Not sure about this one, as you haven't said where the scraping comes from, left or right, front or back. But it seems that it could be one of the tires may be touching a fender or it could be a wire caught in between the wheels and the brake housing, or perhaps it may be a piece of scrap metal caught somewhere. You have no idea how many things can get caught under the car. However, if it is internal scraping, have a friend or family member to listen while you do these turns in an empty car park. You'll find the culprit in no time.

SOURCE: noise while turning

Probably a wheel bearing, seems common as I am doing one in my shop right now and he just had one done on the other side.

yes when you make the absoulute full turn your hearing like a hissing noise this is normal if this is what your hearing then problem solved but if has a different sound than that like a rubbing sound then check the fender wells to see is there is any rub marks this can be corrected by putting in a turn stopper

SOURCE: 2004 pontiac grand am car will not start

the security light will flash and disable the fuel injectors preventing the car from starting, if it thinks that it is being stolen. its easy to fix. set the parking brake to turn off the automatic headlights. next turn the key to the on position and wait ten minutes. the security light should stop flashing. then turn the key off and this will reset the security system. it should start immediatly afterwards.

My 2004 grand prix gt2 right rear makes a knocking noise and vibrates when I hit over 50 mph, what could this be? My boyfriend think wheel baring..

see if the noise goes away in a right hand curve, if it does its probably wheel bearing,because you will be lifting weight off it in the turn, also check to see if you have a bubble or seperation in the tire.

I have a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am. I have constant hum of road noise problem when I drive over 45 mph. I thought it was the tires & replaced all 4 tires with new tires. The hum quiets down if I trun to...

sounds like a right front wheel bearing. when you turn to the left it puts more load on the right bearing. when you turn to the right it puts more load on the left bearing. These are a bolt in style bearing and they are fairly easy to replace.

If you think you would like to give it a try let me know and I'll get you some instructions.

2004 grand am weird noise

Have you noticed if the noise changes while doing a swerve to the left or right ? If so , it is likely a wheel bearing & will require replacement of the entire hub .
