After hearing/feeling a grinding noise when I hit my brakes at very low speed, I took off the tires to take a look at the pads. They both still got some pad left but, they're wearing unevenly. What could cause this?
Lots of stuff. If the inside pad is worn it's the piston
sticking. if the outside pad is worn it's the sliders sticking. What do the pads look like ? Master cylindar could make this happen. Proportioning valve can do this.
How are they worn ? At an angle ? No angle ? twisted ?
off center ? Need more info. If you heard noise it's metal
to metal or road grime.
I was going to change the front pads but upon removing the wheels I realized there was nothing wrong with the old pads. There's plenty of pad left. Again, it only happens at very low speeds.(I live in a mobile home park replete with speed bumps. If one sneaks up on me, I brake hard. That's when it usually happens)As of the moment, I do not sense any imminent danger. I'll keep a close eye on the situation.
Damp weather can cause this.Rotors and drums rust overnight and can cause all kinds of sounds.
