Buick Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
It's a 2000 Buick Century, Tires were rotated, front disk brakes replaced in the last month, when I checked the rear pads with the new ones I was going to use I found maybe a 16th of an inch or less wear on them, so I did not replaced them. The drums on the outside seemed to have a lot of corrosion but still seemed sound. Clean on the inside, No excessive dust. No notable corrosion on the front disk brakes, Rotors showed some light wear but still within acceptable limits and were smooth with no grooves. The car does have over 120,000 miles on it.
As I was not there, I have no idea of the brand or type of front disk pads used. I didn’t do the rear, and the owner does not recall when or who last did the rear, Ya I know sounds odd. I do know some metallic pads do tend to squeak, I wondering if those were the type used, would I be able to tell just by looking and what would I be looking for? I did clean out what dust I saw. I didn’t do any lubing. I just inspected them to see if they did need changing. And judging from what little wear I saw they didn’t.
