Hi there. Unfortunately, we don’t offer repair services on Vauxhall Mokka models or provide services outside of the United States at this time. You might find it helpful to contact a professional mechanic in your area to inspect your vehicle. However, in general, on most cars and trucks, when you hear a grinding noise on your vehicle, it’s an indicator of brake pads that are worn out. If the brakes are new, it’s possible that mud or other debris is trapped inside the brake rotors and pads which is causing the noise.
