I have a 2006 Cobalt sedan 2.2 litre. When I apply the the brakes I get a rrrr grinding type noise. The brakes seem to work OK but this noise worries me. The noise seems to be coming from the front en
As stated above the noise seems to come from the front end. I have front
discs and rear drums. The car has just under 70,000 km and I have never had
any brake work done. When I bought it, it had about 55,000 km on it.
Sounds like you need front brake pads and possibly rotors. Have a look at the rear brakes as well. If they've stopped working due to faulty automatic adjusters the front pads will wear out prematurely. HTH. -Jim
Agree. Sounds like you need front pads. If you get on it right away that's probably all you need. Leave it much longer though and you'll need rotors too.
I appreciate the advice given to me. I'll have those brakes checked as soon as possible.
