A grunting or grinding type noise may be noted from the front brakes. Our technicians tell us the problem is generally caused by the front brake caliper anchor brackets which can cause abnormal brake rotor and pad wear. The repair commonly involves replacing the brake pads and rotors and updating the caliper anchor brackets with revised parts.
A fluid leak may be noted from the axle area. Red fluid is from the transmission. Brown fluid is from the power transfer unit (PTU). Leaks are commonly from the axle seal and/or PTU cover seal. Leaking seals should be replaced as necessary.
