Nissan Altime 99:Brakes/axles
I had a grinding sound in my car when I am driving at a very slow speed or when I am applying the brakes. I thought it was mostly going to be issues with break pads.
When I took it to a brake store, they said that the pads were worn and have to be replaced. Besides that they mentioned the following which I am not sure about:
1.) They said that the calipre system has to be changed.
And they showed that the axle was kinda wearing out so the grease would stick to the rotor causing burns, which he said will spoil the rotor and said the axle has to be replaced.
Since he was going to change the axle system he said that he will have to flush the car with new fluids.
Am I being taken for a ride here or do you think it is normal.
So in total for all the above(brakes, axles, flushing, etc) he is quoting 700 + taxes.
