The grinding noise in the rear brake drum means that brake shoes are warn out and the metal part of the shoe is touching the drum. You need to replace it asap as it will damage the inner part of the drum and than replacing shoes will not help without skimming or replacing the drum.

Brakes might need replacing. Grinding sounds come when the pad is on its last skin . It could be the metal that warns you that if you don't replace the brakes soon, you'll be replacing the rotors as well.

Why do I hear grinding noises while driving?


Hit in the rear axle may have damaged bearings or brake parts. Jack up the side you hear noise from, put on stand, then have helper rotate wheel while you look underneath and listen to see where noise is coming from. Use length of old fuel or heater hose, one end in ear, to locate exactly where noise comes from.

Why noise in car when pressing on gas pedal grinding


It's the car pulling to that side? Sticking brake pad possible. When did you have brakes done last off at all? Front brakes go out twice as fast as rear brakes. If you can Charlie jack up that side put car in park, set emergency brake and chock rear tires. Pull off that tire and see if rotor is grooved or scored badly. It may have been sticking and wore down faster. Also check CV BOOT. If torn u joints get dirty and will grind. Hope this was some help.

XL7 has a clicking scraping noise on drivers side in reverse only. Have checked brakes and they look ok. When I put on jacks with the hub off and turn by hand I can still hear the clicking grinding


Where is the noise? Front or back? At the brake or differential? Usually grinding and clicking is the rear brake drums. Brake shoes/hardware. Year, make, and model?

Repack wheel bearings


Sounds like the brakes are binding on that particular wheel. To test for a wheel brg fault. Raise the vehicle when the wheel is cool turn the wheel direction of rotation as fast as you can and hold the shock and feel for a grinding noise. If it is felt then its your wheel brg thats packing up.

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.

Grinding noise from rear. Brake pads? Bearing maybe? Seems to be coming from the passenger side rear wheel area. Any help would be great. Thanks.


Have the rear brakes inspected. These are real easy to change if they need to be. You need to look under the car just outside the differential. This is an inboard brake system so the wheels don't need to be removed.

Loud Grinding noise while driving in rear of vehicle


The bearings should be inside the drum assembly.The brakes do not have to come off. The bearings may have to be pressed out if they are sealed type bearings.

Rear wheel bearings


First check the brakes on that side. You may be hearing the warning rivets on the brake lining. If it's good, You need to remove the axle and go to the machine shop and have a new bearing pressed on. The machine shop should only charge you about $20.00 to do this.
