Question about Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

My 2004 Dodge Caravan is making a very loud noise that sounds like metal grinding against metal and the noise is coming from the right rear. The noise isn't continuous, but when it happens, it's scary. A dealership is telling me I need new front brake pads. This doesn't seem logical to me. Help!

It could well be in need of new brake pads however this would be noticable more when you apply the brakes if the sound is in the rear its not the front brakes it could also be your wheel hub bearings are past there used by date its a serious problem and needs attension right away

That sound is going to be your door lock motors wearing out. I would suggest getting them replaced pretty quickly as they will soon stop locking altogether. It's not cheap, but it isn't horribly expensive either.

Have the brakes inspected. When the lining has been used up, the metal of the pads or shoes against the rotor or drum sounds like grinding inside the vehicle.

If your getting a grinding noise when turning it's probably in the power steering. If you leaking fluid you have a hole, more then likely in the high pressure line or the rack and pinion is bad.

Sure sounds like you need new brake pads. On the brake pad is a small metal tab that contacts the rotor and squeals when the pads need to be changed. Hope this helps. Please keep me posted. Good luck
