Check to see what condition thepads in the rear are. It could be a buildup of rust causing this as well. If you see score marks on the rotors or if drums have the brakes replaced int eh back or you can go to the site hereon DIY and it covers brakes front and rear.

If you hear grinding sounds when you apply the brakes:
* The most common cause for this condition is when the lining has worn past its service limit and the metal plate is contacting the rotor.
* Some drivers may experience a grinding noise only when the pedal is slightly applied and the vehicle is moving very slow (such as slightly releasing the pedal from a stop position). This operation is normal.
