Wanna speculate what's going on with my car?
>had bearing replaced in July
>grinding sound begins a month later, when cornering
>decide to wait until it gets worse to take action
>grinding begins to show whether cornering or going straight this week
>take it back to the shop
>they're noticing the symptoms when test driving
>cannot repeat the symptoms on the lift
They have no idea what's going on.
Well, I'm sure I could do the job.
Let's just say I'm too lazy to take an entire steering knuckle and hub off to get to the rotors to get to the wheel bearing.
I also lack certain equipment.
>I also lack certain equipment.
sure does sound like you do shirley.
So you have replaced the wheel bearing. I'm assuming you know which wheel/suspension the sound is coming from? If so have you swapped wheels? have your removed brake dust shield.
Does the grinding depend on their being power going to the wheel or not.
Ah, nevermid, your pads look good. I saw once on jay Leno's garage a car that made a grinding noise, and it was his coilover springs rubbing the body of the car. The fix being using skinnier springs.
The OP is an old pic.
Here a recent one from servicing the control arm last week.
I had a focus where the rear bearings kept going like every 7000 miles.
It was cheaper to replace them than get the alignment done.
The bearing was in the drum brake, and they were dirt cheap off ebay.
