Question about 2009 Nissan Armada

1 Answer

I had my rear brakes and rotors replaced at a local shop 2 1/2 months ago. Two weeks ago my rear passenger side tire started to smell like burnt rubber. I brought it to the dealer for a oil change and had them check out the issue with the smell. They told me that I should bring it to the shop that replaced the breaks and rotors because they did something wrong when replacing the breaks. When I went to thisshop, the said theres no way it's something they did because it's the caliper and the caliper is internal. So he's insisting teres nothing that tey could have done to cause this. What do you think is going on and what should I do?

    Question--why were rotors replaced on a veh,
    only 2 years old & on the back..They should last 80,000
    miles on the back

    The shop said they were really bad and so were the back breaks. I thought it was weird that the rear brakes needed it and not the front. I probably got scammed.

The shop that did your brakes should repair/replace the caliper. He HAD to install the pads into the caliper & had to remove the caliper to install new rotor. Hold that shop accountable for the repair. And don't take NO for an answer.

    Why would it take this long for it to start acting up though?

I would take the phone number and address for that garage and throw in the garbage. If they replaced all the rotors 2 times and didn't see a problem with rear brakes or front bearings while they were right there taking things apart to get the rotors off they are either blind or just don't care about there customers or the safety of them. Find another garage to get your car repaired at.

Did you replace the rotor on the driver's side? If the rotor wasn't replaced or turned (to make the surface smooth again), the rotor may have chewed up the new brake pad.

The other possibility is that the caliper is not centering itself over the rotor, causing one side (outside) to do most of the braking. The caliper assembly has to be able to 'float' in order to keep itself centered. Check the guides that the caliper is mounted in for damage or corrosion that would keep the caliper from moving in/out.

When i drive forward, my rear, passenger tire makes a rubbing noise. I had all my brakes and rotors replaced about a month ago.


If it is really dragging, then there will be a lot more heat then at the other wheels. Careful, though, the rotor can be hot enough to burn you if there really is drag. The rears also have the parking brake cable as well as hydraulics. So have someone pull the parking brake lever on and off, while you watch underneath to see if the cable is releasing correctly. There could be a sticking calipher that may need to be freed up. Warranty should cover it.

200SX SE Nissan 1996, making weird noise on passenger side


a little tip for you...it sounds like the pads are squealing, try taking the pads out and applying a very thin film of high temperature grease on the rear of the pads (NOT TO THE FRICTION SIDE), this may seem a bit of an odd thing to do, this tip was passed down to me by an old mechanic friend of mine years ago,and it works every time for me.
