Brake have to come apart every year, to clean
off rust,inspect pads and rotors and most importantly
lube the places the pads slide

I have no idea why you would even mention the
rear brakes 126,000 k (75,600) That is purely abuse

Neglect sounds like your only Issue

Rotors never get hot enough to warp

When driving a 1990 300E, the front wheels shake when applying the brakes, Brake pads have at least 70% remaining. Alignment was good when last checked.


Most likely problem is brake rotors warped. If you replaced pads without machining rotors, or if rotors are getting worn and close to minimum thickness, warping is more likely. If you replace the rotors, replace the pads at the same time. The pads that are on the car now are wearing unevenly due to the warped rotors and can cause new problems for the new ones.

Uneven brake pad wear


usually if you hit a puddle of water, it will warp your rotor. you can take your rotors to a mechanic that has a rotor turning machine, and they can smooth them back to normal. thats probably why you are having uneven wear on your brake pads.

I recently put new front brake pads and had rotors turned on the front end of my 2003 tundra sr5,after a month of driving i'm getting the pulsation when braking back which is why i made this repai


HI if you have pulsation after a month you must replace the rotors
they are too thin and the heat is warping them faster then before you
had them turned
note you replace brake pads and rotors

good luck

When i press my brakes my wheel shakes, what is this problem?


The brake rotors are warped. This is a common occurrence. It can be caused by numerous things; excessive rotor wear (too thin), uneven brake pad wear, sticky brake calipers, riding the brake pedal causing excessive heat buildup in the rotors, and over-torque of lug nuts are just a few causes. Having the rotors checked and re-machined may help, but normally they require replacement. If you replace rotors, it is advisable to replace the brake pads at the same time to avoid a poor wear pattern.

Need to repace front brakes and rotors, the car only has 31000 miles on it!!


The brake pads are well within a good long life. Brake wear life depends on a number of factors, the most significant is the driver. Most people feel that they are easy on brakes and that is usually not true...

Rotors are damaged by: normal wear; waiting too long for pads and damage from metal to metal contact; and HEAT. Heat damages rotors and causes them to warp. Cars now days have less material on the rotors and therefore they have shorter life.

On some vehicles it is only slightly more to replace rotors, versus resurfacing them. A resurfaced rotor has less material, so warping happens faster.....Some shops just routinely replace rotors, rather than resurface for just this reason.

Other shops routinely replace calipers, which can be agrued either way, but a caliper that hangs slightly will cause rotor warp. My preference is to replace calipers when they need it, by leaking or binding....

My 1998 ford escort brake peddle started pulsing and then a noise. Checked fluid, not down any fluid, and no leeks, just feels like I can not stop well., No ABS lite til yesterday, then it came on after...


Normally a "pulsing" brake pedal means that that you have a warped brake rotor or the brake caliper is lose. I would start by taking the front wheel off and inspecting the brake pads and the rotor. If the brake pads are worn down bad replace them. Pay special attention to the brake rotors also as if the are grooved very bad, they should also be replaced.

2001 olds alero, When I step on the breaks it


Did you also replace the brake pads? If not, the wear from the warped rotors most likely caused uneven wear on the pads (not visible by looking at them, but apparent when you apply the brakes). This is probably causing it feel like the rotors are still warped. I don't believe your anti-lock brakes have anything to do with this.

Brakes


It sounds like the rotor (brake disk) is warped. That would cause the pads to wear much more quickly because the disk "wobbles".
The warped disk can also cause the noise, depending on how bad the warp is.
When most shops change pads, they usually recommend that you "turn" the rotors, it is a way of truing the disk.
