A metal on metal sound? It could be due to worn down brake pads and the squealing is how the engineers designed the pad to let consumers know they needed to be changed. It could also just be dirty. Go out and buy an inexpensive can of brake cleaner and spray the rotors, pads and calipers on both sides very well. If the squeaking continues it's probable that you need new brake pads.

My toyota corolla2005 rear right side wheel scrubing th tire when breaks


I would first check the break parts on that tire. remove the tire...making sure you take the precaution to chock the other tires and use an appropriate jack and proceed to removing the tire. Once the tire is down look at the the components for wear. Some break pads come equipped with a metal blade that once the pad wears out this metal plate comes in contact with the rotar or drum and makes a high pitch metal grind sound. This would be the indicator to change your pads and may possibly need to resurface your rotars or drums to spec. Let me know if that's what it was. GE.

Screeching sounds possibly to do with breaks?


garages, but not all of them will put on the cheapest pads that they can find and charge a premium price. I did this once! because the boss told me too. the car came back for rattling and squealing. I replaced the pads with the premium ones and they never returned with this problem. from then on I only used premium pads.

Grinding sound when I break and after I break. It


You are correct. The pad has worn down to the steel backing pad, and now you will have to replace your brake rotor as well.

Brakes are making loud grinding noise when slowing down to stop or on an incline


Ok, it could be a few things, 1. bad break caliper. 2. if you have ceramic breaks, it could be a cracked brake pad, and if they are not ceramic they can still be cracked. 3. if you drive a lot then it could be that you need new breaks again.. 4. also have your back breaks checked along with the front ones..

Squeaky noise when applying breaks


semi-metallic pads can cause noise from glazing over if you are too rough on them, or a crappy pad composition. get some BG brand STOP SQUEAL and apply it to the pads. clears it right up

Grinding sound when step on break


Sounds like your brake pads/shoes need replaced. When the brake linings wear out, you have metal to metal when you step on your brake pedal. You may have to replace rotors/drums due to severe scarring.
