I have a 2000 chevy malibu. I recently replaced the front brake pads. After this when driving down the road when i hit bumps something in the frontend rattles, i can hear and feel it.. when i hit or ride...


A loose pad could do it.
Check the pad anti-rattle clips again. The pads should be snug in the calipers. Its possible the new pads are not the exact same shape as the old ones.

1989 toyota pickup front disk brake pads replaced, now the front calipers wont clear the new disk brake pads! Any solutions, please?


remove caliper, push disc all way home, put wheel nut on to hold home, retry fitting them the disc may be slightly scued. If no go try diffrent brand of pad I had same prob with a diffrent car last week & diffrent brand pad was 2mm thiner. If can't exchange pads get piece of emery paper on flat surface & sand away top part of pad material in round motions both ways till they fit. :-)

My 2008 nissan armada has a rattle noise coming from the front brake area during driving over uneven road surfaces.


Hi,
Better check the spring and spacer for the disc pad that might have lost or didn't reinstall properly when you replace it with a new pad.
That usually the sound when those small parts are missing.
Hope that helps you out.

Thanks for asking FixYa!

Intermittent grinding noise in right wheel well as breaks are applied. Doesn't seem to be affecting the left wheel well at this time. Also, after coming to a stop, there's a slight ''dragging'' sound also...


If the brakes appear to be working correctly in all other respects, then it's likely to be a noise caused by a wear ridge on the disc circumference. As the pads don't contact this part, it not only fails to wear down like the rest of the disc surface, but also rusts and as rust takes up more volume than steel the ridge actually grows larger.

To cure it, get the pads and discs checked to ensure that they're within specification (discs are a consumable item and typically need changing with every second or third set of pads). If they're well within acceptable limits then you can either grind off the wear ridge (on the inner and outer side of the disc) and also consider grinding a small chamfer onto the outer edge of the pads where they might contact the wear ridge. Ensure that you repeat the work on the opposite side of the car as well, and note that if just one pad or one disc is below limits then all front pads or both discs must be replaced. If the discs are replaced, the pads must be replaced unless they're near perfect and almost totally unworn. If the pad surfaces are uneven then they must either be refaced to be totally flat or discarded and replaced.

A common trick to grind down the disc wear ridge is to jack up the car at the corner you're working on, remove the wheel and to then firmly support the car with an axle stand (vital). Chock the rear wheels and apply the handbrake. Get in the car and start the engine, engage first gear. Because of the way that the differential works, the front wheel which is on the ground will lose all traction and remain immobile and the front hub on the opposite side will turn instead, but as it's in the air it won't move the car. You can then carefully use an old sharpened and heat hardened flat blade screwdriver, chisel or best of all a lathe cutting tool to slowly cut away the ridges. Once done, repeat on the other side. For safety, never attempt this unless there is someone else watching out for you. Also ensure that you have no loose hair, ,jewellery or clothing which can get caught on the wheel hub or the wheel studs.

Car rattle when driving on smooth road noise coming from all 4 corners ford puma when going over bumps etc . totally worse on an uneven surface . any ideas ?


I think you should check brake calipers and brake pads. The suspension is in constant motion and the shock dampening for the body is suppose to isolate the body.

There are compounds like "Brake Quiet" which is a rubberized paste that is to be applied between the pads and caliper. You may need new brake hardware which will tighten the pads and calipers to the car.

Check your heatshields on the exhaust system. Gravel can get sandwiched between them and rattle like crazy. Check them COLD and hit them with your hand and listen for rattles. Sometimes hubcaps can pickup stones, but if you work on the brakes you will be taking the hubcaps off anyway. Good Luck on this repair.

I am guessing it is still under the factory warranty. Take it to the dealership and have them fix it for free.

Nissan Premira 2002, european spec. When replacing brakes pads w/ABS, are there any adjustments required or resetting procedures? My email is address harrisleon53@yahoo.com


The vehicle being worked on was jacked up and supported by sturdy jack - stands. All four wheels were removed to access disc brake assemblies. Tools utilized (1) C clamp for the front caliber to press piston back in it bore and (2) a special tool for the rear to return caliber back in it bore. Replaced pads and all pertinent hardware, torque all fasteners to specification and wheel assemblies. Road tested vehicle and checked for noise and rattles. So thanks for the tip that was given and I wish you and your staff a nice sunday.

Renault Magane Authentique 2001 (Y)- Squeaky brakes and shaky front wheel. The brakes squeak often but not always and sometimes even squeak when brake pedal is released. Seems to squeak less or not at all...


What condition are the front disks in? is there a lip on the disks ? Now what i do when i get problems like this is to change the front pads for a good brand and not the cheapos ,also i get the hacksaw and cut a groove through the pad horizontal to the disk and this often cures the problem as for the rattle then blob of glue on the hubcap and renew the antiroll bar link rod if fitted or the bushes on the arm ,think this model has a link bar and not a bush direct onto the lower track control arm but hey iam a back street cowboy not a dealer (fit new) mechanic on one model only
