Q: Thumping when braking

asked by on November 10, 2017

I recently got my brake pads changed because they were worn out highly however, when im driving slowly I can hear a scraping noise still and now when I’m braking there is a thumping noise, and when I’m turning to the left or right there is a clicking noise also.

My car has 127000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi Lidia. Thanks for taking time to contact us today. While it’s not unusual for new brake pads to rub a bit or for excessive brake dust to create squeaking noises after replacement, the type of sounds you are describing are not normal. I would recommend contacting the shop that completed the brake service and letting them know of the symptoms you are experiencing, so they can have a chance to inspect the Hyundai and determine if any repairs are needed. If they can’t or choose not to help you, please have a professional mechanic come to your location and complete a brake system inspection. There could be a loose brake caliper, warped brake rotor or another brake component that isn’t fitting correctly.

Hi, thanks for writing in. In most cases, if your car is not running due to electrical issues, it could be due to your alternator. If the battery is completely shot, the car still would not run. If you are...
