There is an awful grinding sound in the front right brake of my car while pressing the brake pedal. After pressing the brake, sometimes there will be a metal noise when the tire is spinning (while not pressing on the brake). This started happening after not driving the car for a short period of time (about a week).
My car has 129000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi there. The vehicle sitting only week, should not have caused a grinding noise from the right front wheel upon brake apply. I would assume, the right front brake pads are touching metal to metal. Continued driving will cause the brake rotor requiring replacement rather than machining. There may be, a brake caliper issue if just the right side brake pads are worn out. Brakes are a safety concern and should be diagnosed sooner, than later. I recommend having your vehicle’s right front grinding noise be diagnosed and repaired by a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic.
