Question about 1995 Ford Escort
I have a '95 Ford Escort LX with a noisy brake problem. The front disc brakes make an awful rubbing squeaking noise every time I brake. It isn't a high pitch squeak or squeal, it's like someone rocking in a rocking chair squeak. The noise is higher in pitch and frequency as I begin to brake, and slows down relative to the car decelerating. I've changed the rotors and the hardware kit on both front brakes. There were some shim tab pieces that came with the hardware, but I couldn't find where to put them. There might be some glazing going on but I'm no expert. Please help me figure this out, it's driving my wife and I crazy.
If they are wearing down, they may squeak, and some brakes have a metallic part that will come in contact with the rotor when the wear gets to a certian point making an awful squeaking sound telling you that mabe you should change 'em soon, eh
