My dad has a 2000 Quest (see attachment) w/ 90k miles on it. It runs great, but he is having a problem with his front passenger side brake system. I (myself) replaced the pads and rotors at 80k miles with Bosch and Brembos. I noticed that when you are in stop and go traffic for about 5-10 miles, the right side makes a grinding sound and vibrates the brake pedal. I am thinking that it might be the caliper, but I am not sure and was wondering what anyone thinks it might be. I have greased the caliper pins. The other day, I got onto a clear road near my house and opened it up (I know, its a minivan, believe me I know, I drive a 02 Maxima). I got up to about 80 then hit the brakes hard, but not hard enough to skid. Nothing happened. I did it three more times and still nothing went wrong. Later, I drove it to work (8 mile trip) and it started making the grinding sound as I pulled onto the lot. Does anyone know what is wrong with this car???? The problem is getting really annoying and I want to fix it for him before summer. Thanks alot.
Also, the display died on the radio and comes back on every few months for about a week. Any ideas?
recheck your brake job work…
also check the drive axle/ball joints on the offending side
radio display= solder points on the unit itself was weak from the factory and came apart…
Did you apply brake grease to the pads? The pads might be chattering on the rotor.
