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.
A grinding noise when braking can occur when the brake pads are going bad. You are hearing the brake grinding on the metal discs.
lol change your brake pads they make a grinding noise when its time to replace
A 2000 Chevrolet automobile grinding noise can be caused by several things. The most common cause of a grinding noise is worn brake pads.
buy new brake pads
Check the brake pads. The most common cause of the noise is the pad backer grinding against the brake rotor.
your brake pads are probley wore out so its grinding on your rotor
your barrins in the wheels
Perhaps worn brake linings? Bad wheel bearing?
It is not good if a persons newly changed brake pads are grinding. To stop this, a person needs to change the brake caliper pressure.
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.
i have a grinding noise on the front left wheel. i have taken the calipa off and i have one brake pad that is shot. could it be that or can it still be the bearing. how can i find out.
The grinding noise is the brakes pads proably the noise is in the front. The front brake pads are easy to replace and is a do it yourself sort of thing. My guess is your brake light is coming on because of this condition. I assume your brake light has been coming on for a little while now.
