We really aren't sure what is causing it but it sounds like you have hit the key when the vehicle is already running. That's the type of horrible grinding sound. It doesn't happen all the time and only happens when we leave the house in the morning. Back out of the driveway (no sound) put it in drive and there it is (again not all the time) hit the brakes a few times and it seems to go away. At first we thought a stone or something had gotten stuck between the pad and the rotor but that would be a one time thing. It's not the warning clip sound and there is no scoring on the rotor. The sound happens with and with out the brake applied but applying the brake several times does make it go away. Like I said it isn't a everyday thing either. Any ideas?
