The caliper is grinding against the wheel. I have same problem with new vehicle and 5 years later finally diagnosed the problem. Problem is reduced as pads wear because caliper is pulled away from rim weld.

Grinding metal sound over 30 mph


I believe that your Subaru has a transmission issue. There are quite a few things that will make a grinding noise. Wheel bearings, worn out brakes, damaged brake rotors or drums, loose or damaged brake calipers, defective hardware kit (for the brake shoes), torque converter, flywheel, U-joints, and CV joints. The interesting part of your symptoms is that you can only hear the grinding between 30-60MPH. I think you need to continue testing and inspecting components, one by one. You have all ready narrowed your search down. You know that the Brakes, CV joints, and Bearings are fine. So now you need to focus on the drive train. Inspect as much as you can from the flywheel, to the transmission, the drive shaft and rear axel, and the output shaft and front drive axel. If you can not find it yourself it may be time to send it in for repair. Let me know if you have any questions or new information, good luck.

99 Toyota corolla. I just replaced the brakes all the way around a month ago. pads on front, shoes on back. It now makes an awful grinding sound when the brakes are applied and sounds like metal to metal....


You'll have to determine which wheel the sound is coming from and check it again. It could be something hitting the rotor or drum other than the shoes and pads. Like a brake spring or guide.
You can raise each front wheel one at a time and have someone step on the brakes while you listen too. This may turn on the ABS light however.

Sounds like you are leaking brake fluid. The grinding sound may be from the brake pad not disengaing from the rotor because of low brake fluid pressure. Have this checked immediatley you may loose all brake function!!

I have a grinding noise coming from my front left tire! Sounds like the front end is gonna fall out from under the truck. Could that be ball joints, tie rod ends? When it makes this noise it feels like the...


Sounds like the noise is a bad bearing to me. If the ball joints or tie rod ends were bad, you would have irregular steering or in an extreme case, the front end would fall apart and you would lose steering abilities.

Front brakes grinding new rotors and pads? Are there discs in rear?


Have a mechanic visually check the front brakes and rotors.

As far as the rear, pull the tires and look to see if there are rotors or drums on the rear axle.

Did you check all 4 wheels? You could be grinding on a different tire. If your vehicle is equipped with the rear disk/drum combination, your rear drum brakes inside the rotor/drum could be badly worn, or even the rear rotors. Pull the back tires to be sure.

My escape is making a grinding sound, along with pulsating when braking. My husband has replaced the abs sensor, and it is still doing te same thing. Any suggestions what to do next?


The grinding sound when braking is almost surely worn brake pads. If an abs sensor is bad it will set the abs light on. Heres an easy way to figure whether to look at the front or rear brakes first. When braking, take notice as to whether the vibration is felt more in the steering wheel or the seat. If it is more in the steering wheel take a look at your front brakes first, and obviously if it is felt in the seat look at the back brakes first. Both front and rear need to be checked out because the pulsating you are feeling is due to rotors or drums that have been heated up and warped. In order to fix both problems, you most likely will need brake pads and rotors/drums. If you just replace the pads, not only will the pads wear away faster due to the damage to the rotors/drums, but your vibration issue will not go away and infact may intensify.

Vibration in brake pedal


The rear shoes and drum are not in even contact when braking, thus resulting into entire vehicle vibration. The most likely cause of misalignment is a warped rear drums. However, it is possible that the drums are ok, but rather the rear wheel bearings are worn or loose, this would likely cause misalignment between shoes and drums
