Is the wheel rubbing the brake caliper?

Is something like the wheel well liner rubbing the tire(airflow pushing it into tire)?

Jack the tire off the ground and rotate it by hand. Push in & out at the top, sides, and bottom of the tire. Little or no play is considered acceptable. If you get a "clunking" sound and/or a lot of play the bearing(s) are bad. (If front wheel drive, chock rear tires, put transmission in neutral so you can rotate tire.)

Hope this helps.

I went and got new tires they told me I needed a link pin replaced on the front passenger wheel. It is now grinding when I make a hard right turn. I do not see a part named that do you know what that would...


Did they replace the "link" pin? In the front...the only thing that is a "link" are the swaybar end links, would not be in the way of the tires though. But these need to be replaced as a whole, cannot replace just the pins. Are the tires rubbing or is it a metal to metal sound? If the tires are oversized, could be rubbing against the upper ball joint. If it's metal to metal, it could be many things. If they replaced the end link, make sure they put the correct one on, the right is for the right, the left is for the left, if switched, it will bend and rub agains the gusset right there.....been there, made that mistake.

I have a 2002 Ford Explorer XLT that has started to make a bad noise when the stairing wheel is turned and when backing up , it feels if the parking brake is on, took it to the dealer they had for a day...


sounds like tire rub issue, as inflating tire solved the issue for a short while possibly that the tires placed on vehicle maybe incorrect size width/height, check tire size, look in wheel well for areas of possible rubbing.

I didnt know better and i ran a larger pair of tires on the front of my 2006 gmc envoy. when i tried to put the transfer case in auto the car started making a knocking sound. i turned it back to off right...


Did the car drive fine in 2wd? Sounds like you have a different problem with the transfercase. You can run bigger tires as long as they don't rub on the ball joints which may require grinding to make work. Trailblazer/ Envoy owners have put up to 35" tires on there with the same transfer case. Of course with suspension modification, but with the same transfercase and hubs.

Noise when turning the wheel fully to the left or right.sounds like grinding.


check the inside of the wheel to see if it rubs on tie-rod ends and the tires for wear and tear. also verify what size of tires are recommended, too big the tires will rub on the inside of the fender

AC/Heat Fan runs continuously and Rear end roaring noise


Sounds like the wheel bearing on the right rear hub may be defective, that would cause the noise if the tires are ok. As far as the fan goes not sure this isn't working as designed.

2000 Ford Explorer AWD purchased with different size tires


It is true that driving with different size tires can damage the transfer case, depending on how long it was driven like that. But--- even if the tires are the same size it can cause this. if the tires are worn and two tires are new the circumference of the tires must not be more than 1/2 inch difference from each other, take a tape measure and put it around the tire in the center and measure the difference of each tire

RUBBING NOISE


check to see if the rear tires are making contact with the rear struts or springs, sometimes if you tow a heavy load with these cars it bends the spring perchs down and they rub on the inside tread of the tire, also be sure you have the right tire size on the car please rate -jeff
