Answers :

While you were changing your pads, did you inspect your brake rotors? If you did you probably would have found that the old pads had worn grooves into the rotors. So now your rotors are wearing grooves into your new pads. You need to see if there is enough material left on your rotors to have them turned. If not you need to replace your rotors and of course your new pads should also be replaced again.
Something is not on right, remove the wheel that is noisy andc heck your work.

I had new brake pads and rotors put on my 2005 equionox...now I am getting a grinding noise (intermitently) when making a final stop at a light or stop sign. Sometimes it feels like it's not stopping properly. This seems to be effecting just the one front tire. I've had the car back several times and last week they put on new brake pads (said the other ones were defective)...well now the grinding sounds is back and I'm confused.


May be the grade of pad that was used in replacement,Would find out if ceramic brake pad is available for this vehicle.They usually cost a little more but provide better perfomance typically less noise issues and create less brake dust. ... 2005 Chevrolet Equinox

ABS problem every time I step on the brake on the bumpy road, ABS light comes on and start acting up by making vibrated noise and brake pedal actually pushes back towards me, which I can not be able to stop immediately. I almost hit cars in front of me many times. Mechanics were not able to detect ABS problem. They said it might be the ABS control unit. Please help! Thank you for your support.

I have a 2002 Trailblazer that has a grinding noise in the right front. It starts to shudder for a few seconds and makes a louder grinding noise at the same time. The 4 times that it has happened in the last 2 days, I pulled over because I was scared to keep driving. After I stopped for a minute, the problem went away. The shudder starts when I am normally going straight. There is a slight grinding noise when I drive though now. I just had my right front hub bearing replaced a week ago. Thanks f


Abby, I'd look to the place that replaced that expensive bearing assembly. That's the first thing I'd do. The other possibilities could be serious problems, especially if it's 4x4. We don't even want to go there. That possibility would be a shrea ... 2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

On April 29, 2011, a clacking sound started coming from the area of my right front passenger side tire. The noise from the right front passenger sided starts the clacking noise every time I make a right or left turn and when I take off from stop. This noise continues until my speedometer gets between 25 mph and 30 mph when it makes a light clicking sound for a few seconds and then stop. The clacking or clicking sounds goes completely away when I am traveling @ 35 mph and above. 2 guys who work

My 2000 Dodge Caravan mini van makes loud grinding noise when turning and continues while driving straight. This noise happens every now and again while simply braking.

What is this grinding sound? It happens at all different speeds.

Im getting like a grinding thumping noise up front of my 2004 Silverado. The grinding is louder when I go into my 4x4. It seems to be the worst when Im turning slightly left. It started out making the noise only once in a while, Now its becoming more consistant. Is it the axel, or the bearing in the front differential? I dont know.

2009 RX 350 is making a loud grinding sound when I accelerate, then it goes away. The noise appears to come from the front right wheel area. I have AWD. It especially happens while driving up a hill. I've taken it in 2 times and no one can reproduce the sound, which is strange because it make the noise every time I drive the car. There are 46,000 miles on the car and it's occurred since I brought it home (34,000 miles).

My 1996 Toyota Corolla makes an inconsistant noise during braking right before a complete stop. The noise is squeeky and loud. I removed both front tires and performed a visual inspection of the brakes, rotors and suspension. I found that both C.V. axles had excessive rotational reeplay were they go into the transmission. I also found that both front sway bar bushings were extremely drie-rotted and the sway bar can be moved by hand. Is this normal for the C.V. axles to have alot of freeplay? And


Yes it can it's over 10 years old. ... 1996 Toyota Corolla

Hear a grinding noise from the right front wheel when I make left turn (mostly). Noise has now progressed to anytime the wheel is in motion. Also hear squeeking sound (ball bearing possibly?). I've changed the front brakes and had the rotor sanded to remove slickness (not technical term) thinking that was the cause of the grinding - no help. Could it be the ball bearing?


You should definitely pull the front wheel and check the bearings (they are roller bearings, not ball bearings). With the wheel off, you should be able to isolate where the noise is coming from, but I vote for the bearings. Check, replace and/or re ... 2000 Nissan Maxima

The problem is that every time I start my car and begin to accelerate, reverse, brake or whatever, generally about 3 seconds after I do this the car makes a sound and slightly jolts. When it does this, my headlights dim and my radio will shut off but then restart itself and the two lights, the emergency brake light and anti-lock brake light will turn on. So, if I drive with these lights on, my car makes a high pitched grinding noise when I accelerate. Generally I have to restart my car to make t

On my 2006 Buick Rendezvous there is a grinding noise when braking to a quick stop. The noise is only at the end of the braking time and does not seem to affect the effectiveness of the brakes..

My f150 5.4 triton problem is when I barke every so often the the brake pedal from the booster makes a squeegy sound of noise every time I apply the brakes. and if I hold the brakes at a stop and push down on the brakes harder the pedal goes down to the floor further than it should. I got a booster from the savage yard and put it on without taking the master cylinder off to keep from loosing prime and it is still doing the same thing as the last booster. Could it be the ABS or just a falty boost


Not booster or master- you need to bleed brake fluid from each wheel cyclinder- you have an air bobble somewhere ... 2005 Ford F-150

Screeching noise While driving my front right tire/wheel area starting screeching loudly, the noise would only happen while I was moving and was unchanged whether I had the brakes applied or not, or had the clutch engaged or not. When I turned the steering wheel all the way one direction something thumped softly, and now it's not making the noise. I took off my wheel and can't find any signs of grinding or scoring anywhere on the suspension or brake rotor. I'm inexperienced and have suspicion
