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.

When braking a clicking sound appears from the rear end?

One of the components in your rear drum brakes (or disc brakes) could have come loose, but that could be just one of the possible problems. Does the clicking sound more like two metal balls tapping together? know, like the ones people have in their offices at work, and they tap back and fourth? The problem could be your rear drive axle, rear suspension or your brakes. I am unable to be more specific because i would need to know what the clicking sounds like. The cost of repair could be 100 bucks if its the brakes, all the way up to 1,000 if its the axle.

Squealing or metal grinding sound coming from front right side of 2002 Nissan Maxima Does not always occur when braking Is this your brakes going?

Generally, squealing while NOT applying the brakes is the "chirper" or the metal tang rubbing the rotor. Typically, applying light pressure to the brake petal will make the squeal or chirping sound stop. This means your brake pad lining is thin and about to wear out.If you hear/feel a "scrubbing" sound while applying the brakes, generally the lining has worn away enough that some of the backing plate of the brake pad is rubbing on your rotor... This is BAD!Changing brake pads on disc brakes is one of the easiest repairs you can make to your automobile. Most automotive parts stores have 'lifetime warranted' pads, so you buy them once and every replacement afterwards is free. Of course, your labor is not included...However, brakes are a safety issue and you are not mechanically inclined or little or no experience, please consult a qualified mechanic.

What is a hissing sound coming from the drivers side of your Mercedes ML350?

Just know that if that is happening you are in serious trouble as it means that your brakes are leaking. In MLs the brakes use air pressure so if there is a hissing sound it means air is leaking thus your brakes could possibly fail. The best solution is to go to a registered Mercedes Benz garage so they can fix the problem. Alternatively if you dont have the money you could pretend that there is no noise and eventually you brakes will fail and you'll be in an accident i.e. GET YOU BRAKES FIXED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE
