Hello

You may have a worn out brake lining that needs replacing. As for the prices this may vary pretty much depending on your location and the car. It would also save you if you would buy a generic brake pad vs buying one from the manufacturer. I am using a generic brake pad for my Toyota and so far never had problems with it. It is still safe provided it installed correctly by a reputable garage. The rear and the front pads may cost slightly different from each other. I am not sure if you have disc brakes on all 4 wheels. As for the labor cost, that would be hard since this will also depend on the shop you go to.

For you to get an idea the cost may be, please follow the link below:

It is possible that brake rotors were scored and the front brake pads had to be replaced

Whats happened when a front wheel slowly grinding sound than finally got a sort of a lock up on the motorway at about 90k


It could be your brake pad has worn down and is rubbing on the metal backing, or a wheel bearing needs to be replaced. There are several components in there that could be malfunctioning---most malfunctions in the wheel/steering can be VERY dangerous...please have it checked by a professional before you drive it again.

2005 Ford Explorer is making a grinding noise


I had some issues with my 2005 explorer left rear. It was making a creepy old door sound at low speeds and then a high pitched whisel at high speeds. That turned out to be a broken wheel bearing and had it replaced. Note each wheel has two wheel bearings. After that a new noise developed that sounded like metal scraping/ grinding metal. It end up being the brake dust cover got bent when they replaced the bearing and it was rubbing something, the fix for that was bending it so it didn't rub. I hope this helps.

I was going to replace the rear rotors and pads on my 2001 Jetta on the weekend when they began to grind when I stopped. However friday morning the brakes were soft and slow to brake. When stoping from...


The grinding sound was the metal part of the worn out pads chewing your rotors up. If the sound has stopped, then something is completely gone, probably what was left of the pads. You will most likely need new rotors, Advise you don't drive the car until the brakes are repaired.

It is making a hard scaping, scubing sound when pressing brakes and sometime will traveling


A couple things to look for. Brake pads wear over time and they have a 'squealer' that is designed to make a noise to alert the driver that the brake pads are getting low. This will sometimes remain in slight contact with the rotor while driving as well. Sometimes instead of squealing you will hear a harsher grinding noise.
It is possible that there is some sort of debris lodged in the brake assembly as well contacting the rotor.
When replacing the brakes, be sure to pay close attention the the sliders and that they are cleaned and lubricated properly as they allow the brake pad to move away from the rotor after braking.

My 2001 jetta turns off while running then i have a lot of trouble to maintain on I hear a grinding sound after turning switch


i would recomment replacing the fuel filter. it is the number one reason for TDI running problems. the grinding noise, if it is heard only when cranking could be the starter and also could be a failed dual-mass flywheel.

My 2001 Chrysler Voyager shifts into neutral while driving


I doubt you going to get a code from the transmission. Im surprised that shop you have it taken to cant tell you what is the problems. If you have high miles as 100k chances are the tranny is worned and need service or replacing. Transmission rearly grind or make a grinding noise, the brakes will make the grinding noise due to the worned pad as metal rubbing on metal, have all breaks check. If the van is 5speed, yes I can see the tranny will make a grinding noise VS automatic transmission. I would take it to another shop and get another opinion or take it to the dealer which they usually charge 70-75 buck to have it diagnose. If tranny need replacing check ebay to junk yard, is lot cheaper and as good than having it rebuilt.
