    When I go in reverse, I get a grinding noise that sounds like its coming from the rear. When I go forward, it stops. Trying to get an idea what it could be/where to start. It sounds like a grinding/rubbing that happens in equal increments (based on speed). Doesn't matter if I'm applying the brake or not either. Its a 2006 GMC Canyon

    The car seems to have a bit of wiggle to it in the rear end when we hit a bump. The rear also gets a vibration to it after you get speeds of 65 to 70 miles an hour.

Metal grinding & rattling in front end at slow speeds (<15 mph) and sometimes noise when tapping brake pedal at slow speed.


It needs to be looked at right away.It could be your brake pads are totally worn out and they are grinding on the front rotors It could also be a bad C.V. shaft or hub assembly.I'm betting on brakes.Don't be surprised if they want to replace the rotors,the brake pads,and possibly even the calipers.They should be able to tell you whats going on within 15 minutes of taking off the front tires.good luck

Grinding noise


Can be brake pads are thin and the warning scraper is what you hear. Might be a wheel bearing.

I was driving my 1992 Ford Explorer when all of a sudden I heard lound grinding noises. It sounded like metal dragging on the ground mixed with grinding gears and metal under the truck. When I looked


sounds like possible brake job if the truck didn't drive differently or you can feel light vibrations on the steering wheel...either way could be costly depnding on if you know how to change your brakes yourself :)

2005 Ford Explorer is making a grinding noise


I had some issues with my 2005 explorer left rear. It was making a creepy old door sound at low speeds and then a high pitched whisel at high speeds. That turned out to be a broken wheel bearing and had it replaced. Note each wheel has two wheel bearings. After that a new noise developed that sounded like metal scraping/ grinding metal. It end up being the brake dust cover got bent when they replaced the bearing and it was rubbing something, the fix for that was bending it so it didn't rub. I hope this helps.

Sound like tire scrubbing and grinding on right front 2004 ford explorer


Get your brakes inspected - the grinding noise may be the front disc brake pads, which have worn out. Several national chains offer free estimates for brake repairs. They will also check the other front end components, which could be causing the noise.
Hope this helps...

My brakes grind and vibrate when pressed


My feeling is that you did not use a high quality pad like the Bendix or wagner thermo quiets and the rotors likely need surfacing even if they are new they can be warped due to the way they are stored. Good Bendix pads for this vehicle retail for around 75.00 or more
