Question about 2002 Volkswagen Golf

Grinding noise from underside of car

At first the front driver side wheel shook kinda bad as i would push on the gas (even after a recent tire balance). now i feel the problem has progressed because there is a slight grinding sound coming from the bottom of the car as i push the gas. almost sounds like metal clicking and rubbing.

Why am I experiencing a vibration or grinding while turning?


get the car serviced and diagnosed? noise finding takes hands on work. not guessing.
do you need list. and are you a hands on person? many here are not just looking for wild guessing. which are you>?

i cant even guess. as you never said what corner or car makes noise. kinda key to Discovery. and cause.
my guess its the front. end.
bad brakes.
bad wheel bearings
bad U-joints. up front.
disc caliper pistons stuck or the guide pins SEIZED.
Disc rotor damage of any kind. (inspections find most of these)

tires with too low pressure can cause odd effects. truly odd.
one tire i had , had side wall deformations, (cheap tires , factory 2nds by previous owners) and when low, they make steering wheel ripple effects///, the most odd thing ive ever seen, not 1960 when this happened all the time. (nylon cord tires or worse).
Inspect tires for damage or low air pressure, (every 30 days)

but grinding is bad news, any machine that grinds, is the sign of doom. (metal against metal dry)

the rule on noise, is LOCATION , it's exact location.

Why noise in car when pressing on gas pedal grinding


It's the car pulling to that side? Sticking brake pad possible. When did you have brakes done last off at all? Front brakes go out twice as fast as rear brakes. If you can Charlie jack up that side put car in park, set emergency brake and chock rear tires. Pull off that tire and see if rotor is grooved or scored badly. It may have been sticking and wore down faster. Also check CV BOOT. If torn u joints get dirty and will grind. Hope this was some help.

Noise on front driver side and i replaces rotors and brakes


may be the backing plate is hitting. or it may be the wheel bearing is bad. check by making turns and see if the noise goes away or starts grinding like a washing machine. IF grinding is worse replace wheel bearring.

Thumping, grinding noise comes from right front side


most likely a front hub [wheel bearing ]going bad but jack up front side that is causing problem and try to move tire in and out with hands at top and bottom of tire and listen and feel for noise or excess movement it to much movement remove tire an check the upper and lower ball joints as well as the shock/strut but check brakes grinding can also mean pads are metal to rotor but usually grinding and thumping is related to a bad hub

My tire is making grinding noise then drivers side tire blew, brake line. Roke and when I put spare tire on you can move the tire back and forth. Any ideas?


Your tire is making a grinding noise? Was your tire even turning when it blew? I sounds as though you have a wheel bearing going bad (or maybe even out). Install a new wheel bearing Chrysler vehicles are noted for this. Please rate my answer so I get point awarded.

Front driver tire wobbling and very unstable lug nuts are tight


Is there and kind of squeling or grinding noise when the vehicle is driven?
The wheel bearings could have failed and are allowing the tire to wobble.
Is there a lot of play or a clonking noise when the steering is turned from side to side?
You could have a bad steering joint and this is allowing the wheel to wooble.

My abs light stays on although breaking seems ok but sometimes when i break at slow speed i get a slight grinding noise and shake from the front wheel drivers side


It sounds like you have a bad wheel bearing and you should have that checked.I would also check the passenger side as well.If you jack the vehicle so the front tire comes off the ground and try to move it from the top and bottom of the tire with a push pull type motion you will notice some movement if the bearing is getting pretty bad but sometimes when it is bad you might not feel it at all.If this is the case you will have to bring it somewere to get it diagnosed.

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.

Volvo XC70, Grinding Noise


sounds like c/v axles (front drive shafts) they will make a clicking sound normally when turning sharp and accell at the same time at slow speeds / look at the axle boots and look for grease on the inside of the front wheels leaking out the axle boots
