    easy solution, pull the damn wheel and check it out for yourself, it will be a much better answer for you than us guessing at it from a limited description...

    Um...ok so because you let someone learn manual on your car they fucked up your brakes? :hmm:

    If the pads are grinding, you need to replace them. What is that? 50 bucks if that for a good set of replacement pads?

    those cheap autozone pads with the lifetime warranty will eat your rotors

    I learned that the hard way

    Hmm I've never had a problem and I live 15 miles up a nice steep mountain road, and have exchanged them 4 times now...maybe its cause I bought the semi-matallics which are a bit more expensive
