Whenever my pads get worn to the half way point, I begin to hear a grinding sound from the left brake assy(sounds/feels like front , but may be rear ). I inspect and there is no sign of scraping. What could this be? I always replace the pads prematurely so that I dont have to hear the grinding. In fact I replaced the fronts in March(rear pads/rotors last year sometime) and now the grinding has returned. The rears rotors were NOT smooth when replaced. They were "scored" as if in need of turning. I believe that a turning would probably correct the problem, but its my understanding that MB does not recommend turning these rotors. Any fixes anyone
