Grinding Brakes

3 posts in this topic

My Focus has been making a grinding noise from the front brakes for a few weeks now.

Had it service today and had brakes checked and they found nothing wrong but still have the same noise.

Pads only 40% worn.

Any ideas ?

im assuming it only happens when the brakes are preswsed if it only does it a few times then its probably surface rust on the disk thats gathered overnight nothing unusual if its all the time you may have summat stuck under the pads check the disk for score marks

When you say the pads are only 40% worn, have you checked the pads to the inside of the disks? you could have a stickey piston causing uneven wear.
