Im sure that the brake pads are worn enough that the rivits that hold the pads on to the metal brackets are rubbung the rotors, or there is no pad left and the brackets are rubbing. Either case you may have to take the rotors off and have them turned to refinish the surface. Rotors on that model cost only 25 $ calipers only about 15$ pads about 15.$ Total brake job front $ 99.00 or less, if u do it your self. While u are at it, check the bearings in the wheel hub, they like to be changed also......
It could also be wheel bearings going out in the front. Parts are usually around 30 bucks but you have to have them pressed into the steering knuckle by someone with a press.
no, that sounds like the brakes are grinding because the are ready to be changed, check them out immediately.
Check or have them checked immediatley. They are going to fail REAL soon.
Brakes, wheel bearing.
A wheel bearing could be going bad in a 2002 Ford Focus if a grinding or rubbing sound is heard. A trip to a mechanic is advised as a bad wheel bearing that's not fixed can lead to damaged brakes.
You need new brakes. IF its really bad you're going to need new rodars.
If your brakes work going backwards better than forwards, you should replace your front brakes. You can get your rotors turned to save time, as well.
The best way to know when your automobile needs brakes is when they start squeaking, grinding against metal, leaking brake fluid and the pedal going to the floor.
It could be that the rear brakes are not functioning properly; leading to the front brakes having to compensate. That is, if the front ones are going out much quicker than the rear. I believe that the front ones just naturally wear faster than the rear ones On a light truck the front brakes will do up to 75% of the braking.
Bad wheel bearing is one possibility.
Yes, the differential can make a grinding sound.
It is likely not the brakes. It sounds more like underinflated/bad tires. It could also be a bad wheel bearing. If it turns out to be the brakes, you would repair it by replacing the pads and having the rotors turned by a machine shop.
Tie-Rod End may be going out. I'm thinking front wheel bearing.
To get your front brakes repaired is about $15. It's fairly easy to repair and the good news is if you already have a screwdriver and some other main parts it may cost nothing at all.
A grinding noise when braking can occur when the brake pads are going bad. You are hearing the brake grinding on the metal discs.
tempo was sentenced in 2002 for 24 years.he was a "drug dealer"bad boy!!!FREETEMPOFREE TEMPO FREE TEMPO FREE TEMPO FREE TEMPO FREE TEMPO FREE TEMPO FREE TEMPO FREE TEMPO FREE TEMPO FREE TEMPO.................................................................if he's not out yet there keeping him for all 24 yrs
I know this is going to sound really dumb to you but the way I tought my children to do rear brakes is to take BOTH rear wheels off and do ONE side at a time so you can look at the side you havent done to see how they go. You cant go wrong as long as you remember the short shoe ALLWAYS goes on the front and the long shoe goes on the rear. Ray
Brakes, If you get on brakes and get a hard vibration and shaking like the front end is going to fall off, front rotors are more than likely warped. Stock rotors are poor quality Replace with after market heavy duty rotors.
if you have wiring going to a sensor near the front wheel bearings, you have four wheel abs.if you have wiring going to a sensor near the front wheel bearings, you have four wheel abs.
probly the brakes ware rod that tells you to replace the pads...if not then its a wheel barring getting ready to let go. jack the car up if you can, and find the wheel that is grinding and put your hands on the top of it and push. if it moves back and forth then it prob you barring. and check your struts!!!!!! i have a 98 grand prix that will grind when going around coners and it was the front struts
If the ticking/grinding noise is coming fron the front of the car, it is probably a CV joint going bad. Outer CV joints will click as they wear out, and if that goes on long enough they will start grinding as the joint basically chews itself up.
slowly push it along then pull the brakes, if it stops, THE BRAKES WORK!!! if it keeps going, THE BRAKES DON'T WORK!!! IT'S ROCKET SCIENCE!!!
The front and rear brakes are a separate system on most vehicles since aprox 1968. One bowl feeds the front and the other bowl feeds the rear. You have a fluid leak somewhere, have it checked out. The front (usually larger) bowl supplies the front brakes, the rear bowl supplies the rear brakes. Check the front brake system for leaks immediately, these are your primary power for stopping. It should also be noted that front brakes, typically disk brakes, due to wearing over time will cause the fluid level in the front reservoir to drop. This will occur over months or years and is normal and acceptable as long as the level remains above minimum and below maximum. Any time sudden fluid level drops are experienced, a leak is indicated and should be repaired immediately.
Four wheel drive? 2 Wheel Drive? Front? Rear? Pads, shoes? You're going to have to be more specific.
sounds like air in the line they might need bleed or the caliber might be going bad if it is on the front
it might not have enough brake fluid or your ABS is going bad. i would take it to a shop cause that can be serious.
