Brakes


#1

My mom has a 1994 Toyota Tercel and when you mash the brakes it feel like they are bumping on the right side.The brakes and all are good . What could it be?


#2

Describe “bumping”…Is it more like a nasty vibration, a rumble that shakes the whole car and as the car slows down, so does the shaking?


#3

And how do you know that “the brakes and all are good” - apparently not, so do you just mean that there is still enough meat on the pads? That doesn’t mean the brakes are “good”


#4

Remove the wheel and see if the brake caliper bolts are tight. Check that the other bolts in the suspension are tight.


#5

Any good shop should be able to ID and correct that problems quickly. My guess is a bad rotor. I kind of like hellokit’s suggestion as well.
