I am trying to find out what is making my front end grind on passenger side when i drive down the road on 2000 ford taurus


Check the front brake rotor. When the brake pads wear down too far they will make a grinding noise. I am not sure what sound the axle makes when they begin to wear out. I would check the boot that covers the axle joint for any damage.

What is the reason for front grinding when turning


This due to either a worn wheel bearing or a worn front drive arm.

The most common cause of a grinding noise when turning is a worn front wheel bearing. What happens is that the weight of the car is shifted on to that wheel as you make the turn causing the worn bearing to make a grinding noise.

I have a 1998 Honda accord lx 4 cylinder that makes a grinding noise up front only when driving, not while stopped. I have changed brake pads, rotors, calapers, cv joint, and wheel bearings. The tires are...


Is the sound constant with the speed of the vehicle or speed of the engine? Does applying the brakes or turning change the noise? Does the grinding sound like metal to metal contact?

Why does my ford escort give a grinding noise from the front left wheel on braking, with or without the brakes applied?


Your brake squealers are rubbing, telling you it is time to change the pads before they wear down the rotors. If that isn't the sound you got then the bearing is shot and you have less time to fix it because it will weld itself to the spindle and you will have to replace more parts. Hope this helps.

Rubbing/grinding noise


Usually the strut bearing will make this noise upon turning a corner and hitting a rut or pot hole when turning. A wheel bearing will make a low pitched whinning sound constantly

I have a grinding noise in the front drivers side wheel, jus change pads ithink its the wheel hub bearing, what do you thimk?


If the brakes are new check the front wheel bearings ASAP. If they sieze you have massive problems and expensive ones. If the grinding is ther all of the time the bearings are prime suspect.
