Buick Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, I am Mike, welcome. I'm reviewing your question.
Are these the original rotors and if so or even not, did they check to make sure they aren't too thin now?
Do you have a receipt showing the thickness now?
How do you know they had plenty of life on them unless someone measured the thickness.
The minimum thickness after turning is 1.224" and discard at 1.209"
I don't know if they knew to check or not, ask them.
Or purchase a micrometer and check them yourself.
Here is one for $20, https://www.amazon.com/HFS-x0-0001-Solid-Outside-Micrometer/dp/B00OU7T4V0/ref=sr_1_10?s=industrial&ie=UTF8&qid=1501957367&sr=1-10&refinements=p_n_feature_eleven_browse-bin%3A3622112011
See if you can just borrow one.
Was O-Riley's also sure to put a finish fine cut of them?
I said borrow one.
Either that or take one off, take it into a shop or back to O'Riellys and ask them to measure it.
That way you will know for sure and I suggest checking them both.
Your phone call request failed.
You made a initial deposit, that is all.
Did you want me to tell you it wasn't the rotors?
No, I am just convinced it's the rotors since that is what you mentioned was done. I do see the pads were done first then like 2 weeks later the rotors turned. Did the brakes make a noise before the rotors were turned?
Ok, well maybe it is not them rotors then.
I have heard of people grinding chamfers on the edges of pads before to help reduce noise.
Unless of course these pads already have chamfers.
Like this, http://kfebrakes.com/tag/chamfer-edge/
which pads were they?
where these the front or rear or both?
I don't know why either.
Here are the 5 for the rear, which were they?
actually just 3
wagner, brake best or standard?
I would change them to them with a chamfer edge.
Remove them rear pads and return them for a pair with chamfers on them.
It helps quiet them down.
I am reading also about shims.
"KFE Brake Systems announces the newest street brake pad: the Quiet Advanced Brake Pad series. This line of brake pads has many features that benefit the daily driver, starting with its advanced Wolverine dual-rubber shims. Unlike other low quality shims, Wolverine is the world’s leader in friction noise reduction. The shims’ special patented design and high quality materials used in the production of each shim help reduce vibration generated during caliper piston and brake back plate contact. Vibration causes a large portion of the noise you hear during braking. With these shims, over brake noise will be reduced. Like all of our brake pad lines, positive molding and thermo scorched manufacturing processes are used. These features will help give the brake pad a more consistent bite and decrease the time for break-in process. Other features include slotted and chamfered edges on the design of the brake pads. The slots in the brake pads help clean dirt and debris off the rotor, which will help increase brake contact surface and increase brake bite. Chamfered edges help prevent the friction material from lifting off the back plate; this will ensure a long lasting life for the brake pad. For details please select"
Did that answer your question? If so, kindly leave me a positive rating, so I get credit. After all, you have already made the deposit.If you don't, the deposit you made will just sit there and I won't get my share of it.
It was a lose caliper bolt?
Who's fault was that? Who installed those rotors and pads?
