2003 yamaha v star 650 classic rear brake noise.


check the wheel bearings
it indicates that the hub is moving sideways on the axle allowing the side of the shoe to contact the inside side of the drum thereby making the noise

I left my parking brake on for a few hundred yards and I heard a snap. Now the rear of the car drives very bumpy.


You likely ruined an axle bearing. Very serious.
It is also possible that you damaged brake components. Equally serious.
Have the car TOWED (do not drive it) to a garage for inspection.

Absstayson/1998grandprix


Most likely causes:
Front wheel hubs need replaced (do both at one time)
Front rotors warped or worn (change rotors and pads both wheels together)

The noise from the brakes dragging or the wheel bearings humming gets picked up by the abs sensors in the hubs before you can hear them. A few hundred miles later, the problem will get worse enough to hear while driving. Wheel hub replacement best done on a lift with an enormous impact wrench. 23952739-za4bqvjhdrn3arnyccyp5xaz-2-0.jpg

Your brake shoe may have failed and is getting wedged in your brake drum. I have had this happen to me.

I have a 99" Ford Windstar LX, When I press on the brakes the pedal shakes and it makes a grinding noise after driving a few miles the abs light goes on. I have replaced, pads, rotors, master cylinder,...


if you replaced all the brake parts I would check your hub bearings and cv axels if the noise is coming from front if the noise is in the rear check your e brake shoes located inside of the rear brake rotors if u have disc rear brakes or your rear brake bearings .. hope this helps

Front end noise when turning. almost sounds like


There are a couple of things to cause metallic sounds when turning. First thing, is if it's a clicking sound when you turn, then you have a cv joint going bad. It's usually more prominent when moving in reverse, however it can happen just as well while moving forewards. Secondly, if it's more of a grinding or scraping noise, we have a couple of options. The sound could be coming from the brakes, if they're worn or have grit stuck in them, or it could be bad bearings in the front wheel hub. The wheel hub has a tendency to making a whining noise when driving; usually most easily heard when driving past buildings. They can also allow the tire/wheel to present the appearance of leaning when looking at it. If bad enough, it can even rub on the brake caliper, or cause the disc brake rotor to wear out the brake pads prematurely. So, to recap: Check:
CV joints, if a clicking sound brakes or wheel hub bearings if grinding or whining sound.

The AWD disabled light keeps going off & on periodiacally while I am driving and the brakes sometimes want to pump up...what is causing this ?


Rear wheel hub(s) will cause the AWD light to come on and sometimes off. After awhile that light will just stay on until you get the rear wheel hub replaced. You can either have a dealer do it for approx $500.00 or you can get the part at AutoZone for $129.00 and do it yourself. This will turn off the AWD light and also quiet the rear noise you hear.

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 BRAKE DRUM WON,T COME OFF


Ok you've some of what I would do, but try this. First AGAIN spray with a good penetating oil, the hub, the lug studs, now a rubber is going to do less than nothing. Take a GOOD size METAL hammer ( would use a 5lb sledge ) and LIGHTLY tap the BACK edges ( edge closest to shock absorber ) True hitting the drum too hard can cause damage. You have to be gentle but strong. If it still didn't move ( you better have removed any clips on the studs :) I would take a BIG flat blade screwdriver between the drum and brake backing plate, and kind of persude that drum with my hammer, while pry it off. Hope this helps
