What you may be thinking is metal is just hard pads,,,or even dry pads? try striping the barkes out and putting a thin smear of "copper grease" on the back's of the brake pads before you refit them,,,,the copper grease stops the pads from screeming when you push the brake's down,,,,only put grease on the backs of the pads dont get any grease on the brake pad fronts!!!

What could be causing the squeeking in front driverside when applying the brakes to stop at a stop sign or to slow down for a turn

it could be sand or a rock but more than likely the brakes are wore down to where the wear indicator (a little metal tab on the caliper) is rubbing. its letting you know its about time for new brakes. try to bleed the brakes and if that don't work, you may have to replace the brake pads. good luck.

Sound like metal rubbing coming from front end of 2002 kia optima at times. had it checked but nothing found

Just about time to replace Brake pads. There is a warning sound made by thin brake pads that is a squeak when the brake is applied. Also, if the rotors are rusty, there will be a squeak that will away after a while. Either sound is intermittent.

Front wheel noise

The first thing I would do is inspect the brakes. The brake pads have a metal indicator that will start to rub when the pads get low. It will make a really annoying high pitch squeal. It could also be a condition known as metallic squeal. This would be a metallic particle in the brake pad that is causing the noise. Replacing the pads is a guaranteed fix for this. It could also be a backing plate rubbing or any number of things. Checking the brakes would be a good first step. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

2003 camry with 200,000 miles has rubbing noise not the brakes wondering if a cv joint or u joint problem

If you have a rubbing noise on the BRAKES then its most likely the pads worn out and touching the metal backing plate ,other wise it could be the wheel bearing worn or coming loose but the CV Joint if worn will make a clanking noise when turned on full lock either Left or Right.
So jack it up at the front and check the wheel bearings and turn the wheel to see if the noise is there as it will be a metal to metal noise ,but if pads are good then it will just be a soft rubbing noise.

Rear end is making a grinding noise

Most probabally the rear brakes are worn off. Take the wheels and brake drums off and check.

Scrapping noises as i am driving and when i turn the corner the sound gets lower

Sounds to me that the brake pads could be the issue. They have a small metal stand that scrapes on the brake drums when it is time to change them. If it is the brakes and you continue to drive with them in that condition, they could cut into your rotors causing more damage. To check, remove the front tire and inspect the brake drum, it should be smooth surfaced with no grooves. You should also be able to inspect the pads themselves. With the tire removed, insert your head to the back of the rotor assembly. There should be an area where you can see the thickness of the brake pads and they should be 1/4 in or more if still in good condition. Otherwise I would replace them.

Squicking bracks

Sometimes brake dust or dirt builds up and causes this, other times the rotors become overheated and polished surfaces rubbing together make harmonic noise (squeeling). Another problem could be the higher metal content in the pads (if you just replaced with metallic pads) and this is normal squeeking. But if you think the problem is recent and no brake work is suspect, you'll need to raise the front and remove the two tires and inspect. Even if your brake sensor light is not on, check the thickness of the pads by looking through the back of the brake caliper. You should see at least 1/4' pad. If no pad is present you've found the problem, and don't drive any further until you've replaced the pads. If you have pad life, take an emery cloth or 220 higher sand paper and go around the rotor surfaces lightly enough to remove any shine. Spray liberally with brake cleaner the rotors and brake calipers and pads. Reassamble and do the rear brakes. Finally, if that doesn't work, you should check the back of the pad to see if any anti-vibration grease or paste is present. This acts as a dampner to the vibration and holds the pad slightly tighter in the brake caliper.

Hi, I have a toyota corolla 2003 that's making a metallic sound in the driver's side rear when turning right in reverse

Check your brake pads and or brake rotors. They may be bad or your rim on is rubbing on the shock absorber. Also check the lug nut's on your rims they could be loose to where the tire is rubbing against the brake rotors or shock absorber.

Good Luck!
