You have good instincts. The car probably has a wheel bearing or CV joint going bad. Get it checked out before one of the wheels comes off while driving!

Brakes usually have a warning indicator when your brakes get thin, after checking your brakes, I would then check your bearings.
Hope I was of some help to you!

Why do I hear grinding noises while driving?


Hit in the rear axle may have damaged bearings or brake parts. Jack up the side you hear noise from, put on stand, then have helper rotate wheel while you look underneath and listen to see where noise is coming from. Use length of old fuel or heater hose, one end in ear, to locate exactly where noise comes from.

I hear a grinding noise from the front drivers side wheel after I let off the brake on my 2001 vw jetta. Could this be a bad bearing or cv half axle?


Pull the wheel off and inspect the brake pads and also rotate the hub. If a grinding noise is heard loadly the pads are worn. If the noise is low and internal it will be the wheel bearing. The CV joint makes clicking noises upon turning corners while driving if worn

Loud grinding in front driverside brake when applied, the pads are only half worn and I can't feel any significant grooves in the roter


do u only hear the noise when braking? those vans r prone to wheel bearing failure. the noise will always be there and will get loude with speed. the other thing it could be is the backing plate behind the rotor. all u have to do is gently push/pull it away from the rotor.generally if the wheel bearing has failed and the van has ABS the abs warning lamp will come on from time to time the eventually stay lit permently.

no recalls that I know of, but you can always call the dealer, give them the VIN number and they can tell you of any outstanding recalls.. if you have thep ads off in your hand an spin the wheel and you hear grinding noises, then I would say the bearing is bad.

Have the front brakes checked alot of times the brake pads wear down to the point that the wear warning indicator starts to rub on the rotor or disc and makes a scraping sound when turning, your front brake pads are due to be replaced, I am 80% sure.
