Asked by Aug 17, 2013 at 12:55 PM about the 1998 Ford Ranger

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1998 Ford Ranger 4 cyl. Sometimes when i apply the brakes it makes a grinding
noise, like that of a pad rubbing on rotors. I have replaced the rotors and the pads, and
also the bearings. Yet it occasionally still does it. Has anyone heard of this, or know what
could be cause it?

If you replaced everything, recheck your work. When does it make the grinding noise? Only when you first start out?

It doesn't do it all the time, but every now and again when i apply the breaks i can feel it in the pedal and hear it as well. It doesn't have to be when i first start out, it is just random.
