Car makes a loud grinding sound when you brake?

"Could be many things, but from my experience, brake pads might be worn thru and are scraping metal to metal. If so brake pads need replacing. If brake pads are worn thru and not replaced, scoring damage could be accumulating on the brake disc." It could also be due to a warped or damaged router that would be the big metal disk. but if replacing your brake pads doesn't fix the problem replacing your router will more then likely take care of the noise.
