I learned something new about the brakes on the 05 canyons. you need to change the pins with the pads. sounds like you are having the same problem as me. when you change the pads get the hardware kit for the front brakes too. it has the pins. but if you did like i did you need a new caliper bracket and pins now. i found at napa bracket rotor and pins come together for about 100$

I have a 2006 f-250, i have a grinding noise that sounds like it is coming from the rear wheels, but when i apply the brakes it stops. what could this be?


Are your brake pads worn? They will have a small metal tab on one of the pads on each side. These are referred to squeeker tabs. They let you know when your pads are worn enough to need changed before you get metal to metal part failure. They are designed to barely scrape against the rotor when the brakes are not applied and make an annoying noise. I would look again and make sure all rear pads are in good shape. If they are you might clean the brakes, sometimes a piece of dirt or debris can make the same noise. If you have one pad that is worn more than the rest make sure you clean and grease the caliper slide pins when you change the pads. Actually, you always want to make sure you clean and grease the slides when you do a brake job.

Grind steel on steel noise rear passanger side when coming to a stop do you know what the problem is?


hi this sounds like your rear brakes are warn and the metal grinding noise you can hear might be the metal part of the pads rubbing on the disks, either that or your break shoes are doing the same if they are the drum type rear brakes, hope that helps

Grinding/metal dragging on ground noise only when car is in drive or reverse and moving, no noise if brake is on, looked under the car and nothing is hanging down


does the noise go away as you brake? if so your brakes need replacing either pads or discs, if you look at the discs and they seem scored or glazed then the pads are worn to bare metal and discs may need machining as well as new pads.

I replaced the rear brake shoes on a 2003 Hyundai Sonata about 2 weeks ago. When I took them off...the passenger side was like new but the drivers side was worn badly. The inside shoe was worn but the...


Did you replace the rotor on the driver's side? If the rotor wasn't replaced or turned (to make the surface smooth again), the rotor may have chewed up the new brake pad.

The other possibility is that the caliper is not centering itself over the rotor, causing one side (outside) to do most of the braking. The caliper assembly has to be able to 'float' in order to keep itself centered. Check the guides that the caliper is mounted in for damage or corrosion that would keep the caliper from moving in/out.

Rear brakes (driver-side) squeal after replacing rotors and pads


you need to grease the metal clips at the top and bottom of the pads (dont get grease on the rotor or pad though) and also spray some "disc brake quiet" on the back of the pads. it comes in a red can and the spray that comes out is like sticky red paint. do those 2 things and the squeals will be gone.

Unusual brake wear


The two different styles/designs may be part of your ware problem, they may not be made of the same material and maybe warring fastest but I fear that you could have a caliper hanging up. I would go head and install the new bushings in that caliper, so you know they are good and not sticking, with the rest of the brakes all put back together. Press your brake pedal down hard with the rear wheels jack up on stands. Place the shifter in neutral see if you can turn both back wheels fairly easily, the left rear maybe sticking or hanging up. If you don’t find anything, try driving it till you feel it pulling again. Come back and jack it back up, check it again it may have to get hot to act up. If it is hanging up it probable would will not be hard to fine the wheel that is hanging up will be hard to turn. You will feel the drag on it and you may hear it on the rotor. When you release the brake pedal the pads should return far enough to create a little space between the pad and the rotors letting it turn freely.
