2005 toyota corolla squeaky front brakes when braking at 10mph. changed brakes, rotors, controll arm, pad. What else noise is till there?

anti rattle plates are damaged, remove pads clean rear surface apply thin layer of silicon to pad allowing it to dry then reinstall as per std, this will stop the squeak, or replace anti rattles, silicon is cheaper will last the life of pad, but all new pads will have to be treated the in the same manner .

ABS warning light on my toyota corolla 2007

Have your vehicle's computer scanned for the ABS system by your mechanic or dealer. The computer scan will tell you what component or sensor(s) are in need of servicing. You still have normal braking, but the abs function will be disabled until serviced.

I drive a 2005 Toyota Corolla and about 3 months ago I had the brake pads changed and replaced them w/ ceramic. Now, after a few stops, they make a noticable grinding noise when I apply the brakes. Is...

It is never normal for your brakes to "grind". A lil squeaky, not so bad. Grinding, not so good. I would take it back to whoever replaced them and have them checked. Ceramic pads are better pads because the stop you better and last longer than matallic pads, and the also create less dust, but they should not be grinding. It could be a sign of improper installation or a sign of bad or worn rotors. Definately have it checked out.

2007 Toyota Corolla - Problem with front brake pads making loud noises. Should we be using Metallic or Ceramic brake pads?

The choice in pads will be totally up to you. The ceramic pads offer extended life, with little to no brake dust, where the metallic pads are just the opposite. I would recommend that you use ceramic pads, you will get your money's worth out of them.

My 2006 Toyota Corolla brakes squeek on initial backing up out of driveway. WHY?

normal... as a car sits over night brake rotors get a coat of surface rust on them and in some cases the brake pad will adhere to the rotor as well. as u back up the brake will become dettached. as u back up the brake pads rub the surface rust off. and noise gose away. most of the time its 2-5 brake applications before its all gone..

2007 Rav 4- Front Brake pad growl during stops

I had a 2008 rav4 and within the first 10,000 I noticed this problem. Had the pads changed at 12, 22, 30, all free of charge from the dealer. Had the rotors replaced as well twice, the issue came up again & since it was a lease I threatened to sue and I was released from my term fee free. If you are having the same issue post here we need to open a dialogue. I'm sure many people have just paid for repairs without thinking it's an issue on the vehicle. Toyota will deny it until it's a media issue....

30% of a brake pad is still quiet a fair bit, unless you drive and use performance pads.

dealerships do say alot to make money from there customers,

if you stick to speed limits or a little bit over with no harsh braking and down gearing for cornering you will be fine with the 30% left on the pads, get them sorted when you come back though or after a week or so of being back :)
