Question about 2007 Honda Pilot

1 Answer

Have a noise coming from the back wheel area. Gets worse as you apply the brakes and almost sounds like it needs new pads or have the rotors turned. But I have had it in 3 times and dealer turned the rotors once and said pads are fine. Third time in he said that it is the Goodyear tires and the they have a bead or something like that on the inside that is rubbing against the wheel rim. Doesn't seem to me to be what it is. The Noise is really annoying. Any ideas?

There is a product sold by autozone.com called 'DE-SQUEAK' by CRC chemicals that sprays on the brake rotors with the caliper off, and when dry will reduce the squeaky noise of applying brakes.

What does your noise sound like?

Are the tires the right size for the car?

Brakes make a whistle noise when applied and sometimes a low grown or grinding when coming to a slow stop or start.


A grinding or rumbling noise can also be symptoms of a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint in a driveshaft. A worn wheel bearing can also cause a 'whistling' sound (as can a worn CV joint).

A grinding noise with brakes is either worn pads causing metal to metal contact on the brake disk/rotor, or the brake backing plate catching on a spinning rotor ... or a loose/missing anti squeal brake shim (they stop the pads from rattling and vibrating).

However, as you say a mechanic has looked at the brakes and can't find anything wrong .. I think I would begin to suspect a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint on the driveshaft (front wheel drive cars).

My car chirps while increasing speed and when I brake my vehicle.


It is possible that the broken tab is your problem because the tabs keep the hardware from moving, especially when you apply the brakes. To determine if this is the case, remove the tire,brake caliper, brake pads, and hardware. Put one of the lug nuts(or two if needed) back on to hold the rotor in place. Spin the rotor by hand and listen for that chirping sound. If you don't hear it, the hardware is the problem. If you can still hear it, check that metal plate that protects the back side of the rotor to make sure its not bent and rubbing against rotor. Also check that nothing is rubbing on the trans-axle(if its front-wheel drive). If all is well in these two places, the only thing left that spins in that area is the wheel bearing. They usually make more of a grinding or roaring sound but sounds can be tricky.. I am a mechanic for a car rental company and often have to diagnose problems by the sound they make. I hope this info is helpful.

Toyota highlander front wheel noise when turning left


Check the brake rotor backing plate to see if it is rubbing against the brake rotor, check the brake pad condition at the same time, it may be the low brake pad sensors that you are hearing.

Dry metal noise coming from front


If the noise gets worse when you apply the brakes, it is probably worn out brake pads. If that is making the noise you have damaged the rotors as well. Plan on replacing brake pads and rotors.

I do think the same way. If the pads look flat and not so worn have the rotor turned to eliminate the squeaksyou are encountering

When I press my brakes I get a grinding sound coming from the wheels.How do I know if it is the forward wheel brake or the back wheel brakes that are worn out?


Slowly apply the park brake while driving in a safe area. If the noise is present the rears are the area of concern as these are the only brakes applied. If the only time the noise is present the brake pedal is depressed, the front brakes need attention.

There is an ABS sensor on each wheel. When you sprayed the WD 40 on it you probably cleaned it so as it would give a correct reading, hence the check engine light going away. The noise you seem to have cured straightening the heat shield away from the exhaust may have been caused by that.
It is possible your engine mounts have deteriorated and allowing the engine to shift. It may have just been too close to the heat shield. On the ABS sensor, the wiring harness plug in sometimes needs to be cleaned and you may have accomplished just that. I certainly would be careful about putting any lubricant close to the brake pads or shoes. Brake material can absorb liquids and cause you a braking failure on that wheel.

04 cavalier makes grinding noise in front end turn the wheel to the right grinding gets worse turn the wheel to the left grinding stops. it sounds worse at 40mph and above. what would cause this?


3 things to check:
Worn disc brake pads, grinding against the rotor.
Wheel bearing
cv joint.
You posted grinding gets worse turning to the right, the problem is the driver side wheel, but it would be best to have both wheeles checked.
