My brakes were too soft. Spent closed to SGD$1500-1600 simi also change still can't solve. This is also the same time I gave up on sg workshops.

Went to CBU from a recommendation in a Malaysian forum for big MPVs. He took less than 30 mins and settled what others took days. Total bill RM400. WTF lor. After this whenever I have problematic issues I will go to Brandon, else like normal servicing I go to LCH brothers.

Wow, thatís quite impressed for the cost and duration compared. Even SG workshop who called themself Toyota/Lexus specialist canít even solve my problem and having a higher bill cost than others. Really waste of time and money spent. Last week went for servicing in Bukit indah, got them to check on the sound as well the boss told me have to change the brake pads metal clips. After changing, problem still there........

Hi, I’m looking for a workshop to diagnose weird brake sounds still after changing brake pads, skimmed rotors.. went to a few workshop seems that they can’t figure out where did the sound came from. On a Lexus IS250 btw.
are the pads greased properly before it was changed?

is it the clicking sound described on the other thread? reverse, brake, click? forward, brake, click? if it's so... seems like your pads are moving slightly.

Below workshop resolved my drum brake squealing issue with a brake servicing. Did a thorough cleaning of brake dusts and told them specifically where to grease. Squealing gone!

Iím not sure whether the pads have been greased.

Yes I have this clicking sound whenever I reverse-brake, forward-brake and even when stopping at traffic light-brake. What I read from the Lexus forum is that the brake pads have a free play movement causing the sound.

But weird thing is whenever I make a turn while braking (eg. turning down the mscp/ left-right turn with braking, it has a continuous clicking sound.. te te te te

Yes, Brandon is damn good at diagnosing problems.

The main problem with sg workshops is that a lot of their experience mechanics already went back to Bolehland and become their own boss. Those that came last couple of years are inexperienced and we end up becoming their guinea pigs.

maybe while turning it's going back and forth thus the continuous clicking sound, hopefully it's that.. but could the rotor be loose? hope that's not the case.

perhaps you can let the workshop know that the brake pad is running loose and not secured then see what they can do about it? no harm doing a brake servicing to clear off the brake dust as well.

Make sure you tell them your problem first before doing anything

I have check whether the rotor, caliper bracket, pin bolt all is secured tight. I think Iíll go find a shop to grease it then see how it goes.. hopefully is gone. Btw what do they do for brake servicing ?

Btw bro your ride is a is250 as well? Yours is just the single click sound when forward and backwards or continuously during turning as well?

Yes no choice.. lesson learnt better to look up the forums for solution first rather than wasting time and money spent in workshop which canít solve
