Hey Ike==Ever since the EPA took away asbestos, this has been a problem. There are greases, shims etc that are designed to help but sometimes they don't. Make sure the person who replaced your pads used what the manufacturer suggested. GoodluckJoe

Why do my brakes vibrate so bad when I stop on my 1997 Volvo 850?

Vibrating brakes are almost always a symptom of worn rotors. When the rotor wears down, or has grooves, the brake pad can no longer make a flush connection with the rotor. This will cause the caliper (which holds the brake pad) to move in and out as it tries to establish a flush connection with the rotor. The rapid movement of the caliper is what causes your brake pedal to vibrate.

1993 Volvo 850 rear brakes vibrate?

Volvos usually have a quite hefty brake bias favoring the front. While this is good in terms of stability and predictable performance under braking it does leave the rear brakes prone to rusting, particularly the rotors. My first suggestion would be to have the brake rotors checked for rust or surface evenness, and either have them replaced or resurfaced. While you're at it, make sure there's enough material left on the brake pads and that the caliper is moving freely. A once over with a wire brush and a little bit of lube won't hurt it either.

How do you know its time to replace brake pads?

Volvo brake pads do not have squeaking tabs on them except for the 2000-2004 S40. Regular inspection intervals are required to visually determine brake pads remaining thickness. Volvo recommends replacing the pads when there are only 2mm remaining. Once the pads wear completely away and start rubbing metal to metal the rotors must be replaced. Rotors have two minimum thicknesses also. One minimum is Pad Change Min which is the thickness usually about 0.8mm above absolute Min Thickness where the rotors will probably not be below the absolute minimum by the time the pads wear out. The absolute minimum thickness is usually stamped on the hub of the rotor and varies with the diameter of the rotors. Your local dealer can tell you what the thickness specifications are for your particular vehicle.
