Brakes make a whistle noise when applied and sometimes a low grown or grinding when coming to a slow stop or start.


A grinding or rumbling noise can also be symptoms of a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint in a driveshaft. A worn wheel bearing can also cause a 'whistling' sound (as can a worn CV joint).

A grinding noise with brakes is either worn pads causing metal to metal contact on the brake disk/rotor, or the brake backing plate catching on a spinning rotor ... or a loose/missing anti squeal brake shim (they stop the pads from rattling and vibrating).

However, as you say a mechanic has looked at the brakes and can't find anything wrong .. I think I would begin to suspect a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint on the driveshaft (front wheel drive cars).

A rattle somewhere between the brake pedal and the maste cylinder. Brakes and all busings between master cylinder and wheel have been checked and rebuilt, struts need replacing but the rattle is not


Hi , I cant think of anything between the pedal and booster that would cause this noise,does the steering wobble ? if so could be something in that system , wheel bearings ok ? this is a tough one to diagnose without hearing it
