Corolla : Noise


Recommended Posts

I have a 2001 corolla with 36,000 miles. It recently had a 30,000 mile service done. The front and back break pads have been replaced with new ones.

I have noticed that after the service, whenever i start the engine in the morning, i hear a strange noise/vibration from the front portion of the car. This noise comes, only when the brake pedal is pushed. The noise comes for around 2 to 3 minutes.

This happens only when the car is started for the first time in the morning.

Any pointers to whatz happening will be appreciated.

try this i think there is dust on your break pads

  all you need to do is slam on your breaks at about 10-15 mph 2 to 3 times and see if the noise stops this happened to a friend of mine's car.

I wouldn't go slamming on your breaks to fix things, as it may only be a temporary fix... I had this same deal in the last car I owned. I installed some cheap breaks, which were very "hard" breaks, and they will most likely always make noise when breaking.

Hi Guys,

I am new to TOCUS - I am from TOCAU (Australia)...

I have an issue with my current Corolla (2004 Corolla Sportivo), and I notice it predominantly when either weather is cool (ie 10 - 20 degrees celcius) or the brakes are wet like when I have either parked outdoors in the rain or just washed the car...

I find that by the time I get half way up the street from my house, about 1km, it goes away....

I also had the same problem with my 2000 Corolla Levin.

Have never thought anything more of it. The noise usually goes away fairly quickly and the brakes have always worked...
