i have seen the flex hoses collapse if some one has pinched them off to stop fluid loss during service of calipers if you open the bleeder screws and the brakes release you will need to release the flex hoses
I have an '88 Dakota that had the same problem. I changed the calipers which didn't help, so I checked the master cylinder and found out the piston had seized up. I put a new one on and it worked like a charm.
after changing rotors
if there is uneven wear on the rotors, the new pads will take time to wear into the grooves on the rotors. rotors in poor condition will reduce the efficiency of your brakes, and promote wear of the pads, you will end up changing them more often. Most brake shops can turn rotors back to being smooth and true.
Most of the time, you can get by with just replacing the pads. The rotors generally do not need to be turned if there is no pedal pulsation or vibration. Rotors will need to be replaced if the exceed the minimum thickness which is stamped on the web (area with lug holes).
Have the front rotors turned on a lathe at a dealership. check brakes and rotors
i have 2006 endeavor changing brakes do i have to remove the two screws in the rotor to remove so i can have resurfaced
nope ...its the same as any other car for the basic mechanic.
Possible wrong rotors???
Sometimes it happens because of rotors. If they are old and have a lot of grooves on its surface it will cause the grinding noise. Also it might happen if brakes were not cleaned properly during the replacement.
Yes, I understand the emergency brake has to be off so the pads wont be up against the disc or drum when attempting to change the brakes and rotors.
You or someone has refitted something incorrectly. Go over all your assmbly steps again.
Yes. Rotors on front brakes, drums on rear.
There can be. Only way to know is have your brakes and rotors inspected.
( 2 rotors on the front ) one for each DISC brake
Remove the wheel, the calipers and the rotors, reverse procedure with new rotors.
Only if it has rear disk brakes.
A common reason is that the front rotors have warped. Go check out WikiAnswers on the topic of "warped brake rotors". Rotors should wear out smoothly in normal driving. Use of the brakes that generate lots of heat (hard braking, riding the brakes) will result in warped rotors.
You probably did not lubricate the calipers when you changed them and they are sticking. Or its entirely possible that the rotors are too thin. Always clean and lubricate the brake assembly before reassembly.
When rotors need to be changed usually the pads have worn down. It is always a good idea to change pads when changing rotors.
Anti-rattle clips not installed properly
Usually Just Brakes will charge $99 sometimes more if rotors or calipers are damaged = Front Brakes & Rotors = I just had mine replaced (14" Rotors), cost me $74.23 for the parts. 2 New Rotors, and 4 pads. Now changing them is a different story. My 1996 pads are mounted on tracks, that slide left and right. Held by 2 pins each. Really scary, especially if they are half-frozen.
It has both Rotors and Pads. In other words disc brakes
Front rotors warped or out of round. Have rotors turned and that will fix your problems.
The front rotors are out of round or warped, Need to have the rotors turned.
