Brake problem

01 Lude, just put a set up wagner quiet stop pads on front. Normal stopping sound perfect. If I slam on brakes, abs kicks in, I get a fairly loud grinding sound, is that normal or should I look into something?

Re: Brake problem

You have to bed the new pads in...taking it easy until the pads are properly set...


I'd suggest taking off the wheel(s) and inspecting your work again, make sure caliper bolts are secure. Could be rotors causing that problem too...

Re: Brake problem

Ok, did the break in completely. Still have it on hard stops. Driver front. Does the ABS usually make a seemingly grinding sound?

What he said^^^^

No really, there is a break in period for new pads and all too. I usually break my brakes in (wow sounds wierd) by driving 5-10 miles very slow and going easy on the brakes (real long stops with gentle pressure applied) then I go find a nice parking lot and do some reverse stops. Revere stops are a big part of having your brakes set correctly. No one really does it though

And it could very well be your rotors. Whens the last time they were replaced/shaven?

Re: Brake problem

Did you sand the rotors to remove the old film layer from the previous pads?

Just a guess really but this is what HAWK recommends.

Re: Brake problem

if the abs is kicking in your pedal will pulse. and are you sure its a grinding or a the sounds from the abs pump. also did you replace your rotors

i just put a new set of hawk hps pads and brembo rotors. and on the box is says specifically do not drag brakes when setting the pads. that will cause glazing of the pads and then you will either need new pads or have to grind the pads to remove the glazing. long stops with gentle pressure is what will cause the glazing.

its says

do 6-10 stops from 35 to 40mph while stepping on the pedal firmly
then do 2-3 stops from 55 with a firm pedal.
wait 15 minutes to let them cool
now they are ready.

when i was doin the 1st couple stops i could feel the pads catching and then not. kinda like the abs feel...i could also smell em. after doing about 5 times i did the faster stops and it still felts like grabbing then not..

i did like it said and let the pads cool.... and guess what...
they are perfect. nice smooth stops with ease... i highly recommend those pads
