I have a 2008 Suzuki XL7 and the rear brake lights stopped working, but the third light on the hatch still works. We have replaced the bulbs and checked the fuse and all are good.

The 3rd brake light and the tow side lights are on different fuses, have you verified that they are both good. The other part that can cause this is the multifunction switch (AKA turn signal switch).

Rotor removal on xl7

Front disc rotors? (not rear brake top hat rotor)
are you asking for all steps in the FSM. for this?
can I assume you've done other cars? or is this a first time ever thing.
wheel off, caliper off. hanging there with coat hanger. or tie wrap.
there before you, is a rotor mounted to a hub.
on mine there are 2 , M8 (8mm) holes there, threaded
in the FSM it shows that you put 2 bolts there and spin them down
and use the to force the rotor off the bearing hub.
the drums on Suz. do same deal.
read the day pass.? for 4 bucks.????

here is the drum , getting 8mm action. the rotors work the same way and for the same reason.

here is a google search for GV rotors
see the extra holes here.

if you need caliper help (remove) ask or wheel or >???

Buy the FSM .

My 2005 suzuki grand vitara XL7 brakes squeal everytime i come home and pull up slowly. We have had them checked and the mechanic said they are fine just had alot of dirt in them that could be causing

Rusty disc rotors can sometimes cause this issue, dirt as well, but often times it can be caused by riding your brakes, the braking friction material becomes hard if heated enough, resulting in a high pitched squeek or squeal as you pull up, this doesn't effect the normal operation of the brakes, and in the cases of "high performance" brake replacements that use harsher friction materials, is part of normal operation.

I just spent $500 replacing rear rotors and rear brakes on a 2009 Suzuki SX4. This vehicle has 39,000km. Is there a problem with suzuki rotors? 39,000km seems a little too ealy for me to need new rotors....

120,000 K would be about time for new rotors, if they
were machined once along the way

I have no idea about recalls or problems,so maybe I
shouldn't respond at all

My personal opinion & I do not mean to be hurtful in any
way,is that you can not just drive a vehicle & never
take it apart,even a brand new

All brakes have to come apart once a year to remove rust
& clean,inspect & lube things
Brake Pads & Calipers simply won't slide or release 4 months
after any brake work or at least very well

I don't see any indication that the pros do that kind of work,
or ever have & certainly never educate you on any subject

I am saying your brakes were dragging & shouldn't have been
& you parking brake need to release properly

You can spend $400.00 just for quality parts at repair shop
cost, with no problem
15 years ago you had a hard time spending $200.00 to do
all 4 wheels

I have a suzuki xl7 2002 and the gear shift is locked in the park position and will not move, what can i do? ive tried the release under the shifter but it still locks back in park when i park it.

you may have lost power to/or have a bad shift interlock solenoid. the solenoid is what releases the gear shift when the brake pedal is applied. you may want to check the brake light switch to make sure it is working correctly.

Rubbing sound after brakeing if i push hard on brake the sound stops


The sound comes from a device installed on the brake pads to make you aware that the pads are worn and need replacement ASAP. If you ignore this warning, damage to the brake rotors is next.

I have a 2002 suzuki xl7 and when you press the brake pedal it blows the fuse, cruise control and horn are on the same fuse, when you blow the horn the fuxe does not blow but as soon as you push the brake...

It will be the brake switch that the pedal operates. It may be that the same switch is used to de-activate the cruise control when on. And it's on the same circuit as the horn, so when you have no horn, you know you've got no brake lights. Go to you Dealer and get a new switch - they have been modified a long time ago.
