    I have a hummer h2 that turns traction/abs off when i reach approx 10mph. How do I fix this?
    Mileage: 97580 Work Done: Replaced brake pedal switch (brake lamp switch) as well as EBCM. I also had the new EBCM reprogrammed at the dealership for $100 (w/out guarantee that this will fix my problem) This symptom shows up every time I drive the vehicle past ...

      The best test for when to replace the disc brake pads and brake shoes (friction material) is to remove the wheels to inspect the brakes. The friction material should not be worn away; causing metal-to-metal contact - in fact the brake material may be down to about 1/8" or 1/4" thickness. This would be time to replace the brake pads and / or brake shoes with new. Try the 'How-To-Guides' feature this website - for specific steps to inspect the brakes - including photos.
      The best brake pads and rotors are the ones that; fit your vehicle, come with a lifetime warranty, install without problem, are quiet when in use, and last as they are supposed to - with no premature wear.
      Personally, I tend to purchase the known and proven brand names for all brake products; Bendix, Raybestos, Wagner, Akebono, AC Delco, - they have known quality and are equal or better than original OEM in most cases. With lives at stake - I'll try not to cut corners in this area - to save a few dollars.

    Why do i hear noise from my tires even when i am not excellerating?
    There are no indicator lights on but i here this noise that i cant describe coming from the front tire area even when the car is just rolling. My husband thinks it is the barings but he really doesnt have a clue.

      could be wheel barings..depends wether its a hum or a sqealing sound

      probably wheel bearings, could be a brake pad wear sensor also, depends on the sound - (like Stevec said) In some cases the tires themselves are making noise. This can be ruled out by simply rotating the tires front to back and see if the noise changes and now seems like it is coming from the rear.

    Rear pad removal : there are two bolts for caliper removal do the two torx bolts have to be removed to replace pads?
    the two torx bolts screw through caliper @ ends, which seems to be a bar that goes around to the outside of the caliper toward the outside of the veh. As opposed to running on inside toward under carriage. There are a total of four bolts.

      Remove the bolts that retain the caliper to the spindle. That way, the brake pads can be accessed and removed. Be sure to suspend the caliper securly, and not to use the brake hose to hold the weight of the caliper. I like to use a length of baling wire tied through the caliper mounting bolt holes and suspend to the coil spring - to remove the strain on the flexible brake hoses.

      so, jimm when I have the caliper off the rotor the pads are basically sitting there simply to be pulled out! I dont need to bother with unscrewing any torx screws!

    Replacing rear rotors how much of a big deal to do?
    Main concern is lugs! Or is this something I should leave to a mechanic?

      This is a relatively easy job. Why are you worrying about the lug nuts, that is the easy part?
