      Sounds like you have the wrong rotors. Check your part numbers

    I am putting brake shoes in front of my 89 Chry Lebaron. What is the purpose of the springs on the shoes,
    Do I need to put them back. If so how do they go. Need diagrams

      ABSOLUTELY...... they have to go back on, for they retract the shoes from the drum after you step on the brakes, and they help keep the brake shoes in place. i always advise people to do ONE SIDE AT A TIME...

      Several possibilities; brake pad anti-squeal gel not applied to brake pads, brake anti-squeal clips not replaced, brake rotor is glazed (rotor braking surfaces are polished too smooth).

    What can cause spongy brakes?
    I feel almost no resistance when I press the brake pedal.

      Spongy brakes are a result of air getting into the brake system, which can happen from leaks in the lines, too little fluid in the system or the replacement of a part like a caliper that opened up a brake line. More than anything, you need to purge the air from the brake system with what is known as "bleeding the brakes."

    What's up with the brakes on my 2009 Chrysler T&C?
    I just passed 24,000 miles, and out of the blue, a loud squeal starts from the driver's rear tire. Looking, I see three brake rotors that appear to be worn - but evenly across the face, and at the driver-rear rotor, I see the middle half of the rotor obviously ...

      Why no recall? Why no TSB? - Because TSBs and recalls costs money and manufacturers (not only Chrysler) do their best to deny any allegation about the manufacturing of their vehicles. As long as they can get away with the recall, they will not hesitate to take advantage of it.

      These things are taken care of the NHTSA, people report to this agency and if enough people (probably millions) have brought up the issue, that is when something actually happens.

      "what has Chrysler corp done to resolve this obvious defect?" - Since your car is 2009 and covered by warranty, the best advice i can give you is go to the stealership and bring this issue to them.

      Yes it will be a reacuring problem and yes it will be the last Chrysler you buy. I have an 2009 Town & Country and we are looking for a new viechal as we speak. Our T&C has 86,000 mls and it needs its 4th set of brakes and the rotors are warped very badely and will have to be replaced because they cant be turned anymore. at 50.00 a rotor and the cost of brakes I'm over it. Good Luck.

    I have a 2005 Chysler Pacifica. The Brake Light & ABS Light come on intermittently. Also, my lights seem to flutter?
    Checked & added brake fluid. Not sure why the lights and dashboard lights lightly flutter in power and intensity...as if there is an electrical issue? Please advise.

      On the chryslerforum.com I saw a result for this because I have experienced the same issue. The ground from the battery to the bottom of the fuse box needed to be replaced, however I had my mechanic check this and it was not my fix, but it may be yours. On the forum look for user name "yvonneras". hope this helps

    Brake squealing after changing the brake pads
    I recently replaced the brake pads on my car, along with one of the rotors, which was significantly worn. The other rotor did not look worn, so I did not replace it. It looks old, but did not have any scoring in it like the bad one did. I remember to use the ...

      Make sure you apply liberally, and all surfaces " (EXCLUDING THE BRAKE PAD SURFACE!) ".

    Manufacture torque spec for bolt on calipers brake pads

      Although there are torque specs for almost every fastener on a vehicle, almost nobody uses them, that is, outside of building engines, and transmissions, rearend/transaxles-critical applications, etc.

    Brakes squeak and grind
    How much would it be to fix the problem

      It depends on the extent of the wear and reason for the brake noises. Try the 'Estimate Cost' feature on this website to gain a rough estimate for the repair costs. Typically, any repair shop would have to examine the vehicle - remove the front or rear wheels to check the brakes and wear.

      use original equipment brake pads instead of aftermarket.

    Do I have to change the brake rotors every time I change the pads.
     
    • yboy82

      No you don't have to replace brake rotors everytime you got to change your brake pads. But the brake rotor should be machine/ resurfaced. Brake rotor should be replace when it is out of minimum thickness or damage upon inspection.
    • billdc
      3/23/2012 billdc
      thanks yboy. I used to have them resurfaced but in my area it is almost as expensive to resurface as to buy new. So the last couple of times I just recycled them. I was hoping that I could just replace the pads every year or 18 mts and maybe rotors everyother time.
