It might be that your mechanic didn't grease the brake tips when he installed them...
which means what when the brakes move back and forth when you use them...there is no grease that makes it move smoothly...
let your mechanic take a look at them...
Good Luck!

Absstayson/1998grandprix


Most likely causes:
Front wheel hubs need replaced (do both at one time)
Front rotors warped or worn (change rotors and pads both wheels together)

The noise from the brakes dragging or the wheel bearings humming gets picked up by the abs sensors in the hubs before you can hear them. A few hundred miles later, the problem will get worse enough to hear while driving. Wheel hub replacement best done on a lift with an enormous impact wrench. 23952739-za4bqvjhdrn3arnyccyp5xaz-2-0.jpg

I HAVE A 2003 FORD EXPLOYER EDDIE BAUER 4X4 AND IN THE LEFT FRONT WHEEL THERE IS A GRINDING NOISE. NOW I HAVE REPLACE THE ROTORS AND PADS AND ALSO THE LEFT FRONT CALIPER . THE NOISE IS STILL THERE . WHAT...


If you look at each brake pad you will see a difference between the outer and inner pad. The outer pad has a metal squealer part that sticks away from the pad material. Each squealer is intended to rub the Rotor when the material on the pad is worned off.

I think you may have both outer pads on the left side. Looking at your grooved Rotor, you should be able to see what is sticking out and hitting it. The new Caliper can be sticking, and if it is defective, you should be compensated new pads for the damage it caused and a Rotor.

Now when you decided to replace the Caliper, there must have been a reason. Did you check the front hub bearing when the Rotor was off? A bad bearing will cause a Rotor to run tilted or offset if there is enough play in it. You are going to check the pads, you should check the CV joint and the Hub bearing for roughness.

The idea of a bad brake line is not impossible. The theory on them is that your Brake line has several thousands of pounds of pressure to expand the Caliper piston and only Gravity and suction to take the pressure off. In theory, the brake line is like a one way valve if it is failing.

I would like to know how you made out on this. I had a time with my personal truck brakes. A broken front brake line led to $700 in parts and my own labor. Every brake line on my truck broke on one end, so I know what you mean about added expenses. You just have to keep going until the vehicle is right.

Noise coming from front brakes or wheel ,i change brake pads


Did you have the rotors turned? Did you check for rotor runout? Did you remove all rust from hub face and rotor mounting surface? Did you remove rust from caliper or pad slides? Lube all caliper and pad sliding surfaces? Are the pads application specific? Did you flush and bleed the fluid? Did you torque the wheels properly?

Replacing front rotors and pads 2006 grand cherokee


Why would you put tape on the rotors when doing brakes? Once calipers are removed, rotors come right off. Never saw any seal on rotors and don't know what a seal would do there....Unless it's put there on assembly line to keep rotor from falling off? I wouldn't be concerned.

325 ci brake rotors have been replaced 4 times in 6 years


BMW rotors are not known for lasting very much more than 30-45k miles. When the brakes are inspected, they measure the pads using a special tool threw the outer brake pad. Min spec is 3mm. When the pads are replaced, they measure the thickness of the rotors. The rotor spec is stamped on the rotor. if they are under that spec, they recommend replacing them as well. Next time you bring it in for service, just ask them to measure the rotor thinkness, (its not a huge task, all they have to do is take the wheels off). But more often than not, the rotors wear just as fast as the pads.

FRONT LEFT SIDE BRAKE NOISE & BINDING


It may be caused by Disc Thickness Variation, which occurs when the pads brush the sides of an out of alignment rotor. Also, it could be that the rotors need to be resurfaced due to poor surface finish. I have also seen that when the brakes drag on the pads (DTV) that any pad dust will collect in the low spots and squeal after braking. I would recommend dropping the calipers and thoroughly cleaning the rotors and pads off with warm soapy water and a rag. I don't recommend brake cleaner or silencing sprays because they just add un-needed material to a contact surface and can actually cause noise and prevent full pad contact.

See HERE for troubleshooting information from English Brake Corp.

See HERE for Tech Questions answered from Bendix Corp.

I can also suggest checking the hub face with a roller-tipped dial indicator gauge to confirm that it doesn't have any lateral run-out. Run-out of over .002" would be out of spec.

HOPE THIS HELPS!!! Please don't forget to rate!

Thanks -

Its has to come of from the back. Is a 45 min job in at the dealer, so it is a big job. All the bolts for taking it off are in the back,plus you have to take every thing of thats in the way, tire rod end, etc.
