Loud Brakes and ABS Light
I did front pads and rotors about 6 weeks ago. Had to use the old mangled pad clips as the new heavy duty pads only came with small "one size fits all" clips. (It actually said on the instructions that these clips may not fit the pads in this box!) Anyhow, after the swap I had the ABS light pop on once in a while, usually while my wheel was cranked and I was using the brakes (parking etc.)
Over the course of the last week the ABS light has been coming on and off more frequently and two days ago a grinding noise starting when I apply the brakes. Also, the calipers have been grabbing very loudly! I can hear them (thunk!) grab the rotors.
I ordered new, full sized clips (thinking they may be rubbing the rotors), but I'm not holding my breath. I'm jumping into it tonight, so if anyone has any ideas or has seen this issue, let me know!
