You can't just change pads without turning the rotors
& you have to remove all rust from caliper slides &
abutements & lube them
You can turn the rotors by hand & know the brakes
are not the issue, if you did the proper brake service/work

Changed front brake pads and still has a grinding sound and vibration


This is why in North America they always change pads and rotors at the same time. Have you hit a kerb in bad weather? The grinding sound may be bad wheel bearings or CV Joints. Jack the front of the vehicle up and spin the wheels. Put a piece of polythene pipe in your ear and use it to pinpoint where the grinding noise is coming from. It looks odd, but it works.

I had a constant grinding coming from front passenger tire. Replaced Caliper and put the worn pads back on for a day, the constant grinding went away. It would still grind while braking,hitting a bump


It sounds like the brake pads are metal to metal, when you turn the flexing of the wheel makes them touch the rotor and grind. This can rarely be caused by a badly worn wheel bearing as well, have both brakes and wheel bearing inspected.

Most likely cause would be disc brake pads grinding against brake rotor.

There is a grinding sound when I press the brakes on my Hyundai 2010. What might be the problem?


Hi,
If it is a grinding noise then you have a problem with the brake pad area, it may have a stone caught in this area. Or it may have worn front brake pads.

Where do you put the brake fluid on this car? Because, my car is making a grinding sound when I put my foot on the brake.


The grinding noise probably means you need to put new brakes on. If you fill the brake fluid reservoir, and then change the brakes, the new fluid will run out anyways, because the new brakes will have to be put in, and the fluid will run out.

I have a 2008 Honda LXP purchased Novemebr 2008. It has 21000 miles on the clock. From and since 15,000 miles I heard a grinding sound when I applied the brakes after the car was stationary for over 10...


from my experience its sounds like ur front rotors may need resurfaceing...if ur doing that...may as well replace the brakes on the front as well...sometimes glazed front brake pads may make a sound but never heard of it as a grind, usually its a squeal...have ur dealer check ur rotors for hot spots in which u would need them replaced if they are overheated..also check the front pads for cracked brake pad material
