Question about 2007 Chevy Tahoe 4WD Front Wheel Bearing & Hub Assembly

1 Answer

I hear a metal on metal noise coming from the driver's side front wheel that will come and go. I thought it was the disc brake retainer clips rubbing on the disc so I changed them out and put new

This is on a 2007 chevy tahoe 4wd and the grinding noise comes and goes when it hits a bump in the road.

Check front wheel bearings for failure and nut adjustment.. If they are loose or failed they will allow the disc to rub on the caliper housing

What's causing my 2001 hyundai accent to be noisy when moving on the driver side front wheel?

It could be the disc brake pads telling you they need to be replaced.

1998 Contour, clicking noise coming from front wheel on drivers side as I'm driving(it's a consistent click)

With out hearing the noise it is hard to say but it could be a wheel bearing but most of the time a bearing will hum, this could be a bad cv axle or a brake brake hitting the bracket, try to drive the car and hit the brake a little and see if the clicking goes away, if it does then i would say it is in the brakes. if it does not then have the cv axle checked.

Not sure what it is...but when I'm driving down

Maybe there is something stuck in the brake caliper. Maybe a caliper retaining bolt is loose. Best check it ASAP. If you can't do it yourself, hit up a Midas or some place.

We have a 2004 Kia Optima. There is rattling noise at the front driver side. The noise volume increases at higher speeds.

This could be one of several things. My first thought is your brake pads are loose. They are usually retained in place by clips, springs or friction fit. Applying the brakes usually makes the noise go away. It could also be the hub bearing or one of the c.v. joints. Turn your wheel hard to the left or right while applying slight acceleration. If you hear popping or snapping, You have a bad c.v. Also check for loose parts such as the dust shield or the inner fender well!

I replaced the brake pads on a 2008 Town & Country, but I still hear a slicing noise when I turn left from the front right wheel.

the only metal to metal noise that can be generated from the brake area is the retaining spring for the pads or the wheel bearing.jack up the wheel and try for play....

Grinding when I drive my 1999 malibu its coming from the front driver side

I need more information, but if it sounds like its coming from outside and the noise changes by depressing the brake pedal your front brakes are most likely worn down past the "screemer" and your hearing metal to metal.
It sure sounds the front wheels need to be removed for an inspection.

Screeching noise coming from driver side tire

The high pitch sound may come from the brake pads as metal parts hit the disc to signal the owner that it needs change. The metal parts gets exposed when the pads have worn out. The brake also has a hub to cover the disc. See if the metal plate is hitting it but this issue would appear when the wheels are in motion. Check if it is the belts, have the tension checked out. Other than that the bearings are the other items on your wheel that could cause a high pitched sound when you car is in motion.

My Chevrolet silverado ss abs light came on?

Take the wheel off and check the brake pads, they are probably worn down, and the metal backing on the disc brake pad is rubbing against the rotor.If that is the case, the rotor will need to be replaced, or turned down if it isn't too bad.

Front end squeaking possible rotor rubbing something.

Have you checked the metal clips that olds the brake pads in the front galiper bracket. They usualy rust, break loose and come in contact whit the disc, creating a squeaking noise. Those should be replace since they are needed for the brakes to work properly
