Multiple Brake Problems

Recommended Posts

Had a sound like the rear passenger bearing was on the way out, we removed the hub and bearing which seems to be in reasonably good condition. What we did notice when removing the hub, one side of the hand brake shoe was catching on the hub which made it difficult to remove, the other side was fine, was wondering if that could be the noise I am hearing, one shoe being engaged and rubbing on the hub although the handbrake is off, we also noticed one pad is wearing out more on the inside than the outside creating a wedge shape on the same wheel.


We also replaced the front pads, now for some reason there is a rattle on the passenger side but none on the drivers side. We have checked and doubled checked everything but cant find the reason. The rattle happens mainly at slow speed on bumpy roads, when I engage the brakes the rattle seems to disappear. We have put the shims on correctly and also used brake grease on both sides exactly the same so I am dumbfounded to the reason why one side rattles…  


Any ideas and help?
