Weird spinning noise.

Hi guys, I've been having a weird spinning noise coming for my my front right wheel since I bought It i never really paid it any attention.

But just want to make sure my wheel is not going to fall out or something. What can this be I've been thinking it could be the wheel bearing. But I'm not to sure.

It only makes that noise when braking to a stop or just slowing down to a stop. Thanks!

It is not a brake related noise at all? My old Nissan did this and when I pulled the pads They were worn really unevenly and had to end up getting rotors and new pads

The car brakes fine. Although I've never gotten them checked. Would a worn rotor make that weird noise?

And it only comes from one wheel so I don't see how it can happen with just one and not both rotors simultaneously, assuming they were put on at the same time.

I had my left rotor fine and my right one was messed up. When you get some time just pull a pad out and look at it

Hand tools to remove rotor and pads?

Depends on your arm strength, rustiness of parts, and wrench handle length lol. I do it alright with just my ratchet and sockets. But once you get the wheel off, you will be able to see the rotor and pads clear enough to see if you need replacement parts. My bet is on worn brake pads and some rotors that need to be turned at the least.

For reals though, you can get a $30 1/2" drive impact from wal mart that will save precious hours of your life when combined with even just a little air compressor

My parents expy rotor was seized to all hell and took us forever. The pads will come off easy enough though and from there you will be able to tell the status of the rotor

Just going to put this out there...
If you replace the rotor go with an oem rotor and not a cheap Chinese rotor. Trust me on this...

Weird spinning noise.

Possibly, as you might know it's difficult to diagnose a problem over words on a screen. But rotors and pad check first then check them...
If they are Chinese rotors throw them away immediately. The metal compound in the rotor is incredibly weak, they warp very easily...

Yea I know. I was trying to upload a video maybe you guys know what the sound is but its letting me right now. As for rotors is it better to get them online or just nearby auto store.

Probably online. We only have AutoZone here and they didn't have oem stuff. Order from rock auto and track down the 6 percent code

If you cant afford a brand new rotor, just get the OEM one turned and that will last you until you can get one. Turning a worn out rotor that's high quality always works out better than replacing a worn out good rotor with a brand new cheap rotor.

Ok so for now it makes the noise when the cars i am driving mostly noticeable at low rpms. Few what it seems it has nothing to do with braking.

Drive the car about 25 to 30mph. Steer hard from left to right like NASCAR guys do to clear their tires of dibrees and warm them up before a restart. Does the noise happen? It could also be your front hub assembly. Jack the car up when your going to check your brakes and rotors. Grab your front wheels and might as well check the back to for any play try and rock the wheel and tire back and forth. Push on top and pull out on bottom and vise versa. If there is any play replace the hub assembly.

From visual, there is some bent metal in there. Behind the rotors

The dust cover behind my rotor was bent, and it made all kinds of crazy noise. Bent it out, fixed it

What the previous poster said... Its the brake dust cover for the rotor. Is yours touching/rubbing the rotor?

I'd love to see that dude. Someone like you? You sound like you have some serious personal issues man. Most of the time you just come on here and all you do is troll, sometimes it's funny but dude give a rest.

If you want to race, I already told you I'll rent a Prius and I'll give your tow truck a head start. Maybe just maybe your car can beat me like that.

I was joking with you but for one I don't come on here trolling. Secondly I help whoever I can out with their car troubles. I don't have personal issues but if that's What you think good for you. Lastly you would never beat me in a race. I should of never gave you guidance in your issue now that I look back on what you've said before but I did anyway. Go figure....

Weird spinning noise.

Ok so the noise isn't a bad wheel bearing.

It's a weird spinning noise and seems to be coming from the differential. Only happens when I let go of the gas an coming to a stop.

What are the symptoms for a differential going out?
