I have a 2000 chevy malibu. I recently replaced the front brake pads. After this when driving down the road when i hit bumps something in the frontend rattles, i can hear and feel it.. when i hit or ride...


A loose pad could do it.
Check the pad anti-rattle clips again. The pads should be snug in the calipers. Its possible the new pads are not the exact same shape as the old ones.

Brakes rattle


To your direct question - I don't know the Highlander model in detail, but as a general response, if the brakes are noisy when NOT applied, the piston in your new caliper may not be returning properly.

The return spring in disc brakes is actually the rubber fitted around the caliper piston. If this is causing the piston to be wrongly positioned, the brakes will be noisy. Check that the rotor can be turned by hand when the brakes are not applied. Also check that the piston is not retracting from the pads a very long way, which it should not do.

It is worth making very sure the spring clips are fitted correctly. Some can be easily put in the wrong way round.

If the brakes are squealing when applied, that is a different problem. You can get a disc brake anti squeal liquid, which is applied to the back of the pad on assembly to the caliper. Also double check all the anti squeal shims are correctly installed.

At this range, that's all I can think of right now.

Remove the two bolts that hold the rear caliper into the rear brake caliper bracket and lift caliper out. Pay particular attention to how the brake pads and anti-rattle hardware are positioned in the rear brake caliper bracket. Replace the pads and anti-rattle hardware with new parts.

You must compress the brake caliper piston back into the caliper. Do this by using a C-clamp or large pair of slip joint pliers. Make sure you cover the brake caliper to prevent damage to the paint. With the piston fully compress back inside the caliper, carefully reposition caliper in rear caliper bracket without disturbing the brake pads. Install the two bolts that holds the caliper into the bracket.

Depress rear brake pedal slowly until you get a full pedal. Test brakes before you ride the bike. Improper servicing of the brakes can cause serious injury or death. Make sure you did the job right.

Replace rear brake caliper with a better unit that work better


Aftermarket brake systems are your only choice as far as I know. Maybe PMC or some other outfit makes them for your bike. You may even have to replace the rotors as well.

Now, there are different types of brake pads that give different levels of performance. Have you tried any of the sintered metal brake pads? If not, these may do what you want at the cost of more rapid wear of the rotors. There are kits available that will stop the rattling. Check Custom Chrome and V-Twin for anti rattle kits and pads.

How do i change the back brakes on a 2006 tiburon


Disk Brakes - remove two 14mm bolts which mount the caliper to the rear hub assy. Remove the caliper. Remove the phillips screw which holds the rotor to the hub. Machine the rotor and reinstall on the hub & reinstall the phillips screw. Reinstall the caliper and remove one of the caliper hinge pin (sliding pin) 14mm bolts. Flip the caliper out of the way and replace the pads and anti-rattle springs. Recompress the caliper piston all the way back into its cylinder. Flip the caliper back into position and reinstall the 14mm bolts. Of course, you need to purchase the replacement pads and w/anti-rattle springs.
