Question about Toyota Tacoma

1 Answer

Grinding from wheel

When in 4WD and coming to a slow stop on snow, there is a loud grinding noise as I apply the brake which I can also feel through the brake pedal and the pedal pushes back at me. I basically loose all control of my brakes. any ideas? Have never had it do this before.

No year, no mileage.
bad brakes, top list.
get it serviced. now.
not checking pads (for wear) and rotors for damage, every 20k, invites this.. brakes dont last for ever on any car.... get it services, better get a 100 point inspection , if you tend not to do them at all.
its a danger to you and us, on the road.

SOURCE: My brakes grind and vibrate when pressed

My feeling is that you did not use a high quality pad like the Bendix or wagner thermo quiets and the rotors likely need surfacing even if they are new they can be warped due to the way they are stored. Good Bendix pads for this vehicle retail for around 75.00 or more

Sounds like the pads are worn out and are grinding on the rotors. You will likely have to replace the pads and rotors.

SOURCE: Brakes are making loud grinding noise when slowing down to stop or on an incline

Ok, it could be a few things, 1. bad break caliper. 2. if you have ceramic breaks, it could be a cracked brake pad, and if they are not ceramic they can still be cracked. 3. if you drive a lot then it could be that you need new breaks again.. 4. also have your back breaks checked along with the front ones..

SOURCE: 2009 Hyundai Sonata-clicking noise at brake pedal,brakes applied

This is not a rich mans car so its normal. Your hearing the solinod that lets you take the car out of park after the brake is depressed so the car can't be put in gear unless the brake is on. If the noise bothers you the soliniod can be found and wrapped in insulation like a rich mans car them you can ride on feeling like a rich man too. ( the Beatles sang that a long time ago) and its still true today.

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).

Try replacing or resurfacing your rotors and brake hardware. Using brake pads similar to the oem will also help stop any problems.

At low speeds while turning the steering wheel and applying the brakes there is a grinding noise coming from the front brakes. It's the same noise when the brakes are applied in the snow on slippery...


you need to check to see if the new brake pads have been fitted correctly, some brake pads may go on either way & the metal side is on the rotor......hope this helps......cheers.

Loud grinding in front driverside brake when applied, the pads are only half worn and I can't feel any significant grooves in the roter


do u only hear the noise when braking? those vans r prone to wheel bearing failure. the noise will always be there and will get loude with speed. the other thing it could be is the backing plate behind the rotor. all u have to do is gently push/pull it away from the rotor.generally if the wheel bearing has failed and the van has ABS the abs warning lamp will come on from time to time the eventually stay lit permently.
