Question about 2000 Subaru Outback

Sound when braking hard

I recently bought a 2000 Subaru Outback; when I brake hard, there is a sound - almost a grinding sound - that comes from the front of the car. I had the brakes checked, and the front were ok, and I had the rear pads replaced. I did not get the brakes bled, nor did I have the brake fluid changed. What would you suggest?

If the front brakes were ok, I would have a look at a possible wheel bearing problem. Does the problem change noises at different speeds or is the problem only heard when breaking.

Screeching metallic noise front wheel


Look for brake pads grinding the brake rotor. It could be the "screamer" which is a small metal part that contacts the brake rotor telling you the pads are worn. Hopefully it hasn't ruined the brake rotor.

2000 Subaru Outback When turning at low speeds and accelerating at low speeds, I sometimes get a metallic grinding noise. I don't hear any noise at highway speeds. What is the problem?


Sounds like your CV half shaft is has gone bad. More than likely when you look behind your front wheels you will see a rip or hole in the CV boot. You will need to replace the CV joint to fix this. Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!

The ABS,Brake Light,Battery light go on and off sporadically while driving.Does this indicate an Alternator failure or a sensor/computer problem?


yes it's most likely a alternator problem,usually the internal diode bridge breaks causing all lights you mentioned to come on,if this happens at a idle open the hood and remove green connector on alt.if lights go out you've found the problem

1998 Subaru Outback Wagon Grinding Noise/Squeaky Brake/Gas Gauge


The first issue, I would have the brake calipers checked for either a pin stuck or one of the pistons stuck, It is a dual piston caliper and sometimes one will stick causing pad to angle slightly. While inspecting the brake issue also check your wheel bearings, which may be the squeak. On the fuel issue, I will tell you a secret, LOL, but Subaru has set the fuel gauge to read E but still have about 5 gallons of fuel left. I use US measurements, but trying to use my head I believe you are getting about 22-24 MPG from what you said and that is pretty good. I hope this helps a bit and have a great day.
