    Default Toyota Corolla 1.6 GLi 1995 both front brakes overheating

    Dear fellows

    I need your suggestion regarding front brakes overheating problem. I drive daily from my residence to office which is only a 2 Km journey after which front brakes feel super hot when touched. Car also tends to stop on its own when moving in very slow speed like when i reverse it from parking. Further, i have also noticed a small 'chu chu' sound from front right side. I have only consulted my company's mechanic who is of the view that both calipers need kit replacement. please note that front 2 number iron disc pads were replaced 3 or 4 month back with the Original ones. Please suggest what could be the cause of heating.

    jack up wheel and see if it rotates easily by hand?

    if jamming then take of brake pads and then rotates... if now free then check alignment of brake callipers pins.. and use brake caliper grease on them...

    if after taking out brake pads there is still jamming then check wheel bearings..
    the problem is not our govt... its the people..

    brake discs when touched after use WILL be hot regardless.

    chu chu sound, if its like a metal scraping then normally this is a pad wear indicator to let you know your pads are getting low.
