What could be causing a rotor noise in my Maxima?


Answer by  rocs (53)

Well check to see if your CV boots are gone, if so your drive axles could be going out, you can usually tell with a clicking noise when you turn. If so, have the whole drive axle replaced, you can find rebuilt ones at your local salvage yard.

This could be caused by the rotors having grooves in them, or your calipers not releasing the way they should.

It depends on what you call a rotor noise. If you have squealing when you apply the brakes then you probably have metal on metal contact. Either you have sheared a pad or more likely the pads have worn down to the point that the pad fasteners actually rub your rotor. I would remove the wheel and inspect the rotors.

The brake rotor shield is designed to keep rocks and other debris from contact with the brake rotor. This shield is also designed with an added cooling feature that can direct air through the brake rotor when the vehicle is in motion. If this shield contacts the brake rotor it can cause a squeaking noise. Cheap pad can create noise.
