You still have air in the back brake lines or they are not adjusted properly which is making the front brakes take the full load
Front pads (disc brakes) Rear shoes (drum brakes)
Lets say you do not have ABS. If that is the case, is it the front or the back brakes. If it is the back brakes, then it is possible that the brake springs have to be changed, that is of course if you have drum brakes. If you have 4 wheel disk, then its another problem, possible the brake equilizer valve has to be replaced.
The cost for the front and back brakes would be about $600 dollars.
Usually the rear pads or brake shoes depending on whether or not the back brakes are disc or drum brakes will last 2 times longer the the front brakes. 75% of your braking is done by the front brakes. For example, if you have 60,000 miles and your front pads need to be replaced the rear ones will only be about 1/2 worn out.
Depends where its squeeking from, front, back, brakes, exhaust, ect.... Depends where its squeeking from, front, back, brakes, exhaust, ect....
Yes, it has front disk brakes and drums at back.
hard breaking or no back brakes. also, back brakes adjusted wrong.
If you don't repair your front brakes, your back brakes will wear down faster. This will cost you more money in the long run. It's probably important to have all your brakes working.
Disc in front, drums in back.
Yes, a Fiat Punto has disc brakes at the front and these have pads. The drum brakes at the back have shoes.
yes there are..they will be either standard or anti lock brakes.It depends on what kind of brakes are on the front of your car.
There are sliding doors in two layers, front and back. Slide the front panels right until you reach the 2nd door, and slide the back door left, then work your way back right, sliding the back doors left out of the way.
it either has front disc brakes and rear drum or it has front and rear disc bakes. look for a flat disc in the front and back - those are front and rear disc brakes-they take pads. The drum brakes take shoes.
You should take it back to the shop that replaced them and ask. It's possible that something is hung up somewhere that's causing the noise.
yes they do most of the stopping
It is a cause and effect thing. Was the other axle inspected if all the brakes, front and rear, were not replaced? Can you tell where it's coming from at all? Is the noise identical from when before the brakes were replaced? Year, make, model and mileage would help as well. Drum on rear? Don't assume the brakes were done correctly. Believe it or not, I have done a few where someone put the pads in backwards with the backing plate against the rotor. If someone worked on it for you, take it back to them and complain.
There are a couple of possibilities. One is lack of lubrication of brake system moving and/or contact points such as between back of pads and caliper housing and/or piston. Another could be that, the rotors/discs are warped/distorted and need to be machined or more preferably, replaced. If you replaced the front brakes (example) and you still have a squeal, it's possible it may be coming from the rear brakes.
I have a 99 grand am and I am tring to replace the brakes on the front of my car but when I go to put the brakes back on the caliper wont line up wheats wrong with this? How do I fix this?
first thing to do is check the brake shoes. make sure they dont need replaced then check the cable to make sure they are in working order and if all that is good and someone just replaced the brakes shoes make sure they put the long side on the back side of the brakes
To change the front disc brakes on a Kia Rio, simply remove the assembly held by two bolts. Push the piston back and replace the disc brakes with new.
AnswerThey won't move back very much. If you can spin the wheel, that's about all you'll get. If it still rubs or hangs up, you may need to clean and lube or possibly even replace the callipers.My '89 Firebird front disk brakes won't release for about 15 seconds after applying brakes.Replaced calipers with new, no change.Replaced master cylinder with new, no change.Next to try is the combination valve unit since this is where the two front lines connect.Since this problem is affecting both front brakes I'm discounting a brake line problem.
Its got disc brakes in the front, therefor brake pads and its got drum brakes in the back, therefor brake shoes
your back brakes are supposed to apply before your front brakes, they do this so your car does not take a nose dive every time you apply the brakes. but if it is very noticeable i would check the adjustment of your rear brakes (if you have a disc/drum setup) or i would check your proportioning valve if they are locking up
