Do it yourself

Have you never paid $695 for brake
work before?

Why are you at a dealer?

What about a repair shop down the street

That would be about $300 for the same work

That is a joke, just my opinion but it is not rocket science-I have a neighbor friend with a 2010 Jag XF and I replaced his pads, unless the rotors are gold, that is outrageous-shop around

New brake rotors overheat


Hi Steve. As you said you did replace the rotors and pads. Did you have problem before replacing the rotors or just to renew was? The reason I am asking is just to see whether the problem was there and before. Now, if you had the same problem before renewing and after renew you still have the problem,just go back on your car, jag it up putting it on stands,turn the wheels an see which one is tight on turning. If is just one, open the bleeder to release the pressured fluid and turn the wheel,if is turning free,just get in the car and apply brakes
after turn the wheel and if you do have stiffness,you have a faulty brake hose inside the flow hole. Just renew the faulty brake hose. If you do not face any hose failure, renew the brakes Master cylinder.
Good Luck.

With just over 50,000 miles on my 2008 Jeep Wrangler (mostly all highway) Both of my rear pads and rotors need to be replaced.. Does anyone know if this is normal? My front pads and rotors are...


The front brakes are good at 30000 mile intervals ,because they do most of the stopping power. 50 to 60000 miles is about normal on the rear brakes. The most common ailment with rear brakes is the emergency brake not releasing. The cables for the emergency brake run under the jeep ,along the frame and rust keeps them from releasing

I have a Hummer H3. I hear Noise from wheels while turning & doesn't stop. Also I hear a grinding noise when I hit the brakes. Dealer had to resurface rotors. Problem started at 15000 miles. Took it...


Ranjit,

I have the same problem with my 2008 Hummer H3. I had the front and rear rotors resurfaced. I am now thinking of getting the rotors replaced with bigger more durable rotors. Solution about the sticking brake caliper sounds about right if you hear a grinding noise as you drive without even touching the brake pedal.

New brakes needed on 2005 TSX with 23K miles


Thats low mileage for an 05...congrats. It is also way way low to be needing rear brakes!!!, The front brakes ALWAYS need replacement before the rear, unless you have a malfunction...or have been driving with the emergency brake on, (the emergency brake just works on the rear). Also, unless the brakes have been metal on metal, no way you should need new rear rotors with that mileage...I realize you trust your dealer, but, I'd get a 2nd opinion. As for the driving, sure, driving habits have a bearing on brake wear, and yes, you have probably done alot of stop and start, but probably at low speeds also. At any rate, you should not be replacing rear pads and certainly not rotors with 23K...unless there is another problem..Hope this helps!

Excessive wear on 1997 s type jags rear brakes


Unfortunatly this is normal, nothing can be done about it. Get pads checked every 15,000 miles to save discs.

Had front brake pads and rotors replaced on my 2007 Saturn Vue after ony 19,000 miles and I now get a grinding sound and feel when I come to a slow stop. I have taken the car back two times for look over...


Have a different mechanic pull the calipers and inspect the pads, chances are you have a stuck piston and the pad has worn out. At the same time also check the Rotors for rough surfaces. You may have had excessive heat and caused the steel to harden up in places and this area won't wear at the same rate.

Chrysler Voyager 2001 rear brake system


Take it back to the dealer who fixed it.
Driving with the rear brakes locked may have warped the rotors. Blue color is from excessive heat. Sounds like a preportioning valve in the brake system is faulty.
The dealer didn't do his job very well. Find another dealer.

I have a 2008 Honda LXP purchased Novemebr 2008. It has 21000 miles on the clock. From and since 15,000 miles I heard a grinding sound when I applied the brakes after the car was stationary for over 10...


from my experience its sounds like ur front rotors may need resurfaceing...if ur doing that...may as well replace the brakes on the front as well...sometimes glazed front brake pads may make a sound but never heard of it as a grind, usually its a squeal...have ur dealer check ur rotors for hot spots in which u would need them replaced if they are overheated..also check the front pads for cracked brake pad material

Brakes and rotars


sounds like he's trying to get more money out of you. the only reasons you would need to replace your brake rotors/disks would be if they have worn below the recommended guidlines for your vehical which for that model as they are vented disks would be 28mm
