On this vehicle if the tires have been changed out for bigger wheels then you will get the rubbing sound. Its coming from the tires rubbing on the inside of the fender wells.

My 1998 Explorer (165,000 mi.)makes a loud rubbing noise when taking off turning or backing up turning. Clutch plates in rear carrier have been replaced (no change in noise). Front drive shaft removed


I'm not quite sure what you mean by "rubbing" sound. If it's a squeaking type of rubbing, you are more than likely hearing the bushings. The Ford Explorer is known to have the bushings wear down so much that any torque or twist will make this sound. It'll cost a few hundred to fix, mainly because if you'r going to fix one, you should just fix them all.

When I turn my car to the left, it makes a rubbing/ grinding noise.


Check the brake pads by turning the wheel fully to the left and looking at the disc if it is scored you need new pads. Also Jack the car on the left front so the wheel is off the ground and try to rock it side to side if it moves and there is a clicking sound it could be the wheel bearings.

Wheel noise


Check to see if anything is around wheel that could be touching wheel while driving. Make sure rim and wheel fender are clean of debris. Possible cv joint failure, but that makes a clicking noise.

Loud rear rubbing sound at speed.


It sounds like your rear brgs are "tracking". This means that the outer casing of the brgs are turning a bit at regular intervals in the housing. It does not happen when coasting, only under load. Col

Protege5 maual trans makes a rubbing thumping kind of sound when you coast with the car in gear when you put clutch in it stops also makes noise when you turn a little left makes no noise though when you...


Does it make this noise every time you push in on the clutch, or just when coasting?
If it always makes noise when you push in the clutch, it could be the throw out bearing.
But if only coasting and not when turning left a little, then a front wheel bearing is more likely.
The brake will also wear faster, get hotter, feel a little spongy at first hit, and the brake pedal will vibrate if the wheel bearing is going. But if it is a wheel bearing, you can wait until it is worse.

WHEN I TURN WHEEL TO THE LEFT IT MAKES A GRATING SOUND


Sounds like it might be a front left wheel bearing.Check to see that nothing is binding against the steering mechanism first by turning the wheel hard left,block the car,remove the wheel and check for any rubbing.Check the wheel well at this time as well.If the noise got louder over a period of time then it is most likely a wheel bearing or bad CV shaft(if so equiped).Good Luck

2000 Mountaineer makes a rubbing & grinding sound when braking


Brakes & tires are best left to experts as your life depends on them. Get it fixed sooner then it won't be a big $$$$s fix.

My 2001 oldsmobile intrigue will roll backwards fine, but when i go forward the front wheels shudder like something is rubbing. I checked brakes and they are fine.


Try turning the steering completely left and drive forward. See if the car feels like it catches or makes a crunching sound, do the same by turning all the way to the right and check for crunching or snapping noises. If it does, check the axle shafts, the CV joints are more than likely worn out.
Let me know.
