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

The pump will need replaced if it is grinding.
Have your brakes checked, rust or wear on brakes can cause grinding when turning.
The squealing sound you hear when your car brakes are wearing out is referred to as a "squealer." This indicator is a strip of metal that when the brake pad wears down makes contact with the rotor making a metal on metal noise.
If your brakes are making a squeaking or a grinding noise when you are coming to a stop this is usually an indicator that your brake pads need to be replaced. Also, another sign that your brakes need to be replaced would be if your brake pedal goes all the way to the floor when pressed and it seems to be taking longer to stop.
Check or have them checked immediatley. They are going to fail REAL soon.
Squeaky brakes can be caused by using cheap pads. You do not normally squeaking brakes from worn pads. It's more of a grinding noise when the pads are low, due to the metal on the pad making contact with the disc.
engine problems not trans.
Check if muffler is loose, check if rear brakes are worn out & grinding
You still have air in the back brake lines or they are not adjusted properly which is making the front brakes take the full load
Something is very wrong. Either defective brake pads or they were installed incorrectly. Have them inspected immediately.
probably, if the pads are worn, or the rotors \ drums are scarred, there will be a grinding noise, plus you should be able to feel it through the brake pedal. most modern brake systems have quealers on the pads to tell you when they are getting worn and should be replaced. If you have a disc brake system, you should be able to inspect the rotors quite easily. Look for gouges in the surface of the rotor. If they are badly gouged, they should be turned or replaced.
97 grand am rubbing/grinding noise from right front that is not wheelbearing or brakes
It's your vehicles way of telling you to change your pads. If the grinding noise is present when you use the brakes, the pad is almost gone. If the noise is present after the brake has been released you're getting close to damaging the rotor and you need to put pads in asap.
sounds like you need pads cheap fix
Sounds like it is time for new brake pads, you should take it in and and have them replaced before you damage your rotors. I think --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Most likely you have a caliper that is not releasing. I am replacing both calipers and pads tomorrow on my 1997 B2300 SE. My right caliper would squeal until I touched the break pedal but start squealing again. I drove it this way for 6 mos. till the pads were gone.
It's going to be your radiator fan clutch. Mine was squealing for a while until finally it turned into clanging. It was pretty bad. I'm in the process now of replacing mine. That should be your next step.
Get your car to a garage immediately! No car should be making any grinding noises while driving. this may suggest a slipping clutch, faulty brakes or maybe even damage to the piston and combustion chambers. it could be either of them which is why this needs to be fixed as soon as possible.
That is the correct spelling of "squealing" (making high-pitched sounds, or slang for informing).
my guess would be to have your brakes checked... or maybe you are dragging something...
Typically disc brakes are known for being squeaky as opposed to drum brakes (although drum brakes can squeak, it's unusual) so I'll limit my answer to disc brakes. Disc brakes generally squeak for one of two reasons: Either they are resonating against the backplate of the caliper (a high-pitched vibration) or the brakes are so worn that the wear sensor is rubbing up against the disc and is making the noise. In the first case, when new brake pads are installed, there are a few ways that pad manufacturers deal with the potential for squeaky brakes: one is by using a gel that semi-hardens and is applied between the back of the brake pad and the caliper which acts as a dampener. Another way (and I'm sure there are more...) is to use a special metal or fiber intermediate shim between the brake pad and the caliper which also acts as a dampening device. If you brakes are squealing and driving you nuts and you just had them replaced - take them back to whomever replaced the pads and have them fix it - they probably left out the important device that prevents the squeak/squeal. If you are experiencing squeak without having recently replaced your brake pads: This is the other reason why your brake pads might squeak: nearly all disc brake pads have wear sensors. A wear sensor is a little tab of metal designed to squeal when the brakes are applied IF THEY ARE WORN OUT. If you brakes are squealing or squeaking, have them inspected.
The real question is what kind of noise is it making when you brake. A pulsing type of noise could possibly just be the anti lock brakes working which would be more noticalbe in slippery conditions. A high pitched squealing type noise is probably the brake pads indicating the pads are in need of replacement, unless you just replaced them then it might be the type of pads you put on and the noise should go away after a couple days of driving. A grinding noise could mean your brake pads are to worn and grinding into your rotors causing a more expensive repair and if not taken care of soon enough your vehicle could become inoperable at any time while your trying to go somewhere.
