New Brake Time

Well, first off my brake pads are way overdue for a replacement. This is my first car so I'm in the dark on the best choice for good brake pads. I needs to be good quality but not expensive. On top of this, when I am pulling out and turning, I will still hear slight grinding like I would if the brake was down cause of how worn out they are. This might be a problem, let me know if it sounds familiar. Thanks!

Re: New Brake Time

Grinding of the brakes, what do you mean??... that shouldnt be happening around corners it may be a more serious problem like a bearing or something especially if its on corners... you might have to look into that...

Re: New Brake Time

If im pulling out onto a road, even though my foot is not on the brake it will sound like they are engaged because I hear the griding of what sounds like worn down brake pads. Once the wheels are turned back it stops.

Re: New Brake Time

yer im thinking that it might be a bearing or a join in the arms because you say it goes away when straight... change the brake pads and see if it stops but if it dosent take a close look at the brushings and joins... the bearing would be the last option...

Re: New Brake Time

sorry just had a mind blank... dosent matter what year you are driving... Ummm people round here put me on to hawk HPS pads and you can feel the difference over stock instantly... I bought mine over in Australia so im not sure how much they would be. They will be a little more expensive than stock but not alot... But its really worth it stock pads are a waste of time...but im assuming ur instaling them yourself not going to a dealer???
