Notice brake chirping so changed pads. L/R pad was much more worn than others and L/R tire was getting hot. Changed Rotor and L/R tire is still getting much hotter than others. jacked car up and the tire turned with a little noise from pad touching but not much.
HelloCustomer what kind of vehicle is this?
99 buick park ave ultra.
Okay, was there any heat problems before you changed the pads?
not that I noticed but can't be sure
Okay. Typically on this vehicle it is due to a problem with the caliper. On these vehicles with the parking brake built into the caliper it is common for the caliper to begin to hang up and keep some drag on the pads after the brakes are applied. This will require caliper replacement.
