Q: CV boots need replacing

asked by on

I believe the CV boots need replacing. Whenever the tires are turned there is a grinding noise. The brakes also need to be changed.

A: I would start with replacing the brake pads...

I would start with replacing the brake pads and rotors. If the brakes are below minimum specification, the grinding noise will be present. In order to confirm this issue, have a certified mechanic come to your location to diagnose the grinding noise and determine what repairs are needed.
