Is your universal joints out and that is where its rubbing?
running different size tires on a all wheel drive is a big mistake it can burn out the transfercase

My 99 accord ex is still making a squeaking noise when turning right sounds like metal hitting metal just replaced axle on that side passenger.


Have you inspected the brakes for wear? Possible backing plate rubbing on rotor. Possible wheel bearing on that side. Was the axle nut torqued to spec? This nut keeps proper pressure on the wheel bearing.

What is causing my explorer to **** & clunk with a loud grinding or rubbing noise when i turn corners?


Sounds like you have either ball joint issues, or problems with the CV joints. The other possibility is a problem in the transfer case causing the front axle to bind. You can physically look at the CV joint boots to see if they are torn open and many times you can grab onto the axle and give it a good tug to see if it will move..it should not.

Grinding noise....sounds like metal


Check the disk brake pads. At slower speeds you can hear them squeak because there is less wind and road noise. The other possibility could be a bad u joint at the ends of the axle half shafts on the front differential. Check both. I really doubt it is the transfer case. You transfer case is engaged all the time. The axle is locked and engaged when you flip the lever by a vacuum motor on the axle shaft on the differential.

After car wash, brakes made a screeching noise. How do I get rid of this? It sounds like metal rubbing against metal so I haven't moved it.


SOUNDS LIKE U HAVE METALLIC PADS. TOTALLY NORMAL. THE PADS WILL BED IN AND THE SCREECHING SOUND WILL GO AWAY. SUGGEST U GET A BETTER NON-METALLIC PAD INSTALLED IF U DON'T WANT TO HEAR SCREECHING NOISES EVERY TIME THE PADS GET WET. I'M ALSO ASSUMING U HAVE NO MORE THAN 50,000 MILES ON THE PADS AND THE PADS AND DISCS ARE IN GOOD SHAPE.
