You need to replace the rear brake pads and anything else the brakes may need. Driving without rear brakes would be foolish and dangerous. Good brakes are a number one priority.
need new rear brake pads.
To put brakes pads on a 1994 Honda Civic, you will need Bleed brake fluid.
If your brakes are grinding at all, you need to inspect the brake pads. I suspect you will find your pads are worn out.
The brake pads are a part of the braking system. Many people do refer to the brake pads as "the brakes", but you'll need to make sure the rotors and calipers are working properly as well. Additionally, The term 'brake pads' are associated with 'disc brake' systems. Earlier vehicles had 'brake shoes' which were associated with 'drum brakes'. Depending on the year of the car, front brakes could mean either and is a generic term.
When you're brake pads be calm worn, they will have a slight shimmy when you apply the brakes. When the brake pads are completely worn out they will make a grinding noise.
Brake pads are part of the cars disk brakes. There are four different brake pads they are semi-metallic brake pads, organic brake pads, low-metallic NAO brake pads and ceramic brake pads.
To repair brakes, you need to first decide what needs to be replaced. You may want to replace just the brake pads, or the brake lines.
It means you need to change the worn parts, usually pads or shoes in the drum
The brake pads may not be adjusted properly. The wrong brake pads will also cause the brakes to drag. The brake pads may be too thick.
Replace the pads, and the rotors. You need to change the brake pads and the rotors.
No, as long as your pedal seemed good before the brake job, and you do not loosen the bleeder at all, you do not have to bleed the brakes.
There are 2 pads on each brake.
Its got disc brakes in the front, therefor brake pads and its got drum brakes in the back, therefor brake shoes
Whenever you want to but once your brakes start squeaking that means your brake pads are low or your discs/drums are wrapped and need to be skimmed or replacing
Jack your truck up, take your tires off, and look at the brakes, you can usually see them. if not you need to take the piston housing off that pushes the brake pads against the rotor. another clue that your brake pads are worn is your brake fluid. if its low it usually means your pads are worn (the more you have to push on the brakes to get the pads to push on the rotor the more fluid is used) Jack your truck up, take your tires off, and look at the brakes, you can usually see them. if not you need to take the piston housing off that pushes the brake pads against the rotor. another clue that your brake pads are worn is your brake fluid. if its low it usually means your pads are worn (the more you have to push on the brakes to get the pads to push on the rotor the more fluid is used)
brake pads can either be on the front or rear of a car... it all depends on if it has disc or drum brakes on the rear... drum brakes have shoes not pads
Mainly at the brake pads.
Securely jack out the front and of your VW. Remove the tires and wheels. The brake pads will come off after you remove the brake spring and caliper. Reverse the process to install the new brakes.
It can be a sticky caliper or you need to change brake pads.
It depends on model and year of production. If you have front and rear disk brakes, you need 8 pads (4 front and 4 rear): 2 per each wheel. If you have only front disk brakes and rear drum brakes. You will need 4 front pads and 4 rear brake shoes.
Brake pads should last approximately 50,000 miles. The life of a brake pad is dependent upon the driver and the driving conditions.
