2000 Toyota Echo Q&A

2000 Toyota Echo Question: brake noise

noise like 2 baloons rubbing every time i apply brakes -
Answer 1
I found the noise is from one or two places - the Discs need replacing or the Wheel Bearings are worn/loose and may need replacing. -
Answer 2
The discs or the drums might be rusted after driving in the rain and not using the car for a while. Just drive the car and apply the brakes a few times. It could also be the pads on the disc brakes or/and the drums that need to be replaced. Have your brakes checked by the car dealer. -
