Remove brake caliper assembly, will have two bolts, one on top and one below on back side of caliper, that the part where the brake pads fit in, you will also need a C-CLAMP to press the caliper piston in, when pressing caliper piston, used old brake pad in front of piston, to press piston in with C_CLAMP, some brake fluid will leak out of master cylinder when pressing piston in, that's ok, just refill if needed when done, do the same on both side's, no need to open bleeder on caliper or remove brake hose, after your done replacing brake pads, before you move van, you will need to pump brake paddle back up, paddle will be to the floor, but will pump back up, check brake fluid level, and your done with your brakes, hope this was very helpful.

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.

Scrapping sounds whenever brakes beein applied


DONT drive it any more, except straight to the nearest brake shop.

Brakes can wear out in a year depending on the hardness of the pads fitted. Many are soft to prevent any squealing.

If your model has wear indicators fitted to the brakes, these will squeal or scrape when the brakes are worn.

If not, I think your brakes are possibly worn down to the metal. This has to be attended to ASAP.

The wobbling over 65mph indicates a front wheel balance is needed, and maybe an alignment. This would be fairly routine after a year of driving.

The ABS light may be a separate fault, or related to brake wear. Either way, don't ignore this. Brakes are not to be messed with.

The noises when turning left and right, in a FWD car, indicate your CV joints may be failing. The classic test is to get in a parking lot, and do slow circles at full lock, left then right, listening out the window. Clicking or grinding noises will indicate you probably need replacement front axles, about $150 parts plus labour.

Shop around.

Scraping grinding noise in front passenger side wheel. Could it be a replacable wheel bearing?


When both a scraping and grinding noise is heard from a wheel, it typically indicates a problem with the brakes, not the bearings. If when the brakes are applied, the noise changes, it does indicate a possible brake issue. I would first check the brakes and then take a close look at the bearings, as they can still cause the grinding noise, but not typically the scraping noise. Hope this is helpful.

Noise from offside rear wheel when turning, it sounds like a bearing but we don't think it is that, its not really a 'knocking' more of a scraping, grinding sound. Its not continious, seems to occur mainly...


Have the front brakes checked alot of times the brake pads wear down to the point that the wear warning indicator starts to rub on the rotor or disc and makes a scraping sound when turning, your front brake pads are due to be replaced, I am 80% sure.

Scraping pulse noise r front merc sable


Check the condition of the wheel bearings, front and back side if the brake rotor, and the back side of the rim. Everything should be clean, rust build-up can throw everything out of true. The hub or wheel-bearing should be tight and smooth when spun.

I Think I have a front wheel bearing problem


Check wheel bering for play if there is no play , it doesn't mean that bearing is NOT bad its can still be dry and would be making that grinding sound you described Also check axle and see if boot is broken. That may be your problem also make sure that rotors are not gouged/scraped up and pads are good.Contact if you need more help and thanks for using FIX YA

OCCASIONAL Metallic scraping noise - New ceramic brake pads.


You could be right with the wheel bearings. But first take the wheel off and check that nothing is scraping the rotor. Look all the way around the rotor. A suggestion will be that the brake pads have worn enough that the brake pad wear indicator is starting to scrape. Pry them back a little.
