I have a clicking and grunting noise from rear brakes, also a scraping noise on a 2006 NISSAN ALTIMA. i was told by one mechanic that cheap brakes and rotors make noise like this and that I should change the rotors when i change my brakes. Is this true?

This could be true. if the rotors are worn down(if it looks and feels as if there is a lip on the edge of the rotor) then most likely you may need to have them replaced.

2006 pt cruiser making scraping noise when wheel turning to the right


is it a scraping noise or a clicking noise. a scraping noise could indicate a brake noise when turning have the brakes checked in the front. if its a clicking noise only when turning to the right then you may have a bad cv joint on the right half shaft. replace the half shaft assembly.

Rear end noise when driving 2006 nissan altima


Your car has no "rear end" as people used to call them.
The "rear end" was a set of gears on the old rear wheel drive vehicles that put power to the back wheels.
Since you have a front wheel drive car, the problem you have is much easier to diagnose and repair.
You very likely have a bad rear wheel bearing or two on one side.
A way to tell is to spin the rear wheels one at a time and compare how much noise they make.
The bad one should be noisy.
I cannot think of any easy way to spin the rear wheels one at a time.
Perhaps using a "mechanic's stethoscope" might help.
Raise the car safely up in the air, crawl under the car, and place a long screwdriver tip against the center of the inside of the axle under the car where the wheel bearing are.
If you can't imagine where to put the screwdriver, get someone who knows to help you.
Put the handle in to your ear, and have someone spin the wheel by hand.
One should be noisier than the other.
Be blessed.

When the car is cold go to drive off it sounds


As you apply your car brakes, your brake pads/shoes wear against the brake rotors/drums. Rear brakes usually have brake drums. As your brake shoe linings wear (as would be the case for your car), the brake linings from the brake shoes have worn down to metal and they wear into the metal of your brake drums. After you park the car at night, the natural moisture in the air facilitates an oxidation (rusting) process along your brake drums. When you get in your car and take off in the morning, you have a light layer of rust that gets scraped off by your worn brake shoes. This is what is causing that annoying noise you hear in the morning (or after the car has been parked for hours). Simply put, you need a rear brake job. They will also check your front brakes and can let you know how much life you have left up front. If you continue to drive around like this, you'll end up ruining your rear brake drums and this will quickly become more expensive. When you have a rear brake drum job completed, they will likely "turn" your rear brake drums - which means they will put the drums on a mechanical lathe that will scrape any uneven surface into one congruous even surface.

Rear brake repair


$60 for the set of pads (left and right)
and 1 hour labor (depending on your area) $50-$124.
Ceramic pads.

Semi Metallic Non-Asbestos Organic Pads are $37
Semi-metallic Cheapo pads are $22

Your car is not "special" :D
Maybe they only had the "special" ones in stock.

Go with your instinct.
