SOURCE: Rubbing or grinding noise coming from Driver side rear tire/wheel

I had the same problem that based on interner research is common for Fords trcuks/suvs. The common problem fro rear humming "rubbing"sound might be the rear wheel bearings/seal. These will need to be replaced as it will progressivly get worse and the noise louder and eventually the bearings can sieze. I would hesitate to take to a ford dealer if I were you as it can run $500-900. Take to mechanic that knows how to replace wheel bearings and seals. My mechanic replaced them for about $150. and the bearing and seals are around $40. A good way to test this is to raise the wheel were you can freely spin by hand...if does not spin or there is a lot of friction then it might be the wheel bearings.
Good Luck

SOURCE: Grinding noise in front end

Hi
Had the exact same problem, on a used 2003 Protege ES with 82,000 miles that I purchased.
Started with the loud "road noise" I thought well maybe thats just the sound that it makes.
And then noticed that it varies when turning.
This will continue to get worse and then your abs light will come on when it gets bad enough to trigger the sensor..
It turned out to be a bad wheel bearing.
Take it to a shop and have an experienced mechanic check it out. Its repairable.

First remove right rear tire and wheel and inspect rear brakes and drum for any problems,like a worn out brake shoe or a broken return spring.Also check brake drum for heavy scoring.If all the above look good rotate hub assy. and feel for any rough spots as you are rotating it.If you feel any roughness replace rear hub assemly.Hope this will help you.

SOURCE: volvo xc90 2004 buzzing in steering wheel, clunck noise under car

that sounds like you are low on power steering fluid ... when the level gets low then the pump starts to ingest air and that produces a buzzing sound when you turn the wheel .....i would add or change the fluid and check for leaks and mechanical loosness in the under car linkages ...you can have that checked at your next oil change .

Testimonial: "Thank you, you were right I took the car in and they said the steering fluid was low. "

I can't get the wheels off my 2006 Volvo XC90. I


This is very common, the center hole of the rim is whats holding the wheels on due to corrsion, you will need to hit inside of tire with a good size hammer and spinning it so you hit diffrent spots of the tire. the tire will break free.
Note try not to hit the rim as it will dent, wont harm it but try to avoid it.

You will note the build up on the inside center hole of the rim and also on the center hub. use a steel brusk and some fine sand paper to clean.
After you clean apply some lube grease around hub, this will make the wheel go on and come off alot better. hope this helps.

Could be tire noise, could be rear wheel bearing, differential (if rear wheel driven), or could be something associated with the brake.

Try swapping the tire with another tire. If the noise moves with the tire, it's the tire. If it stays, it's brakes (unlikely for the noise you mention), rear wheel bearing, or rear differential (lack of oil). Will probably need to have a mechanic to identify and repair.

I have a 2003 Subaru Forester XT Luxury manual transmission with 100,000Km. The last 5000Km I have been increasingly aware of noise - hum rather than grinding or scraping or shadder - from rear end which...


Hello,
Noise can be also from some sticky brake pad, or the bearings of the rear wheels, or even some spoiler, but you should have noticed it right after installing, and it is another sound. As for the differential, there might be a broken tooth, or again bearings, regardless of oil state.

Grinding noise front end.


I say it's the CV joints. You have to jack up under the lower A-Arm, to take the spring pressure off of it, to check them.

(Use jack stands, and wheel chocks behind the rear tires. Emergency brake On. Work on a hard level surface. Be SAFE! Trucks can be replaced, YOU cannot!)

Volvo XC70, Grinding Noise


sounds like c/v axles (front drive shafts) they will make a clicking sound normally when turning sharp and accell at the same time at slow speeds / look at the axle boots and look for grease on the inside of the front wheels leaking out the axle boots
