Question about 2001 Toyota Camry

2001 toyota camry

I got the brakes done on my 2001 toyota camry. The front pads are squeeling bad. When the mechanic looked at the car he said that the pads are hanging off the rotor about an inch. Why is this. Is there a part missing? Thanks for your help.

It seems like the caliber is not completley seated on the rotor or has vibrated loose causeing them to move up.
i would take you vehicle back to who done your brake and have them look at them again and see what they are hanging like that. if you get into an accident because of them would not be good.

While trying to change my pads i noticed my rotors seem loose, also i cant get the brakes to stop grinding, squealing after reassembly.


Shane, rotors may seem loose until wheel is on car and torqued to specification, I recommend you take car in for your brakes to be inspected, estimate and repaired at a good shop. Arrange your appointment time so you can be there and watch how it is done and learn from it. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Likely the wheel bearing is going bad, or your brake is dragging.

2002 toyota camry brake grinds on potholes


unless you can replace pads/rotors, I would say take it to a mechanic.
If this only happens on uneven surfaces, it could also have something to do with front struts or control arm bushings.
Best to have a pro check it out.

Why are the front brakes of a camry 97 rubbing?


because you didnt clean/lubricate the pistons before you replaced the pads they are not able to move back enough to clear the rotors when driving,they should settle down with wear.....( copperslip/anti squeel grease.)

Squeeling noise in one of the wheels on a 2007 Dodge Durango.


If its a lite squeel and goes away when brakes are applied. Have you had front brakes put on recently. If you have and the rotors were not replaced and turned. Alot of mechanics don't do the final cross hatching on the rotors when they are done turning. This will barke in the pads wrong and cause this even with expensive pads. It will cause premature glazing and have a squeel that will drive you crazy.

When gear is put in reverse it makes a squeeling sound but just in that gear.


Check the brake pads, see if the pads are worn down to the "squealers"; these are metal tabs 9on the pads) that indicate that the brake pads are worn to the replacement thickness.
They commonly squeal only in reverse.

To change these pads is simple. You first should wash down the area with brake clean so you don't inhale the dust. Then they are to pins that go through the top of the pads and the caliper. (This Caliper has pistons on bothsides) You them remove the metal clips that hold those two pins. with a needle nose pliers. after removing the clips you will be able to remove the two pins and remove pads. Using the old pads in place you can then push back the piston to make room for the new pads.
