Is this a swish swish noise associated with speed of rotation of the wheel. Often if you are passing a wall whilst driving down the road and take the window down the noise will be reflected back to you. Feather the brakes very gently until the noise is pronounced. My guess is that the wheel bearing has bedded in and the stub axle nut could do with a bit of tightening up. Once you have located the wheel that is causing the noise lift that corner of the car so the wheel is just free to freely rotate. Spin the wheel and listen for the tell tale noise. Tighten the central nut until some resistance to rotation is felt ease the nut back until free motion is felt again ease the nut by a single flat from this point. Now rotate the wheel the again and listen. Basically this process reduces excessive play in the bearing. Excessive bearing play allows the wheel hub to wander a tiny fraction allowing the disc to make contact with the brake shoe, hence the noise. Once the play is reduced this intermittent contact should disappear

My car chirps while increasing speed and when I brake my vehicle.


It is possible that the broken tab is your problem because the tabs keep the hardware from moving, especially when you apply the brakes. To determine if this is the case, remove the tire,brake caliper, brake pads, and hardware. Put one of the lug nuts(or two if needed) back on to hold the rotor in place. Spin the rotor by hand and listen for that chirping sound. If you don't hear it, the hardware is the problem. If you can still hear it, check that metal plate that protects the back side of the rotor to make sure its not bent and rubbing against rotor. Also check that nothing is rubbing on the trans-axle(if its front-wheel drive). If all is well in these two places, the only thing left that spins in that area is the wheel bearing. They usually make more of a grinding or roaring sound but sounds can be tricky.. I am a mechanic for a car rental company and often have to diagnose problems by the sound they make. I hope this info is helpful.

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.

2005 Dodge Ram 1500 4x2 - Drivers side front wheel feels like it is catching on something.


Have you not looked over the brakes & even taken
things apart, looking for & eliminating brakes as an issue?
Checked drive axles,joints,etc.
Tires won't make a noise & brakes are not near the wheel,
to touch anything
New wheel hubs are ruined by mechanics obsessed with those
air driven impact guns,you need to use a torque wrench on the
axle nut of a new bearing

Rubbing noise on drivers side coming from wheel


Could be a bad bearing or a brake dragging. Roll the car slowly with the engine off. Walk beside the car and if you hear the noise, you'll be able to tell more about it if the engine is off. Try pushing on the brake pedal as the car is being pushed and see if the noise changes.
If it does, then you can eliminate one cause.

How to check front bearings on 2000 kia sportage


hi there, there are two ways to check your bearings, 1, is to jack up the vehicle so the wheel is free of the ground and to check for any play or roughness in the bearing by spinning the wheel, if the bearing is worn then you will hear a droning noise, 2 is to drive along a quiet road, at a speed where you can hear the noise, gently turn the steering from left to right so the vehile load is being shifted from one side to the other, if you have a wheel bearing fault the noise's pitch will alter,hope this helps
