Question about 2004 Nissan Quest

04 Quest Brakes

I have 04 Quest w/ 135K miles on it. I've replaced both front rotors w/ EBC (has dimples like golf balls) and slotted. Installed OE brake pads. Everything was done 3 mo ago. Here it is again, when I step on the pedal, pedal becomes "simmy" (same condition when you have warped disks). So, I took both rotors to get them turned last week. Guy said there was "No warp". As I reinstalled them, it is not simmy at this time, but I can feel it. "It's coming back!" What else could go wrong? What else should I check? Bearings? Shocks? Let me know if you have any suggestions.

SOURCE: Brakes Squeak and grind - mostly when cold

This is a head scratcher! My first thought is the rotors. They have an oil film that needs to be degreased before being installed. That may be only part of the prob! My guess is that you hit open road in a short time?? The grinding, jack each wheel and rotate by hand, have your helper gently apply the brakes,[just slightly], this should lead you to the prob. Also check for movement in the wheel bearings. Check that the dust shields are clearing the rotor. If all this fails, remove the wheels and check the inside of the rims for any wear marks. This may be ever so slight. This is the best I can come up with at this time! Frankster016

SOURCE: Rear brakes seemm to be sticking on rear of my

Take your rear calipers off and lubricate the pistons with bearing grease,move them up and down with your fingers till they move more freely,then remove the dirt from the a.b.s sensor if any with w.d 40. Then check to see if your emergency brake is adjusted to free up wheel movement,but not to loose.

SOURCE: Rotors keep warping. Parking brake=caliper sticking?

well first of all just because they can be turned dosent always mean that you should do it, now a days rotors are alot cheaper to just replace them, however whatch where you buy them. in most cases you get what you paid for, Like cheap rotor prices=less life, same for the pads and how hard the driver uses the pedal. and as for the "classic rotor warp" thats not always the case with these newer cars having more movable joints than ever befor, it could be, bad hub bearing,bad lower ball joint...etc....good luck

Not if they have been replaced.I would check for slack in the idler arm and the pitman arm.Also if this wobble happens only when you push on the brakes then its the brakes rotors out of round have them refaced or replaced with new ones.

2005 ford expedition faulty breaks


Try buying top quality rotors, Raybestas, Wagner, or Bendix. Do not buy second line rotors. Buy the top line, OE quality pads. Make sure that when the rotors are installed that you clean out behind where the rotor mounts and the studs. All rust, dirt and debris needs to be removed. When you mount the wheels back on the vehicle, they need to be torched back to ford specifications, follow the specs to the letter. These trucks are VERY picky when it comes to brakes and skipping just one of the steps above will lead to trouble.

Replaced brake pads, extreme squeal resulted


Pads will reproduce sound just like a needle on a phonograph. Hard linings will accentuate this. Have the rotors re-surfaced and finished with a non-directional pattern(I make a quick pass with a D/A sander over surfaces while still on the lathe) Generally this will help.

Rotor life


No, the stuff installed from the factory sometimes is junk. a good aftermarket set of rotors will prolong the life of them.
