Possibly wheel bearing, brakes, CV joints. These vehicles are noted for creeking tie rod ends. Greasable replacements are available. Another possibility: I replaced perfectly good brake pads on my 2001 only to find the grinding was still there! :( The true cause: bad rotors! I did not bother with a resurfacing to see if that would resolve it - just did replacements.
Check the front brakes. the most common problem for grinding is worn brake pads allowing the metal backer to rub the rotor.
i have a grinding noise on the front left wheel. i have taken the calipa off and i have one brake pad that is shot. could it be that or can it still be the bearing. how can i find out.
Diod you check front brake pads
The grinding noise is the brakes pads proably the noise is in the front. The front brake pads are easy to replace and is a do it yourself sort of thing. My guess is your brake light is coming on because of this condition. I assume your brake light has been coming on for a little while now.
possibly brake pads worn down
It depends on where the grinding noise is coming from. Most of the time the grinding is coming from the brakes and the brake pads need to be replaced. If they've been grinding for a while, the rotors will need to be resurfaced or replaced. Other possibilities for grinding are worn axle bearings, or a problem with the clutch. If the clutch goes out, there will be a grinding noise when you try to shift gears.
Front grinding could be a bad wheel bearing or in the front axle assembly.
the noise could be coming from either a bad wheel bearing or something wrong in front axle.
New CV joints will fix the grinding noise
Its hard to say... do u know where the noise is coming from?
Hi, the grinding noise coming from the rear brakes is either the shoes have worn out & are down to the metal, or the drums havn't been removed for a long time and are full of brake dust / rust etc.
Could be the brakes are gone or it could be a hub and bearing assembly about to fall off the front of your car.
if its when you are breaking it is possible it could be a rotor if you hear like a roaring or grinding noise coming from that side also could be a wheel bearing
A grinding noise usually indicated bad wheel bearings.
replace hub or wheel bearings.
A small child
A Clicking or grinding noise coming from the front end. The best way to test your CV joints is to drive backwards in a tight circle (wheel completely cranked) you should be able to tell which side the noise is coming from if it is bad.
97 grand am rubbing/grinding noise from right front that is not wheelbearing or brakes
not sure sound like it comes from front suspension
sounds like the brake pads in front or back are worn out, if so need to change them before driving.
The grinding noise in the front of a 1990 Dodge Caravan could be a cv joint. If it is, it probably only grinds when you take a sharp turn. There is one located on each side.
i have heard that noise and I believe it is coming from the body frame connection and i also heard that u can get a kit to eliminate the noise. Ed
Bearing going bad?
