Hi there!

Its usually happens when the brake pad are tight on the disk which makes the them touching all the time and the pads are supposed to touch the disk only when your push the brakes.

Brakes grabbing


Possibly the material of the brake pads, installed incorrect or just need to be replaced. Also is possible that the rotors need to be turned/resurfaced.

How do I replace the front brake pads on my 2009 Mazda 6 2 litre? Can I do it myself?


Step 1 Park the Mazda 6 on a flat surface. Put the emergency brake on and put wedges behind the wheels to prevent the vehicle from rolling. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Using a syringe, turkey baster or similar tool, drain two thirds of the brake fluid from the master cylinder. Remove the wheel.
  • Step 2 Remove the bolts attached to the brake pipe. Remove the bolt cap attached to the caliper top. Swing the caliper, pivoting it downwards. Suspend the caliper from the frame using mechanics wire. Remove the M-springs, the pads and the shims.
  • Step 3 Press the caliper pistons back into the cylinders. Install the brake pads. Lubricate the exterior of the pads using anti-squeal. Install the shims. Install the M-Springs. Reinstall the caliper. Using a torque wrench torque the bolt to 36 to 39-ft. lbs. Install the cap.
  • Step 4 Reinstall the wheels. Add brake fluid to the master cylinder. Bleed the brakes. Reconnect the negative battery cable to the battery. Start the engine and pump the brakes 3 to 4 times to seat the brake pads. Test drive the Mazda 6 at slow to moderate speeds to ensure that the maintenance was performed correctly.I hope this helps you and please have a merry xmas

    The brakes on my 1997 Chevy S-10 grab when the engine is cold. Once I've driven a short while and applied the brakes a few times, they behave as normal. Basically the first time you step on the brake, the...


    it could be the brake pads have absorbed moisture and on the first apply they grab. I would replace the pads with a better quality and see what happens. The noise your hear under the hood is the ABS pump working because the wheels are locking up .

    My 1994 Nissan pickup brakes shudder at low speed


    Inspect the brake rotors for grooving and score marks and also look to see if there are any heat cracks, if there is grooving or very little brake pad material remaining replace the brake pads and also two new rotors, it is also possible that it is just a frozen or stuck brake caliper, this would be indicated by an uneven rotor one that has more metal or meat on one side that the other also uneven brake pads indicates an uneven brake caliper application

    I'm trying to replace my front pads there are 2


    Replace left and right brake pads at the same time. Do not replace brake pads for one side of the vehicle only.
    1. Raise and support front of vehicle.
    2. Remove tire and wheel assemblies.
    3. Remove pad pins and springs.
    4. Remove brake pads, then shims.
    5. Reverse procedure to install. When installing new brake pads, push caliper piston inward using piston compressor No. 490221600C or equivalent.

    1994 Toyota pickup front brakes don't release


    Well I don't think you'll need to buy parts,it sounds like there may be sludge built up between the master cylinder and the proportional valve to the front brakes.Pull the valve off(follow the line off the master cylinder and you'll find the valve)clean it and then flush/bleed the master cylinder before you reinstall,Then flush/bleed the rest of the system.There's a relly good chance that may be all you need to do,but you may need to pull the calipers and clean them also.Comment back if you need more help,Good Luck(To)Yotaguy

    1994 Pick up. Came into the shop needing brakes


    Yes it could be your wheel bearings but it also could be the pins that hold your brake pads in. The pins need to be well lubercated to allow the pads to move freely on them. the wheel bearing might be miss adjusted or have some thing in them causing the noise. i would first check the caliper make sure the pads are not draging on the rotor at all. make sure the pads do not have rocks or dirt stuck in them. The problem is most likely to be with your brakes or even your dust cover for your front rotors. make sure the dust cover is not bent where it is touching the rotors.
