SOURCE: I replaced the front brake

The bolts that you tightened has nothing to do with the rattle. In reality, the caliper slides along these bolts as the pads wear. Usually, the pads hold enough pressure against the rotor even when the brakes are not applied to prevent rattling. The rear pad is held in place by a plate with a bolt that screws into the rear pad. The pad on the outside has a flat spring that holds it into the cavity in the piston to prevent it from rattling. The caliper has o-rings inside the bores where the bolts go through to keep it tight on the two bolts you put in. Grab the caliper and try to shake it. If you can shake it, these o-rings are most likely gone. Refer to this drawing to see what I'm talking about.

WHY IS 93 MY FATBOY REAR BRAKE STICKING AFTER ABOUT FIVE MILES OF RIDING


Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1. Brake disc badly worn or warped.
2. Insufficient brake pedal freeplay.
3. Brake caliper pistons/bore contaminated or damaged.
4. Master cylinder piston not returning all the way.
5. Brake line inner liner collasped
6. Dot 3 used in a Dot 5 system
Good luck

How much should it cost to replace calipers and pads on a 2005 6cyl 2wd 4 Runner?


If they order the parts from rockauto its about $630-700 in parts. $50-60 front and rear brake pads, $ 100 -115 2 better front rotors, $100 for better rear rotors, $90 for each rear caliper, 100-125 per front caliper, $10 for each rubber brake line. (The caliper prices include a core fee that you would get back $30-40 per caliper returning the old caliper, but you pay the shipping fees). The ballpark prices also include the additional shipping costs. Labor should be around 2-2.5hrs. So depending on the shop it would be $50-60/hr so total cost $100-150 for the labor. So total would be somewhere around $730-850. You can just have the one caliper replaced, you do not need to replace them all. I would get new rotors on whichever axle (front or rear) the stuck caliper is on and not get the rotors cut, because the faulty caliper could have warped the rotor. Another possibility is that it could just need a new rubber brake line. When my calipers locked on one of my classic trucks, I just replaced the old rubber line and it was good to go. -Fawkes

2005 Chevy Suburban I can't seem to keep brake rotors on front from warping. As soon as we put on new rotors within 100 miles they are warped again. I can't find anyone that knows why. I put on the best...


The hub faces sound like the need to be machined or replaced (whatever is cheaper). The caliper might be seized and causing a huge drag on one side, but it sounds more like the hub/carrier face needs attention.

Hope this helps, please vote for me if you agree.

Seems to be a front chattering when baking


Warped disc, or loose brake caliper bolts, or brake pads without retaining springs or simply the pads have worn right down and you are receiving the bump warning on the disc. Remove the front wheel(s) and inspect pads and then check brake caliper retaining bolts. Turn the wheel so that you have an unhindered view of the rear of the brake caliper assembly. Rotate the hub and as you do so watch what happens to the disc rotor between the pads. If the disc rotor is seen to deviate from what should be a straight spin then it is warped and will need to be changed. Check the other wheel to be sure and to act as a reference to normal function...it is rare for both disc rotors to warp at the same time. If one disc rotor is at fault the general rule is to replace the other at the same time.

I replaced the pads on my 2005 Honda Accord. I had


ABS only senses if the wheel is spinning or not.
"Thumping sound" sounds like a bad problem. I've not had thumping sound from my front brakes ever.
I don't know how a caliper could cause thumping.
Is everything installed correctly and do the brakes stop the car??

2005 gmc 2500 hd needs front rotors at 23,000 miles cause there're rusted out. How do you change?


Its not uncommon for rust to accumulate on rotors. Normally rotors are good for 50,000 miles or more. If they're not warped or severly grooved, the rust won't hurts them.

Right front wheel gets hot.


It sounds like a classic "hot brake", your caliper is probably stuck depressed on the rotor. You will probably need to replace the caliper and both front rotors as the one that is getting hot is probably warped. They are replaced in pairs. Get the rotors/caliper and do it yourself. It really is a simple task with minimal tools/mechanical expertise. Get a Hanyes repair manual and it will be a breeze and save you $1K.
