Question about 1999 Mazda Protege
I hear a grinding noise when I press on the brakes. It comes from the right side. Any ideas?
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.

Brakes might need replacing. Grinding sounds come when the pad is on its last skin . It could be the metal that warns you that if you don't replace the brakes soon, you'll be replacing the rotors as well.
