There is a wooble or dragging sound in front tire what colud it be?


Assuming all lug nuts are tight, there could be several problems causing the wobble/dragging sound.
  • Bad bearing - a bad bearing will grind and vibrate
  • Bad ball joint - a bad ball joint will cause wobbling of the wheel.
This is a potentially serious problem and should be looked at immediately. Without knowing more (improper tire wear, shudder when applying brakes) one of the above is the most likely cause of your problem. You'd do well to have the wheels pulls and examined right away.

Bleeding air out of brake line after changing brake pads,we got no air bubbles but still have a spongy or soft brake peddle


Bleed the longest line first, then progressively shorter lines. Make sure you are using the correct technique in bleeding--be sure the master cylinder is always full, then pump the pedal several times in quick succession and hold pressure while your assistant opens the bleeder valve slowly and lets it drain until your foot is to the floor. Hold your foot until the bleeder is again closed, then repeat the process. Don't reuse the expelled fluid. Hope this helps!

Changed brake pads on my 94 dodge stealth and now i can't get the brakes bled


If you have a soft brake pedal and have to push hard to slow down or pump the brakes to slow down then you probably have air in the brake lines from the last brake pad replacement. The brakes need to be bled with this method: Use 1/8 inch 2 foot long hose from parts store and attach the hose from bleeder valve ball on the brake caliper to a bottle partially filled with brake fluid. The end of the hose in the bottle must be submerged in the fluid in the bottle. With a second person holding the brake pedal to the floor, slowly turn bleeder valve counter clockwise (loosen tiny bit) with wrench and watch for dirty brake fluid to create bubbles in the bottle. When bubbles start, quickly tighten bleeder valve back to tight. Second person should lift foot, pump and then while valve is still tight should push the pedal to the floor again and THEN you again open bleeder valve slowly turning counter clockwise and watch for bubbles. Repeat until no more bubbles can be created in the bottle where the hose is submerged. Move to next caliper and repeat. For a firm brake pedal you will need to repeat this on all four calipers.

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

How to replace brake pads on 2006 oddesey


Raise and secure on stands after breaking loose the lug nuts and parking brake on for front pads.. Remove wheels and spread old pads back to push cylinders back in their bores on calibers to allow for thickness of new pads. Remove the 2 sliding claiber retaining bolts and rotate caliber out of mount and secure with wire, boungie cord, or rope to take weight of caliber brake hose. Remove old pads, install new, and reassemble in reverse order. Lugs on alloy wheel should be torgued to 95 foot lbs. Block front wheels, release parking brake,and do the back ones the same way. After completing, pump brake pedal slowly several times to seat new pads. If you move the MPV without pumping first, you will have no brakes to stop. If brake fluid level is high in master cylinder, you will need to take some out first to make room for returning fluid from caliber pistons being returned to their bores prior to any brake work. Rotors should be replaced or turned if scored or warped to have better clapping of pads to rotor surface.

Bmw 316ti shuddering when applying brakes


This condition indicates warped rotors. You will need to remove the rotors and have them turned on a brake laythe. Since you will have the calipers off, go ahead and replace the pads...its an inexpensive maintennance item. Good Luck, Hope this is helpful.
