Were you able to push the piston completely back into the caliper? Did you try turning the rotor before installing the caliper? If the rotor still does not turn, then the wheel bearing could be the problem...Hope this helps.

My 2000 Dodge caravan's brakes are screeching after I changed them. Its only been 2 months since I changed them and its becoming very annoying. Changed the brakes and brake pads.


did you apply the brake pad anti squeal grease it should be applied generously to back of brake pads & also where brake calipers where brake pads will travel as they wear in some cases hard lifetime brake pads usually bmw/other german vehicles will simply squeal unless you install softer &wont last as long but im sure that brake grease will solve your noise issue you should have got a small tube where you purchased the brake pads !

Front brake problems of 1998 dodge avenger


Sounds like the calipers are not fully disengaging. Re-inspect the brakes, make sure everything is clean, then check to make sure the calipers back off when the brake is released.They wont be loose but the rotor should turn freely. Did you replace the rotors or have them turned?

I recently changed my rear brakes on my 2005 trailblazer and had the rotors turned. Now i have a grinding noise when i get up to 15mph and while braking.


Hello sweetascanb3,

A common problem is the emergency brakes drag on the inside of the rotor. The solution is to back off the adjuster. Another possible item is the backing plate they rust and distort and rub against the rotor, bending the backing plate so it doesn't touch the rotor is a fix for that problem.

Brake Vibration


Your front rotor's were no cut right, there wrap so when you brake you feel that out of roundes, take your car back and have them cut the rotor's right, make sure they mic the rotor's to get a mim thickness or rotor will wrap again, if tis thin rotor's will have to be replace.

I have a 2006 F150, that needs a front brakes job, I bough the pads,but they told that I need to buy the hole rotor is that true


You do not need to buy the whole rotor, unless your rotors are shot.
Most brake places will not change brake pads unless you also have your rotors machined or replaced, which makes them about $250 in extra profit... go figure heh?!
anyways, its a good idea to machine your rotors when you replace your pads, they will work better, they will last longer, and you wont feel any movement in the pedal when you are hard braking.
If your rotors are shot, you will need to get those replaced, if you ignore bad rotors, you will eat through your brake pads in a matter of months or even weeks, you wont have half the stopping power you should, if you need to brake really hard it will feel like you are going 40mph on a giant washboard, and you risk your brakes catching and being ripped off the calipers, or ruptoring your brake lines and loosing all your brakes.

With your old brakes, if you didnt feel your pedal bounce up and down really bad when you braked, you should be fine, although it is recomended, if you cant afford it, you cant afford it. But, might not be easy to find a mechanic that will just put the pads on and not make you at least machine them... but you wont find a mechanic at all that will put pads on a rotor that is going to become a risk, so hope your rotors are good enough to work, if you dont want to replace them.

Do i need to change the brake pads and discs???


No you don't, you can have them turn the brake disk/rotor . Turning the brake disk/rotor is when you have the surface of the disk resurfaced by having a brake lath cut the high spots down. The disk are cheap enough now that most will just replace the disk/rotor the same time they replace the brake pads. You can pick up performance drilled or slotted brake disk/rotor for almost the same price as the OEM disk/rotor. Good luck and hope this helps, you can pick up the slotted brake disk/rotor at Auto Zone for a reasonable price and they will have the step by step instruction replacing the disk and if you like to just have the disk/rotor turned, they can do they there too.

Front brakes shudder a fair bit when braking, even lightly. There hasn't been any whining of brake pads or anything. I am going to change the pads, but how do I know if I need to replace the rotors?...


It seems now a days that everyone loves to turn rotors, the only reason to turn a rotor is if it is running out, what this means is that
it is moving back and forth and not in a straight line. What a brake tec is suppose to do is place a dial caliper on the rotor and spin it and see if it is running out,if it is then it must be turned,as long as the rotor is not under the mfg min width. Any vibration,pulsing,shudder,
would tell me that it needs to be turned, just wanted to explain the reason behind it. Any other questions please post back as everyone is more than happy to help.

Problem changing rear rotors on 95 Toyota Avalon


Just remove the rear rotors, bull the straight off, after removing the caliper bracket. It would be a good idea to spray the small brake shoes with brake cleaner. No need to remove anything other than the rotor.
