I just replaced the front pads on my '09 Avenger and I'm getting a squealing sound from them only when the car go's forward. It's not a grinding noise but, more of a lite metal rubbing squeak. Any ideas?

It depends on who you go to and if you want it done right. I went to the Dealership and had them put front brakes on my 2008 Dodge Avenger and it has been in the shop every 2-4 months since then for front brakes. They replaced the entire front brake system and my 08 Avenger is still eating brakes. I finally took it to a friend who owns a auto repair shop he replace the rotors which are total about 115.00 for each from AutoZone and replaced the brake pads for 50.00 so it cost me just parts 155.00 and my Avenger is running smoothly since haven't had problems with the brakes since. Go to Midas and let them change it for roughly 89.00 avoid the dealership at all cost they can run 200.00-500.00 depending on if it is just the brakes pads or if it is the rotors and pads.

SOURCE: 325 ci brake rotors have been replaced 4 times in 6 years

BMW rotors are not known for lasting very much more than 30-45k miles. When the brakes are inspected, they measure the pads using a special tool threw the outer brake pad. Min spec is 3mm. When the pads are replaced, they measure the thickness of the rotors. The rotor spec is stamped on the rotor. if they are under that spec, they recommend replacing them as well. Next time you bring it in for service, just ask them to measure the rotor thinkness, (its not a huge task, all they have to do is take the wheels off). But more often than not, the rotors wear just as fast as the pads.

SOURCE: how do you replace rear rotors and brake pads on 2006 Jetta

There is a special tool you need to do this. It is virtually impossible to do without this tool. I got mine from Harbor Freight for $20. the kit comes in an small orange case and has multiple heads and it pushes and turns at the same time. Do not use a C-clamp, it will damage the piston. This tool still does use some manual labor, but it is worth it when you save a few hundred dollars doing it yourself!

Try replacing the brake hose. Sometimes they wear out, get soft and expand inside to the point that they restrict fluid returning to the mater cylinder.

Brakes


You can't just change pads without turning the rotors
& you have to remove all rust from caliper slides &
abutements & lube them
You can turn the rotors by hand & know the brakes
are not the issue, if you did the proper brake service/work

The person you have checking your vehicle is a parts replacer. Not a mechanic. He's just hoping to hit it right, eventually. Have someone check the sensors at the rotors my friend. Most likely one is out of position and not picking up the proper message for the computer. Yes, once the light is out, from all the other work he's done, it will come back on each time. That's just the nature of the beast. If it is just a sensor at the rotor out of adjustment, the light wont come back on.

Front brake problems of 1998 dodge avenger


Sounds like the calipers are not fully disengaging. Re-inspect the brakes, make sure everything is clean, then check to make sure the calipers back off when the brake is released.They wont be loose but the rotor should turn freely. Did you replace the rotors or have them turned?

My 2008 dodge avenger jerks when i come to a stop any idea what it could be.?


Jerks coming to a stop as in engine jerks, or does it seem like the brakes are jerking. When you leave off the pedal does it stop jerking? If it does it is probably warped rotors. A lot of new cars have this problem, my theory is that the brake pads they are using are way too hard. They put way too much heat into the rotor and warp it. Of course the rotors are none too heavy either. I think it is all in an effort to reduce weight in the vehicle.
