The pulse is due to thickness variation of the rotors,have to have them machined to even 'em back up.Getting hard to find a shop that will do that,because replacement rotors are so cheap,but it's better to get 'em machined .They will stay true longer

2005 Chevy impala brake pedal pulsation with brand new rotors installed


Is your ABS working properly? Under heavy braking the ABS should engage and 'pulse' the brakes on/off. It is normal to feel the brake petal flutter or pulse under your foot.

Under light braking there should be no pulsing as the ABS does not engage and you have changed the rotors and pads.

Rear rotor will not come off kia sorento 07


You only have two possiblities

The lip on both sides of the rotor that
the pads are hung on & rust from never
removing all rust from hub & using anti-seize

You have to take apart brakes once a year to
get rid of rust, even if no other attention is needed

If the pads are out-- hit the rotor with 2x4 to break the rust

I can't remove the rotors from my 2005 kia sorento. I removed brake stuff. There are 2 phillups head screws on rotor but can't get them out. do they need to be removed? If so how.


Changing the brake pads can be done without removing the calipers. However to take off the rotor, the calipers needs to be out. The 2 Phillips screws are to hold it in the place, but to access the rotor, it has to be through the calipers. Good luck.

I just had the front brake pads replaced and the mechanic said that the rear pads were fine, but now they are making the shushing sound, even when I am driving and not braking. What should I do?


first port of call is to return to the guy who said all was ok on the rear brakes of a sorento there are brake pads for your service/foot brake, but the handbrake works on a sepperate system. there are brake shoes within the rear brake discs which are solely for the parking brake... have these been overtightened ar just full of dust, my advice is to take it back, if no joy then try someone who knows about this system
any advice i can help with then ask.
regards

2004 kia sorento cannot get rear brake rotor off. have removed screws and it is loose but wont come off.


make sure parking brake is off
take off caliper
pemove rotor
if the park brake shoes inside rotor are tight then you have to loosen the adjuster to remove
theres a hole in the rotor rotate it up and look through hole until you see the adjuster wheel loosen by rotating adjuster with flat blade screw driver

I am replacing the brake pads on my Kia 2007 Sedona; front and back is neeeded or just front? Took it to Kia dealer and mechanic showed me pads where very thin and needed replacement; all for $400! Heck...


If your rotors are good and fairly smooth, then a decent ceramic pad will work well. Just be aware that ceramic pads will require a slightly greater paddle pressure. They will last longer, dust up a bit less and will perform MUCH greater in stop and go traffic...

I suspect that 25 dollars per axle is a typical cost for good quality disc brake pads.
