First check the brake pads , a worn out brake pads may create a squeaking and grinding noise, if its delayed then you need to change rotors the brakes,get check ....

My 97 tj begins to squeak when i shoft it into


It could be water has gotten to something it shouldn't have, I would check the front u-joints to your front axles. There may be grease fittings on them but most of the time they are sealed or should be at least, u-joints can make a squeaky sound if there is no grease.

When you turn the wheel there is faint squeaking ( soft high pitch)sound. Not a grinding sound. More of a rubbing sound, faint though.


if the noise is heard when you turn and not moving, then you may have some problem with ball joints or tire rod ends.
if the noise is heard when you are moving only then it could be the brake wear indicator start to touch the brake rotor

Squeaking/grinding noise when turning the wheel


Are the front brake pads ok? Some have squeal indicators, it is a tin plate that touches the disc (without damaging) to warn you that the brakes are worn. On the initial stages it will happen more so on slow cornering but will quickly get louder over a matter of days.
Check the pads for thickness, should be min 6mm

I have a 2002 Nissan Quest and the rear brakes are making grinding and squeaking noises while braking. The rear brakes were replaced a month ago and since then it's been making those noises. I have read...


Make sure the rotors (the disks that the tire rim are mounted on), are smooth. If they are rough, then they are wearing your break pads down. Even if the break pads are new, bad rotors will grind them down. Change the rotors...

Rear defrost, service engine soon, and squeak from rear of car


Sounds like the wheel bearing... try jacking the car up and moving the rotor forward or backward. if you hear a grinding noise, or if the rotor moves sideways... like rock it.. then its definately that. I have the same problem with the service engine soon light... try removing the positive on the battery then waiting 30 seconds and putting back on. should reset the cpu.

Front wheel seems about to fall off


It sounds like the Bearings are out on that Wheel. You Could have caused damage to the Spindle in addition. Not a Cheap Fix by any Means. Check the Bearings and Spindle for Breakage.

Squeaking and/or grading noise on the right front of a corolla


www.recalls.gov is always a good place to look and see if there was a recall issued on your car.

Not trying to be a wise guy Ed, but it is really hard to diagnose a noise from inside the car itrslef, much less when it's going downhill

What has me concerned Ed is that it only happens "from time too time", and it has two different noises.....a grinding is usually metal against metal...a squealing would make me think a rubber "something" was rubbing......but where?

My advise Ed is this........if you feel safe driving it, and you can put up with the "squealing/grinding"
noise....then don't fix what ain't broke. Otherwise, if it bothers you enough that you fear for your safety, or the safety of others, make an appointment right away at where you take the vehicle for being diagnosed and repaired.

I know it wasn't much help Ed, but thanks for giving us at FixYa.com a chance to work for you.
