Question about Chevrolet S 10

1 Answer

I have a squealing/screeching noise at my right front wheel area. Cop stopped my daughter with a warning to get it fixed. It's a 2001 S10. Could this be the brakes? It stops when the brakes are applied.

Brake pads may be worn to the point where the warning indicators are touching down onto the rotor. It's usually a metal strip that rubs on the rotor when the pad wears to the limits, causing a screeching noise as a warning. It'd be easy enough to check by just removing the wheel and inspecting the pads to see. Take it to a mechanic if you're unable to check it yourself.

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).

Squeaking/grinding noise when turning the wheel


Are the front brake pads ok? Some have squeal indicators, it is a tin plate that touches the disc (without damaging) to warn you that the brakes are worn. On the initial stages it will happen more so on slow cornering but will quickly get louder over a matter of days.
Check the pads for thickness, should be min 6mm
