2001 Volkswagen Jetta Question: Brakes Make Grinding Noise

 

Question

Visitor, 2.0L 4 Cylinder, Baltimore, MD, March 23, 2011, 05:05

Everytime I brake, I hear this grinding noise and then when I release the brake slowly, I hear it again. Now my question is should I get my brakes checked out as soon as possible or is it just fine for now? Because it seem to do that for a while and nothin was wrong with my brakes.

    You need to get your brake checked as soon as possible. Grinding can lead to more damage and a more expensive repair bill.

    I had my 2005 Toyota Corolla brake pad changed recently. Following that service my car developed grinding noise each time I released barake. It is getting worse and the guys at the service couldnot find a fault. I am taking there again....I do hope the fault lies in the way the brake pad was fitted.
