Why Are My Brakes Grinding?

Mechanic Adjusting Brake Pad

 

Are your brakes grinding? Whether they’re making noise as you drive or your brakes are grinding when stopping, our guide can help you determine your next steps. The National Highway Safety Administration has stated that faulty brakes play a role in up to 25% of collisions, so don’t hesitate to schedule service if your brakes are making grinding noises on the roads of Beachwood and Mayfield.

If Your Brakes Are Grinding When Stopping

If your brakes are grinding when you try to slow the vehicle, the three following possible causes are the most likely culprits:

  • When your brake pads start to lose their thickness, they may make a squealing noise when you try to slow the vehicle. If the problem is not dealt with in short order, the squealing could become an even more unpleasant grinding.
  • An even sharper grinding noise that is not preceded by squealing may have something to do with your brake discs or your calipers.
  • Your vehicle’s anti-lock braking system goes into action when you press down hard on the braking pedal—for example, when you need to make a short stop. ABS technology increases the utility of your brakes by preventing them from locking up, but an issue with this safety feature may be indicated by grinding.

For any of these issues, your next steps should be the same. Simply schedule service with our team and let us make a proper diagnosis. If you just need new brake pads, you can pick up a set that will fit your vehicle at our parts department in Bedford.

If Your Brakes Are Brakes Grinding As You Drive

If your brakes are grinding as you drive, it’s likely that something has become lodged between your caliper and your rotor. Fixing the issue is easy, but putting off the work is bound to cost you more in the long run, especially if it leads to rotor damage. Any driver who has experience with brake pads and rotors should feel comfortable removing the offending debris at home; however, you can also contact our service team and have us take care of everything in house.
