View Full Version : Grinding noise occasionally on front passenger rotor

Sometimes when I am coming to a stop, I can hear/feel my front passenger side brake pad and rotor grind. Then when I start to accelerate I can hear it grind every time it passes a certain point on the rotor.. The noise which is a quick grind, speeds up as my mph speeds up.

I'm thinking a warped rotor?

You need brakes, sounds like it's scraping the wear sensor, or worse...grinding metal to metal.

Ya I thought the wear sensor was alil more high pitched, it sounds like metal to metal. But I thought I would of hit the wear sensor first.

Some pads do not have wear sensors on them. Get the wheel off and get a better view. The brake dust thrown by the backing plates of brake pads can ruin the wheel's finish (the metal shards coat the wheel, then rust...turning the wheel orange/rust colored)

No problem. Diagnosing brake issues is routine for me. lol
