Default could it be the brakes?

So, I have this new grinding noise from the rear at slow speeds. I think it's the brakes. Do the rear brakes on the 2000-2004 models have the wear indicators (hopefully) or is that a completely worn pad that's grinding metal to metal?!? Or, I suppose it could also be a sticky caliper, but I doubt it, coming from the sound of things...

Yeah, they have wear indicators, should be on the inside pad on only one wheel...at least it was on mine.

I had the grinding noise coming from my rear wheels...i took off the pads...even tho they looked unevenly worn...i put it all together back with the anti-squeek lube and its gone! Try taking it off and putting it back on before purchasing new parts. Oh yeah and try sliding your calipers with ur hand maybe the pins are stuck.

That was my experience with our civic as well - it's just on one side. It's not so much a squeak as a groan.

Yeah, not so much a squeak, but more like a high-pitched metal to metal grind. I'll take apart the rear brakes next week if I have time. They have over six years and 80k miles on them and are still the original rears...

This happened with me. Inside rear on the right side was toast.
