I had new brakes rotors and calipers and the brakes are squeling now.The garage said my brakes where to hard and they had metal in them they sanded them.Still squeling What could be the cause.?

first of all, the pads may be semi-metallic and have chunks of metal in them which may cause the squeal, change to a less metallic pad may help, also the backing of the pads should have an anti-squeal gel applied to them, when you apply the brakes, the pads will hyper vibrate and can cause a squeal. The gel will stop the vibrating. first of all, the pads may be semi-metallic and have chunks of metal in them which may cause the squeal, change to a less metallic pad may help, also the backing of the pads should have an anti-squeal gel applied to them, when you apply the brakes, the pads will hyper vibrate and can cause a squeal.

How to Replace brakes on a 2005 Mazda 3?

To change the brakes on a Mazda 3 shouldn't be rocket science. However it took me a lil while to figure it out. It's almost the same as changing regular caliper brakes except instead of using a C-clamp or similar object to compress the piston...use a pair of needlenose pliers and turn the tip of the piston in a clockwise rotation to compress it. A clamp will not work. aside from that everything should be pretty simple. Hope this helps make sure to apply pressure while turning

If your tire blows out should you apply your brakes immediately?

No, you should take your foot off the accelerator and slowly apply the brakes in that order. Do not slam on the brakes. Do not panic and hold the steering wheel solidly with both hands. Slow down and pull off the road. If you do not panic you will have no problem controlling your vehicle and safely stopping. The odds of a blowout on modern tires is very slim if you keep them at the recommended pressure as listed in your owners manual and on the drivers door post and do not overload your vehicle.


It was recommended to me to apply the brakes while driving through a puddle because having the shoes or pads pressing against the drums or disc will help keep water out. Is this True?

No, that is not true. Water is going to get on the rotor and on the pads no matter what you do. This water will quickly evaporate once you apply the brakes. Even if you do not apply the brakes centrifugal force will remove the water as you drive. Once you apply the brakes the heat created will remove the water very quickly. You may experience a slight loss of good braking the first time you apply the brakes after going through water which is normal.
