Why Are My Brakes Grinding?

Mechanic Inspecting Brake Pads and Rotors

Have you ever driven on the Kingfisher streets to run your errands, having a routine day until you hear odd noises coming from your car? Then, you thought to yourself “Why are my brakes grinding?” Your brakes making a grinding noise signals problems with your braking system that will need immediate attention. Sure, you can continue to finish up your errands before checking out your brakes, but you should get your brakes fixed as soon as possible since the National Highway Safety Administration discovered that faulty brakes could be a factor in as many as 25% of all road accidents. If you put off finding out why your brakes are grinding, the worst-case scenario is you end up in an accident and you won’t be able to continue doing your errands anyway. 

Stop by our service department at Jacksons of Enid CDJR and we can help you! We will go over some of the common reasons why brakes grind below. 

What Do Brakes Grinding When Stopping Mean?

When you heard your brakes making grinding noises on the Woodward roads, did your brakes grind when stopping? If yes, then this might mean: 

  • Your brake pads could be the issue. As brake pads lose their thickness, they begin to squeal, which is known as “brake scrubbing.” However, when the pads wear down more, the squeal will turn into a grinding noise instead.
  •  Your brake disc and calipers might be the problem. Did the noise you heard sound sharper and more piercing? You might also feel a rumble in your pedal. To stop this noise, a brake pad replacement and potentially a disc or rotor replacement may be needed. 
  •  Your Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) might be the guilty party if you notice your brakes making a grinding noise when stopping at full force.If you apply the full brakes, your ABS will activate and you might even feel vibrations in the pedal. 

What Do Brakes Grinding When Driving Mean?

What about if your brakes are grinding throughout your entire Hennessey commute? This could be rocks and debris bouncing off the caliper and rotor, which can be resolved easily. However, time is of the essence, so you need to fix it immediately to prevent more damage! 

If you are experienced with cars, you can remove the debris yourself. However, most drivers rely on professional service technicians at your local Enid dealerships like Jacksons of Enid CDJR to get the job done properly and to secure a peace of mind that all of the issues related to their brake grinding are solved.
