Rubbing noise from front

There is a steady Rubbing noise from front when accelerating from a stop until the car reaches 15 mph then it completly stops. There is no slippage.We had a brake job done at dealer, complete with new rotors. We thought it might be the brakes so we took it back. They checked brakes said they were ok. They told us there was vibration from the tranny, could be tranny carrier bearing. They dont do tranny repairs, theynoffered to replace ours for $4000, which we cant afford, who can? What could it be?

Have the cv joints checked out and check that the rubber boots are not loose and rubbing on the metal surrounds.

SOURCE: Front wheel bearings

It does have the complete hub assembly's on it, but they are not that difficult to change. And that does sound like the problem you are having.

SOURCE: Rubbing or grinding noise coming from Driver side rear tire/wheel

I had the same problem that based on interner research is common for Fords trcuks/suvs. The common problem fro rear humming "rubbing"sound might be the rear wheel bearings/seal. These will need to be replaced as it will progressivly get worse and the noise louder and eventually the bearings can sieze. I would hesitate to take to a ford dealer if I were you as it can run $500-900. Take to mechanic that knows how to replace wheel bearings and seals. My mechanic replaced them for about $150. and the bearing and seals are around $40. A good way to test this is to raise the wheel were you can freely spin by hand...if does not spin or there is a lot of friction then it might be the wheel bearings.
Good Luck

SOURCE: Front Passenger brakes rubbing

Dis brakes have residual pressure thar keeps the pads in constant contact with the roter.It is very light contact, so not to worry. If left is not in contact with rotor then chk it for loose wheel bearings.

A carrier bearing usually pertains to the differential assembly and would not cause the symptom you describe. There is a problem with this transmission that causes it to not drop completely to first gear after a period of driving. Ford is aware of it but I do not believe they have initiated a recall. Call your Ford dealer(s) to see if you can find an honest man. Ask for the service manager.

Rubbing noise from front of car


It could be your brakes. Your brakes are always rubbing lightly. Pull your front wheels off one at a time, and feel the rotor, to see if there are any gouges in it. Do not do this after you have just driven a distance though, that brake will be hot. Check that first though. Are there any vibrations when you press the brake at slow or high speeds?

Front end vibration at 40 mph and rubbing sound


Vibration at 40 mph hard to diagonisis without looking at front end. Could be wheels need balancing, new wheels and rims. Loose or worn suspension items.
Bring vehicle into a tire and alignment shop. Most Sears auto center have them.
With regards to rubbing noise again hard to diagonisis without looking at the affected tire, probably a splash shield hitting the tire in reverse.
Alignment shop will find the problem.

jack up the rear wheel and spin the rear wheel to find out what the rub is. look to see if there is any rubbing marks on or in the fender well.( do not have on the emergency brake) Also if the noise could be metalic then it could be the brake drum rubbing on the backing plate.
