I don't think brakes should wear unevenly. If there are ridges or streaks in the rotor, they should be machined down if there is enough metal left, or replaced if machining is not possible.

I, unfortunately, don't have instructions for removing the caliper on my online resource, but one might try Alldata.com for that (but that's a separate cost).

The rear disc brakes are wearing out closer to the center of rotor faster, like the caliper is not aligned straight with the rotor. What is needed to correct problem?


Rotor out of alignment, uneven wear on thickness on rotor, caliper pushing bottom of pads faster, top guid pin sticking,
Remove rear pads take caliper off vehicle and disassemble lubricate all moving parts. Check thickness of rotor at several points to see if out of round or something

Y my breaks make noise on the rear of my g35 2004


It's most probably the wear indicators on the brake pads. They make an irritating low pitched intermittent squeal or groan each time they contact the turning rotor. The noise goes away when you step on the brakes. Check the pad wear by pulling off a wheel and looking through the slot on the circumference of the caliper. You should have even wear on both pads, and at least an eighth of an inch of pad left. If not even you'll need to pull the caliper, and clean and lube the pins it slides on. If worn or uneven, replace them; it doesn't pay to try and wait for pads to wear down any farther, because you'll probably end up scoring the rotor.

When i press my brakes my wheel shakes, what is this problem?


The brake rotors are warped. This is a common occurrence. It can be caused by numerous things; excessive rotor wear (too thin), uneven brake pad wear, sticky brake calipers, riding the brake pedal causing excessive heat buildup in the rotors, and over-torque of lug nuts are just a few causes. Having the rotors checked and re-machined may help, but normally they require replacement. If you replace rotors, it is advisable to replace the brake pads at the same time to avoid a poor wear pattern.

70000 mile brakes ware not even. this never happen in other trucks what size t takes front off and does a 19 socket take back off back brakes I plan to have them cut and change pads


The rear caliper cradle bolts are 18mm. A 19 may round the bolts off a bit.As far as them wearing unevenly we see this alot on the dual piston calipers.This may be due to rust underneath where the pads sit on the cradle. On the caliper cradle you will see some silver tin caliper hardware where the pads sit remove these and check for rust that may have built up benath these and clean if necessary. Once those are clean apply a thin coat of caliper lube then reinstall the caliper hardware. Make sure to also lubricate the hardware with lube before reinstalling your pads.Last but not least apply lubricant to the caliper guide pins.This will reduce that uneven wear you were referring to.

Brakes are wearing uneven. driver side brakes are engaging but passenger side is not


Either the caliper is bad or there is air in the line.I would pull the wheel off and have someone pump the breaks and see if the breaks try to move then try bleeding them out before I spent the money on a new caliper.

Why brake pads wearing uneven?


When your brakes are applied, the piston which is in behind the inner pad, pushes the pad outward against the rotor first,then that in turn basically pulls the outer pad and assembly inward for the sandwiching affect, squeezing the 2 pads together on either side of the rotor. Although there will be a little difference because of that, other things can effect how much wear difference that will occur, such as poor lubrication of the caliper slide bolts etc, as well as perhaps a partially seized caliper, or even a defective brake hose at caliper, as well as worn bushings in caliper that allow too much play, causing caliper to shift too much. Checking and keeping all those moving parts lubricated properly, will minimize uneven wear.

Uneven brake pad wear how do i fix it?


Unless one of your calipers is sticking or not engaging fully then there should be no reason for uneven wear unless you have a defective pad.

There will be uneven wear from the front to the back however. About 60% of the stopping power is provided by the front brakes and 40% from the rear , so your front brakes will wear faster than your rear brakes.

Problem with break caliber and pedal and rotor 99 corolla


you might have a froze caliper piston, he is asking for all of that because whenever you change a caliper out you dont just want to change the caliper but do the brake job while you are there because more than likely the rest of your brakes are worn as well and if you just do the caliper you will damage you brakes more because of uneven wear sometimes a caliper gets locked up from extreme wear on pads past limit, he is actually saving you money in the long run. now as far as price it doesnt take much to change a caliper out, if you pinch off the line hooking directly to that caliper and unhook it along with the two bolts, all you have to do is put the new one in and pump the brakes back up and then bleed them to ensure all air is out of brake system, and depending on make and model, bleed them starting from furthest wheel from master cylinder....in other words you should be able to find a better price cheaper considering they want to replace the rotors instead of resurfacing them so that is alot less time to just replace them it is merily just parts changing, I hope i could help
