You most likely need to have your front brakes replace post haste. the grinding noise,does it get worse when you apply the brakes? the grinding noise will be a bad brake rotor and will also make you car pull hard one way or other depending on which brake is worse. recommend highly that you have those brakes looked at. the more you drive it, the worse the problem will be.thank you for choosing fixya.com and please rate my solution thank you!

There is a grinding noise from the front of the vehicle while driving. All new brakes. The wheel bearings have been checked and are fine.


Is it more like a vibration and humming, than grinding noise? If so it would be a bad engine or transmission mount. To check bearings while driving.. Find an empty parking lot, Make right and left turns/circles. Making a left, if the noise get loader, the right side bearing is bad. and vice versa. Do around 10 MPH while turning circles.

2004 dodge intrepid front end noise


Without a description of the noise, this is impossible to diagnose. Common problem with these vehicles is a "grinding" type noise. This will be a bearing that has gone bad or brake pads that are beyond the service life (louder screeching or grinding upon braking). Popping noises are the CV drive axles are bad (noise is typically louder when when the vehicle is in motion and turning).

Vibration/Humming/Grinding noises when stopping or turning left.


when turning left vehicle distributes weight to right front wheel bearing causing load. since u describe a noise in right front while driving straight i would suspect failed right front wheel bearing. see if your noise changes/goes away while turning right that should tell u 4 sure

The left front hub/bearing assembly was just replaced on our 2001 ford escape 4wd and it got rid of the loud grinding noise when you turned corners at hiway speed. now the issure is at all speeds, if you...


The hub bearing is usually pressed in and can be pressed too much and damaged.
Also,you may want to check to see if your brakes are worn out on the front which could also be making this noise.

Popping and grinding when i turn the steering wheel to the left. worse when the car is warm


I know on older cars that popping noise from the front end is often the cv joint, which is used in front wheel drive vehicles. Get it checked quick. The grinding noise could be a bad brake pad, which also needs to be checked a.s.a.p. Good Luck.
