2007 Toyota Corolla - Problem with front brake pads making loud noises. Should we be using Metallic or Ceramic brake pads?

The choice in pads will be totally up to you. The ceramic pads offer extended life, with little to no brake dust, where the metallic pads are just the opposite. I would recommend that you use ceramic pads, you will get your money's worth out of them.

What is the best Brake Pad for a European car

What is the best after market brake pad for a European car? Since our shop specializes in imports, we get that question a-lot, and when it comes to European cars, Akebono brake pads are the only brake pad we use, unless of course the customer asks for something else. The Akebono is a little more expensive than some of the other after market Brake Pads, but they are well worth the money. Akebono brake pads are formulated to significantly reduce the black dust found so frequently on European vehicles. Which means less dust on your wheels and less work you have to do to keep them clean. As long as we have been installing the Akebono brake pads on our customers vehicles, we have never had even a single come back. That is why we will always recommend Akebono to all of our cutomers. Akebono brake pads are available for Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, MINI, Porsche, SAAB, Volkswagen, and Volvo

Changed the rear brake pads on nissan x trail 2002 model. Now the brakes klick as there applied?

You can get this problem if you use cheap brake pads that do not come with an anti rattle clip set. I would never recommend using metallic pads on any vehicle, although there are some good ones out there. I would recommend using only a full ceramic pad each and everytime you replace your pads.

Brakes squeling

This could be caused by the brake pads wearing down so far that the metal rivets that hold it together are now rubbing on the rotor. It could also be glazed pads or excess builup of brake dust. I would recommend checking brake pads first. If they are still good clean them, and maybe apply some brake pad goo. They sell that to help stop brake squeal at most auto parts stores.

Replacement brake pads for 06 Lexus GS 300?

go with standard pads.they wear a little faster than ceramics.but they dont wear down brake rotors.ceramics pads are hard and they cause brakes to squeak.also your car is under warranty with lexus dealership.i would use what they said. because you have future brake problem. they will void out warranty for not using their brakes.

Brake pads

I have used Wagner brake pads for several years and have good good luck with them...I think they are called the Thermo Quiets. i tried a house brand and they were noisy and created alot of brake dust.

How to change front break pads A4 2000 and what type/ make of pads do i need

I have the same car 2000 Audi A4. I recommend you "TRW" brake pads. First you must verify yours front brake disc diameter: 280 mm or 288 mm. (On my car y have 288 mm). After that you can buy the brake pads (with wear sensor). For change front brake pads you must raise vehicle, remove wheels, extract the retaining spring of the caliper, and remove the caliper as follow: 1. Do not disconnect the brake hose from the caliper, and do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose! 2. Remove top and bottom caps (on back side of the caliper) for access to guide pins, then unbolt and remove them from the brake carrier. Remove the caliper. 3. Now you must thoroughly clean the brake calipers (free of grease). 4. Remove outer brake pad from brake carrier. 5. Pull inner brake pad out of brake caliper piston. 6. Check up the brake fluid level on the reservor, and emptying if neccessary! 7. Push piston back into brake caliper housing. 8. Install inner brake pad (with expanding spring) in brake caliper piston. (Arrow marked on pad - if exist, must point in direction of brake disc rotation when vehicle is moving forward). 9. Install outer brake pad into brake carrier. 10. Bolt brake caliper housing to brake carrier using two guide pins. Tightening torque is 25 Nm. 11. Install both caps. 12. Insert retaining spring into brake caliper housing. Important: Depress the brake pedal firmly several times while the car is stationary so that the brake pads adjust to their normal operating positions!!! Check brake fluid level and top up if neccessary!!! Please Rate my Response! Thanks!

Emergency brake pad stuck 93 Camry

Its A Rear Tire Id Guess Its Gotta Be A Problem With The Brakes And Not The Brake Pad. I Would Recommend Taking It To A Mechanic If Thats Not An Option Get The Book. Jack Up The Vehicle And Remove The Suspicious Tire. Mark One Spot On The Drum And One Spot On The Center Hub. Then Check The Inside Of The Drum Once Removed And Inspect it Also Check Your Brake Pads. Not Many People Know That Drum Pads Release Outward Instead Of Inward Like Disc Brakes. Hopefully This Will Help You
