Question about 2002 Dodge Ram 3500 Truck

1 Answer

Woking on my 2002 Dodge one ton dually 2 wheel drive. Brake pads had gotten really worn, to the metal and damaged the rotors. As I haven't used the truck much I put off the repairs. Recnelty I repalaced all rotors, calipers and pads, bled the system. The pedal is still not solid and the brakes are not stopping the vehicle very well, any ideas on what I overlooked? Thanks, Joe.

When i drive there is a loud grinding by front right wheel. what could this be?


There are a few possibilities.
The brake pads have worn down and there is now metal to metal contact with your brake disk/rotor

The driveshaft is worn

The wheel bearing has worn

A grinding noise - when braking - is usually associated with worn brake pads.

If the grinding noise is there while you drive without braking, it could be the brake pads/rotors, yes .. but it also may point to the wheel bearing or driveshaft itself.

You can raise the car, after removing the wheel, and look at the brake pads/rotor.

However, sir, if you can't do these mechanical things yourself, please do go to a workshop. The value of your life far outweighs the cost of repair

Squealing at the right front wheel


The brake lining's have worn away, the squealing was metal to metal (worn pad against metal disc) The worn pad will have damaged the brake disc. Very dangerous. You will now have to have new brake pads and discs fitted to BOTH front wheels to put it right. Good luck

I hear a loud scaping noise from my 2005 Toyota camry when i press on the brakes.


Sounds like the brake pads may be worn out in the front. Make sure that there is not metal to metal contact that may score the rotors. Also, check the shoes and drums for the rear brakes if so equipped.

If you need instructions on how to disassemble, let me know.

My left front wheel squeeks until i press the break pedal


Most likely the brake shoe in that wheel is worn down to the rivets and those metal rivets are scraping on the drum. If you have a new brake shoe installed right away you will be ok. if you wait, you may also have to have the drums turned. By the way brake shoes come in pairs so they will change both front brake pads. Joe

2002 pontiac Grand Am, the wheels keep locking up while


Not likely any bearings...
Most likely the brake pads are worn down to the metal rivets that hold the braking material to the shoes (or pads).

The rivets have made a "rut or ridge" in the brake rotor or the brake drum.

If the sound is in the back, then the brake shoes must be replaced and at least one drum has to be replaced.

If the sound is in the front, then the brake pads must be replaced and at least one rotor has to be replaced. The front rotors can be viewed easily with a flashlight, shining through the wheel.

The read drums may be very difficult to remove; patience.... and care...

Wheels Makes Noise...


You need to have your brake pads replaced. They make that sound when they get worn down so you know to change them. There is a little piece of metal that rubs on the brake rotor to tell you this. Hope this helps
