What cause front dis brakes to wear out every year?


Make sure that the calipers are sliding freely on the brackets(check the rears also,because the calipers are tied to the one on the opposite corner of the car in the hydraulic circuit).If everything moves freely,then your best bet is to switch to ceramic pads.(I used to change the pads on my Grand Caravan yearly until I went to ceramics,now I can't remember the last time I had to change them).City driving puts a lot more wear and tear ont the pads,but another cause could be this:a LOT of drivers rest their foot on the brake pedal.Even very light pressure can cause excessive wear,so make sure to drive with ONE FOOT unless you have a manual trans!(a telltale sign of this is abnormally high wear on the brake pedal pad).

2007 freestyle rotor warping


Inspect the wheel hubs for flaws in the rotor mounting surfaces that could prevent rotors from seating properly. Also, check the wheel bearings for slop, roughness or other signs of wear. If the bearing does not rotate smoothly and keep the rotor on center, the rotor will wear unevenly. (Also, pay attention to unusual rumbling sounds when cornering or sudden jerks while braking; these indicate possible wheel bearing problems. The jerking may be caused by the bearing locking up momentarily when the brake changes it load forces.)

Another thing to look at if the problem recurs: take a quick peek at the instrument panel to see if the low traction warning is on. If it is and the road conditions are good, the anti-lock braking system has a false trigger condition. This could be caused by an off-center rotor or a sensor fault. The hard part is identifying which wheel has the problem

I have a Lexus LS 460-2007 with 45000 miles on it, should it need breaks at this time?


you can't estimate brake wear with mileage, dirver style, conditions such as highway, city, hilly country, all have a different effect on brake wear, i have seen some drivers only get 15,000 miles and others over 100,000, best to get them inspected once a year and replaced when 60 to 70% worn

My hand break light stays on while driving. Is this a warning light or is there just faulty lighting?? Thanks


If you have done about 30+k Miles , you may need brake pads.Examine for leaks, Check brake fluid resevoir (yellow cap usually) for fluid level. Do not top up if no leaks are present. It may just be the early brake pad wear indicator telling you it's time to replace the pads. Removal of the front wheels and inspect the brake pad condition for wear. Good luck If pads are worn, topping up fluid will put out the light BUT not solve the wear problem so inspect first.

At what mileage should the rear brakes be replaced? Is it common for the rear brakes to be replaced at less than 22,000 miles on a 2007 Sonata gls?


Most of the stopping power goes to the front of the car. You usually go thru two sets or sometimes three sets of front pads before you need to change the rear brakes. It sounds odd the rear brakes need to be replaced at 22,000. havee the front brakes been replaced before?

Rear brakes on muy 2000


Generaly speaking, if you're getting about 2 years out of a set of pads, then you're doing ok. The grinding you're hearing is the pad material wearing off to the metal backing of the pad due to normal wear. Also make sure you do a caliper service and clean and lube the slide pins, as well as the saddle where the pads sit in the bracket.

Never did beetle brakes, but many others, always used a big 'C' clamp. It will help to open the bleeder on that wheel when you compress the clamp. countrycurt0

Brake warning lining wear


Yes the parking brake uses a small set of brake shoes that act on a drum built into the rear rotor. There is no wear sensors on the parking brakes. There are however wear sensors on the front and rear brake pads. If your brake pad warnig light is on I would have the service brake pads inspected. 82210425
