How to fix rotors on 95 mercury grand marquis

Due to the great coasting ability of the MGM cars, rotors seem to over heat from too much use on long downhill driving conditions.

Removing them is done in concurrence with a new brake job.

These should never be reground, as they are too thin afterwards and will warp again quickly. Buy quality new replacements with full lifetime warranty

When applying the brakes, the whole car shimmys. replaced rear rotors , turned front rotors , and replaced all the pads

I think you should get the Tierod ends checked. When you get a Front-end alignment, the mechanic will check them. Although you turned the front Rotors, when you start Braking the front tires can wander differently than when they freewheel.

Sometimes you can get a rust problem on the Rotors that were just made shiny. Moisture on the pads imprints a rust blotch on the Rotor and they grab at the rust until the rust wears down. Then they are ok.

When the rear Rotors were replaced check your bill and see if the Emergency brake shoes were changed. The E brakes should have been adjusted when the Rotors were replaced. The Shimmy you describe can also be the ABS working. The ABS is a pulsating Brake action.

Get your front-end checked first, then as the mechanic road tests it when the Alignment is complete, he can judge the brakes.,

Front brakes grinding new rotors and pads? Are there discs in rear?

Have a mechanic visually check the front brakes and rotors.

As far as the rear, pull the tires and look to see if there are rotors or drums on the rear axle.

2002 pontiac Grand Am, the wheels keep locking up while

Not likely any bearings...
Most likely the brake pads are worn down to the metal rivets that hold the braking material to the shoes (or pads).

The rivets have made a "rut or ridge" in the brake rotor or the brake drum.

If the sound is in the back, then the brake shoes must be replaced and at least one drum has to be replaced.

If the sound is in the front, then the brake pads must be replaced and at least one rotor has to be replaced. The front rotors can be viewed easily with a flashlight, shining through the wheel.

The read drums may be very difficult to remove; patience.... and care...

Rumbul nnoise in front when brakes are appled

The brake pad is worn down to the rivet that holds the pad to the base.
The metal rivets are in contact with the metal brake rotor.
Replace both front brake pads and at least one rotor.
You should be able to see both front rotors w/o removing the wheels.
The rotor with rings like Saturn (the planet) is the one to replace.

Replace soon before the other rotor meets the same fate.

Hope this helps!

I have a 2003 mercury marquis. Both rear hubs

If you have the caliper and retaining rings off the park brake must be holding it. This vehicle has small parking brake shoes that apply to the inside of rotor hat. Try backing off the adjustment and tap the sides of the hat to free them up.
