Why would new Ceramic brake pads make a faint grinding noise?
Hey Barry ==This is the nature of ceramic pads. You just have to live with it. goodluckJoe
Actually its because you bought the cheap ceramic pads and did not put the grease on the back of the pads. I have put many ceramic pads on my own vehicles and have never had one make any noise. If its bothering you next time put the ceramic noise reduction grease on the back. Should have came with the pads when you bought them. Also make sure and buy the more expensive ultra quiet ceramic pads. Yeah they are $5 more but well worth the extra.
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…
Why does your brake light on your 2004 tracker keep coming on and it just started making a horrible grinding noise what could this be?
Do bad brakes gradually make a slight grinding noise and get worse the longer the vehicle is driven without repair?
If you are on a slippery road or just push the brake as hard as you can, that odd grinding feeling is probably your anti-lock brake system. The pedal will feel like it is grinding under your foot, accompanied by a grinding noise. this is a good thing, it means the system is working properly. If you aren't on a slick road or jamming the break, you should see a mechanic immediately.
What is the grinding noise coming from your drum brakes on your Clio 1997 The front seem to be fine and there is no pulsating on the brake pedal?
My front brakes on my Honda Odyssey make a grinding noise but not all the time When brought in I am told my brakes are fine and they can't duplicate the noise?
I have a grinding noise from front passenger wheel and the brake pads already replaced. The grinding noice can be heard even when car is parked and you rock car back and forth. Any Ideas?
It could be a couple different things. Most obvious would be brakes. If a brake is sticking and worn you could be hearing a grinding noise as you accelerate. Second could be a driveline issue. Worn u-joints or something sticking in the transfercase (4X4) could also cause a grinding noise. Best advise is to find a reputable service shop and have them diagnose the noise properly. Good luck!
Why does your front right wheel make a high pitched noise except when you brake but the brakes are starting to grind when you brake you own a 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer OZ?
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…
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…
2003 sonata 54200 miles when i go to 40mph off the pedal i hear noise from the engine sound like a turbine when i brake the pedal i heard grinding noise feel the car is pulling forward backward?
You at least need to take care of the brakes right away. The grinding probably means that the disk brake pad(s) are worn. The irregular braking action is caused by a warped rotor. The brake job will include resurfacing or replacing the rotor and should eliminate the problem. As for the turbin-like noise, I'd have to hear it.
