SOURCE: cracking or breaking sound when turning mainly when parking

I doubt it. I heard the same noise from my old Accord when the CV boot was going out. If you heard breaking from the drive shaft I believe the next thing you'd see is it rolling down the street. If the drive shaft were making that sound you would not be able to continue driving.

Get this vehicle into an alignment shop and have the front end checked out before you kill someone

SOURCE: 06 Camry, new breaks/rotars now sounds like metal and grinding.

First, if the brakes are stopping the car OK. Check that the metal shields behind the rotors are not touching the rotors...that can make terrible noise though it's not serious and is easily corrected by bending. If that is not the problem, bring it back to whoever did the work immediately!!!
I'd much rather see a car not starting than one that can't stop...Obviously dangerous and important not to delay having looked at!

SOURCE: Grinding noise in front wheel

Most likely bad wheel bearing. If you have ABS then you may need to get the bearing assembly that has the ABS ring on it if it comes as an assembly.

SOURCE: Toyota highlander front wheel noise when turning left

Check the brake rotor backing plate to see if it is rubbing against the brake rotor, check the brake pad condition at the same time, it may be the low brake pad sensors that you are hearing.

I have a grinding noise coming from, what sounds like to me, the front passenger side tire. you will hear it as you as you gain speed, and the sound basically gets louder and faster, the faster you go....


Change both front Wheel Hub Bearings

You know the left is bad, so why tells us
change it

The brake wear is from not doing brake work
often enough,no rust removal,no lubing of of
any moving parts

The right side was basically rusted & frozen in place
& not releasing,the repair shops don't do much in that
area,need to do your own work

Take brakes apart once or twice a year

I have a 2002 Toy Camry and today while driving I went to make a left turn. I heard a deep "thud" sound that came the front right-side wheel area and a strange grinding noise that followed also...


check for failed wheel bearings or loose wheel on studs. Check suspension ball joints and steering joints the problem is serious so have the front inspected by a competent mechanic

When I make a left turn only, and break, it sounds like something is rubbing or grinding. If I turn left without breaking, I don't hear anything. No noises when turning right or braking while driv


If the problem is as bad as it sounds, you may be close to parking it until fixed.
Normally, if you turn left, your are "loading" the right side, and visa-versa.
Think of it this way.
Picture a car going fast around a turn. The wheel on the inside of the turn might actually lift off of the ground, it is "unloaded".
With that thought in mind, look closely at the right front wheel. Start with the brake pads and /or rotor ( what the brake pads rub on to stop the car.)
Check the rotor inside and out. A good flashlight will do.
Pull the right front wheel and see if the pads are worn out or the rotor is no longer smooth, but "torn up" on the inside or the outside.
If the pads and the rotor is fine, next look at the wheel bearings.
This will be a bigger problem, probably a shop needs to check this out.

What is the grinding noise on my 2003 Grand am front wheels, help please?


There are many things the grinding noise can be. I would start with the breaks though as that sounds like the most likely culprit. If they are grinding, odds are you have ruined your rotors and/or drums. This means that you are looking at about $50-$70 in new parts per wheel (Total of $200 to $280) to replace, assumming only the pads and rotors/drums needs to be replaced.

Please note that breaks can be a good DIY project, but this takes an intermediate skill level with some expereince. Some vehicles are easier than others. Drum style breaks can be especially tricky as they relie on a system of springs that can be challenging to work with. There is also a hydrulic system that can have issues. If you see break fluid when you take off the wheels and drums, you have much larger issues and I would recommend getting in touch with someone more qualified.

I had a constant grinding coming from front passenger tire. Replaced Caliper and put the worn pads back on for a day, the constant grinding went away. It would still grind while braking,hitting a bump


It sounds like the brake pads are metal to metal, when you turn the flexing of the wheel makes them touch the rotor and grind. This can rarely be caused by a badly worn wheel bearing as well, have both brakes and wheel bearing inspected.

Brakes are making loud grinding noise when slowing down to stop or on an incline


Ok, it could be a few things, 1. bad break caliper. 2. if you have ceramic breaks, it could be a cracked brake pad, and if they are not ceramic they can still be cracked. 3. if you drive a lot then it could be that you need new breaks again.. 4. also have your back breaks checked along with the front ones..

It sounds like the rear calipers are bad. Raise the rear wheels and see if you can turn the tires. If you can't, open the bleeder. If you still can't replace the caliper. If you can turn the wheel after you open the bleeder, replace the brake hose to that wheel.

2003 BMW 325i, Metal-on-metal grinding left turn only


This sounds like a wheel bering. If you turn left on a bad passengerside bering it growls louder because more pressure is shifted onto it.
