Why Are My Brakes Grinding When Stopping? 

For most Peabody drivers who hear any kind of brake-related noise, their brakes make a grinding noise when they stop or are in the process of stopping. If your brakes make a grinding noise when stopping, then here are some things to know:

  • If your brakes make a grinding noise when you stop at full force, then there could be an issue with your Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS). The ABS system is activated when you apply the brakes at full force, and it may even result in vibrations in your vehicle’s pedal.
  • One of the most common reasons for brakes making a grinding noise is due to the brake pads. Over time, brake pads wear down and lose their thickness, which causes brake scrubbing and results in a grinding or squeaking noise. 
  • If the grinding noise that you hear is sharper than usual, then this could indicate a problem with your brake disc or calipers. This can cause a rumble in your pedal, and a brake pad replacement could be needed as well as a disk or rotor replacement.
