Brakes Grinding When Stopping

Brakes grinding when stopping is a common issue that should never be ignored. It typically indicates a problem with your braking system and can have several potential causes:

  • Worn brake pads: One of the most common reasons for brakes grinding is worn-out brake pads. Over time, the pad’s friction material wears down, exposing the metal underneath. This metal-on-metal contact results in a grinding noise when you apply the brakes.
  • Faulty brake rotors: The brake rotors are another critical braking system component. If they become warped or worn, they can cause the brake pads to rub against uneven surfaces, leading to grinding noises.
  • Foreign debris: Sometimes, small rocks, dust, or debris can get lodged between the brake pads and rotors while you drive through Harrisburg. This can cause grinding noises and damage your braking system if left unaddressed.
