Hi stephen,

are you using a v-brake or a disk brake?
if a disk brake, is it mechanical or hydrolic?
what is the brand and model of your brakesets?

most mechanical's fault is the magnet on the brake pads mount, when these wear off, or is dirty, it will not have anough power to pull the pads when used.

most hydro's fault is on the piston, once the brake is engaged and the piston gets stuck, you end us on the stuck brake. to have this resolved, clean the assembly, replace components if needed. you may first bleed the brakes and leave it engaged overnight. if the piston gets stuck again, check for fragments on the set.

hope this helps.

regards,

voodoo

2002 toytota camry left front makes noise turning right


This is usually a bad bearing. The tire is tilting to one side and causing uneven wear. The shimmy is because of the slack in the bearing and the contact the front rotor is having with the brake pad. Every time the low side comes around the rotor will hit the brake pad and grab it.

You will need bearings and brake work.

I HAVE A 2003 FORD EXPLOYER EDDIE BAUER 4X4 AND IN THE LEFT FRONT WHEEL THERE IS A GRINDING NOISE. NOW I HAVE REPLACE THE ROTORS AND PADS AND ALSO THE LEFT FRONT CALIPER . THE NOISE IS STILL THERE . WHAT...


If you look at each brake pad you will see a difference between the outer and inner pad. The outer pad has a metal squealer part that sticks away from the pad material. Each squealer is intended to rub the Rotor when the material on the pad is worned off.

I think you may have both outer pads on the left side. Looking at your grooved Rotor, you should be able to see what is sticking out and hitting it. The new Caliper can be sticking, and if it is defective, you should be compensated new pads for the damage it caused and a Rotor.

Now when you decided to replace the Caliper, there must have been a reason. Did you check the front hub bearing when the Rotor was off? A bad bearing will cause a Rotor to run tilted or offset if there is enough play in it. You are going to check the pads, you should check the CV joint and the Hub bearing for roughness.

The idea of a bad brake line is not impossible. The theory on them is that your Brake line has several thousands of pounds of pressure to expand the Caliper piston and only Gravity and suction to take the pressure off. In theory, the brake line is like a one way valve if it is failing.

I would like to know how you made out on this. I had a time with my personal truck brakes. A broken front brake line led to $700 in parts and my own labor. Every brake line on my truck broke on one end, so I know what you mean about added expenses. You just have to keep going until the vehicle is right.

How do you change front brake pads on an Audi A6 2006


How to change front brake pads & rotors (brake disc) on 2006 Audi A6:

Atention!!!
Don't disconnect any brake line from caliper!
Don't disconnect any ABS 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. Remove brake carrier from wheel bearing housing (two ribbed bolts). 125 Nm
7. Remove brake disc from wheel hub.
8. Install brake carrier on wheel bearing housing. Tightening torque for two ribbed bolts = 125 Nm.
9. Check up the brake fluid level on the reservor, and emptying if neccessary!
10. Push piston back into brake caliper housing.
11. 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).
12. Install outer brake pad into brake carrier.
13. Bolt brake caliper housing to brake carrier using two guide pins. Tightening torque is 25 Nm.
14. Install both caps.
15. 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!!!

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove 2/3 of the brake fluid from the master cylinder reservoir using a clean syringe or equivalent. Install the reservoir cap.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle with jackstands.
  4. Mark the relationship of the wheel to the hub and bearing assembly.
  5. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
  6. Remove the caliper, as outlined later, and suspend from the strut with a wire hook or suitable piece of wire. Do NOT disconnect the brake hose or allow the caliper to hang from the brake line!

Remove the outboard shoe and lining (pad) by using a prytool to disengage the buttons on the shoe from the holes in the caliper housing.

Grinding sound front wheel just replaced brakes last week need diagram for bearing parts


Suspect that a shim or spring/spacer on the brake pad is loose and scraping the rotor. Some shops do not check for proper pad installation...
Test to confirm that it is NOT a bearing, wet with a water hose - the entire rotor and brake assemble and drive for a minute or so. If sound is not present, it is NOT a bearing... but is a piece of the brake pad assemble rubbing inside or on the rotor.

Front wheel bearings


THe tire size is very important.
Originally ford aspire had 155 70 r 13.
It is impossible to find the same size in USA.
If you put a bigger tire...then you brake the wheel bearing.
My 2 cents
