When both a scraping and grinding noise is heard from a wheel, it typically indicates a problem with the brakes, not the bearings. If when the brakes are applied, the noise changes, it does indicate a possible brake issue. I would first check the brakes and then take a close look at the bearings, as they can still cause the grinding noise, but not typically the scraping noise. Hope this is helpful.

Hi, you could be right but their is also something else it could be if the brake disk and pads are low then this could also be causing the noise check for any grroves in the brake disk if their are grooves then this needs replacing along with the pads.

If your pads are ok then check their is no rust along the outer edge of the disk as this can cause the noise also if their is a build up of rust running along the outer edge of disk then gently tap this off with small hammer then with the wheel jacked up off the floor spin it with your hand and listen for the noise.
Also try wiggling the wheel as if you was trying to turn it by hand and check for any play also do this from top to bottom as well any play would indicate bearing failure.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

2005 Ford Explorer is making a grinding noise


I had some issues with my 2005 explorer left rear. It was making a creepy old door sound at low speeds and then a high pitched whisel at high speeds. That turned out to be a broken wheel bearing and had it replaced. Note each wheel has two wheel bearings. After that a new noise developed that sounded like metal scraping/ grinding metal. It end up being the brake dust cover got bent when they replaced the bearing and it was rubbing something, the fix for that was bending it so it didn't rub. I hope this helps.

Noise coming from rear passenger side wheel


Could be a bad wheel bearing or defective brake components. Jack the wheel up, spin it, and listen for the noise. If a 'scraping' sound, it is likely brakes. If more of a rumbling, grinding sound, then check the bearings. These are a greased-for-life bearings, so replacement is the only option. Hope this helps!

Grinding noise passenger side front


Check wheel bearing.
Check backing brake plate , sometimes it's bended and touching brake rotor.
If wheel bearing is bad , you may have same effect with backing plate , brake rotor touch backing plate.

Noise from offside rear wheel when turning, it sounds like a bearing but we don't think it is that, its not really a 'knocking' more of a scraping, grinding sound. Its not continious, seems to occur mainly...


Have the front brakes checked alot of times the brake pads wear down to the point that the wear warning indicator starts to rub on the rotor or disc and makes a scraping sound when turning, your front brake pads are due to be replaced, I am 80% sure.

Rumbling & grinding under front end


Watch out! You might have a loose wheel! Check those wheel nuts. If not, a loose brake caliper, or last if not least, a bad wheel bearing. Don't drive it until you find out what the heck is wrong! Could be dangerous.

Scraping pulse noise r front merc sable


Check the condition of the wheel bearings, front and back side if the brake rotor, and the back side of the rim. Everything should be clean, rust build-up can throw everything out of true. The hub or wheel-bearing should be tight and smooth when spun.

I Think I have a front wheel bearing problem


Check wheel bering for play if there is no play , it doesn't mean that bearing is NOT bad its can still be dry and would be making that grinding sound you described Also check axle and see if boot is broken. That may be your problem also make sure that rotors are not gouged/scraped up and pads are good.Contact if you need more help and thanks for using FIX YA

Scraping sound at very low speed (5MPH)


I have personally seen a lot of wheel bearings go bad on these vehicles. If you hear the noise get more pronounced when turning left, the right front (passenger side) bearing is most likely the culprit- if turning right, it would be the left front (driver side) bearing.

Hope this is helpful!!
