If your pads are rubbing, then this would cause an overheating of the rotor. Which in turn would cause the rotor to warp, and cause a vibration. It would be noticeable when you put on the brakes. vibration at the steering wheel. If it is rubbing this would be caused by the brake hose deteriorating and clogging up, or the caliper is locking up. One other thing that would cause the noise and vibration is that the wheel bearing is going out. Have this checked. To check the bearing you can raise that wheel off the ground, Grab it on the top and bottom and try to move it, (not spin it) up and down, If there is any movement/ play , it's the bearing. Also while it is off the ground, spin it if it is dragging the least little bit and doesn't turn freely the caliper is not releasing entirely, to see if it is the caliper or hose , loosen the bleeder valve on the caliper, if it spins freely then, it's the hose, if it doesn't it's the caliper. Either way I recomend that you replace the hose on both sides, as they are old.Randy

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.

Grinding or rubbing noise in left front wheel, mostly when braking . What do i look for?


Grinding is a sign on brakes in need of replacement. Your pads are worn through and now the metal backing plate of the pad is grinding up against the rotor. Replace the pads and rotors asap to prevent further damage.

My brakes are scrubbing and antilock light comes on, also when ever i back up, my front left wheel makes a very loud noise. kind of like rubbing metal. whats wrong?


the noise is probably the ware sensors on the brake pads making noise the noise lets you know that the brakes are getting thin are are ready to be replaced.if you let this go to long you can damage the brake rotors, make sure you check to make sure the caliper is not sticking on the left side being this side is making more noise ,a stuck caliper can cause premature brake pads ware .

Check the dust shield on the brake rotor's. There known to warp due to the heat of the brakes and will rub against the brake rotors or rim it self. Good luck and hope this helps, the other thing to that would create the squeak is low brake pads indicators rubbing against the rotors and it's time for new brake pads.

My BRAKE light came on and I thought it was my parking brake


Rubbing noise usually indicates that your brake pads has worn down, and it's rubbing against brake rotor. It's more like grinding noise rather than rubbing, right? And for the brake light problem, as brake pads wear down, brake fluid level goes down too. Your car is equiped with a brake fluid level sensor. So, check your brake pad first before adding brake fluid.
