Getting a rock caught between a brake surface and the pad or shoe is common, but a grinding noise because the brake surface is meeting a worn away pad or shoe is even more common. Have a garage look at it, if the brake material is gone you need new brakes, if it is just a rock they can pluck it out for you. Bad brakes do not get better on their own.

Changed the rear rotors and brake pads and there is a grinding noise


Here is what I have found out. I have an 2008 Toyota Tundra 5.7 4x4, and I changed the rear brakes and rotors. No noise prior to service. After installing new rotors, I started getting a metal scraping noise. After $300.00 in diagnostics, I found that the new rotors are rubbing the against the brake shield. The inner lip of the rotor needs to be machined down to avoid this rubbing. See toyota tundra forum.com for pics.

Grinding or rubbing noise in left front wheel, mostly when braking . What do i look for?


Grinding is a sign on brakes in need of replacement. Your pads are worn through and now the metal backing plate of the pad is grinding up against the rotor. Replace the pads and rotors asap to prevent further damage.

My car makes a scrapping and or grinding noise when driving and braking like i'm dragging something it is a Ford Focus SE 2004


It a small piece of metal that rubs against your rotor, to let you know the brake pads need to be changed. It's an indicator before they get worn really bad. If this is not repaired you will spend more money to replace the rotors from the metal grinding into the metal rotor.

I have a 2002 gmc sierra 2 wheel drive and when I take off initially and when I turn left I hear a grinding/grumling noise.


Loose or damaged Wheel-Bearing causing other parts to rub together, like the brake components or your wheels are too big or shocks weak, or exhaust hanging and are rubbing against something.
Perhaps oil is leaking from your rear axle housing dut to bad seals (check inner of wheels) and around axle housing - remove plug and check that your finger can reach in and touch it. Could be a sign of rear end failure or simply the backing plates on the brakes behind the rotors and the drums (steel disk) sometimes rust on the drums can grind against the backing plates if they are weak or warped (clean this area).

Grinding noise from rear. Brake pads? Bearing maybe? Seems to be coming from the passenger side rear wheel area. Any help would be great. Thanks.


Have the rear brakes inspected. These are real easy to change if they need to be. You need to look under the car just outside the differential. This is an inboard brake system so the wheels don't need to be removed.

Rhythmic grinding noise front end - 98 chevy astro AWD


Could be low on oil, trans doesnt have fluid, wheel bearings are gone, or could be something stuck under the vehicle and either the tires or the drive axle is rubbing against it.

My 95 toyota corolla makes grinding scraping noise when going uphill. It's coming from the right front of the car. Almost sounds like it's coming from the breaks or transmission. A mechanic thinks it could...


Bad motor mounts will not usually cause the kind of noise you describe they will cause more vibration to be felt at all times.

Sometimes the brake rotor dust cover plate can rub against the rotor and make a grinding/scraping sound. Raise the car, remove the wheel, and check the clearance between the dust cover and the rotor.

If your shocks/struts are bad the tire could be rubbing against the strut. Check the strut.

My BRAKE light came on and I thought it was my parking brake


Rubbing noise usually indicates that your brake pads has worn down, and it's rubbing against brake rotor. It's more like grinding noise rather than rubbing, right? And for the brake light problem, as brake pads wear down, brake fluid level goes down too. Your car is equiped with a brake fluid level sensor. So, check your brake pad first before adding brake fluid.
