The brake hose maybe bad replace it. They can claps on then self inside the hose. One work to check is have someone push the brake paddle down and release it if the rotor is hard to turn, open the bleeder vale if fluid comes out and the rotor turns freely that you problem.

SOURCE: Front brakes shudder a fair bit when braking

It seems now a days that everyone loves to turn rotors, the only reason to turn a rotor is if it is running out, what this means is that
it is moving back and forth and not in a straight line. What a brake tec is suppose to do is place a dial caliper on the rotor and spin it and see if it is running out,if it is then it must be turned,as long as the rotor is not under the mfg min width. Any vibration,pulsing,shudder,
would tell me that it needs to be turned, just wanted to explain the reason behind it. Any other questions please post back as everyone is more than happy to help.

SOURCE: Yellow DSC and Brake light on... recently changed brake pads

Abs and dsc are related and with the light on these won't work. It is possible that you need to go back to where the work was done to look this over.

SOURCE: Brake pad wear indicator light

Did you change the sensor? if you did, do a battery reset (disconnect for 10 to 20 min.).

Obviously the wear sensor has made contact with the rotor and is already damaged. You're not even suppose to resuse the wear pad sensor if its worn or damaged anyways.The way how the sensor works is that it must make contact to the rotor to complete the wear pad light indicator circuit. There is no mentioning that he replaced the the wear pad sensor with a new one.

But if one did replaced the wear pad sensor and the wear pad indicator is lit up, the way to reset it is to leave the key on in ignition switch #2 or #1 for about 30sec. turn it off and its reset.

Its possible that you forgot to replace the brake light sensors. They are about 15 bucks, and have to be replaced in order for that light to turn off. You can either get them from the dealer where they'll likely charge you 3 times as much, or you can go to http://www.turnermotorsport.com and get them there.

You have to reset the light by leaving the ignition switch on position #2 for about 30 sec. turn off the ignition and start the engine up and see if it goes out. I recommend buying a new wear pad sensor as well because now light will lit up when you're way below spec (less than 3mm)

Also, you could try with this procedure for one E39: Turning off the Check Brake Linings warning on the Instrument Cluster...
- so you've just changed the brake pads on your E39, along with the wear sensors. The old sensor(s) needed replacement cause you waited a bit too long before changing the pads, and wore through the sensor(s), turning on the BRAKE light on the dash. But wait, the light is still on? But there's a new sensor installed... what gives?!
- there is a procedure required in order to turn off the light/warning. With the ignition off, step on and hold the brake pedal. Now, while holding the brake pedal down, turn on the ignition switch to position 2 (just before cranking). Hold the brake pedal until the BRAKE light is off. Tada, the warning is gone and reset.

NOTE: This procedure worked on a 2001 E46 325i. It took about 15-20 seconds, but it cleared out w/o having to unhook the battery.

What could be causing a clanking noise when breaking?


More then likely its time to change the brake pads and rotors .How dose the pedal feel and do you feel a pull to one side or the other. It could also be a loose wheel bearing or ever a peice of debrire lodged in one of the calipars. But most likely in the front brakes they do 70 % of the stopping

if you can drive 50 mph and push on the brake pedal lightly and the steering wheel pulsates, the front rotors are warped. new does not mean straight, and cheap never means good. If you feel it in the pedal or your **** then the most likely problem is the rear brakes,.

How do you remove the front rotors. I changed my pads but not the rotors. I saw a screw in the rotor with a philip head. I tried using my philip screw driver but it wouldn't turn I was only going to strip...


your rotors are only held on by your brake calipar and wheel when its on..they get rusted on remove wheel break calipar and the rotor should come off use a rubber mallet and beat on rear side and itll pop off.

Rear drivers side brake bleeder niple is froze - need to replace calipar - is this difficult? I have completed other repairs on brakes and replaced calipars before just not on a blazer


This is just like any other vehicle to change out the caliper. Almost all brakes are the same when it comes down to it. The only difference is the way certain companies either install them or the way they work. But on the Blazer it is really simple and can be done by just taking your time and doing it like you have done before
