I just replaced my brakes 1000 miles ago i started hearing this grinding noise from the front at about 500 miles i inspected and lightly roughned the surface of the new rotor the noise went away and now at 1000 miles it came back even worse i checked it out nothing looks wrong it sounds like metal to metal i cant figure it out the pads are semi metalic would that have any thing to do with it it also pulls a little to the side that makes more noise only sometimes it pulls HELP! any ideas I love my car i dont want to get rid of it.

You may have a piston that's not pushing out as far as it ought to and not pressing on the pad evenly. <br>Did you bleed the brakes? Inside bleeder first, outside second.
