My rear brakes were making the same sound for over one year. My rear shoes were hard as a stone or glazed. The pads did not look worn, but they made the medal-on-medal sound when I braked. It was pretty loud.

I replaced the brakes shoes and the problem went away. I replaced the shoes myself in about a hour. They were not hard to figure out.

I am having the same problem and it's driving me crazy!!! I have heard that this problem is very common with the cruisers and there is NO recall or anything to fix it except trade-in... I read one thing that said they used Thermal-ceramic brake pads and such and the problem has not returned so... Good luck

New front brakes replace and rotors and i'm still hearing a metal on metal sound when I apply the brake


Are you sure the sound isn't coming from the rear brakes? If so, then Take off the wheel and slowly spin the hub to try to isolate the sound. Could be something bent a bit and is scraping.

Did you use brake lube on the back of the pad surface?

My hyndaui Veracruz started making a scrapping,grinding metal on metal sound from the back,,,any ideas???


Lots! Could be a loose piece of metal scraping on a wheel rim. It could be a cracked or broken brake drum. It could be a broken brake shoe inside the brake drum. It could be a broken brake spring inside the brake drum. It could be a bad wheel bearing inside a rear wheel. Enough?

Rear Brake on passenger side makes a noise like a high speed rub


Thanks for the inquiry.
This sounds like the either the tattle-tail is giving you a signal the the brakes are worn and need to be replaced before they wear the drum/rotors. Depending on the extent of the sound it may also mean the shoes/pads are worn down far enough you have metal on metal scraping the rotors/drums making this noise when you apply the brake. In either case it's time to re-build your rear brakes.
Kind regards,
TF

My abs light is on and when I turn slightley to the right it sounds like my tire is scraping against metal what could that be.


Sounds like a Brake Pad or Brake Pads is worn out and metal is starting to scrape metal instead of Brake Pad. A Caliper sticking will wear one Brake Pad sooner than the other one. Check for grooves forming on the Brake Rotors.

Metal scaping sound from the rear brake - pads are


Parking brake assembly inside the rear rotor/drum is worn out and scraping the drum. The brake cable could be sticking on, and if so will need replaced.

Right rear is making a sound of medal scraping medal. I believe it maybe the wheel bearings.


If it's a scraping sound, when does it happen? If it's when you hit the brakes, then it's likely your rear brake pads/shoes are down to the metal and are scraping. This can happen when you're not hitting the brakes, however. Bad wheel bearings are usually a moaning/roaring sound that increases as road speed increases. Ditto that for differential bearings - if they go out, you usually get a roaring noise that increases the faster you go.
