My other half and I were on a drive Friday night and we could feel the car start to steer itself and felt a wobbling sensation with a grinding noise soon after that.

My other half pulled over and checked the passenger side tire and it was completely loose. We unfortunately had to drive the rest of the way home because we couldn't afford a tow.

When we got home we saw one of my calipers was bad and the brakes were shot. When he looked at the wheel bearings they were bad too. It was all on the passenger side where the grinding is located now.

Calipers, brakes and wheel bearings were all replaced (both sides) and the grinding noise is even more horrifying than before they were changed.

What could be the cause?

  • Welcome to the site @user41741, some background would help. When did you first start having problems, is the sound coming from one wheel, and why were so many parts replaced? – GdD Sep 20 '18 at 14:05

  • Now after everything was changed the grinding on the passenger side is absolutely unbearable. – user41741 Sep 20 '18 at 14:19
