Jack up each wheel and spin it by hand. When you hear that noise that will be a very worn wheel bearing on that wheel that needs to be replaced

Also, a good place to check is the Universal Joints. They are not extremely difficult to change, and are usually less than 30 bucks to replace them both.

Most likely your rear brake shoes are worn down far beyond the min limits and you now have metal to metal contact, which causes the grinding noise, overheating and poor braking. You most likely will need to replace the drums. The other rear wheel will probably be the same.

What makes my 2002 Pontiac Firebird grind when driving and/or turning?


Sounds like a wheel bearing. Jack up front end and spin wheels by hand and listen for grind. Same for rear wheels. Make sure brake linings are good all around. Do the swerve test. Drive down road bout 40mph and swerve moderately one side to other. If noise gets louder with weight shifted to one side more than other its most likely a wheel bearing.

The grinding sound was the metal part of the worn out pads chewing your rotors up. If the sound has stopped, then something is completely gone, probably what was left of the pads. You will most likely need new rotors, Advise you don't drive the car until the brakes are repaired.

from my experience its sounds like ur front rotors may need resurfaceing...if ur doing that...may as well replace the brakes on the front as well...sometimes glazed front brake pads may make a sound but never heard of it as a grind, usually its a squeal...have ur dealer check ur rotors for hot spots in which u would need them replaced if they are overheated..also check the front pads for cracked brake pad material
