    when i fully pressed the brake pedal then there isnt any noise

    but i dont understand why it makes noise when the car is cold and as the car gets hot then the noise is gone up to 90 %. . . .


    one more thing i come to know while inspecting the suspension
    the person saying that the bush or chamta is making noise due to dryness so i am looking for some expert to check the car but i am not getting the desire person who is well known about the suspension

    but my problem is not about the wobbling or anything

    my problem is when in the morning i slowly put the brake pedal it makes noise like something is not grip properly like gram gram but on the other side if car runs for 10 - 15 min then there is no noise coming from any of the wheel
    now the problem is very minor but it irrates me alot just to make thing more clear i had changed the disc pad and put the original toyota disc pad but stil the problem is there

    one more thing the problem came few days back when there was heavy rain and car traveled too much in the rain then this problem arise after been driven on rain

    now anyone help me the matter
    I got redirected from another thread by ur post related to this brakes issue.. i didn't go thru all posts here but i think what i'll write will help u, still if u need further help contact me or write with a quote or pm so that i know when i log in :

    ... disc pads are a mixture of compounds including leather, synthetics, metal and even sand & stone. The purpose is to get minimum wear and keep it cool durib operation but it should never harm the disc
    ... now when we put cheaper disc pads (local, taiwan, japan all brands included) and not the genuine ones this mattullergy shift. these hard pads on heat not only deshape irregularly but also scratch the disc
    ... when the mechanic asks for tooling of disc "you should assess whether i'll use substandard disc pads or genuine in future", if the answer is sub-standard (original are generally 5k plus for a pair) then avoid tooling till you are having some serious braking problem because tooling has a limit; i.e, after a few time of this treatment you'll have to change disc

    ... now these substandard disc pads also swell as per humidity in environment since their leather content is more and sub-standard as well. this swelling causes abnormal nioses, even slightly stuck breaks in the early morning start and behaves better afte r a few kms of driving or u can say after heating up

    I have Vitz 2007/8 and need to change front and rear break pads. I am a little confused as there is huge price difference between break pads that are available from Toyota Dealer ship and that are available outside.

    Just for example these are available for Rs. 1500
    Sehgal Motors| Vitz Diskpad 2006 Japan Front

    Where as the ones Toyota Dealer ship have are around 10K

    Really not sure if the ones for 1500 will work?

    Any suggestions?
