If it's just a slight squeak and then it goes away then it's probably brake dust. Some aftermarket brake pads will still squeak depending on what pads you got. It's a good idea to go with ceramic pads that have a cut down the center of the pad and the ends are chamfered. This will help disperse the brake dust and minimize any squeaking.

When i first start driving my car, the brakes make a very loud grinding noise. if i press on the brake the hesitate, and push back. this only occurs for a while then the ABS light turns on and the work...


The loud grinding noise may be due to worn pads or brake shoes. I suggest you have all brakes on the vehicle inspected for worn pads, shoes, and possibly worn rotors. The ABS light may indicate uneven brake functioning, so for safty sake, have the brake system checked out.

2000 buick lesabre with abs-low brake pedal after changing all 4 rotors and pads. did not open the hydraulic system


When changing pads and you push the caliper in for the new pad you should open the bleed screws. , then close and re-assemble. press pedal and open bleed screw and let it drip a little . gravity bleed. Did you turn the read caliper piston in and then press it down? The rear piston must be aligned with the pad. Did you pump the parking brake to reset?

YOU NEED TO REPLACE BRAKE PADS WHEN BRAKES GET NOISEY. NOT SUPPOSE TO SPRAY ANY THING ON THE BRAKE PADS OR BRAKE ROTORS.YOU NEED TO CLEAN ROTORS USING BRAKE CLEANER.REMOVE THE LUBRICANT OR WHAT EVER YOU SPRAY ON BRAKE PADS AND BRAKE ROTORS.

Pulsing brake petal with metaL to metal sound when brakes are apply while driving slow


Sounds like brake pads and rotors need to be replaced. Sounds like rotors are warped - explains pulsating. Metal on metal is worn pads.

My 2004 LeSabre shakes bad when I brake at around 50 mph. I changed the front brake pads. How difficult is it to change the front rotors?


Actually, changing the front rotors is not that difficult and they are relatively in-expensive. Anytime you change the pads on the front of your vehicle i would recommend having the rotors resurfaced or replaced. Especially if you are getting a brake pedal pulse when applying the brakes. Here is a step by step guide that will help you in removing your Front rotors.

I just bought my 2004 buick lesabre and I already need new brake pads. I dont know whether I should get med grade pads or (high grade)ceramic pads. If I get the high grade would I special rotors?


best to get the best, econo rotors have less metal in them, and good pads are not that much more expensive, plus the good stuff lasts longer and is safer

You can use your stock rotors with ceramic pads. If you feel that the pads wore down too quickly then they may have been a less than optimal type. Keeping disc brakes clean is key to making them last longer. When there is brake dust and naturally occurring rust built up in the calipers and slides, then they don't release immediately or completely when you let off the brake pedal and they may actually drag your pads.

When braking the front brakes seem to pulsate.


The pads and or rotors are wearing, not a problem unless it becomes worse or makes braking too hard. Next time brakes are changed get new rotors, just as much as resurfacing.
