    Default Screeching Noise In Pak Suzuki Alto Brakes

    Dear Alto Users,

    last year i purchased new Alto and driven 8000km. Now Screeching noise is comming from front brakes and feels to slow brake action. This usually happen in at afternoon and at early morning or night brakes works better and without Screeching noise.
    I checked this fault from three mechanics, some told me to replace disks and some ask me to file the disks, in short three mechanics has different suggestions and i am confused.
    If disks/pads were the isssue then what best brand is available in Lahore from which shop.
    Waiting for the response.

    Thanks.

    Get it checked from a Suzuki dealer as well. could be tires, could be brake pads, if the brake pads are finished they might damage the disk to.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    Maybe water has gotten into the disks or pads, coz as far as i'm concerned 8000km is a very low running and these pads and disks are supposed to last much longer.. but who noes its a suzuki...

    Yesterday i clean the disks and brake shoe with NASA carb cleaner. To much carbon was on the disk and deposit on the pads. Issue resolved and no more Screeching Noise. I think the better way to clean the disk pads instaed to get clean from suzuki jokers.

    ^ alto has a bad habbit of leaving too much carbon deposits, just remember as my friend use to have the same issue. but i remember he was a bit too harsh on the braking as well.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    i'd suggest tht u change the brake pads, since the ones tht come factory-fitted do not last long n tend to get very hard as early as 5000Km. get new ones from I. A. traders on walton road near Shahnawaz Ltd. These pads will cost u Rs. 500 from there. Same pads will cost u around Rs. 700-750 from Pak Suzuki Authorized dealers.

    ^asad, and Devil, he already said its solved using carbroter cleaner, it was due to carbon.

    ^ure the first one claiming factoy fitted brake pads being off low quality, havnt bot a Alto recently so i cant asure that, The Alto we have is 2005 but isnt used by us so im also not sure what was it offered with.

    Changed my Balenos factory fitted brake pads at around 70,000kms. Liana was sold under 25k driven so wasnt required.

    There fore i can asure that the parts factory fitted are gud mayb of pathetic quality but they are okay where they need to be, such as clutch, brakes, etc, Altho altos brakes are worse then Corollas.

    I m an alto owner, thts y i m claiming this. same was the case with my mehran. baleno n liana were one of their top notch cars bk in the say thts y their brake pads were fine. liana n baleno were actually very well built consider they were a product of pak suzuki. my swift's n jimny's ff brake pads r actually of high quality.

    Dear its very simple , remove the rims and fixed a plastic nozzle on the NASA carb spray cleaner and spary direct on the both diskpads and disk of both sides u will see a thick carbon liquid drooping on the floor. Repaet this process thrice and fixed the rims back. Urs spary bottle will finished in this process. By doing this 90% of the noise removed. I almost drive 500km and uptill now no major noise.
    One more thing, its better to replace the brake pads because suzuki factory oem parts are not much reliable. I am searcing the very best quality brake pads in market.

    Dear plz be concious and for safety do this at your own risk. I have just express and show my experience. I am not responsibe for any mishap. So its better to replace the brake shoes of very best quality at urs earliest.

    I hope u got my point.

    it seems like in cool weather your breaking is well soundless while in afternoon hot weather the breaking giving sound, so my suggetion is that buy a Hyundai santro which have ventilated disk brake, which cool down quickly as you braking, instead of changing your pad, do change your brand, hahaha lolllllll
    please don't stop anyone to get education.
