Grinding noise front wheel


1st have the brake pads checked, then if the pads are OK you likely have a defective wheel bearing/hub assembly

If you here a roaring noise in your front wheel and when you turn one way or the other and it stops. then your gonna be looking at changing your wheel bearing ( hub assembly ) , but how do you know which one to change. Well when driving down the road, move steering wheel back and forth easy, which ever way you turn the wheel and the noise stops that is which side is bad.
Example : your driving alone and you turn your wheel to the right and the noise goes away, then it's your right wheel bearing ( hub assembly ).if you turn to the left and the noise stops, then it's your left wheel bearing ( hub assembly ).

Front end noise


Assuming that you have already ruled out the brakes, severely worn engine mounts can transmit vibration and noises from the engine which are not normally heard. You don't say in what I see but is the vehicle two or four wheel drive. Since you mention CV half shafts I have to assume it is at least front wheel drive. If the vehicle is four wheel drive then there is a front differential with bearings in it that may be at fault. Have you done both sides when you say "hub assembly". Defective hub bearings will make grinding noises which will change tone or intensity when turning, accelerating or braking however the noise is usually fairly constant unless they are only just starting to fail. CV joints don't normally "grind" unless they are really bad. They usually make progressively worse "clicking" sounds or "clunking" sounds especially when turning hard, changing gears or direction of travel (forward to reverse and back again). Do you have non-stock tires/wheels? Larger/wider than factory spec tire sizes can rub the fender wells when the car is moving or turning. Another thing it could possibly be is the air dam below the front bumper. If it is loose it will push down in the airstream while the car is moving and rub on the ground.

2003 Trailblazer, the front drivers side wheel locks up and won't turn more than half a turn forward then the same backward. Making a bad clunk noise if you try to force it by giving the truck more gas to...


It sounds like a problem within the front differential, possibly broken spider gears. If so broken gear shrapnel may be jamming that wheels output shaft.

Front wheel noise when driving. Louder the faster you go.


Raise the vehicle until one wheel is off the ground. Grab wheel by sides and wiggle - if it moves, you may have a bad wheel bearing. Also try rolling the wheel and listen closely - you should hear and feel a crunching or grinding noise which would confirm the wheel bearing. Lower vehicle and check the other side. Many newer vehicles have the bearing as part of the hub, requiring the replacement of the hub assembly to fix the bad bearing. Most others require a press to change out the bearing. It may be worthwhile to take it to a shop right away for a hands on diagnostic. Be careful driving it - the wheel bearing could potentially cause the wheel assembly to fall of the vehicle, injuring or killing yourself or others!!!

Grinding noise driver side front at low speed . have changed hub assembly goes away for a little while then comes back . can spin the hub and dont feel like bearing is bad. really getting to me


Did you recently swap tires from back to front. I had very annoying wheel bearing type noise and the tires were not noticeably worn (Bridgestones) but apparently some wear pattern was causing my noise. Swapped them back.

Grinding noise in front wheel


Most likely bad wheel bearing. If you have ABS then you may need to get the bearing assembly that has the ABS ring on it if it comes as an assembly.
