What is happening? Squeeling and Grinding Drum(s)
When is it happening? Nearly everytime I brake
Hiya Guys. Recently had my front discs and pads replaced as they were badly worn. Got the car back and everything was cool. After a few days I noticed some squeeling from the brakes, I assumed it just needed some copper slip on them or something... it started to get annoying and I could also hear some sort of grinding noise which I swear came from the front passenger side wheel. So I took it back, the mechanic took the front wheels off did everything he could but couldnt find a fault. He said the pads came with Copper Slip, so it wasnt that, they was not warped etc...
So now a few days later (friday just gone) I braked when my stereo was off and the most awful grinding noise from the rear could be heard. I immediately thought rear drum. The noise was intermittant at first, but this morning its everytime I brake, even lightly.
I phoned mechanic and he will look at it on Weds. Im not sure what to expect.
So the questions are:
* Could it be the brake drum? Or something else?
* What are the internal workings of a drum? Im not sure how they work.
* What sort of price am I looking at for a drum?
* Would it be the drum that needs replacing or are there internal bits?
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
