A metallic squeaking sound from the front driver side wheel well

I have a 04 Dodge Neon.

I've noticed that when I'm backing up or driving slowing in the parking lot, this metallic squeaking sound from the front driver's side.

And when I'm driving on the highway, sometimes I hear this metallic ringing noise from the same area. It comes and goes. It usually lasts a few seconds, and it seems to stop if I brake slightly. It seems to be happening more frequently. Any suggestions of what it could be?

thanks!

Probably only rust on outer edge of brake rotor. It builds up and will touch slightly against spindle once in a while, quite often when turning one way or the other. If nothing else, pull wheels off and just check pad wear, and wear indicators, they may be touching rotor slightly if pads worn,and if o.k. just rotate the wheel & with a hammer & safety glasses on, tap the outside corner of the rotor where you see approx. 1/4' lip of rust, and it should chip off, all the way around. Make sure to do back edge at same time.

On your brake pads there is a wear indicator tab. This is a metal tab that protrudes just past where the brake lining almost ends. It is there as an indicator that your brake pads are nearing the end of their life cycle and it is time to change them.

I recently had 2 motor mounts on my 2005 dodge neon replaced. After I got my car back, I noticed it was making a weird noise, can't quite describe it, just knew that I hadn't heard it before. Then...


I also had my engine mounts replaced on my 2005 Dodge Neon. I have the same sound going on right now. When I spoke to a Auto Parts guy, he looked at it and said it was my tension-er pulley, and that when it runs out of grease it is a screeching noise and will be metal on metal. If you are looking at the front side of your car at the hood. It is the belt and pulley's that are on the left of the engine. (other side of battery). The tension-er pulley is the almost triangle looking piece located behind the back side of the belt.

They belt not being tight enough could also be why when I start my car, it seems to be rough starting.

I plan on getting this fixed ASAP. Perhaps your's went out and is now why the difficult steering.

I know this is not a solution, but it might help.

Screeching noise coming from driver side tire


The high pitch sound may come from the brake pads as metal parts hit the disc to signal the owner that it needs change. The metal parts gets exposed when the pads have worn out. The brake also has a hub to cover the disc. See if the metal plate is hitting it but this issue would appear when the wheels are in motion. Check if it is the belts, have the tension checked out. Other than that the bearings are the other items on your wheel that could cause a high pitched sound when you car is in motion.

My 1995 Dodge Stratus is making a noise coming from the front end


Sounds like it is time for some ball joints. There is no way to grease them, and when they start squeaking, it is time for replacement. Do both upper and lower on the side that is squeaking.

Squeaking noise at low speeds


take the front wheels off and look between the brake scratch plate and the rotor. - a stone trapped there will cause this noise. Also between the driveshaft and the hub, where the shaft enters the hub at the back. l
Look too for either a support bracket for a brake line or ABS wiring touching the driveshaft. Also there is an antisqueal spring on the back of the brake calipers someotimes this will touch the outside of the brake rotor, you'll see a shiny mark on the rotor if something is touching. Also the scratch plate on the back of the rotor can touch the inside of the wheel rim, again look for a shiny mark all the way around the inside of the rim. Lastly look at the face of the brake rotor for a circular scratch - indicates a stone stuck in the brake pad. Have fun!
