    Why is there a grind / squeal at the rear brakes when the brakes are applied cold from not being used?
    The grind / squeal at the rear brakes started after a tire shop installed new rotors and pads aproximately 8,500 miles ago. I have removed the rear wheels to comfirm that the pads and rotors are indeed new. The noise always occurs during the first 2-3 braking uses ...

    Brake problems at slow speed
    Just as I am about to stop, like in a parking spot, the brakes will pulse and release for a few feet. It's like the ABS is releasing the brakes but it's summer and the tires aren't sliding?

      This has to be diagnosed with a scanner with live ABS data from each wheel. The cause will turn out to be one of the 4 wheel speed sensors. If there are any codes stored, they will tell which sensor is erratic.

      1. Monitor the wheel speeds on the scan tool to see if one is slower than the rest. Often the scan tool is not fast enough to identify the problem. On some systems the "decay" solenoid can be viewed. If it can be viewed then see which decay solenoid is activating that will tell which corner of the vehicle the problem is on.

      2. Another method would be to use a labscope to check the signals from each sensor while turning the wheel by hand and comparing to the other wheels.

      Please elaborate, there's no available list for the floating brake rotor for your car. If I'm not mistaken your referring for Brake Disc/Rotor not a floating Brake Rotor. The term Floating Brake Rotor is mostly for Motorcycle.

      I think your car don't have a floating Brake Rotor.

    Is there any way I can stop disk brakes from squeaking?
    I replaced both, the rotors and the pads. Also applied "quiet stop" goop on the backs of the pads, and there is still a nasty squeak. I'm wondering now if there is excessive play in between the pads and the caliper and the movement is causing this squeak to occur.

      the best way to eliminate the squeak is to replace the rotors and the pads with OEM

      are both right & left draging or is it pulling to one side or the other ?you could have an air bubble in the lines or you may have a caliper piston problem ? just a couple suggestions you can check that wont cost you more than a little of your time. i hope this helps.

      both right and left are locking up. the drivers side is worst. I have replaced both calipers, shoes, rotors, and lines. bled the brakes several times. Still drag, worst when it is hot outside.

      Your brake caliper piston on the passenger side is sticking or defective.

      Your rotor disc is warped/glazed/uneven wear

      after you replaced the rotor pads and caliper the right front wheel still locks up? That is usually a caliper problem. But if you all ready replaced the caliper then possible something else is causing the problem, check the brake lines make sure they are bleed correctly and you may want to flush the brake fluid to make sure there is nothing clogging thelines.

      You have to check the brake light switch. Why do you mention "brake light" as in one brake light? Don't you mean brake lights (as in two)?

      This is a serious concern and your vehicle is unsafe in this condition. The brakes and ABS system should be inspected immediately to determine the nature of the problem. Regardless of the type of fault that occurred to trigger the ABS light, a code is recorded in the module's memory to help in diagnosing the problem. On certain cars this code can be retrieved by putting the ABS system into a diagnostic mode. The code is then sent out through the ABS warning lamp. The code number refers to a diagnostic chart in your car manual that must be followed to find the faulty part. On other cars, a scan tool must be plugged into the vehicle's diagnostic port (usually underneath the dash) to read out the fault code.

      If you see slots in the top of the piston, then you need to rotate the piston clockwise with a special tool that rotates and pushes at the same time.
