I would recommend looking at a couple of things.Take a look at the dust plate to be sure its not rubbing the rotor.Second make sure that your calipers aren't getting stuck in the out position.It might be beneficial to lube the caliper pistons to allow for free movement.If you have a floating caliper system then also lube the slide pins.And lastly make sure that everything as far as attaching hardware is tight.

I HAVE A 1998 CHEVY CAVALIER. I JUST REPLACED THE BRAKE BOOSTER, MASTER CYLINDER AND ABS BOX AND BACK DRUM BRAKES. WHEN I APPLY THE BRAKE IT GIVES A CLICKING NOISE AND GRABS REAL BAD ON BACK RIGHT SIDE....


manually adjust the rear brakes up to just touching the drums the drums .en turning the drum a very slight scrape would be about right. Adjust both sides evenly. I hope that you assembled the brake shoes correctly

Grinding or scraping noise comin from rearend 1998 chevy Z71


Clutches in a diff only work when you are going around corners or when on wheel is slipping. so in normal straight ahead driving they are not working. I would be checking for a failed axle bearing of brake worn and failing

While I am driving when I am pressing the gas pedal it makes a scraping noise but not all the time. If I hit the brakes it will stop. I have a 2001 Nissan Sentra GXE


Sounds like it might be the low brake pad indicator. A small flap of metal which is made to scrape the rotor when the brake pads reach a certain low level. When brackes are applied the noise typically quiets.
Check for worn front brake pads.

My 99 accord's wheel squeals while driving but stops as soon as i press the brakes. Sometimes the noise will stop after driving a few miles but other times it wont make the noise at all.


have your brake pads checked out, often they are so close to finnished that they make a noise when not applied, as soon as you apply them they press on the last bit of padding left and the noise goes away.

2002 aurora, ticking/buzzing noise from front of car. louder with increased vehicle speed, but not affected by engine rpm. checked brakes, calipers, pads, tires, all look good. transaxle fluid level...


so it has some to do with rotation. you can jack one front wheel up, set parking brakes, start the car and put in drive. which ever side make noise, that's the one you need to inspect cv-axle, wheel bearing, ect.
check any thing that turns with the wheel

Rubbing noise coming from frontend


rubbing or scraping noise when the brakes are applied could mean that you need new brakes. On your truck, the brakes would be needed at about 60,000 miles and you really should have the rear brakes redone then as well. Otherwise, check to make sure that nothing got wedged up into your wheel well.....You really haven't given alot of info to go on..

Weird noises in drive and reverse


The high pitched whine in reverse sounds normal for a honda. Ever honda I have had makes a similar noise while in reverse. The spinning, scraping noise in drive is not normal. You might want to see a mechanic about that.

93 Grand Caravan right rear wheel/brake problem(s)


well i can help with problem #2

even if you tightened the wheel bearing, it is probably worn out..

what it does when it's loose is you won't hear much noise when you drive on a strait road but the minute you put some weight on it, like when you take a curve, the weight of the body is applied on the bearing resulting in a scraping noise....

and the faster you'll drive the more noise you'll get

so let's say you take a left turn you're gonna hear noise from the right wheel...

Breaking at slow speed there is a bad bearing o scrunching noise.


This is a hub issues. the bearings are dry and i would get this looked at before they get to dry. i would also check the entire axle assembly as well. just too be safe. i suspect the bearings will need to be replaced. (repacked)
