Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Brakes When pushing the brake to stop there is a grinding sound coming from the front. I checked the brake pads and there is still pad on them, however when I run my finger on the rotor, it is very rough. I'm guessing I need to change the rotors out. Is this an accurate guess on my end?

If the rotor has been ground and is rough you need pads also... Get new rotors and pads too.

SOURCE: front brake pads & rotors on 2003 buick park avenue

first you put the car on stands and and then you take the two bolts out in back of the caliper and remove the caliper and then remove the pin in the center of the rotor and the nut and then take the rotor off and do not forget to repack the bearing with grease and then put it back together take one side apart at a time.just in case you need to take a look at how it goes back together

SOURCE: need rear brake pad and rotor replacement

Just the basics, Brake pads range from $25-65 depending on what kind of quality your looking for. If the brakes are grinding, you will need 2 rotors ranging from about $50-70 per wheel. On top of that, after you pull the wheels you will have to determine if the calipers are frozen or hanging up. Calipers on that truck run about $75 apiece. You didn't specify if it had ABS brakes so I based everything on standart disc brakes. Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

SOURCE: 2004 Saturn VUE AWD V6 has a harsh grinding sound in front wheels

Have you checked your wheel bearings? When these go out you can get a harsh grinding noise. This sounds like that is what it might be. Does it happen when you are going fast/slow turning/going straight? I know you said it's inconsistent but the more info the better. However, if I had to bet, based on what you have already said, it's your wheel bearings. Let me know if you have further questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

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.

I do think the same way. If the pads look flat and not so worn have the rotor turned to eliminate the squeaksyou are encountering

I have an 08 Avalanche. Having a severe grinding noise when coming to a stop in front. My brake pads are fairly new. Just started on Thursday. Sounds horrible now. What could it be.


Hi Benjamin:
I'd be getting the brakes checked (or actually check them myself).
That involves getting the vehicle jacked up, removing the wheels, and visually inspecting the brake pads and discs.
PLEASE! This is a safety issue and you NEED good brakes.

Don't delay/ Get them checked.
Best to you.

Brakes make a whistle noise when applied and sometimes a low grown or grinding when coming to a slow stop or start.


A grinding or rumbling noise can also be symptoms of a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint in a driveshaft. A worn wheel bearing can also cause a 'whistling' sound (as can a worn CV joint).

A grinding noise with brakes is either worn pads causing metal to metal contact on the brake disk/rotor, or the brake backing plate catching on a spinning rotor ... or a loose/missing anti squeal brake shim (they stop the pads from rattling and vibrating).

However, as you say a mechanic has looked at the brakes and can't find anything wrong .. I think I would begin to suspect a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint on the driveshaft (front wheel drive cars).

My brakes sound like they are grinding


check rear rotors and front rotors for rust buildup (flahlight helps). does the vehicle shake when you come to a hard stop? You will either need to have a front or rear or both brake job (rotors cut or replaced and new brake pads) If the vehicle is shaking when coming to a stop, its probably your front pads. If your hearing the noise from the rear its the rear pads or it you hear it from the front its the front pads. If there significant rust build up or your pads are low a brake job is recommended.

When i press on brakes i can hear a grinding noise coming from he front end, what could it be?


Brake pads are worn. That noise is the sound of the backing plate for the brake pads hitting the rotors. You will need to replace the pads and probablt the rotors. When the brakes go metal to metal like that it typically destroys the rotor.

Grinding sound when I break and after I break. It


You are correct. The pad has worn down to the steel backing pad, and now you will have to replace your brake rotor as well.
