What would cause the rear brakes to make a pulsating noise when slowing down hill from freeway speeds without shudder in the pedal? My mechanic says it needs front brake but I want to save money and do it myself can you help me?
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi,

Replacing front brake pads and rotors really isn't that difficult. When you do it yourself, make sure to get lifetime replacement parts so you never have to pay again.

You can expect front brakes to last approximately 25,000, but that will vary based on terrain and driving habits. First, here is a link that shows in general how it's done. You can use this as a guide which is on a similar car the process is the same.

Hi:
Replacing front brake pads and rotors isn't too hard of a job. In general, you can expect the brakes to last about 2500 miles. It has become common to replace brake rotors every time pads are replaced. However, if you have no brake pulsation or shaking in the steering and the rotors are in good shape, they will likely last for another set of brake pads.

First, here is a link that shows in general how pads and rotors are replaced. You can use this as a guide.

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/how-to-replace-front-brake-pads-and-rotors-fwd

Here are directions specific to your vehicle for replacement and inspection. The attached pics correlate with the directions. Note: The directions explain how to check the rotor. Once it is to that point, it can be easily removed and replaced.

I take my car for routine maintenance religiously and I have noticed the fact that my rotors at the front are being replaced every three years while my rear rotors have never been replaced.

Please let me know whether rotor change every three years is considered average. I know the wear and tear are based on the use, weather and driving conditions. I would like to know whether I am being taken for a drive.

Also, when my car is stopped, I hear a clicking noice coming from the front and it stops few seconds afterwards. Is this something to do with the Engine coming to a stop?

Thank you vour response. It is very much appreciated.

Hi there, brake rotors are replaced normally when they are below min thickness, some mechanics can be a bit over eager to machine rotors with each brake change and this will drastically reduce rotor life, as for the rears, the rear brakes only do a small proportion of the braking so they will last a very long time. As for the clicking noise I would have the drive shafts inspected for excessive wear.

Many times it depends on the quality of parts used and there is a difference.
The brake job should include, pads, machine rotors (unless below min. Thickness), check caliper slides for binding, new hardware kit.
Rotor life also is greatly influenced by driving habits, riding brakes etc.
