If they are grinding, chances are the rotors are shot too. I just bought rotors and pads. $400.00 Canadian. Push out the retainers, top, bottom, pull off pads. Remover rotors. Your new rotors should come with bearing races already installed, there should be in front and one in behind. It would be advisable at this time to clean and repack your bearings, (with bearing grease!) install the new rotors and old bearings. If your not sure if your bearings are worn or not, you SHOULD at this time have someone look at them or just replace them. cause you have them out anyway AND it would suck to have to spend more money for new rotors if the bearings went. you will need a significant amount pressure to close the brake pistons enough to get your new pads back on the truck. once that is done. put the retainers back in and pump your brakes till you feel adequate pressure and pedal height. Then slowly go for a test drive to make sure they work.

Your brakes are making a grinding sound when you apply the brakes on a vauxhall zafira?

The grinding sound means that the brake pads are worn down to metal and that sound you hear is metal to metal. you need to have the pads changed, the problem is that you will more than likely have to change the rotors also. The way to avoid this in the future is when you notice your brakes are making a squealing sound that means that the pads will need to be changed soon.
