  1. Brake noise?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I am getting a weird “thump” noise we I release the gas pedal and coast. The noise goes away during acceleration then comes back when I am at a constant speed or let off of the gas pedal. Have not looked at it yet but was asking for ideas? Stuck brake pad? Something loose in the caliper? Only...

    Lexus CT200h "How-To"/Do-It-Yourself

    Lexus CT200h "How-To"/Do-It-Yourself
    I just changed the front pads on my CT200h 2011. I took my time, it was about an hour including cleanup. My old ones were almost gone at 117,000 miles. I brake hard. Bought these pads "Bosch BC1184A QuietCast Premium Disc Brake Pad Set" Came with all the clips needed. No squealing so...
  4. Driving with Parking Brake ON? (Soft Brakes)

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    The parking brake on the CT is easy to overlook. I always put it on while I park. However my brother took out the car recently and i don't believe he is as careful about ensuring it is turned off before he starts driving. Today i noticed my driving brakes seem a bit more mushy than usual. I am...
  5. Factory brake pads finally worn out, at 335k miles

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Yesterday, I replaced my front brake pads (and rotors, they were worn past the ability to machine them) at just about 335,000 miles. Using the regen brakes as much as possible helped a lot. Rear brakes still have a lot of life left.

  7. Brake Squeal

    Lexus CT200h "How-To"/Do-It-Yourself
    Had to check my front brakes out because they were squealing when the brakes were applied lightly. If i did a hard brake they were normal. Took everything apart and cleaned/lubed it all up but still i get the squeal. (pads and rotors are good) Is it possible that it is the 2 anti squeal shims...
  8. Squeaking brake noise when letting go of pedal

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    For some reason, my CT200h (2011, has 140,000km) makes a squeaking/farting kind of sound around the brake pedal area whenever I let go of the brakes or come to a stop and slowly let go. Does anyone know what the issue might be? There's not much of a degrade in performance that I can tell as...
  9. Brake job question

    Lexus CT200h Suspension/Wheels/Tires
    Guys, I had a brake job done on my CT. Everything was stopping smooth and quiet, but the pads were getting low. They machined all 4 rotors, and put the OEM ceramic pads on. After about a week, when coming to a stop sign or red light, it sounded like seals fighting under the hood. The front...
  10. Weird brake noise

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Hi all, I would like to reach out to CT users for their views and share their experiences if they are also experiencing a similar issue. Whenever I brake, at low speeds, below 12 or 10mph or even 5mph, and brake gently, there is a noise that goes like a rhythmic "tak, tak, tak". It is not the...

  15. Electronic "Brake" transmission

    Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    Good morning all. I'm finding it convenient to use the "brake" position on the transmission here in the Denver area BUT there are times that I forget to move the transmission back to the "D" position. Am I doing any damage to anything by accelerating while still in the brake position? Thanks for...

  20. Soft/mushy brake pedal

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    2012 CT200H - I do not drive the car regularly, my wife does. When I took it out a few weeks ago I thought the brake pedal felt really mushy and also noticed (heard) air coming out with every press of the pedal. I then turned off the engine and pumped the breaks a few times. In all other cars...
