Grinding noise front wheel

I have a 2004 Mercury Sable and recently when I start driving my car I hear a grinding noise coming from the driver side front wheel. The grinding dissipates as I drive and is more noticeable when the temp outside drops below 25 degrees.

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

SOURCE: I hear a loud grinding noise when i drive my car

Check front tyres & wheel bearings espesially the R/H/F. Feel tyre for high / low spots on inside & jack up & spin wheel if you get noise while jacked up it is not the tyres but wheel bearing or brake pads but more than likly a crook bearing by the sound of it. It needs to be tended to ASAP

It sounds like you have a bad c v or constant velocity joint. Look under the car next to the wheel look for a rubber accordian type unit, if the rubber is torn or lose the grease has escaped and damaged the joint. You can replace it yourself, but if your not mechanically inclined would say take it to a shop.

I have an 04 hyundai elantra. When im driving slow (0-40mph) you can hear a grinding noise coming from the front driver side, but when i speed up on the highway or anything there is no more noise. it


This could be the brake pads dragging or it could be a wheel bearing. You can check one or the other. The wheel bearing is tested by jacking up the car with that wheel off the ground and see if you can rock the wheel side to side or up and down. The way to check the brakes is to take the wheel off and look at the brake pads.

04 mountaineer brake light on, grinding and clicking noise front driver wheel


if the clicking noise happens when turning the wheels while driving, the most likely problem is the output axle shaft ( drive axle ) when the boots rips you loose grease and they start to grind and clicking and brake away. ( recommended to bring to an auto repair shop ) roughly price on drive axles are $125 for the part and 1.5 hours labor.

Now, if those noises could be duplicated without driving ( just moving the steering wheel side to side ) it could be a bad ball joint or pitman arm.

I really don't think that the brake light is related. I would go straight to your mechanic and avoid all pot holes and drive slowly.
Good luck.

Check the condition of the wheel bearings, front and back side if the brake rotor, and the back side of the rim. Everything should be clean, rust build-up can throw everything out of true. The hub or wheel-bearing should be tight and smooth when spun.
