August 25, 2011Hey everyone, this is my first post in a COUPLE YEARS!
I have a strange popping noise anytime I step on the brakes. It started about a week ago and has progressively gotten worse. I pulled the rotos and calipers today; pads on both sides were fine (replaced a year ago), the right front rotor was fine (that caliper was replaced a year ago as well), but the left front rotor had some severe chipping in it. I wasn`t able to get the front rotor off for lack of PB blaster and/or heat (I`m short on time anyway). I was just wondering if the popping noise and chipping were related.
Also, anytime I step on the brakes while going in reverse, I get a heavy click/light popping noise as well.
One of these days when I get the time and money, I`m just gonna do a bumper-to-bumper, but for the time being I gotta make this thing just safe to drive.
