I have seen the brake hose collapse internally and prevent the fluid from leaving the caliper. Replace the hose.

Never never never do just 1 side on brakes it is not only your life you mess with but many others too . that brake is much tighter than the opposite side causing heat which will cause failure

SOURCE: Would noise be wheel bearing

Yes it could be but to be sure, i would jack the car up and pull and push on the tire and see if it moves at all.

SOURCE: 2003 Pontiac Montana Front Wheel Bearings

Remove the wheel, remove the hub nut, remove the brake caliper and rotor, put your socket and extension through the hub flange onto the bearing retainer bolts, undo them, release the abs sensor connector if it has it, remove the bearing and hub flange as an assembly, put the new one on and go backwards from here. Torque the hub nut to 180 ft/lbs, your done.

SOURCE: 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 .

SOURCE: weird noise in front of car

How would changing the rear pads fix a noise in the front? Take the front wheels off and look for excess rust on the discs or grit in or on the pads. It sounds like you might be competent enough to take the calipers off (it's not very hard). If the noise gets louder with speed, it could very well be the bearings. This is much harder to do yourself (yay FWD), and you might want to get it towed so you don't damage the hubs, etc. Just shaking the wheel probably isn't enough to diagnose bad bearings.

SOURCE: front wheel bearings bad

if it gets louder when you turn left then the right front wheel bearing is bad and vice versa it gets louder when the weight shifts to that wheel

COULD BE THE BRAKE PAD WEAR INDICATOR AS THE PADS MIGHT BE CLOSE FOR REPLACEMENT. ALSO A ROCK CAUGHT IN BRAKE/CALIPER AREA CAN CAUSE THE NOISE AS WELL.

My brakes are scrubbing and antilock light comes on, also when ever i back up, my front left wheel makes a very loud noise. kind of like rubbing metal. whats wrong?


the noise is probably the ware sensors on the brake pads making noise the noise lets you know that the brakes are getting thin are are ready to be replaced.if you let this go to long you can damage the brake rotors, make sure you check to make sure the caliper is not sticking on the left side being this side is making more noise ,a stuck caliper can cause premature brake pads ware .

Front right tire makes a grinding noise , hub assembly has been replace problem stills there, what will be the problem?


It could be a lemon replacement hub or it could actually be the tire. Check the tires tread for irregular wear patterns. If the hub was loose prior to change this could easily cause the tire to wear in a "choppy" fashion which can also cause a rough humming sound that I have often heard customers refer to as a grinding sound.

I replaced my front btake(both) 6 month ago when driving loud noise coming from the fronti can feel the brade pad grinding against the rotor when I turn


If you Failed to Tighten Any 1 of the Caliper Floater BOLTS and it Has Fallen Out This Will Cause the Noise you Discribe. Remove the Wheel from the SIDE YOU SUSPECT the NOISE is Coming From and INSPECT the Caliper and Pads, If the Bolts ARE there and Tight Check the Brake PADS and If they are Worn DOWN to Metal The Problem Is LIKEKY the Caliper Has SIEZED UP and Needs REPLACED along With Brake PADS and ROTOR.

Hello i have a 2002 mitsubishi montero sport when it gets hot it makes noise when i turn more when i turn right then left and only when it is hot it sound like a cv joit maybe dont know o it only makes...


It also could be the brake rotor rubbing on the caliper pads as you turn, check the brakes before changing the cvu joint if the pad are worn and don't have much meat left replace them the noise may go away.
