Scratchy Brakes

Hey guys, is it common for the front brake(only one) to sound like its scratching(not squealing/whining)when braking softly and when hitting bumps?

The pads are just standard honda pads and have always squealed when stopping but lately the left front pad scratches and squeals. It sounds like its cutting through my rotor haha, but I still have plenty of pad left.

Has anyone else run into this problem or know anything about it. I feel like it could be from hitting all those damned pot holes this winter, cause its only on one side.

It sounds to me like the inside pads have completely worn out, the outside ones may look fine, but you might have to jack the car up and look inside the wheels for the inside pads to make sure that they still have plenty life left in them. Double check to make sure!

The second thing I can think of is that you can try opening or realigning and tapping the dust shield because you might have something sticky or a huge rock stuck under there. Please confirm if you checked so we know not to ask you to do the same thing twice
