No recalls that I know of, but you can always call the dealer, give them the VIN number and they can tell you of any outstanding recalls.. if you have thep ads off in your hand an spin the wheel and you hear grinding noises, then I would say the bearing is bad.

If the rotors are bad, you will see the grooves and bad wear patterns,,, then you need to replace the pads and have the rotors turned. If the bearings are bad you can feel them when you rotate the tires... and the tires will have "play" and feel loose when you rock them while jacked up.

Why do I hear grinding noises while driving?


Hit in the rear axle may have damaged bearings or brake parts. Jack up the side you hear noise from, put on stand, then have helper rotate wheel while you look underneath and listen to see where noise is coming from. Use length of old fuel or heater hose, one end in ear, to locate exactly where noise comes from.

My volvo v70 2002 is showing the warning 'abs/anti-skid service reqd', also the driver side front wheel makes a screeving sound not unlike worn doiwn pads on discs when making a right or left


Felix any noise coming from the front wheel while turning leaves me thinking front constant velocity joint if the car is front wheel drive. With the abs light on I would take down the front driver side wheel and check the brakes for wear along with the front wheel bearing assembly for play or loosness, Check for the sensors to make sure they havent came off and are rubbing your rotors as you make your turn. It can be a number of things. Usually when its the front constant velocity joint it makes a popping noise as if something is binding. As for the front wheel bearing assembly it could make noises usually after the car has been ran down the road and heated up the bearing then it will sing to you. But as you mentioned about the noise only during turning I would lean towards constant velocity joint or sensor hanging and rubbing the rotor, Its only one way to find out. Hope this helps.

2003 Merc Mountaineer AWD Grinding coming from left front tire. Tires, brakes, rotors all less than a year old, could it be a hub/bearing assembly or something different? Thanks in advance.


Hi and welcome to FixYa!
Looks like a wheel bearing issue. If the wheel bearing is worn out you can expect a grinding sound. Wheel bearing replacement is strongly recommended.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I would start by checking the wheel bearings or brakes and rotors and the worst case your four wheel drive is stuck engaged (Happened to my brothers awd impreza- half shaft boot tore filling with dirt and debris) , to check wheel bearings, jack up that corner by safely placing the jack on the frame. then try and shake the tire. if it doesn't have any play then check your rotors by feeling carefully inside the brake dust shield. if your rotor is bad then it will be uneven due to bear pad rivets. as far as transfer-case issues, shift into neutral let off the brake and put it into 4x4 low then move ten feet then shift back into 2x4. if stuck then it is a half shaft issue.

Noise coming from brakes so I replaced the brakes and rotors and now I am still getting a noice coming from that direction.


You did not specify front or back, or whether the noise happens when braking, or changes when braking...But my though is wheel bearings may be your actual issue...

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.

Thumping at front passenger wheel area


if the noise isassociated with "wheel speed" then it is in the rolling parts... axle hub bearing brake rotor caliper wheel or tires...if it goes away on right turns then you are unloading or separating the issue then...so a hub /wheel bearing /axle issue is most likely...does your brake pedal pulse when you feel it..(riding the brake while driving)..does the steering wheel shimmy ?

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.
