ONLY IF YOUR CALIPER IS FROZEN AND IS CREATING FRICTION, BECAUSE IT WILL MAKE YOUR ENGINE WORK HARDER TO MOVE THE VEHICLE.

This is probably due to worn brake rotors on the brakes, if there is no vibration when driving then this will be the cause.

brakes that are dirty or worn out. also check your shock absorbers or springs. or a worn bearing

What would cause a grinding noise after a tire is replaced and the brakes are not worn?

User Avatar

Front wheel shudder could come from worn tires, bad brakes, or worn front end components. Check all of these to find the cause of the shudder.

Assuming I understand your question: The brakes are worn on one side because they are only or primarily working on that side. This should cause the car to pull toward that side when braking.

I tried to warn you that those brakes were worn out.

Yes.... the brakes will make a "metallic" sound when the brakes are getting worn.

worn front end parts (steering or suspension) could cause a car to shake when appling the brakes.

Your brakes are dragging, likely the pads are worn down to the steel. Hope this is helpful, www.TunerTools.com

Possibly a worn engine and/or gearbox mounting or exhaust mounting

Your pads or discs are worn. The brakes will fail soon if not replaced.

Which ever axle the brakes have worn out.

If you have vibration when you use the brakes, the most likely cause will be warped or excessively worn rotors, usually on the front wheels. Unless you are familiar with working on brakes, it is best to take the car to a qualified mechanic for service or repair.

The brake pads could be worn out

in VW's when you have the breaks adjusted out too far they tend to grab when reversing. There is an auto adjuster in the rear drum to keep your rear brakes adjusting. If the brakes are worn out they will "hang up" after reverse and cause squeeling.

most likely a bad axle or maybe wheel bearing Check to see if the inner mud guard isn't rubbing at some point. Axle should be a click or thumping, not a scrape. Brakes worn on that side more and you are down to metal possibly.

Probably a worn wheel bearing...have it looked at by a technician before it seizes.

your brakes are sticking need servicing asap

User Avatar

If the brake pads are not worn out check the backing plate. It is the thin metal plate behind the brake rotor, sometimes it will get bent and rub on the brake rotor.

Possibly warped brake rotor/worn brake pads. Get this checked out.

Sounds like you need new brakes. When they get worn down they make a metal on metal sound.
