    I have a similar sound coming from the right front wheel of an 87 Jetta. I thought it was brake related as it seems to be noticable after letting off the brakes. replaced calipers and it still makes kind of a grinding noise when the wheel turns sometimes more or less noisy as you drive.

I'm having trouble with my brakes for a 1993 cutlass ciera s and lately I been hearing a rubbing and grinding noise coming from my rear brakes could anyone tell me what kind of problem this is ?


My first question would be have you taken the drums off and looked at the brake shoes yet ?
You won't know whats going on until you do.
It could be worn out shoes, or a broken spring rubbing the drum, or any number of things.

Will the front driveshaft cause humming if it is free wheeling


The noise your hearing is most likely a hub bearing It will look like axle shaft is moving because the bearing is what the axle sits into if the noise changes when driving and turn wheel to left and right if so if you turn left and noise changes then your right frt bearing is bad and vise a versa.

My Chevy Equinox 2005 is making a noise when I turn left or right. the noise comes from the front wheels. I was trying to find where to put power steering fluid, which I could not find. What should I do?


depends on the noise , I know that sounds silly, but it works,, is the noise your hearing a clicking sound as you turn? if so, its the CV axles going out ,, From your info I don't know if you have the all wheel drive or just the front wheel drive, but if you hear clicking, its CV joints going bad, Now if what your hearing is a squealing noise, that would be the power steering pump, look at where your fan belt is and what all it drives,, one of those will be your power steering pump, some models have the fill tube for them right on the unit itself, and others have a off pump location for filling, however your year happens to be the a first generation and they used electronic power steering, and naturally you need to have it dealer checked

Scraping noise


Have your brakes checked. It seems like your brake pads are extremely low.

1994 Integra RS front end noise?


Without hearing noises first hand it is very hard to diagnose.

Things to check from the description you gave:

- Heatshields/Exhaust
- Thow-out bearings will make noise depending on the clutch pedal being engaged/disengaged. The noise will come and go as you move the pedal in or release it.

I would rule out the CV joints if the noise happens while moving straight. CV joints will click while turning when they go bad.

Hearing noises


That is what is called your CV joint. They are notorious for making "knuckling" sounds when turning a corner. They are not very expensive, however it does require that you take the suspension and brake hardware loose in order to get it out.

You have 2 "half axle(s)", each half axel has 2 CV joints. One half axle goes to each front wheel on front wheel drive cars. You could do it yourself, however if you are not competent it would be best to take it to a shop.

I would recommend getting both half axles replaced.

Breaking noise in the front wheel


it could be the joint in the c/v axle. or it could be that you have something loose in the steering linkage. i would not advise you to drive it until it is inspected. better safe than sorry.
