Question about 2000 Chevrolet Malibu
Grinding noise during braking. not typical brake squeal by worn brake tab. disc pads appear ok. squeal tab does not appear to be touching rotor
Could it be a wheel bearing?

Frt wheel bearings make that noise, probably the problem replace both frt hubs and will more than likely take care of the problem

Check for clearance between the rotor and the caliper,and caliper to the rim.Make sure one ,or more of the brake pads where not accidently put on backwards,with the metal on the rotor,it happens sometimes.

check retaining clip on hand brake shoes behind rear rotor,check if shoes arent ondone from clip,check calyper and guide bolts for binding.

It sounds like the rear calipers are bad. Raise the rear wheels and see if you can turn the tires. If you can't, open the bleeder. If you still can't replace the caliper. If you can turn the wheel after you open the bleeder, replace the brake hose to that wheel.

Just did my rear brakes this weekend, Monday had a very slight drag. Noted that when I installed new pads I had to tap them on. That shouldn't be. When brakes are released, there should be enough play to allow the pads to back off the disc. Tonight, I removed the pads and filed down the ends of the tips that go into the top and bottom channels until I could install and remove them with fingertips, that gives them enough play to grab and release. Drag disappeared; the old girl ran like she should.
