You might have a caliper "hanging up" a little and it's causing the disk brake pad to rub on the rotor. You can certainly have the problem taken care of at a brake shop. In GM vehicles and any other vehicle with a brake pad thickness sensor it can mean that your brakes are nearly worn out and need to be replaced.
Perhaps a pebble got stuck in either cv joint or in behind brake caliper
Normally caused by worn steering or suspension components.
realignment, 60 to 80 bucks
Normally this is caused by a tire out of balance or a bent wheel.
not usually. warped rotors will cause a vibration during braking.
If they are warped they can cause shaking when braking.
Mostly driving habits (hard braking instead of steady gradual braking) but there are many other factors. If you do a lot of city driving, that will cause significantly more wear than if you drive mostly on the highway. Vehicle condition; were the rotors in good condition when the brakes were done and are the calipers working correctly? If the calipers are sticking, it will cause premature pad failure. Quality of the pads matter also, you know the phrase "You get what you pay for". If you can afford to buy better pads, you should...
No, warped rotors will cause vibration when braking.
You should consult the owner's manual, as this appears to be a fuse/electrical issue. You might also consider removing your foot from the brake pedal when driving at night. Happy braking!
what would cause a rubbing noise on drivers side front wheel especially when braking ( I replaced rotor and wheel bearings are good) ?
it is possibly your calipers and or rotors.
This could be the cause if an improper alignment if it happens under normal straight line driving. If the jerk is more prevalent when going on bumpy roads, it may be a sign of bad shocks or springs. If the jerk is occurring during braking situations, the problem may be related to the bearings being worn or warped discs/drums in the braking system.
Normally, a vehicle has ONE braking system that includes the brake pedal, the brake master cylinder, newer cars then have the Anti-Lock Braking System, then there are either disc type or drum type brakes at each wheel, and everything is connected with small metal and rubber hoses that allow the pressurized brake fluid to activate the brake pads and/or brake shoes that cause the friction necessary to slow your vehicle.
A single knocking noise when braking or turning can be caused by a faulty axle. The cost of replacement is usually around 1,000 dollars.
Sounds like the wheels need re-balancing - that would cause the vehicle to 'pull' to one side during braking.
Sounds like a brake wear indicator. If it changes while braking then it is. Recommend a brake inspection.
It is good practice while driving to accelerate while in a turn. This is because most cars have their brakes in the front wheels, and braking while in a turn will cause the rear of a car to go into a spin.
Not normally.Not normally.
Braking too hard or pushing too hard on the gas pedal.
To the FRONT of the vehicle
Yes, it can cause you a multitude of problems, such as braking.
its most likely the clown wheels that the wanna be gangsters put on the car
