And you know that from the information he told you about running autocross
every weekend of the summer? I know of one 2002 C5 that is on it's third set
of pads and second set of disks and has less than 7,000 miles on it. On the
other hand he didn't tell us he drove it out of storage and they squeaked
and he put it back. It's possible that it didn't move more than 100 feet and
squeaked for half of it. The 2 scenarios are far apart and either could be
true, not enough information for you or me to say what is wrong with his
brakes. Those springs, clips, whatever you want to call them are riveted on,
I've yet to see one come loose that wasn't on a burnt out pad. What year is
the car, was it in storage, is it new, did you just change something like
wheels, tires, was it raining, were you in snow and salt, are you sure it's
the brakes, did the steering wheel pick up the noise, does it do it every
time, how long has it been doing it, and last but not least, did you try a
hard stop to see if it would change or eliminate the noise?
My car went bbbeeerrrrp today, what's wrong with it? You have no idea what
kind of car it was, if it was running, if someone drug their fingernails
crossed it, if the radiator burped, if a shopping cart hit it, or if the
horn wasn't working correctly. I may have even ran over my cat.
My point is that we and anyone else are just flapping our lips when there is
a question ask like this one. You may remember me getting into a guy hostile
zone not to long ago because he ask a question that he gave little or no
information and expected people to read his mind as far as what he should
buy and then make up his mind for him. The topper is his question about it
being as reliable as a Honda, a Honda what, lawn mower?
As a side note when I wash my car the brakes squeak because the soap makes
the disks to clean and they need to get their glaze back. They even chatter
a little, but he didn't say he washed it, so can it be that?
