (or if pads are not replaced promptly). Machining can straighten warped rotors due to excessive heat / quick cooling. These are definitely NOT considered "worn out".

Worn out rotors must be *replaced* if they are too badly damaged, rusted, etc. or if they have been machine so many times that they are too thin to safely brake the car. There are specific guidelines that spell out exactly how thin rotors can be before they must be replaced. Mechanics measure the thickness of the rotor with a micrometer which reveal thicknesses to the 1/1000 of an inch.

I hope this was helpful & good luck!

Rear rotor will not come off kia sorento 07


You only have two possiblities

The lip on both sides of the rotor that
the pads are hung on & rust from never
removing all rust from hub & using anti-seize

You have to take apart brakes once a year to
get rid of rust, even if no other attention is needed

If the pads are out-- hit the rotor with 2x4 to break the rust

Make sure you replace both your rotors & pads. Don't just replace one side.

I have a 2001 dodge ram 1500 that Upon breaking begins to vibrate and kinda bounce plus it wants to pull to he right away from the side that vibrates. Any ideas. The vibrating and shaking begins about one...


You need to have the front rotors turned or replaced. Take a set of dial calipers and measure the rotor thickness. compare that to the specs on the rotor and that will let you know if you can turn them. Put new pads on and make sure to lube the slider pins.

I had new pads installed on the front of my 2005 chevy equinox, the rotors were turned and it stops perfectly execpt the front right wheel always squeaks and is geting worse even though I used the 20/30...


I personally never have had one braking issue, in 47 years
of doing brake work,on any vehicles

That said & not to write book here

The brake work & choice of friction material
(brake pads) was not done correctly

Very few shops remove rust from anything
Rotor mounting surfaces,wheel hub surfaces,
calipers,caliper sliding surfaces,pad siding surfaces

Then they use no lube, so pads can move & release

They don't use MFG Specific & quality pads

A proper professional job would go for at least
$300.00 for front or back,just 2 wheels

Rotor machining is critical

I think your OEM Rotors that were machined, most likely
were okey new & not a good grade of Chinese Steel to
be machining

You don't. Check all the wheel speed sensors & make sure they aren't damaged. If not, check the codes & diagnose from there.

Breaks meaking load noises


Did you turn the rotors when you replaced the pads? if the rotors are not turned they will squall. Also you should have used some break quiet on the back of the pads you can get it at the parts store
