Loud Grinding Noise when Braking

If you heard a loud grinding noise when braking while depressing the brake pedal, it indicates worn out brake lining that’s rubbing against the vehicle disc or drum. You may have been ignored your brake too long that’s why you do not know that it had been worn out, up until you notice a grinding sound while braking. If it’s ignored for a longer time it could be costly to repair it.

To fix the problem, first replace the brake linings, then depending on the damage, based on the advice of your mechanic, if it is extreme replace the disc or drums, if its not, the discs or drums must be machined in order to smooth out the damage caused by the worn out linings, repair only the affected portion where the grinding sound is coming (front or rear).
