Sounds as if your brake pads have worn down to the "screechers" These are small
metal clips attached to brake pads that scrape the rotors to alert the driver that
it is time to have the brakes serviced.
Hope this helps.

My 2004 kia optima driver side front make a roaring noise while its rolling


Sounds like you have a wheel bearing problem. Jack up the front end so wheels are off the ground. put your hand on the spring on the strut then turn the wheel with the other hand. If the bearing is bad you will feel the vibration/rough spot in the spring. Noise will get louder or diminish when you peed up or slow down.

2005 Ford Explorer is making a grinding noise


I had some issues with my 2005 explorer left rear. It was making a creepy old door sound at low speeds and then a high pitched whisel at high speeds. That turned out to be a broken wheel bearing and had it replaced. Note each wheel has two wheel bearings. After that a new noise developed that sounded like metal scraping/ grinding metal. It end up being the brake dust cover got bent when they replaced the bearing and it was rubbing something, the fix for that was bending it so it didn't rub. I hope this helps.

Rubbing noise from the back


if the noise is while you are driving i would suggest rear wheel bearing, jack up both sides of the car at the rear and spin the wheels, the side where the noise is comming from will not spin as free as the good side. hope this has been helpfull

Sounds like the bearings are going out in the rear hub(s). Drive the car for a few miles (if it is safe to to do). Park it and check to see if the wheels are warm, or even hot, in their center cap area. This will indicate excess friction from bad bearings. Replace the whole hub. It's an easy DIY job, if you are so inclined. Part cost should be just over $100. per axle. Shop around to find a good price. I recommend Timken hubs. best of luck.
