The vibration is caused by the rotors being warped. Remove the front tires and check the front brake pads. Replace if needed. This is a pretty straight forward job. The rotors are "fall off" rotors and you won't need anything special tool wise.

SOURCE: brakes new but still make a rubbing noise

Some brake pads have a small pin sticking up for the e brake that pad must be on the outside when not installed for the e brake or the caliper will not push it out straight. Remove the pads and check for wear on the caliper face and make sure you have them installed correctly I put a pad in backwards once it worked but made a noise

2010 endeavor making whining noise from rear end at any speed. It is a front wheel drive. Put on new tires, still doing it.


If the sound gets higher pitched with higher speed, you may have a bad wheel bearings. If the whining stays constant, there may be something rubbing like the brake backing plate (especially on drum brakes). Try putting your hand near the backing plate after you drive it a bit. The friction from rubbing will make it hot.

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.

2008 Chevy Impala SS V8 , is making grinding noise during left turn and acelerating. Thought it was left hub bearing and had fix noise is still there. Any ideas?


sounds like something in the driveline. if wheel bearings are good it could be brake caliper making contact with rotor, axle bearings , or the transmission may be failing. if it does it worse in 1st gear then its more likely to be a transmission problem. check both sides though. often noise and vibration can travel from one side to the other. also check your tires for knots or cuts, flat spots or heavy brake dust on the wheel. tell me what you find. hope this helps.

My break pads and roters are good....but once in a blue moon while driveing i hear a load knocking or rubbing of metal around the driver area around the wheel well, followed by a very loud screeching/metal...


perhaps a stone has lodged in the brake caliper, or the bolts holding the caliper are loose, also check wheel bearing, and wheel lugs, either way it shouldnt make that noise and will need someone to look at it, it should be easy to see what is scraping

Rear driver wheel has light reubbing noise when car in motion goes away when brakes are engaged. Is this brakes or barrings problem? Cost of repair?


hi this sounds like your brake pads have worn, or the brake shoes as well, if you have drum brakes on the back it will be shoes, if disk brakes will be pads+shoes (inside the disk) if it was the wheel bearing you would hear a loud humming noise not rubbing noise, is it a metallic rubbing noise or a rubber squeaking rubbing noise? just check condition of tyre on back if it is the squeaking rubber noise cost will depend on where you take it and if you do it yourself, possibly $40 to $50 at a garage/auto shop or possibly $20 to $30 if you do it yourself, this just depends ...hope this helps
