could be several hundred dollars, but have it looked at now! The metal to metal is the brake pads grinding away the rotors. If this goes on too long, you could grind thru the rotor and the wheel could fall off.

Could be expensive so don't prolong. Also, it is highly unlikely that your wheel will fall off. More likely you stopping capabilities will drastically reduced. And if you find yourself in this situation, do not drive. And if you are driving experiencing this, use your emergency brake and get to a safe spot quickly. Now it depends on whether or not it is a 4X4. If it is a 4X2, it will be slightly less. If you are somewhat mechanically capable and have a repair manual it can be done for a fraction of the price:rotors (if you let them go to far so that they can't be turned-$10-$15 at a machine shop) can range between $30-$50 each and a set of new pads could range between $20-$60. These ranges depend on the quality of parts you are wanting. Also, depending on the area you are located in, pricing for shop costs and parts (parts being about 3X the costs at auto parts stores) would range $375-$650. Just some information for thought.....

The wheel will not fall off because your brakes are grinding. The area the pads contact the rotor is outside the lug bolts. It is far more likely that your brakes will fail and you will crash if you continue to drive with this condition.

bad brakes have no affect on whether or not the wheel will fall off.

Your rotor has nothing to do with your wheel falling off the worst that will happen with your brakes if you go any longer without replacing you pads is it will warp and make a really annoying screeching noise and if not replaced they will rapidly wear out your new pads

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.

Do your brakes make a noise if you get new calipers?

Your brake system needs repair immediately. The brakes are squealing because the pads are worn out, and you are hearing the warning device or the metal to metal contact of the pad and rotor. Stop driving the car and have the brakes repaired. The ABS light may or may not go out. If it does not, there is problem with the ABS. Your standard brakes will still work.
