    So, long story short, I'm an idiot and managed to snap the brake booster vacuum hose off at the manifold. (Of course I broke the fitting that's part of the manfold cast itself and not the cheap vacuum hose.) I ordered a new manifold but due to the holiday I won't see it until Tuesday, and, of...
  2. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Hello everyone. So I was doing some research on rear conversion to disc brakes and wanted to see what everyone thought. I've read through all the forums and everyone's opinion was the same, NOT WORTH IT. Although it will not affect most driving situations, well ventilated disc brakes will change...
  3. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hi, I’m going to try and not make a long post. But I do want to pick other people’s minds. It seems like this car a 2012 which is 6 yrs old now and has 115k miles on it is having so many problems. I want to start by saying the service theft something light has came on to service it. Really weird...

    I just got my car back from chev and they told me I need new front and rear brakes... now I’m assuming that means rotors as well? If so is there a different rotor size for front and back and if so what are the sizes? I have a 2014 cruze 1.4 2lt RS
  5. Gen2 Brakes/Suspension Tutorials
    I went through the tutorials in this section and tried to group them in a functional pattern. In general, I started at the front of the car and went back. If you think there might be a better way to group items, I'm all ears. If you add a new tutorial and I don't catch it, post a note here so I...

    Does anybody know the rotor size of a 2015 Chevy Cruze LT looking to replace him with a aftermarket brake kit but they need the rotor size

    Does anyone make a kit to beef up brake performance?

    So this seems to happen more when its cold out below 35 degrees, and also happens when its rainy. It seems like my rear brakes are tighter than my front brakes as if im at a red light and slowly let the brake pedal up, I can feel the front brakes release and the front kind of pop up a little...

    I went through the tutorials in this section and tried to group them in a functional pattern. Normally I start at the front of the car and go back, but in this case I grouped by general categories for now.. If you think there might be a better way to group items, I'm all ears. If you add a new...
  12. Gen2 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    I recently purchased a new 2018 Chevy Cruze LT a few weeks back, and just recently I’ve been noticing a loud pop/clunk noise when I apply or release my brake pedal at low speeds. The same noise can be duplicated over smooth surfaces at low speeds, or after the auto start/stop re-engages and I...

    I hear this high pitched squeek! Front brakes rotors, redone. I think It's coming from the rear drums? I brought it to a mechanic, he said everything looks alright. Took apart the brakes cleaned them up. I still hear the screech! Not sure what it is. I drive for my job, so I don't want to be the...
  14. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Hi everyone, so I have a 2014 Cruze TD and noticed that when the windows are rolled down or I am outside the car and the car is put into drive that this is like a tri tone high pitch popping (I think that is the best way to describe it) and then it’s in drive and you are driving it around you...

    Bled mine today on my 2016 Cruze LT. Its pretty straight forward, might have to remove the wheels, I did since I needed to rotate them anyways. If you have never done it, you will need a 10mm, 11mm and 19mm socket, a torque wrench, some clear tube and an empty bottle and some DOT 3 brake fluid...
  16. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I left the repair shop with new pads, rotors and one new caliper. The old caliper had stuck. After I left I noticed the code P21DD (DEF tank heater?). Could they have done something to cause this? The car has 96k.

    Just noticed some very abnormal and sudden front passenger side brake pad wear on '12 Eco. Both driver side pads still has maybe 8mm left but passenger side outside pad is almost gone (inside pad not too bad...see pics below). Only thing I've done recently was pressure bled the brakes using...

    Yesterday during a lengthy ride I stopped in a parking garage and noticed the familiar smell of brakes. I took a sniff around and found that both the rear brakes (4-wheel disc brakes on my Cruze) had the burning smell. I use my e-brake every time, but is it still possible that it could have been...
  19. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    When I picked up my Diesel last Friday 2/02/18, I was staggered to find the brakes were interestingly warped, and pulsed badly. The rears seemed moreso. Anyways, when I got to work on Saturday morning one of the service advisors noticed a ring of rust around the rear rotor. About a 1/2" on...

    I went to flush my brakes, but I was unable to remove a piece of plastic in there. Any ideas, or is that impossible to remove so I can take most of the fluid out? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
