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. :-)

Fiesta (Unwanted Noises)


Go to the AboutAutomobile.com site and look up your Year of Ford Fiesta. Any Recalls and Consumer complaints would be listed and useful to you.

I suggest the grinding noise may be an Electric motor like your front Radiator fan motor. It would fit with the symptoms of a constant grinding noise unaffected by engine RPM or Vehicle speed. If you have a later model Fiesta, some are starting to be equipped with Electric steering motors which also would remain in constant motion independent of vehicle speed.

The clunking can be a second problem. Some early Fiesta's seemed to eat the front struts. Some of the Ford models also used a Bearing ring sandwiched at the top of the strut. This assembly was meant to replace the upper ball joint. Contact a good Autoparts store about exactly what parts your strut assemblies have. Some of the autoparts stores have tool loaner programs to help you install the new parts.

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.

Ford fiesta diesel endura turn's over & try's


Normally, only 2 things stop a diesel from firing:
1. no fuel
2. not enough compression

No fuel can be caused by (obviously no fuel) or a failed fuel pump. To test, have someone turn the engine over and then sniff at the exhaust - does it smell of unburned diesel? (If you've run out of diesel recently, you may have an airlock in the system, this needs bleeding out.)

Not enough compression needs specialised equipment to test - that's a garage job.

Front End Rattle


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