Question about 1993 Nissan Sentra 4 Door

2 Answers

Strange noise Round 2...I noticed last month that my car was making this whinning scraping sound from the driver's side front tire that is consistant with the revolving of the tire. I thought it might have been the rotors and come to find out it's not just replaced those today still the same noise. I noticed today that when i accelerate that the noise goes away, but when I slow down it kicks up again wether I apply the brakes or not. as well I noticed that when I turn left it gets worse and begans to sound like a real tight binding noise and if I turn right it doesn't make the noise. I know for a fact that it's not the CV's because they were just replaced 3 years ago and looking at them today they were perfect. any idea for diagnosis is appreciated.

I had something similar to this awhile ago... check the splash sheilds on the front calipers to see if they are bent in.

Just noticed a scraping noise while driving coming from drivers side rear. Sounds like brake pad is scraping but not sure. It happens with every rotation of the tire, does change in sound when brakes are...


So take your brakes apart & do what ever service needs to be done

They should come apart once a year

If your not doing that ,disassembly,rust removal,lube
& any machine work, if necessary,your going to have
braking problems

The fluid gets changed every 2 years,so there is no excuse
for not being in there looking things over

OCCASIONAL Metallic scraping noise - New ceramic brake pads.


You could be right with the wheel bearings. But first take the wheel off and check that nothing is scraping the rotor. Look all the way around the rotor. A suggestion will be that the brake pads have worn enough that the brake pad wear indicator is starting to scrape. Pry them back a little.
