2004 Hyundai Santa Fe? squeaky noise frnt driver side wheel

The noise is a squeaky grinding sound coming from the front driver side wheel. The noise seems to change when speed is increased and sometimes when braking. The noise gets louder when I turn left or when the wheel is coming back to straight from a right turn. I have plenty of brake pad and there is no abnormal movement in the steering wheel. The rotor look worn and there are a few shallow grooves you can feel when you run your finger across it. I'm suspect if the rotor is warped and rubbing on the disc brake pad as it rolls.

I do think the same way. If the pads look flat and not so worn have the rotor turned to eliminate the squeaksyou are encountering

What is wrong with 2004 Hyundai santa fe 4wd only front wheels spin hear a noise and see tcs light come on but no change to rear wheels


Sounds like transfer case is not being activated. The vehicle is front wheel drive with an electronic activated transfer case to put power to rear wheels. The traction control (TCS) could also be putting on rear brakes so hard it is not letting them turn but sounds like transfer case not working. Note - If you run these vehicles in air (all wheels off ground) it does not like it and will turn on TCS, stability control, and other things.

Grinding noise from front right. rotors seem okay and I can turn the rotor with ease. Is it the wheel bearing?


Does it happen all the time or when brakes are applied? Usally a bad bearing will cause a growling noise. I would check both the brake pads on the right side. Often the inner pad will wear off, then you have metal against metal, causing a grinding noise.

Brake problem


ask the guy who did your brakes if he replaced your rotorsif not have them turned if they cant turn them replace them ....question what side of the car does it seem to be coming from... if the brake guy never replaced the rotors you could have one that is warped or even cracked. also have the wheel bearings checked out (caution ) if a wheel bearing freezes up it can if you are traveling at a high rate of speed put the car into a spin..another thing it could be is a warped rim inspect the inside surface of the rim and make sure it is not contacting the dust plate also check spindals it would save you considerable expence if you can detect where its coming from . jack the car up even if you have to do this one wheel at a time block it up so the wheels are off the ground and spin the wheels by hand and listen for and watch for abnormalities....if its not in spindals rotors or rim hitting backing plate chances are its in the pilot shaft of the tranny. good luck i hope this helps and keep me posted mrdmburns@cableone.net
