Why are my brakes grinding?
If your brakes are squeaking or grinding it could be because your brake pads or brake shoes are wearing thin or it could simply be that you have some debris between the brake pads and the brake rotors.
When and if you hear loud and unusual noises or your brake pedal is pulsating then it is time to have your brakes inspected immediately. This could be a safety issue if you ignore what your brakes are telling you.
