    did you install them or did a mechanic install them? if a mechanic installed the take it back to him. if you installed them, go back and check your work. if the noise is a grinding noise then somebody didn't do something right

    Make sure that the metal plate behind the rotor isn't touching anywhere. That can make a noise like that.

    Looks like the new rotors might be rubbing the metal plate behind them but only at the bottom. Not sure why this is happening.

Grinding is never normal regardless of what type brake you have. If the metal plate behind the rotor is touching you can simply take a screwdriver and push it between the rotor and plate and move the plate back a bit. The plate is just a dust shield and helps direct some air flow over the rotor. bending it has absolutely no effect on braking ability (you could actually drive without them on the car and probably would never notice it. Remember...there is no such thing as an acceptable amount of grinding related to brake systems. Not ever!!!

You did replace the pads at the same time ... right? What about the bearings ... did you pack them correctly? Everything adjusted properly and to factory recommended specs?

Some grinding is normal until the surfaces wear in ...

SOURCE: New brakes still making grinding noise

Sounds like it is your hub bearings.  Jack the car up and check for play in the hub bearings.  More than likely this is your issue and the bearings need to be replaced.  Hope this helps.  Thanks for an honest rating.

Likely picked up a foreign object in the pad. Pull the pads and make sure no rocks are there. You can ignore the groove.

New brakes and rotors still makes a grinding noise


If you have eliminated the noise coming fom the rear brakes, then the sound in front could be the wheel hub or bearings. When the brakes work, there is a certain amount of centering that happens when the brakes grab the rotor. Also, it puts stress on the CV joint to have Brakes on one side and Transmission Torque on the other.

You need someone to check these 2 items for roughness.

Grinding noise


Usually a grinding noise in a disc brake is caused from a rotor with a raised edge that froms from normal wear. The raised edge is not a big deal until you install NEW disc brake pads. All of the sudden you have a grinding noise everytime you apply the brake because the NEW disc pad is being ground down but the raised surface created from the OLD Disc Brake Pad. Most of the time the Brake repair shops turn rotors on the car when the pads are replaced and this grinding symptom does not manifest itself.

On and OLD set of disc brake pads over time that raised area on the rotor starts to flake / rust / corrode and can come in contact with the brake disc pad when the brakes are applied.


Hope this explains it well enough.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Where do you put the brake fluid on this car? Because, my car is making a grinding sound when I put my foot on the brake.


The grinding noise probably means you need to put new brakes on. If you fill the brake fluid reservoir, and then change the brakes, the new fluid will run out anyways, because the new brakes will have to be put in, and the fluid will run out.

New ceramic brake pads grinding


Check the metal guard on the back of the rotor to make sure it's not touching the rotor. Are you certain that the noise is from the brakes or the bearing hub, that can be noisy as well?

I have a 2002 Nissan Quest and the rear brakes are making grinding and squeaking noises while braking. The rear brakes were replaced a month ago and since then it's been making those noises. I have read...


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...

When pressing on the break a loud grinding noise comes from beneath the car


Your brake pads are shot, and the noise you hear is the metal of the caliper grinding on the rotor. If this just started happening, you can probably save the rotor and just buy pads. If the rotor's surface is gouged or scraped badly, you'll need new rotors too. Don't drive the car unless you are driving it to a shop to have the brake work done - it's very dangerous as you have greatly diminished stopping power.

Oh, and if they try to tell you that you need new calipers too, trust me - you don't. When the calipers grind on the rotor, the rotor takes the damage. Pay for new rotors, new pads, and I'd have them do a full flush and fill of the brake fluid too (never hurts to do this).
