You should speak to a senior official at Allianz, the service engineer is generally not of much help. If things don't work out after this you can write to Maruti. This is my personal experience.

Default snag on wheels and brakes

I am using a nissan pathfinder 2000 model SUV. I recently modified my alloys and tyres. I gave a 275/70R16 with a slightly projected alloy. I am suppose to adjust the height of my suspension but it's okay since he has enough room in his wheel well. The problem is that he is giving me a whistling sound from the rear wheels when I apply the brake. I discuss with my mech and we inspect the brake disc. We did some trimming on the disc as it is little uneven and changed both brake pads on the rear. after a couple of weeks, this sound is back again. I strongly belief that it has nothing to do with the wheel profile and new alloy.
Any suggestions?

Your brake pads in the rear are giving a problem, although you said you changed them, did you replace it with genuine spare.

Light rubbing with emery paper will solve the problem but if it comes back again, need to replace it with genuine spare.

Check & clean the brake caliper pistons.

The piston is not retracting back enough.

It is a bit disturbing to note that people do not keep the forum posted once their problems are solved.

Ditto my Problem....this is happening with Esteem, my pads have done more than 8K, and the problem has started to come a week or so back...maybe due to rains..

Hi,
I had few discs noise problems in my previous cars, I always solved grinding a couple of mm. of the pads at theyrs edges towards the external discs rotors. The noise, either braking or not, was due to the normal wearing of the discs, creating a notch of a 1-2 mm at the external edge. With new pads, this notch, despite the fact that did not affect the braking efficiency, was touching the pads and making squizing noise. A liitle grinding to the pads, making their edge angle no more 90 , solve the problem because the little notch was not touching anything anymore, no matter if the pads were original spares or not.
This may help...

Ciao


Ignazio

This brake pad screeching is in my lancer too. I just changed the OE sumitomo pads which were worn out, to an TNG brand replacement pads, but its a big mistake, i should have gone for sumitomo for Rs.1800 .

the TNG pads give noise within 300 kms of its fitment . Please dont buy cheap taiwanese or South East asian contry products, atleast in critical spares.

I dont know what to do ?

Glad you learnt this the easy way.

Please go to your dealer and buy a set of OEM brake pads/shoes. Dont compromise on safety please. Lives depend on it.

How much did the TNG pads cost? And thanks for posting your experience with cheaper pads. I suggest you replace with OEM pads asap.
