Why would the front rotors turn after changing the brake pads and rotors?

Front Brake Rotors can be a pain, I would recommend going to your local Pepboys, Kragen, O' Reilly's or AutoZone Near you. They will need your year and model of vehicle.

You either have a bad brake caliper or the brake hose is bad.

A frozen brake caliper or if you just instaled new brakes and rotors you might have oil on the rotors as they need to be clean before installing.

You probably have a warped brake rotor. New rotors are fairly inexpensive, I would replace both front rotors and brake pads while your in there. The calipers and sliders along with the brake hoses and lines need to be examined also.

I just paid $500.00 to replace all brake pads and the front rotors

The most likely problem is warped rotors. Have rotors turned or replaced. Replace front brake pads.

Because the front rotors are warped. You might want to replace the rotors or resurface it.

You probably have severely warped front brake rotors. Machining or replacement of the rotors would be necessary to correct the problem

Your front brake rotors are warped. They need to be removed and turned true on a lathe. Many auto parts stores offer this service.

One of the two brake rotors on the front is warped. You can either buy new ones or get them machined if they aren't very old. sounds like one of your rotors is warped.

The front rotors are out of round are warped. Turn are replace rotors and be sure to replace the brake pads even if thay look good. I would also check the tie rods too.

Normally,when replacing front pads, the rotors and calipers should be inspected for replacement as well. When you step on the brake, this activates the calipers to press the brake pads against the rotors. The symptoms you are describing more than likely mean the rotors need to be replaced as well, possibly they are warped. However, 3 parts are involved that work in unison, so examine all three, both sides. Some Sienna's have a four wheel disc brake option..examine all four. Good luck.

The majority of the stopping power is performed by the front rotors. I would start by replacing them.

remove tire calipers brake assembly then pull your rotors off i would recomend putting new brake pads if your putting new rotors you will need a special puller for the rotors cause they are pressed on

User Avatar

your brake rotors are warped. You should repalce you brake pads and have the rotors resurfaced if possible, or replaced.

User Avatar

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.

balance or tires or brake rotors out of round front wheel drive cv axles

If your asking about what size wrench is needed to remove the bolt that holds the front brake calipers on a 93 Chevy pick up, it would be a 3/8" allen wrench.

For Honda vehicles, Yes. Machining rotors allow a complete level surface for the new brake pads to contact, otherwise you would experience a spongy brake pedal when applied, plus braking capacity would be greatly reduced. It is not a gimmick to get more money. Call Midas, Discount Tire Center, or America's Tire to compare what they do and price for front brakes (if it is the front you are talking about).

About 30 each for rotors and 2 hours (or less) in labour.

User Avatar

Yes. Although it confuses me as to why you would want to use old rotors for a brake job. New ones are cheap.

User Avatar

I think it is because your rotors are worn out. I had the front shudder real bad and the pedal and steering wheel would pulsate when I braked. Then I put on brand new rotors and pads on the front and no more shuddering or pulsating...brakes like a dream now

User Avatar

If you are worried about that, then you probably should buy a honda.ANS 2 -With average driving and changing pads as soon as required, I would expect Mercedes rotors to last as long as the car (or at least 20 years.)

Break rotors heat up very fast while drive and stopping, todays technology in my sense isn't the best on rotors. If you have a heavy foot and brake hard, that will contribute to warped rotors. Sudden stops will also case warping. Most brake Specialist (Les Shwab) recommend on new cars, and new rotors to brake easy, (light foot) on your new rotors for the first 1,000 miles of the rotors life. That way they have time to brake in.
