The noise you hear is normal when it's time to change the pads. After you've purchased your brake pads (usually $20-30 depending on where you go, quality, etc), take your front tire off and take the 2 bolts out that hold your brake caliper on. You should be able to lift the calipers upward above the rotors and remove the old pads (they just snap in). Be careful not to put too much stress on the line connected to the calipers as these lines are full of brake fluid. Breaking or cracking this line is not good. Just hold them in one hand as you change the pads. When you put the whole thing back on the rotor, you'll need to compress the pads, otherwise they won't fit. I usually use a long screwdriver and pry the pads back. This will ensure you will be able to match the holes up for your two bolts to go back in. Repeat on the other front wheel. Hope this helps.

Noise comming from left side front sounds like wheel is scraping something, the faster the car goes the faster the chirp gets


COULD BE THE BRAKE PAD WEAR INDICATOR AS THE PADS MIGHT BE CLOSE FOR REPLACEMENT. ALSO A ROCK CAUGHT IN BRAKE/CALIPER AREA CAN CAUSE THE NOISE AS WELL.

While I am driving when I am pressing the gas pedal it makes a scraping noise but not all the time. If I hit the brakes it will stop. I have a 2001 Nissan Sentra GXE


Sounds like it might be the low brake pad indicator. A small flap of metal which is made to scrape the rotor when the brake pads reach a certain low level. When brackes are applied the noise typically quiets.
Check for worn front brake pads.

Scraping grinding noise in front passenger side wheel. Could it be a replacable wheel bearing?


When both a scraping and grinding noise is heard from a wheel, it typically indicates a problem with the brakes, not the bearings. If when the brakes are applied, the noise changes, it does indicate a possible brake issue. I would first check the brakes and then take a close look at the bearings, as they can still cause the grinding noise, but not typically the scraping noise. Hope this is helpful.

Horrible scraping/scratching noise coming from wheel


Hello, this would be an easy thing to diagnose. All you need to do is jack up the front of the car, so that you can turn the wheel and listen to it while you wiggle and turn it manually. You're also checking for any wobble and wear in the front end parts at the same time. Next, remove the wheel and inspect the rotor for any scratching to the shiny surface, which could determine where the problem is. If no problem there, rotate rotor and listen for the scratching sound and you will see where its coming from by looking at the brake pads which are visible when the wheel is off.

It could be the bearings inside the cv joint, but I would think the bearings inside the hub first.

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.
