Hiya,
More than likely brake pads are worn down to the "wear strip" that is fitted to make that noise to warn you.
Often the wear strip makes contact with the disc when there is still heaps of meat left on the pads. Remove the wheel and with a torch look through the brake caliper to see if you can see how much pad is left. More than 5mm is fine.

Hope this helps

Regards

    Thanks, It ended up being the Cert . Mechanic did not torque one of the 4 wheel bearing bolts down enough! The one worked its way out and was hitting the back plate. All else, the new bearing needs to be replaced agian becouse of some shift. Plus destroyed the bolt head. (Special Order).

    Thanks for getting back,

    ScottM.

Rear wheel clunking noise and squeeling noise sometimes


This sounds like it could either be brakes or a wheel bearing going bad. You can check this by removing the rear wheel and inspecting the brakes making sure the caliper is mounted on tightly and brake rotor isn't showing uneven wear. Also be sure to check the brake pads to make sure that they are not worn down to the squealer tabs. Most new pads are roughly 3/8" -1/2"thick. and will start squealing if at about 1/8"-1/16" thick. If everything checks out fine then check the wheel bearing by simply jacking the wheel up off the ground and grabbing. Now try to move it side to side or up and down, it should have no play what so ever. And spin the wheel to listen for screeching or squealing, it should rotate smoothly with no abnormal noises.

OK, let me be more specific on the front noise on my 2006 Honda Accord, EX, 4cyl. I have 80000 miles and about 3000 miles ago, I started to hear a noise , which I believed was coming from the driver side...


While driving and with radio off, listen to the noise. Find a road that is clear on which you can drive without any traffic. Drive at a constant speed and make light shifts to the left and right, by doing this, the weight of the vehicle will shift to the apposite side of the steering wheel to which you turn.
When you turn to the left, the weight goes to the right (passenger side) wheel, if the noise stops, you may have a bad wheel bearing.
When you turn to the right, the weight goes to the left (driver side), if the noise stops, you may have a bad wheel bearing.
If the noise does NOT go away, then you may have bad CV's.
Another way to check is by lifting and securing in jack stands. Vehicle in neutral and with your hands, rotate wheel with one hand. Other hand place on suspension component. Spring of strut. If you feel slight vibration, you may have a bad wheel bearing.
With vehicle on jack stands, one hand on top of wheel and other on bottom, try to see if you can move the wheel in and out which may be a had CV.

the wheel bearing is worn out.

I may need to replace the front wheel bearing. There is a squeeling sound coming from the front right side of the car.


Normally a squeeling noise coming from the front wheel area would be the front brake disk pads getting too low. Normally when wheel bearings start to fail the noise they produce is more consistant which a growl noise.

Wheel bearing replacement left front wheel Hello Everyone, I may need to replace the wheel bearing on my right front wheel of my Corolla wagon. How can I know for sure? And how can I find out how to do...


Diagnosing the bearings can be tricky depending on severity of wear. Typically - drone noise at highway speeds, squeeling, clicking or grinding noises at low speeds that reduce during braking, or pull off the wheel and brake assembly and check the bearing for slack or smoothness of rotation by hand. While doing this, check the brake assembly thoroughly - generally a more likely culprit of wheel noise.

Wheel bearing replacement is not for the novice backyard mech. - you will need pullers, press, etc. If you can get a rebuilt assembly - much easier.

Front wheel noise


Try getting the grease fittings hit. It sounds like a dry joint to me.
