Pads installed incorrectly or the backing shield got bent when brakes were installed. Raise the vehicle and spin each wheel to find the one making the naise. Now remove the wheel and spin it again and see whats making contact.

check that you havent bent the baking plate behind rotor or drum that it is just touching the disc rotor and any anti rattle clips on brake caliper that they are fitted correctly.

SOURCE: Hear a grinding noise from the right front wheel

You should definitely pull the front wheel and check the bearings (they are roller bearings, not ball bearings). With the wheel off, you should be able to isolate where the noise is coming from, but I vote for the bearings. Check, replace and/or repack, and adjust properly. If you have noise, you should be able to feel the "play" in the bearings, or see the wear problem on the spindle and bearings. I hope this helps you.

When i drive there is a loud grinding by front right wheel. what could this be?


There are a few possibilities.
The brake pads have worn down and there is now metal to metal contact with your brake disk/rotor

The driveshaft is worn

The wheel bearing has worn

A grinding noise - when braking - is usually associated with worn brake pads.

If the grinding noise is there while you drive without braking, it could be the brake pads/rotors, yes .. but it also may point to the wheel bearing or driveshaft itself.

You can raise the car, after removing the wheel, and look at the brake pads/rotor.

However, sir, if you can't do these mechanical things yourself, please do go to a workshop. The value of your life far outweighs the cost of repair

2004 jeep grand charokee grinding noise when


ok, think about mass that moves under the forces of braking, things like engines and gearboxes, have you checked all those mounts for integrity, have a look to see if anything has been rubbing, new shiney spots appearing that weren't there before.

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.

Loud noise in the front wheel


first, check your brake pads, the grinding starts when the pad is worn to the rivets that hold it, then the pad starts to crack and break away. once the pad is gone there will be play that allows whats left of the pad to move around.. causing the thump, there should also be some change under braking, like going from a thump to a grind

this could also be wheel bearings.. but my guess would be the pads, and if it got to that point.. i would bet that the rotor is shot as well

I was wondering on a alero 99 , i replaced the brakes and a caliper and fixed my brake lines but my abs light is on but it sounds like a airplain when u drive their is no shaking or grinding in the front...


YEP BAD WHEEL BEARING WILL MAKE A ROARING LIKE NOISE WHILE IN MOTION.BAD WHEEL COULD PUT DRAG ON WHEEL WHICH CAUSE ABS LIGHT TO COME ON.YOUR WHEEL BEARING HAS THE WHEEL SPEED SENSOR BUILT INTO IT.SO IF WHEEL BEARING BAD THE WHEEL SPEED SENSOR PART OF ABS BRAKE SYSTEM WILL CAUSE ABS LIGHT TO COME ON IF WHEEL BEARING BAD.MAKE SURE FRONT BRAKE PADS INSTALLED CORRECTLY IF NOT. YOU WILL GET TERRIBLE WHEEL NOISE ALSO.

WHy dose my brake pedal push back and make a grinding noise


Look through the openings in your front wheels and look at the front rotors-are they gouged up? You are probably running metal-to-metal, pads to rotors.
Chances are real good your rotors will have to be replaced along with new pads, but if you catch it early enough you might be able to have them machined, although nowadays that is hardly easy to get done and the savings usually is not as significant as it once was.

How do i fix a squeeky wheel, possibly bearing?


A bearing typically has more of grinding type of rumble rather than a squeek.

Try checking your brakes...the caliper may not be releasing completely. Cleaning them can solve the problem and prevent premature wear.
