Question about 2001 Toyota Corolla

2 Answers

My 2001 Toyota Corolla has a knocking sound to the front left when I apply the brakes. Sometimes when braking the right front or right back has a long squeak. All brakes just have been redone. Can you help? Thanks, Louise

It depends what they did when the brakes were serviced but sometimes the new brake pads don't seat well unless the brake rotors are finished properly. I suspect you'll need to return to the shop and ask them to re-finish the rotors and make sure the brake pad hardware is installed correctly. If the shop you went to has been in business for awhile, they should do this gladly for free since they have already been paid for the job. The only exception I would ad, is if they recommended something to you, such as new rotors, and you declined because of cost or otherwise.

Hope this helps,
Dave

Check the brake rotor backing plate to see if it is rubbing against the brake rotor, check the brake pad condition at the same time, it may be the low brake pad sensors that you are hearing.

First of all I would be arguing with the first shop for a refund. you reported an issue with the LEFT wheel and they worked on the RIGHT wheel...The "flex" line your refering to is probably the short length of brake line from the caliper to the hard line.

If the caliper was "locking up" you would get lot of grabbing and the car would veer to the left when you applied the brakes. I suspect the wheel bearing is bad.

2001 Corolla LE Brakes are not strong


Could be many things to look at. 2001 Corolla, assume disc pads in front, and regular drum style brakes in rear. Generally, most of your braking will come from the front disc brakes, and no adjustment is provided in these. Rear drum brakes can be adjusted two ways. Manually, they are adjusted by accessing the adjustment "cog" or threaded rod via a slot in the back of the plate that the drum fits up against. This should be done when the brakes shoes are first installed. As an alternative, the brakes will automatically adjust when you apply the brakes while backing up. I'd suggest that you find a big old empty parking lot, without a lot of light poles to hit, and place car in reverse, get going about 5 MPH, then hit the brakes firmly to stop. Repeat this a dozen times and see what results you get.

I am, of course, assuming that the brake fluid level is good and you see no leaks from either the front calipers or the rear brake cylinders.
