Sounds like it needs pads and rotors replaced. Be sure to check to see if the calipers and/or slides are ok.

Brakes make a whistle noise when applied and sometimes a low grown or grinding when coming to a slow stop or start.


A grinding or rumbling noise can also be symptoms of a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint in a driveshaft. A worn wheel bearing can also cause a 'whistling' sound (as can a worn CV joint).

A grinding noise with brakes is either worn pads causing metal to metal contact on the brake disk/rotor, or the brake backing plate catching on a spinning rotor ... or a loose/missing anti squeal brake shim (they stop the pads from rattling and vibrating).

However, as you say a mechanic has looked at the brakes and can't find anything wrong .. I think I would begin to suspect a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint on the driveshaft (front wheel drive cars).

New brakes and rotors still makes a grinding noise


If you have eliminated the noise coming fom the rear brakes, then the sound in front could be the wheel hub or bearings. When the brakes work, there is a certain amount of centering that happens when the brakes grab the rotor. Also, it puts stress on the CV joint to have Brakes on one side and Transmission Torque on the other.

You need someone to check these 2 items for roughness.

I have a grinding noise in my front left and the vehicle pulls really bad to the left


you most likely need to have your front brakes replace post haste. the grinding noise,does it get worse when you apply the brakes? the grinding noise will be a bad brake rotor and will also make you car pull hard one way or other depending on which brake is worse. recommend highly that you have those brakes looked at. the more you drive it, the worse the problem will be.thank you for choosing fixya.com and please rate my solution thank you!

Grinding noise from front right. rotors seem okay and I can turn the rotor with ease. Is it the wheel bearing?


Does it happen all the time or when brakes are applied? Usally a bad bearing will cause a growling noise. I would check both the brake pads on the right side. Often the inner pad will wear off, then you have metal against metal, causing a grinding noise.

Car pulls right, terrible grinding noise from front right.


TAKE IT BACK WHERE THEY DONE THE LAST LOT OF WORK and tell them to do the complete job again as it sounds like a con job to me as a wheel aligment should last for a year a least and the grinding is in the braking system and something must still be bent ,
Its still under warranty dont pay any more..

Grinding noise front end.


I say it's the CV joints. You have to jack up under the lower A-Arm, to take the spring pressure off of it, to check them.

(Use jack stands, and wheel chocks behind the rear tires. Emergency brake On. Work on a hard level surface. Be SAFE! Trucks can be replaced, YOU cannot!)
