    That sounds like the brake pads are needing replaced. Was the inspection mechanical or emissions??

This can be caused by a sticking brake caliper. I would check the calipers for proper operation. Also check the condition of the brake rotors and pads. Hope this helped and best wishes.

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.

I had a constant grinding coming from front passenger tire. Replaced Caliper and put the worn pads back on for a day, the constant grinding went away. It would still grind while braking,hitting a bump


It sounds like the brake pads are metal to metal, when you turn the flexing of the wheel makes them touch the rotor and grind. This can rarely be caused by a badly worn wheel bearing as well, have both brakes and wheel bearing inspected.

I HAVE A 98 GMC SUBURBAN AND IF I PUT IT IN DRIVE IT MAKES A GRINDING NOISE AND WONT MOVE AND IF I PUT IN REVERSE IT MAKES NO NOISE BUT U CAN DRIVE IT WHAT IS THAT


Broken wedged break pad? Wheel bearing? Try taking the wheel off and inspecting the brakes. If all is well, remove breaks and see if wheel turns.

1999 Honda civic making a kind of roaring sound


Just a simple suggestion since I can't hear the noise or actually inspect it. I would recommend having the break pads checked out. If the pad is gone and you are now grinding metal on the disc break you will be hearing a horrific noise. You would hear it more when you are slowing down because you are applying pressure to the breaks which in turn puts pressure on the break pads "if there is any pad left" and would be diggin in even deeper into your rotors. Let me know if this is not the issue and I will try to help more. This would be a very good place to start though.
