Question about Toyota Tacoma
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.

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

hiya may i suggest you inspect the front brakes pads and discs for wear and discs for damage /scoures considering age of vehicle? when was last service inspection on brakes etc? if you do not feel competant to check brakes ? quite understand you could pop along to nearest national tyres depot and ask them to check brakes as above and also driveshaft cv joints for wear as these cv joints also give clicking sound when driving tyre dpot do not usually charge to check but will try to obtain job and give you a quote! if you have diagnosis and £££££?quote ? by all means come back with update and glad to offer help and advice if you wish ? hope this helps you as to probable cause? either way repair/s will not be too expensive best wishes

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

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..

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.
