Hearing a grinding sound could indicate your vehicle’s brake pads are worn down all the way – exposing the metal puck under the pad. If so, when you go to press the brakes, pads with no friction material left are trying to grip on to the metal rotor, resulting in a grind and an increased stopping distance. This is an unpleasant sound, but it could also result in a brake failure when you need it most.It may be time for a Brake Repair.
