Grinding noise

Sounds like something came apart. Go immediately back to who ever worked on them for an inspection before major damage. If you do not like the answer (you just wore them out and it will cost......) Go to someone else now. Grinding noises from brakes are never good.

It is never normal for your brakes to "grind". A lil squeaky, not so bad. Grinding, not so good. I would take it back to whoever replaced them and have them checked. Ceramic pads are better pads because the stop you better and last longer than matallic pads, and the also create less dust, but they should not be grinding. It could be a sign of improper installation or a sign of bad or worn rotors. Definately have it checked out.

Its possible the brake pads have worn down again, if they are and , obviously , you need to change them. Pay attention to the brake caliper pistons, check that they are not sticking or seized and also the caliper slider. Free off these parts. Hope that helps

I changed the pads and roters and i still have a noise like the brake is grinding

How many miles do you have on the Olds? Many people assume just changing the pads on the high miles car and not having the rotors turn its not good idea. Don't get me wrong, it will work and do what its suppose to although if its was me I would have it done. If you were able to replace your pads then you should also be able to take the rotors off. It doesn't cost much to have the rotor turn and its worth having it done knowing that would cured your squealing or grinding problems and also it will make your brake pad last allot longer better stoping and reduce any vibration as long as your rotors is not warp. Since you still feel and hear the brake still grinding it does not sound right. What type of pad did you installed? I hope you did not installed a pad call "life time guaranteed" which its simi metallic pad and it will grind your rotors down to nothing. I called it steel pad and that is what is made off. What you need to do is get the car going at the high speed like 65 mph on the back road some where and apply heavy breaking come to a complete stop, NOTE: unless you have ABS "Do Not Lock the Brakes Up". do this couple of times this will break the pads in and that should solved some of your problems. If you getting smoke comming out from your pad its fine..

That noise is probably your brake pads rubbing the rotor(s). Time to get them replaced before rotors are ruined.

Make sure the rotors (the disks that the tire rim are mounted on), are smooth. If they are rough, then they are wearing your break pads down. Even if the break pads are new, bad rotors will grind them down. Change the rotors...
