Question about 2005 Dodge Durango

1 Answer

I have a 2005 Durango that has a high pitched squeel in the front wheel areas. The brakes are good which would make one believe they had bad wheel bearings. i have a haynes book that says the hub and bearing assy is a sealed unit. I guess this means i have to change the entire unit. If you have any other ideas as to where the noise is coming from before I tear into the hub assy.

While I usually defer to Haynes myself this usually means the bearings are pressed into the hub. They can still be replaced. If the squeal started as chirping it maybe your brake pads chirper. You still have good brakes for the moment but the little clip that makes contact in the groove to gauge wear is making contact or something has pushed that in. I would start by removing the brake pads and checking that groove first. If it is shinny from contact then replace the pads to make sure that isn't that problem. If your vehicle came with tire pressure sensors make sure that hasn't fallen into the rotor area. Worse case scenario, you get it open and all the brake components are good and you have to change the rotor/hub assembly which is exactly where your at now.

Hyundai accent 2005 when starting up the vechile and driving there is a constant ugly sound coming from the front passenger side wheel and when applying the brakes on there is a high pitch squeel


That screeching sound is a warning that your brake pads are worn down to the point where they should be immediately replaced. If you do not replace the pads, you'll score the rotor and incur an additional expense. Remember to replace the brake pads on both sides, i.e., driver and passenger side.

Metal on metal sounding clicking noise while the wheels are turning but only on the frot driver and passenger wheels. What is going on? It started out only on the passenger side and then after the tire...


Is the noise a screeching high pitch or a growling low pitch?
It sounds to me that the CV joints might be bad and you need brakes.
high pitch would be the brake warning tabs
the low pitch would be the brake pads are gone and you are on the rotors gringing away metal

Squeeling noise in one of the wheels on a 2007 Dodge Durango.


If its a lite squeel and goes away when brakes are applied. Have you had front brakes put on recently. If you have and the rotors were not replaced and turned. Alot of mechanics don't do the final cross hatching on the rotors when they are done turning. This will barke in the pads wrong and cause this even with expensive pads. It will cause premature glazing and have a squeel that will drive you crazy.

There is a high pitched squeel coming from the front of the car when we are moving


This is either a pulley squealing and needs lubrication, or a wheel bearing squeeling, but you will need to take a closer look at where the sound is coming from.

05 wrangler grinding/screeching


it could be your brakes , on most brakes there is a wear tab that makes a high pitched squeeling noise when it contacts the rotor. this is in place to let you know your brakes are due for replacement. if it is not your brakes then it could be a wheel bearing.
