2005 ATX

Replaced front pads and rotors 9 months ago. Left side started making noise last week when slowing down through approx 20mph all the way to stop. Inspected, pads almost worn down and rotor is scuffed / scratched near edge.

Caliper going bad?

Also, clarification needed- is bleeding the brake system required if changing pads and rotors only?

Thank you

1 ). So what you are saying is.... The pads are worn out only on the driver's side, right ??
This could be caused by:
A. Sticking caliper (rebuild or replace)
B. Brake Hoses breaking down internally, causing the caliper to get stuck 'on' (a common problem on Neons.)

2 ). No, it is not necessary to bleed the system if you are only replacing pads.
However - IF the brake fluid is Old and Dark and has never been changed, it's not a bad idea to bleed the system, in order to 'flush' some of the old fluid out.


It sounds like you are going to have to open up the system to replace hoses and / or the caliper, so you'll end up having to bleed it anyways.
