When driving, especially when turning, my equinox maske a loud "scraping" noise much like that of the starter trying to engage. When starting the car, the same "scraping" noise is noticable. Any clues??


You may have a wheel bearing going out. There a gravel shield that sits real close to the brake rotors. If the bearing get excess play in it will allow the spindle to tilt and the rotor will rub on the gravel shield. Look for fine metal shavings by each wheel. Another possibility is you, or someone driving your vehicle, hit something on the road and bent one of the gravel shields so now it rubs on the rotor. But, being it gets worse when turning I'm betting on wheel bearing. If you see metal by one of the wheels, jack that wheel off the ground and see if you have noticable shake in the wheel, top to bottom.

ABS and Traction Control Light On


Because the brakes were changed, either one of the sensors were broken when removing brakes or it has set a code. Go to your local autoparts store and have them reset the code. See if it comes back on. If it does you will need to look at the ABS sensors on each wheel and replace if damaged

Trouble removing a 2005 Equinox front Rotor?


if there are no screws visible on the hub of the rotor, its just seized from rust, get some pb blaster and lightly spray around the hub and the lug nut studs, then whack away with a hammer on the hub of the rotor, not the rotor itself unless you plan on replacing the rotor

Where and how to change cabin filter chevy equinox


Hiya...the cabin air filter is located below the front passenger/windshield area.
It's only accessible by standing outside the Equinox with the hood open.
Here's how to do it...(before you pop open the hood)

1) Stand outside at the front-right door area.
2) Just below the front windshield area, pull up a few small black plastic clips that's on the black windshield wiper cowl area- a small flat screwdriver or a special clip-remover tool is handy.
3) Raise the hood up.
4) There may be a triangular-shaped hard foam sound damper at the left side nearby the hood hinge...pull it off if it allow you to work around it with ease.
5) Continue to find a few black plastic clips around the black windshield wiper cowl area.
6) Gently pull up the black windshield wiper cowl cover with care not to bend it too hard during removal.
7) You should see the cabin air filter inside that's held in place by a black rectangular box inside.
8) There's 2 black tabs that holds the cabin air filter in place.
9) Insert your finger or tool to pry the cabin air filter away from the tabs.
10) Remove old cabin air filter.

Remember to reinstall the clip parts back into place when you're finished.

Without looking at it, you may have one or more of the following:

Rust on the inside edge of the rotor (most common)

Worn front brake pads

Front wheel bearing problem.

Backing plate (behind rotor) rubbing the rotor

These are the most common causes, you can see 1,2 & 4 with the wheel off.

Hope this helps.
