Hendie
Fink
North Carolina
Hendie hears a noise when he uses the brakes as the car slows down, kind of a thunking sound, and also feels vibration in the brake pedal. He took the wheels off to check the brakes and hammered the caliper, and the noise went away for a while but then came back. He likely has a warped disc rotor--hammering didn’t make the noise go away, but taking lug nuts off the whee might have, if they were on too tight.
