I have a 2003 pt cruiser and my brakes keep screaming, my dad checked both the back and front brake pads/drums but said that they were fine but would soon need to change the front pads. he also said that...


Screaming brakes dont mean the fluid is low, the brakes squeaking is due to vibration of the pads and calipers, the brakes could be fine and still squeak, in order to rid the noise you would need to remove the pads and replace the pad hardware clips and then apply some anti squeal to backside of the pads,this helps almost always but some cars the pads are so glazed that they need replacing and rotors machined or replaced, if your dad said they were good for now then its safe. if the noise is something you wish to get rid of then follow the above instructions. good day.

A light in the dashboard turns on today and I have no idea what is the symbol for? is like a circle with 3 rectangles in line on each side this is a BMW 318i, 1996


This is the brake wear indicator. When the brake pads get too thin, this sensor, which is mounted in the brake pad backing on the front left wheel and the rear right wheel, touches the rotor and wears through, grounding out the contacts and illuminating the light.
Once the light is lit, you will need to buy a new sensor as well as new brake pads. The sensor is not expensive.
First step is to examine the brake pads and determine if you need front pads or rear pads or both. Don't be surprised if you need new rotors as well as pads. Check for a significant lip at the outer edge of the rotor. If the pads have worn in the sides of the rotor more than about 1/16", you are due for rotors.
You cannot go wrong with BMW branded pads. They are safe and work great, but they are really dirty. If you want to try other brands, read the reviews. Some squeak and some fade.
I use Mexican made Brembo rotors. They work well but they rust quickly, so the brakes squeak a bit the first time you press them after washing the car or driving in the rain. More expensive rotors or BMW branded rotors don't rust so much, but they cost a lot more and don't necessarily last any longer.
After replacing the pads, turn the key to the On position and leave it on for about 90 seconds before starting the car to reset the brake pad warning light.

Squeeky brakes


how bad do they squeak, is this after a recent brake job? minor squeak is normal and doesn't affect the performance of the brakes, u can apply a product call "brake quiet" to the back of the disk brake pads, it really works, contact Napa auto parts to buy this.

Drivers side front squeaks really bad especially when u turn the wheel i meen realy bad help plz


Remove the wheel, and inspect the brakes you might find that they are down to metal meaning all the stopping material is worn off or the warning indicator is touching the rotor causing the squeal and telling you its time to replace the brake pads

Hi I put new brake pads on front disc of my 1997 kia sportage added brake fluid put back together , now when i apply the brakes it is making a screeching noise what could i have done wrong Thanks John


did u checked the disc? was is flat and nice? or did it had scratches along the diameter of the disc? the pads need very flat rotors for them to work,
it can be that the pads are too flat and hard because they are brand new and the disc may be deformed...have them checked
hope this helps

Rear Brakes


Brakes can vary in the amount of time that they last. For starters there are many diffrent grades of pads, the cheap pads last me about a month, but the good expensive pads last me 6-8months or so, and I drive really hard. So depending on how drive can determine how long they last. Usually you can replace your rear pads once for every two or three sets of front pads you replace as most of the braking work is done from the front. Pads are made intentionally to squeak when they are running down, so when you hear that squeak get em replaced, but if the rear's aren't squeaking just change the front and do the rears next time.

Good Luck
Hope this help
