    we tore apart the roter and hub, the roter is warped. thank all, we are replacing the hub and roter today

    Sound like the same thing that's going on with my '97 Geo Metro. I just had the brakes examined (they're fine) and the transmission mount replaced, and the noise is still there! How much does a new hub and roter cost?

I am trying to find out what is making my front end grind on passenger side when i drive down the road on 2000 ford taurus


Check the front brake rotor. When the brake pads wear down too far they will make a grinding noise. I am not sure what sound the axle makes when they begin to wear out. I would check the boot that covers the axle joint for any damage.

Grinding metal sound over 30 mph


I believe that your Subaru has a transmission issue. There are quite a few things that will make a grinding noise. Wheel bearings, worn out brakes, damaged brake rotors or drums, loose or damaged brake calipers, defective hardware kit (for the brake shoes), torque converter, flywheel, U-joints, and CV joints. The interesting part of your symptoms is that you can only hear the grinding between 30-60MPH. I think you need to continue testing and inspecting components, one by one. You have all ready narrowed your search down. You know that the Brakes, CV joints, and Bearings are fine. So now you need to focus on the drive train. Inspect as much as you can from the flywheel, to the transmission, the drive shaft and rear axel, and the output shaft and front drive axel. If you can not find it yourself it may be time to send it in for repair. Let me know if you have any questions or new information, good luck.

2003 Chevy Silverado is making a clunking noise, on and off sometime over bumps. Also a deep grinding type noise in the same location while driving not constant


Hello Karla,

It sounds like you may have a bearing or CV joint going out. Your vehicle will need to be jacked up and inspected. It may be more than one problem too. Its possible the dragging noise could be something between brake pads and rotor, but the grinding that comes and goes in reference to direction sounds like a bearing or joint. I would take it to a professional right away and ask for an estimate only, and then get other estimates from other shops as well. Good luck to you.

Front right will grinds and pops when i make turn how do i fix


CV joint and/or bearings obvious first guess. You say they are good or did you actually replace already? Check entire front wheel assembly-lug nuts tight?brake caliper/rotor positioned correctly and tight?suspension tight and in good condition?any signs of rubbing indicating abnormal part travel?

One of your CV joints are bad, inspect which CV joint needs to be replaced. Roll your windows down and make tight right and left corners in an empty parking lot slowly and listen for the clicking noise. If it's coming from the passenger side window or the drivers side window, which ever side the noise is coming from is the side that the CV joint has failed and will need to be replaced.
Thank you for using FIxya and replacing the front wheel bearing improperly buy hammering the CV joint out instead of using a wheel bearing puller will cause damage to the CV joint as to what you have described. Good luck and keep us posted.

Seperate outer cv from axel 99 chevy metro


First, did you check the price difference on a complete axle (saves time and aggravation of doing joint & boot) Most times you can get them apart by just putting the axle in a vise and giving the joint a good smack with a hammer. There is a small clip in the end that you can spread, but you have to look carefully to find it. Most people have a hard time getting the boot to stay on and find it has come off a few weeks after they installed it.
That's why I suggest replacing the entire axle which if far cheaper than they used to be!!!

A humming or growling noise can sometimes be heard due to inadequate lubrication in either the inner or outer CV joint. Inspect the boot and see if it is cracked or split. This symptom is more often due to worn or damaged wheel bearings, a bad intermediate shaft bearing on equal length halfshaft transaxles, or due to worn shaft bearings within the transaxle.

Hope this helps and good luck!
