Hello. Im hearing and feeling a grinding sound each time i brake. But it only happens when i come to a stop not when im in the process of braking. Is this a rotor/brake pad problem?

Yes, it is a rotor/brake pad problem in most cases.

By machining or replacing the rotors, if too thin, and replacing worn pads, the problem should be eliminated, assuming that the bearings are ok.

Rear scubbing on my right rear brakes


If there is still a problem with your brakes take it back to the shop and they should look at it free. They should probably fix it too.

Grinding front end when I brake on my 01 lincoln navigator


This sounds like a definite case of worn brake pads. They might have previously fitted pads with soft linings for better stopping power and if your truck is automatic the pads wear down faster on automatics than manual.Ask them to fit pads with harder linings if they have available, but you will have to machine those brake disc's to re-smoothen them or fir new ones(A better proposition) as they are most probably scoured from metal against metal and fitting new pads onto scoured disc's will not only make your brake drums run very hot, but also wear down pads faster than normal and cause poorer braking response.Or maybe that was the problem from the beginning, scoured disks from before a year ago! Check it out good luck.

My brakes are grinding and even when im not pressing the brake petal i hear a grinding noise..


That's probably why the caliper may be hanging Si the pad or what's left of it will remain in contact rather than retracting.

Check your disc brake pads to see if they are down to the wear indicaters. When brakes are worn it creates a metal on metal grinding sound when vehicle picks up speed but will intermittenly stop when pressure is applied to brakes. Note that front brakes will be replaced 2 to 3 times more often than back brakes due to the front brakes being your primary souce of stopping power.

Whenever i apply pressure to my breaks every time im approaching a traffic light or stop sign, i immediately hear a clicking noise. i dont feel anything in the pedal so im confused.


It is most likely the brake pads are worn out,if the clicking is from the front,if it is in the rear pull the wheels and check the brake shoes,there may be some hardwear that has came apart inside the drum.

How do i fix my ABS going out?


The grinding noise has alot to do with worn pad's and rotor's(the disc),and if those two part's are worn down enough ,of course your going to feel like your not going to stop.Have those replaced and your brake lines checked(and/ or bleed) out to make sure there aren't any leak's and the master cylinder .

Everytime im driving slow and i brake my brakes grind and i have to press hard to come to a stop. it rarely happens when im going at higher speeds although it has happened. Whats the problem?


normally grinding and a hard pedal mean excessive wear on the brake pads, you wont feel it as much at higher speeds, at low speads its more previlant due to the pressure......check front pads first, the rear ones usually wear a lot slower
