Question about 1999 Dodge Dakota
The most likely cause for your brakes grinding, especially on one side, would be a warped rotor. As the wheel spins this warped rotor is making contact with the pads. As you apply pressure the pads make full contact with the rotor causing the noise to stop. The pads may also be bad. Too much heat will cause the rotor to warp. Your best bet would be to replace both the pads and the rotor as either of them can be causing the problem. I do NOT recommend changing just one side of your brakes as this causes uneven braking and is ultimately dangerous.
