Just had the front axles replaced on my 2001 passat 1.8L after about a day or so I noticed that there was a loud whirring noise coming from the passenger side front end wheel.

Wheel bearing ? ... Cars & Trucks

Grinding noise, metal to metal noise in front end. It's not a wheel bearing or brake problem. It sounds like it is on the drivers side in the front end. Is it the differential? High speed shaft?


Get your truck up in a rack and take a look at the drive shaft, the differential, the u joints and the ball joints. Regards, joe ... 2005 Chevrolet Silverado

05 Saturn Vue, 58K miles, All of a sudden steering wheel, brake pedal and front end of car shake/vibrate with medium to heavy braking. On cool morning not noticable, but after driving and braking a bit, signs start to show up. Also, pulls left when braking firmly. Trusted and knowledgeable mechanic says rotors and pads look good with about another 5K on pads. Long trip coming up, Tampa, FL. to Boston, Mass., so would like to regain auto confidence. Thanks


Have your rotors refaced or turned lay are out of round and have the right front caliber replaced or unstick it.That pull to the left means that the left caliber is getting more pressure then the right causing it to pull left. ... 2004 Saturn VUE

Grinding front end when I brake on my 01 lincoln navigator


This sounds like a definite case of worn brake pads. They might have previously fitted pads with soft linings for better stopping power and if your truck is automatic the pads wear down faster on automatics than manual.Ask them to fit pads with harde ... 2001 Lincoln Navigator

I have a periodic grinding noise in the front end of my 4-wheel drive while riding down the road not using the brakes. It is metal on metal and comes and goes. Mechanic cannot find anything wrong. Gets worse as I turn to right and it can be felt in the steering column some. Sounds like when brake pads are worn out but not the brakes.

Hotmaimy 2001 buick la sabrer in the morning when I first back up has a growling or grinding noise. It has been getting louder and louder. sounds like coming from the back end. took it to the mechanic who checked the brakes said backs were fine but changed the front brakes and roder saying they were a little thin. Still the noise. took back to mechanic who took the back brakes apart and can find nothing wrong and doesn't know what the noise is. Help.


Did the technician check the rear axle bearings for excessive play or the source of the noise when he checked the rear brakes if this was not checked properly you may have a bad bearing that is making the noise. ... 2001 Buick LeSabre

Brakes When pushing the brake to stop there is a grinding sound coming from the front. I checked the brake pads and there is still pad on them, however when I run my finger on the rotor, it is very rough. I'm guessing I need to change the rotors out. Is this an accurate guess on my end?


If the rotor has been ground and is rough you need pads also... Get new rotors and pads too. ... Cars & Trucks

Brake problem I just got new disc brakes and pads put on the front of my 1997 Ford Escort LX at the end of July. I was told I would need calipers, too by my friend who was a mechanic for 10 years and he said I would be fine for awhile without the new calipers because I didn't have the money at the time. It is now September 2nd and now I hear a faint grinding sound and I'm not sure where it's coming from. I already had the rear brakes, rotors and calipers done. What do you think I may be hearing?


You could have some trash between the rotor and the dust shield, or worse, a bearing going bad. The rear bearings are not hard to replace, but the front ones are a chore. ... 1997 Ford Escort

My front left wheel is making 'scraping' sounds, as if the brake pads are worn down and are 'scraping' but every once in a while there is a grinding sound. Have taken brakes off and they are good, but there are tiny metal looking shavings inside the wheel.

Front end is making a metalic (rubbing-grinding-clicking) sound when driving - this doesn't affect the brakes (I had the brakes looked at not long ago). Does the 03 Denali have issues with bearings? Note: This sound is not consistant with speed (not with the wheels).

ABS light & trak off light keep coming on. Grinding noise & vibration can be felt on brake peddle. Brakes have been checked. Wheel bearing was replaced on drivers side. Sometimes making a pulsing sound,in front end left side, like something is trying to run.


It sounds like "False Antilock Mode" to me. Your Antilock Brake Control Module "thinks" that you have a wheel locking up. This is probably caused by a bad wheel sensor. You need to scan the module to find out which one. ... 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix
