Did you relplace the rotors? Sometimes new pads on an old rotor can produce this noise because the pads are new and not worn as a pad to the old rotors like the old ones.

I have a grinding noise and the petal shakes when I press on my brakes, after driving a couple of miles the abs light goes on. I replaced pads, rotors, master cylinder, brake booster, shocks, struts.


hi,

one of the replacement parts may have been faulty or may not have been put on right. take it back to where it was serviced or if you cant do that start with new rotors and pads in the front only, drive it and see if problem persists, if problem persists put new shoes on the back

Grinding noise in driver side front wheel.


You either have a bad wheel bearing, or a bad brake pad. Does it do this only when you apply the brakes, or making turns, or is it continues. If its only while using the brakes, most likely the brake pads are worn. If it only does this while making turns, may be wheel bearing. Remove the front driver wheel and inspect the brake pad liners. check the thickness of the pads, make sure the pads are not metal to metal. to check the wheel bearing, while wheel is still on the car, put the front of car on jack stands, while wheel is off the ground spin the wheel and listen for any noise that sounds like the sound it was making while driving. If it makes this noise, you then can take a steel tube about 3 to 5 feet long, put it under the wheel and lift up and down on the wheel, and notice if it has any movement or play as you lift it up and down, if it moves, then likely its the wheel bearing.

The piston from the caliber will keep the inner and outer pads close to the rotor. If outer pads is loose, need to reassemble to find out if it didn't get installed right.

Severe squeaking noise coming from the undercarraige....shocks? bushings?


Both the shocks and bushings can cause the squeaking noise. It is very common in those vehicles, and the best bet for figuring out which one is this: put some brake fluid in a squirt bottle, and put a small amount(don't get overzealous with it, as it will remove paint) on all the rubber bushings, and drive it around a little to get it worked into the joints. Brake fluid is designed to work as a lubricant in brakes without degrading the rubber parts, so it is excellent in lubricating the rubber suspension parts. If your squeaking remains, then it is probably the shock. This diagnosis, of course depends on if the squeak is that really obnoxious rubber squeak noise that comes when you push down on the front end and make the suspension travel. If the squeak is the high-pitched one that is constant when driving, and doesn't change except with speed, then it is your brakes telling you that they need new pads.

Where do you put the brake fluid on this car? Because, my car is making a grinding sound when I put my foot on the brake.


The grinding noise probably means you need to put new brakes on. If you fill the brake fluid reservoir, and then change the brakes, the new fluid will run out anyways, because the new brakes will have to be put in, and the fluid will run out.

Sueaky front wheel


It could be a number of things. First check your brakes for any rocks or excessive dirt. Second, check to make sure you are not in need of new brake pads. Brake pads are equipped with a tab that starts making noise when its time to replace your brakes. Third, have the bearing checked. Once the bearing get excessively worn they will start making a squeaky sound. Also have the shocks checked. the bushing worn out in shocks can also cause the noise. The best bet is to have your local mechanic inspect your front end for any wear. Once he does this, he can compile a list of parts that need replaced. Then you can replace or fix it yourself.
