it is possible that the brake caliper on one side is locking up and causing the brakes to grind more,usually on the insdie of the rotor.also sometimes the brake hose is binding and not letting fluid into the system on one sideAnswermine does that same thing but only when i back up and step on the brake. recently replaced the pads and rotors and then it didn't do it for a while but now its starting to do it again. would that be the same problem?
* Could be pads are worn with backing plate in contact with rotor.
* Could also be "chatter" where pads vibrate against rotor, A lube can be used between the pad and caliper.

If you aren't on a slick road or jamming the break, you should see a mechanic immediately.
It depends on where the grinding noise is coming from. Most of the time the grinding is coming from the brakes and the brake pads need to be replaced. If they've been grinding for a while, the rotors will need to be resurfaced or replaced. Other possibilities for grinding are worn axle bearings, or a problem with the clutch. If the clutch goes out, there will be a grinding noise when you try to shift gears.

You may very likely have bent the thin metal backing plate behind the brake rotor. That will cause the backing plate to rub against the rotor and make an awful grinding noise. Its not too hard to reform the backing plate away from the rotor.
