As I pulled out of the parking lot this afternoon, I heard the sound. It was a periodic metallic screeching that modulated with the speed of the car. As I drove towards home, thinking "Please, please, just get me home" the sounds became pretty familiar. At higher speeds, it was a little less grating, but still present. I've heard something like this before from this car. Last year, I heard a similar groaning and screeching from my car before the calipers were replaced by a mechanic at a nearby garage. I'm pretty sure that one of my break calipers is not disengaging properly after I release the breaks, which is causing one of the break pads to wear down from constant contact with the wheel. I think it may be time for another car, I think my patience with this one is entirely spent.
Since people are still visiting looking for photos from Sonya and Zach's wedding, the set I uploaded last weekend is still up.Posted by Drew at June 23, 2006 06:17 PM
