Question about 2009 Chevrolet Traverse
I am not sure what kind of noise you are talking about as you did not post it. Jack up the car. grab the wheel top and bottom and try to move it. do the same side to side. if it will go up and down you either have a bad bearing, or a bad ball joint-if it move side to side, you have a bad tie rod. Pull off the wheel. Check that the pads are still good. Grab the brake caliper and try to move it. if it moves-check that the tightness of the bolts that hold it to the A-frame. If the pads are not worn, and everything else is tight, what you are most likely hearing is the metal in the pads grinding against the rotors, or brake dust buildup.If it is a squealing noise, Using a air compressor with a blower tip, blow out the caliper. You may also(for large buildup of brake dust) get a can of break cleaner and spray off the rotor and caliper. If grinding(and the pads are good), It may also have lost the noise reduction pad behind the brake pad that reduces that noise. This will not hurt the vehicle, but if you want it fixed, you will have to replace the pads, and have the rotor turned at you local brake shop, machine shop, or parts store. Usually about $5-$10 per rotor.
