Camry 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 27,000 miles
I have a 2002 Camry SE V6 that has a persistent noise when the brakes are applied. I had the car's brakes repaired at jack sherman Toyota in binghamton NY because all rotors were warped at approximately 20,000 miles. I have since noticed a clang or clank when the brakes are applied or the steering wheel is turned or occasionally going over bumps. I took the car back to jack sherman Toyota and made them aware of the noise but was told nothing could be done to correct this problem. I have since pulled the front right wheel and noticed the wheel studs are too short! this problem is actually present on all wheels. The taper at the base of the stud does not protrude through the hub flange to center the rotor properly and this allows the rotor to slap against the stud threads when the brakes are applied. This may eventually cause them to shear off. I have pictures available upon request. I believe longer studs are required because when I removed one of them from the flange and inserted it through one of the bolt holes in the rear of the rotor it fit properly.

Cracked and broken lug nuts- dealer found one and I just found another. I haven't taken it in to the dealer yet.
