04 Concorde front left wheel squeaks when turning braking and accelerating from stop?
I just had this problem and it was because I changed the brakes and the new rotors where touching the lower ball joint heat shield. I just had to take a screw driver and bend the metal heat shield just a little and the squeal went away

What causes your brakes to squeak when you turn the wheel in one direction but only after the truck has run for ten to fifteen minutes?
Answer . \nbrake pads may be glazed over due to excessive heat. try turning rotors as long as they are above discard specs.
Excluding the brakes why would a 92 Honda sometimes have a high pitch squeak when turning but not when turning the wheels when the car is stopped?
Bad wheel bearing if you are referring to a grinding noise. A squeak can be many things. Loose power steering belt for one.
When you turn left a small squeaking sound starts. When the wheel goes back right it stops. you have 2003 Saturn L 200 with 110 K on it and maintenance has been top notch.What could this be?
Answer . It sounds like worn brake pads. The brake pads have a small metal clip that protrude from the side and when they are worn they come in contact with the rotor which produces the sound that you described.
Could be the steering column spiral (the wire harness that's coiled up and includes wires that connect to the horn/cruise, etc.) needs to be replaced. Or the steering bolt needs lubrication.
Answer . I had a squeek in my left front wheel, everytime i went over a speed bump etc. Turned out it was a torn cv boot.If this is the case you need to replace it immediately or you will soon need a whole new axel.\n. \n. \nIt can be the rotors or break pads.
Answer . \nCould be a hub cap, in which case removing and driving will answer that. Better chance of a half shaft on it's way out. A half shaft runs between the transaxle and the wheel. On each end there is a constant velocity joint. The joints are each covered with a black bellow shaped boot… to protect the joint. Stick your snoot under the side that is making the noise and inspect the two boots. If you see grease flung out from the centrifical force, look closley at the boot(s) for a crack or tear in it. IF so, replace the halfshaft. While you can relace just the joint and boot, it is more costly, more of a pain in the butt and you still will only have one new joint. ( Full Answer )
What is the cause of a 99 Cavalier that makes a loud grinding-squeaking like noise when the wheel is turned to the right yet stops the moment the steering wheel is centered or to the left?
Answer . \nWithout seeing it , I will tell you that most of the time wheel noise that happens when you turn the wheel is due to a CV axle that is failing. Test is this way: go into a large vacant parking lot and turn the wheels to the right and go in reverse; is the noise worse? It may be if the …joint is bad.Usually a wheel bearing will make a low growling noise; but you called it a squealing noise. I hope this helps a little. ( Full Answer )
What is the ringing or squealing noise on a 99 Chevy suburban front left tire 4 wheel drive stops when you apply the brakes or drive faster?
Answer . Pull the tire and look at the disk brakes. GM uses a little piece of spring steel that makes contact with the rotor when the disk brake pads are worn out. It sounds like the wear indicator is giving you warning that the brakes need to be replaced. When you look at it, if the spring is co…ntacting the rotor, don't wait! just replace the brake pads now.

What might cause a low mileage 2005 Mazda 6 to squeak near the left front wheel while backing up and the steering wheel is turned to the left?
I have a 2003 Mazda 6 with approx 80k miles. This noise confounded me for months. On ours, it showed up when pulling into or out of our driveway (forward or reverse, always with the wheels turned hard left). It is NOT the CV joint in the axle. It is NOT anything rubbing in the fender well. It is N…OT the wheel bearings. I finally found it after we had the brakes done. After having the rotors turned and pads replaced, the noise went away for about a month. I thought we had licked it, but it came back. Then I found it. There is a thin brass (or maybe copper??) bracket that fits between the brake shoes and the caliper assembly. Supposedly this absorbs vibration and prevents the caliper assembly from wearing out around the brake shoes. It is held in place by small tabs that are supposed to hug both sides of the caliper assembly. Those tabs are very weak and as the brake shoes wear out and move closer to the rotor, the bracket tends to move with them (instead of staying in place on the assembly). So you end up with the thin, brass plate scrubbing against the rotor just like the wear warning tab would (and makes the exact same noise). Since it is such a close clearance, you only hear the noise when the wheel is torqued, but it will get more common as the problem goes on. The fix is easy. Remove the brake shoes, move the bracket back into it's correct place, and bend the retaining tabs back down. (While I had it apart, I went ahead and trimmed down the brass with a Dremmel so it would have more room to shift without rubbing the rotor.) It seems that getting new pads does not fix the problem because you don't get a new bracket with the pads. You buy some time because the new pads are thicker, but the noise will come back as the pads wear down. -- I honestly wouldn't know, but mine did the same thing then at about 30,000 miles it stopped and hasn't ever happened again, but use to do it all the time at about 20-28,000 miles wierd huh You may have a broken cv joint i had the same problem in one of my old cars. behind the brake assembly theres a rubber boot with a rod coming out, if that boot tears and dust gets inside it ruins the ball bearing joint..

What is wrong with your 98 Ford Escort Zx2 if the brakes squeak after you release after stopping and when slowing to a stop something near the wheels is grinding Replaced all wheel bearings?
Answer . \ni would say you need to replace brake pads and clean drums and rotors with a good brake cleaner, also if pads are of a metal compound, you will never stop then squeeking\nif they squeek when released i would check that brake calipres and cylanders are not sticking, which does not allo…w brakes to release properly ( Full Answer )
possible . \n. \n. \n. \nThe brake shoes may be about worn out. The wheel bearings need grease
Why does the car squeal or squeak from 0-10 MPH every time the wheels turn and when braking the squeal becomes lower pitched and drawn out?
Answer . Do you have excessively worn brake linings? Thanks for the suggestion! I considered it but thought the brake linings would only squeal when braking? What I'm experiencing happens while I'm on the gas. Please let me know if I am mistaken. Thanks!
Why does 2003 Envoy front end squeak when brakes applied and vehicle starts to slow to a stop and replacing front brakes did not fix it?
Answer . It depends on the quality of the brake pads that were installed. It could also be a "glazing" of the pads and rotors due to your personal braking tendencies. I.E. riding the brakes or braking very slowly and early at red lights.
Why does the driver's side front wheel squeak when you're driving and immediately stop when you brake?
Because your brakes, when applied, "straiten" the rotor (disk) from a cockeyed angle. To put it simply, your wheel bearings are worn and while driving, the rotor, wheel and tire are at a slight angle. The "wear indicators" (a small piece of metal attached to the pads on the top) built into the brake… pads are temporarily rubbing against the rotor. When you apply the brake, it temporarily returns the group back to where is should be as if it were new, stopping the indicators from touching the rotor. Thought i should add that if your wheel stops squeaking when you depress the pedal it is usually a sign of ball-bearing wear. The wheel will squeak through braking if the brakes are done, or worn.

Front wheel squeaks while driving When you press on the brakes you feel grinding Could it be the bearings It is a 2004 Chevy Monte Carlo?
Sounds like you need brakes. Have it looked at soon! Or maybe the fact its a Chevy that might be the problem
Why does the right front wheel squeak at a certain point each rotation particularly when turning right on a '93 metro Turning it doesn't make this noise when turning left?
you should stop driving this vehichle until it is fixed or resolved. You most likely are experiancing the arm support rusting out on the passanger side of car. Very common for these vehichles. It is getting ready to break. This is why it sqeaks. it is moveing. If this breaks while you are driving 30… - 45 - 55 or at any speed. You have NO control and are going to crash into whatever is in your way. I would seriously stop driving it. This happened to me, I was fortunate I was doing 5 mph while turning off highway. I was able to weld it all back up, and is a daily driver.. Dont chance it, get it fixed. ( Full Answer )
The most common cause for a squeaking noise when turning thesteering wheel on any vehicle, including a 2001 Toyota Avalon, isthe belt that runs the power steering pump. If the belt is fairlynew, a small drop of any dish soap on the belt while the car isrunning will clear up the noise. If the belt is… worn, it needs tobe replaced. ( Full Answer )
Moaning or roar at front of my awd vehicle that stops if you turn wheels to left and I am thinking that there must be a problem with the right wheel bearing?
Sounds very much like bearing. If you jack it up and while holding wheel at 12 and 6 o'clock , try moving . On mine I had felt slight play and I was able to have it replaced under the drive line warranty .
Try checking the power steering fluid. My taurus did the same thing until i filled the power steering fluid.
Mainly its because of warn down break pads, they have built in 'squeakers' to warn the driver they need replacing. usually quite loud especially when turning corners. new pads can also squeak they just need time to wear in, check if your pad has copper grease on the back aswell, this helps. or if… you've used 'back to black' etc on your tires and got some on your disks, that squeaks. wheels can also squeak from lose wheel nuts strangely enough, i had this problem when getting new alloys and not fitting them properly.

Does this squek vary with speed? When stopped and turning right does it squeak? More info is needed
When I drive my 1994 Toyota Camry I hear a squeaking noise in the left wheel and when I push the brake what could be the problem?
If there is a squeaky noise coming from any of your wheels and from pressing on the brakes, then I am supposing that there is something wrong with your brakes. From my past experiences with squeaky noises coming from my wheels, I got it checked out by a mechanic and he said that my brakes were worn …out to the point where I was going to lose brake control in the wheels that were squeaking. I would suggest you get your squeaky wheel and brakes checked out by a mechanic. You might have to only change the brakes if its not too serious. I wish you the best of luck! ( Full Answer )
What is causing a squeaking noise at low speed on a front wheel at low speed knowing that the brakes are find and the noise occurs when turning the wheel by hand?
Its Your CV Joint Or Your Wheel Bearing ........... if it is your cv joint you will hear the knocking or clicking sound especially whilst turning corners.xxxx
get your breaks checked.. they do that to tell you to replace them.. if you just got them they are prob. good but put in a little bit wrong so that the sensor lies and says to replace them.. But for safety check them soon as possible..
This could be a number of things. If the sqeeking happens when braking, then you probably need brakes. If it happens while driving, accelerating and turning then it could be the belt that is making noise. This can be due to a loose belt, worn tensioner or power steering fluid low or power steering i…ssue. ( Full Answer )
Use a vegetable oil to grease the wheel. Something like olive oil, canola oil, etc will work fine, as it greases the wheel, but will not hurt the rat when it licks it.
What could cause squeaking or creaking from the front right of a car while accelerating when the steering wheel is in a specific position?
More info: Sound appears when the steering wheel is held in specific positions and the car is accelerated (sweet spots - so much as 5 degrees clockwise, 30 degrees, etc.) but still persists (for a few seconds) if the wheel is held in the sweet spot and there is no acceleration. Can 'feel' the… car kind of straining when this occurs relative to when it's not there, like when turning left. There is *no* sound / creaking if the car is parked, only when in motion. The sound is not brake-related squealing. It's like a rusty spring mattress being jumped on. It is not power steering fluid related insofar as cranking the wheel to either side does not produce the knocking sound. Doesn't seem brake related, as a brake inspection was performed, quite literally, today. ( Full Answer )
Bad brake pads (wear indicator rubbing rotor), brake pads not retracting and rubbing rotor, or bad wheel bearings. You need to have this looked at before possible great damage is done.
\nIt can be a bent or loose wheel, or a defective CV joint on FWD vehicles. This can be very serious, so have it repaired ASAP.
\nCould be many things, such as as wheel bearing or tire, but most often it is the little warning clip rubbing on the rotor indicating that your brake pads are worn.
If this happens while moving then my first guess would be that your tire is either under-inflated and/or it is rubbing on your wheel arch.
It may be a sign that one of your constant velocity (CV) Joints needs lubrication or is failing.
The power steering fluid might be low. Add some power steering fluid to see if that helps. The power steering fluid chamber is under the hood. It might also be the belt that drives the power steering pump. There are products to lubricate belts and quiet them down. These are available, as is the powe…r steering fluid, from a good auto supply store. Or you could have a shop top off your fluid and put on a bit of the "belt quiet" stuff. ( Full Answer )
Many brake pads have a "warning indicator" which will squeak when the brake pads start to get near the end of their life. This "warning indicator" is usually nothing more than a small metal tab that protrudes out from the side of the pads backing plate pointing towards the brake rotor. As the pad we…ars, the distance between the metal tab and the brake rotor begins to shorten until a point is reached where the metal tab actually comes in contact with the break rotor. This causes the squeak as a warning to the driver that the break pads are low. ( Full Answer )
high pitched squeal from left front wheel does not stop when I apply the brakes. It will stop when I turn the steering wheel even a little bit but returns when I straighten out again
Could be several different reasons. The tire is under-inflated. The power steering fluid is low The tire is rubbing against the frame The ball joints need grease Any one of these could make it squeak
Most likely it is low power steering fluid. Check fluid and see if noise goes away.
The engines timing could be advanced to much. If it's a front wheel drive a CV joint could be going bad. Knowing a more precise area of where the sound is coming from might help to identify the problem.
Why does my Jeep Wrangler front left wheel squeak when in motion only when the wheel is turned to either right or left even just a little and it is not the brakes?
could be a bearing? were the brakes inspected very closely? it sounds like a feeler tab on a brake pad is just touching the rotor barely. This can happen even though the brakes are say 30% visually estimated remaining. Spin the LF wheel as hard as you can with it up on a jack and see if you can hear… the noise. If the noise is in the rotating moving assembly for sure.... That's bearing or brakes! Unless the squeak you are describing is a dry front end part like a ball joint.....Take it to a front end shop if nothing else is found wrong and pay the small diag fee to find out, then get 2 or 3 estimates. Ask about parts warranties too, don't let the cheap price fool you. Some parts are plastic inside and some a brass, lifetime warranty, the best. Also check the thin metal backing plate behind the rotor, it may be touching the rotor as it spins around, it should be about a pinky finger away from the back side of the rotor. Advise if you find more. ( Full Answer )
The squeaking is caused by friction between two objects that only contact each other during the turning motion of the car - in this case, in the leftward direction. This is an easy fix - stop doing it.
Well if it is something that gets louder or more noticeable the more you turn the wheel, there's a good chance it's you power steering pump. Check the level of your power steering fluid and fill it to the proper level with the appropriate fluid. (some manufacturers say to use power steering fluid, s…ome say A.T.F. automatic transmission fluid) but it should say right on the cap of the power steering fluid reservoir. If you can't find it go to the nearest auto parts store and someone there should be able to show you which one it is. ( Full Answer )
If they believe that your brakes are unsafe, they can stop you and force you to get an inspection. I don't think that they legally have a leg to stand on ticketing you for your brakes being loud. On another note, if your brakes are squealing, odds are that you need new pads and if you wait too long,… you will need rotors as well. Change them before it costs you more. ( Full Answer )
What would cause a loud winding noise only on the left front side and will stop if you turn the wheel to the left but then comes back when you straighten the wheel back up of a 2002 Saturn?
When the disk brake pads wear down the "sensor" touches the rotor, causing a high-pitched sound to warn you that it's time to service the brakes. If the sound changes when you apply the brakes, you should have the brakes checked. You may need to replace the pads.
The problem is most likely a loose belt, this will happen when steering piston and pump is under a load as in turning. More torque is required to spin pulley.
could be the power steering belt, axle going bad. power steering pump it self could also be bad.
It sounds like your CV (Constant Velocity) joints are worn and need to be replaced
I been having this troublle for about 3 months it annoys me everytime I drive the van , the first thing in my mind is the brake pad, second the wheel hub. So bought this two parts before pulling down just in case. I take off the two bolts holding the caliper to get get access to the brake pad and tr…y to clean it first, I notice that there are foreign particle in between the groove of the pad so I carefully cleaned two pad with the tip of a file, I assembled it and try to drive around and whalla no more squeaking. Could also be the brake "squealer" is telling you that the brake pads are worn down and in need of attention. Usually a sign that the "wear indicators" are rubbing against the rotor (as designed) to let you know that brake pads need replacement ( Full Answer )
That usually means that your brake pads are so worn that a metal part of the pad assembly is coming in contact with the rotor. Some brake pads have a "feeler" built in that causes you to hear a squeak when your pads are getting low without actually damaging the rotor. If your pads are digging into y…our rotors, you can usually have the rotors machined at least once without replacing them, as long as the gouge is not too deep. ( Full Answer )
