Are you saying it only does this on slippery conditions?itr782 said:hello, we have just bought a 2001 Rav4 with 100,000km on it. It is fully loaded and it has ABS. Now my question is, under wet conditions (snow/ice) if u hit the brakes their is a loud grinding noise coming from the pedal as the car is stopping. The pedal also feels like its grinding or hitting rocks or something. My sisters 2001 Echo doesnt do this, it stops smoothly on the dime if u hit the brakes the same way.
anyone else have this problem??
im taking it in to the stealership tomorrow to get it checked out, but if anyone has ideas im willing to listen first.
If you're not familiar with ABS there is a sound from the actuator and you will feel the brake pedal pulse when it engages... this is normal.
Now if your problem described happens every time you apply the brakes likely your front pads are worn and possibly the rotors are warped.
