When I drive there is a loud grinding noise in front right side by tire, what could this be?


It could be a number of things, could be the brake disc grinding up against the Caliper, or it could be a wheel ball bearing, those are the most likely since it's a metal on metal sounds, my bet would be the disc brake though. Caliper might need adjusting, or your pads are worn down and rubbing against the disc. Hope this helps.

CV joint - wheel side needs to be replaced :) right wheel, a lot of people drive like that for a while before they fix it so don't worry, also it shouldn't be soooo expensive

I went and got new tires they told me I needed a link pin replaced on the front passenger wheel. It is now grinding when I make a hard right turn. I do not see a part named that do you know what that would...


Did they replace the "link" pin? In the front...the only thing that is a "link" are the swaybar end links, would not be in the way of the tires though. But these need to be replaced as a whole, cannot replace just the pins. Are the tires rubbing or is it a metal to metal sound? If the tires are oversized, could be rubbing against the upper ball joint. If it's metal to metal, it could be many things. If they replaced the end link, make sure they put the correct one on, the right is for the right, the left is for the left, if switched, it will bend and rub agains the gusset right there.....been there, made that mistake.

When I turn there is a grating sound, both left and right turns--doesn't happen at low low speeds or on very easy turns. 2003 honda civic


It sounds like the CV joints need some attention. These are covered with rubber boots and if the boots crack they let in water and/or dirt which cause the joints to make a popping or grinding sound. Turn the wheels left or right and look under the car towards the inside of the wheels. The boots are right next to the back of the wheels. Look for cracks in the rubber. If you can, push on the boots and check for small cracks. If they are cracked, have them looked at immediately. The longer they go like that the more damage will be caused. Thanks for using fixya.

It sounds like metal to metal rub while driving and turning also get this clunk sound as if the springs were interfering with something. any suggestions? Please help


check for worn brakes, if good, check the condition of the wheel bearings, as for the clunking noise check the condition of the suspension components like shocks, control arm bushing and ball joints

Front grinding/rubbing sound when accelerating


if you slide under the truck and try moving the cv with your hands and there is any looseness in joint or noise the joint is indeed worn out, the cv joint if bad should not stop the truck from shifting into 4 wheel drive it could be stuck in 4wd and this would cause cv joints to break, if u have access to lift get all tires in air and try2 vs 4 drive and see if tires turn if not lift front tires off ground tires should turn freelyin 2wd, as u turn tires listen to wheel bearing and shaft noises for grinding clunking indicating bad parts, simple tricks that may help u find problems for cheap good luck!!
