Customer Question

Hi Ms. Pearl, I have a 2011 TSX and when I slow down to put on brakes I hear a whirling sound. I just had the rotor turned so it is not the brakes.
JA: How many miles are on the car? Are these the orignial brakes?
Customer: About 65,000

The front brakes are originals. The rear brakes replaced in 2016.
Expert:  Matt Haas replied 2 months ago.
Hello, can you please clarify. You just had the front or rear rotors turned? Also, did you have pads replaced? It sounds like you might have rust build up on the rotors somewhere. The calipers may not be fully functioning due to frozen slide pins.
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
HI Matt. The front and rear rotors were resurfaced. No pads were replaced. It does feel like things are a little tighter. What do you think?
Expert:  Matt Haas replied 2 months ago.
Ok, you should get the pads replaced at the same time you do the the rotors. The noise is probably from the old pads. Any grooves that were in the rotors before resurfacing are in the pads as well. There are probably hard spot on the pads. Also, the full surface area of the pads is not contacting the fresh rotor surface.

Okay thanks Matt. I will have the pads changed, hopefully that solves the problem. Blessings to to
