Customer Question
I gave a gronding...

I gave a gronding noise in yhe front left side only when firmly brake and only after car warms up

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

Only after driving for about 20 25 minutes sounds like front left side

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mazda?

2008 tribute

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Tribute yourself? What have you tried so far?

All we did was check the pads and they have 50% left and no score on rotor

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Have you pulled the wheels off and inspected yet?

just the fronts and pads are good and no knicks or scoring on the rotors
Mazda Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

sorry this question didnt pop back up on my screen until now, have you inspected the wheel bearing? does it make noise when driving side to side sharply at 40 mph or more?

Only the noise comes when braking and only when you are finally stopping and only after the vehicle warmsvup
Mazda Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

could be something in the pad material, I would try resurfacing the rotors and scuffing up the pads and then test drive again
