Just thought I would let everyone know that the noise in the back was
the wheel bearing and they also had to replace the hub assembly. :( But
all is done and quiet again!
My next question concerns my mothers Subaru. A few months ago she
needed front brakes, and so a friend of mine put on new pads. Since
then, they've been squeaking and making grinding sounds as if they needed
new pads again. So we took the car into the shop today, and the guy said
that the brakes are ok, but since the rotors were not cut, etc. it makes
those sounds. So either she can wait and live with the sounds until new
pads are needed again, or get the whole thing redone.
I guess my question is does that sound right? (As far as the results of
not having the rotors cut) Do you need to have everything done when you
put new pads on? Will it hurt anything to just put the pads on?
Same thing on my Subaru, except my pads were worn out in less than 5K miles.
Then changed the pads w/rotors, and all is ok after 30K miles. Still don't
understand why, but if it works, I guess you can't argue.
