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 gears.
