Car Mechanic Repairing Brakes
Why are your brakes making a grinding noise? Well, you’ll want to find out as soon as you can – otherwise, you risk an accident on Kansas City roads. Learn more about brake sounds here at Lee's Summit Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram.

1. Your Brake Pads are Worn Out.

Your brakes may make a grinding noise because the brake pads are worn out. Failure to get your brake pads replaced in a timely and efficacious manner could result in your brake rotors becoming damaged or even ruined – in which case you’ll have a more expensive repair on your hands.

2. You Bought Cheap Brake Pads.

Your brakes may be making weird sounds because your brake pads are cheap. Possibly your car is used, or possibly you’ve used aftermarket brake pads rather than Mopar® brake pads. Instead of cutting corners now, it’s a wiser idea to invest in warrantied Mopar® brake pads in order to ensure quality performance and durability on Kansas City roads.

3. Something’s Caught in the Brakes.

Another common cause for your brakes making a grinding sound is that there’s something stuck in the brakes. This could be a rock or stick between the rotor or caliper, or salt, sand, or ice between the pads and the rotors. Make sure to have any objects removed in order to avoid damage to your brakes.
