Most likely your rear brake shoes are worn down far beyond the min limits and you now have metal to metal contact, which causes the grinding noise, overheating and poor braking. You most likely will need to replace the drums. The other rear wheel will probably be the same.

How mich does it cost to get the brakes calibrated on a Kia? Recently had the brakes replaced but they still grind.


Yes.
Please find someone who will remove your wheels and check your brake drums or rotors, whichever you have, and do this out of kindness.
This person need to show you the rotors inside and out, and if you have brake drums on the rear, remove those and show you the insides.
You are looking for metal-to-metal area that will make a grinding sound.
It will be easily seen by you. especially when you compare that with a normal smooth wear area.
If you find a rotor or drum NOT smooth but all rough, that is the wheeel you need to have fixed.
One more thing. I have a Honda Civic that grinds most every time I stop the car, and there is nothing wrong with it.
Some brake shoes and rotors are noisy.
Be blessed.

My hyndaui Veracruz started making a scrapping,grinding metal on metal sound from the back,,,any ideas???


Lots! Could be a loose piece of metal scraping on a wheel rim. It could be a cracked or broken brake drum. It could be a broken brake shoe inside the brake drum. It could be a broken brake spring inside the brake drum. It could be a bad wheel bearing inside a rear wheel. Enough?

Grind steel on steel noise rear passanger side when coming to a stop do you know what the problem is?


hi this sounds like your rear brakes are warn and the metal grinding noise you can hear might be the metal part of the pads rubbing on the disks, either that or your break shoes are doing the same if they are the drum type rear brakes, hope that helps

Drum brakes causing intermittent grinding noise


Sounds like one of the springs that hold the rear brakes in place broke. Jack her up, pop off the tire, remove the drum and take a look. If you need to see what a good one looks like, look on the other side.

This is not a very common problem, but I saw it last year on a 69 chevelle.

Good Luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Rear brakes make a grinding sound


Check your brakes ASAP. When you hear a noise like that the brakes are usually already shot. Check them and you may needf machine work done or have to replace the drums/rotors. When I say about checking the brakes check the front also even thiugh they are not grinding they are working harder to stop the car since the rears are grindinding.

Jeep grand cherokee constant grinding noise, and but in reverse with full right lock it feels like it is grabbing the o/s rear wheel and a heavy deep grind comes from it! thanks in advance


As weird as it may sound, i'd check the power steering fluid. An empty power steering fluid tank will make the power steering grind and make weird noises, and having it at full lock will worsen the noise and have no fluid to build pressure it might starting jumping the steering around a bit. If the power steering is OK then you will need to take the rear drums apart to check for any broken retainer springs preventing the pads from returning into place and it will keep braking and grinding. Could also just be some rust or a broken off metal part in the drum also, but either way you will need to take the drums off and inspect the springs, clips and pads to ensure everything is OK and nothing stays jammed into braking position. Also be sure to verify the rear brake cylinders in the drums, as it may also be them that don't return to the initial position and keep the brakes on.

Rear brake grinding noise when pressing on brakes


The grinding noise in the rear brake drum means that brake shoes are warn out and the metal part of the shoe is touching the drum. You need to replace it asap as it will damage the inner part of the drum and than replacing shoes will not help without skimming or replacing the drum.
