Depends on if you have 4 wheel disc brakes. If ya do.. its rotors, if not its drums. I would assume, however, since every cutlass I;ve owned has had 4 wheel disc brakes, that yours would too. Look through the holes in your wheels, and see if there's a metal disc or not, or if you want to be sure, see if it looks the same as the front.
Yes. Rotors on front brakes, drums on rear.
rear brake drums or rotors are out of round.
If the rotors have over heated you will get brake chatter. The pedal will shake when you apply the brakes. Usually the drums are a little tougher. The new rotors are very thin.
you might have to bring it to a brake lave to size up the rotors and brake drums.
Brake drums can not be cut. The shoes inside can be replaced.Only disc brakes(rotors) can cut.
It depends on the vehicle. If it has 4 wheel disk brakes it has 4, others have 2 rotors & 2 drums.
If it is a Toyota, they do not know how to fix the squeaking brakes either. Even after replacing all the pads and machining the rotors and rear drums
because the alignment is off Warped or out of round brake rotors/drums.
It depends if it has rotors it has pads, if it has drums it has shoes. Hope this helps.
Warped brake rotors/drums.
What should it cost to replace rear brakes, drums and rotors, '96 Volvo 850 GLT.
Either warped rotors or drums can cause pulsating. Apply the parking brake slowly while going about 15mph and see if t pulsates. If it does, it is the drums that need turning. If not, it is the rotors that need turning.
Yes all personal repairs are legal, if you are only replacing the pads and rotors/drums you can easily do it yourself. Bleeding the brakes is easier with 2 people.
Brakes shoes are those parts that are located on the back of the brakes to help keep the drums and rotors in place. Some cars has wheel cylinders and others have brake shoes.
A 1977 Chevy pickup truck would have rotors in front and drums in the rear
I worked on a 2003 today and it had both. It had rotors up front and drums in the rear.
Sounds like the brake pads - shoes are worn down to medal and cutting into the rotors and drums. Need to pull all 4 wheels off and check the brakes.
Warped rotors or drums and also have the front end checked as well as bearings. Warped rotors being number one, if it's in the steering wheel. If it's more in the seat concentrate on the rear brakes system.
any good mechanic can do a set of rear brakes in a matter of minuites, assuming your drums or rotors are in good shape and can be machined. (machining process may take 30min or so) as to price, most places have a pre set price. Tires plus for example has a preset price of 89.99, this includes pads or shoes, and machining of drums or rotors. if you need new drums or rotors, or if you need any springs or retainer bolts, this cost will rise accordingly
Answerif discs/rotors, over compensating on rear brakes ( basically means too much braking power is going to the back ) Baised too much to the rear.if drums, warped drums, sticking shoes.oil on brakes would do that
The rotors in disc brakes and the drums are what the pads and shoes rub against to stop a car. With use, the surface can get grooves in it or a build up of rust scale; reducing the braking efficiency. To machine the rotors and drums, they are put on a lathe that cuts a new smooth surface on the face of each. Depending on wear, any given rotor or drum can probably be turned 2 or 3 times before needing to be replaced.
Auto Zone will generally keep in stock brakes, rotors and drums for most American made vehicles. Brake shoes purchased at Auto Zone are also guaranteed for as long as you own your vehicle. Establishments such as Brake check will install shoes, drums, and rotors that you have purchased and brought to them. I would get several quotes to assure you are not being price gouged on labor.
You don't grease the brake drums/rotors or shoes/pads, nor rollers. For s-cam foundation (drum) brakes, there should be grease zerks on the s-cam housing and slack adjuster.
