why are my brakes making a loud grunging noise everything been replaced except te rotors they barely want to stop


Asked by May 31, 2014 at 01:34 AM about the 1996 Toyota Corolla Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


Did you lube the back of the break pads? What is the condition of the rotors? (Nice and slick like a mirror or grooved real bad) Did you replace the calipers too? Also did you replace the rubber brake lines going to the calipers? With age these collapse internally and don't allow proper fluid flow.
