My rear brakes. Are grinding only one side
My car has an automatic transmission.
If only one of your brake pads is grinding, this may suggest that you have a braking imbalance at one of the wheels. This may be caused by a collapsed or faulty brake line or otherwise lack of hydraulic pressure getting to one of the brake calipers. When this happens, this means that one of the brake calipers is doing it’s job at normal or full capacity in terms of stopping power and the other is not. This may cause the vehicle to pull to the side that is working properly since this side is exerting more stopping power than the other side. I would recommend having an expert from Your Mechanic come to your home to diagnose your brake system to properly repair your brakes.
