CHEVY

2005 Chevrolet Equinox

Brakes problem
2005 Chevy Equinox 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 50000 miles

HI TIM AGAIN. YOU SAID I SHOULDN'T HONE THE CAVITY? AS I SAID, THEY MAY BE STICKING, BUT I'M NOT SURE. BUT I'LL GO WITH WHAT SUGGEST. COULD IT BE POSSIBLE THAT ONE OF THE HUB BEARINGS IS BAD. SHE'S HEARING A VERY LIGHT SQUEAKY, GRINDING NOISE ON THE FRONT LEFT. I DROVE IT AND APPLIED THE BRAKES LIGHTLY AND I CAN HEAR IT. BUT I CAN ALSO HEAR IT WITHOUT THE BRAKES BEING APPLIED. AND IT'S HEARD WHEN DRIVING IN A LEFT CIRCLE OR EVEN STRAIGHT. BUT THE SOUND ISN'T CONSTANT. ONLY HEAR IT AT ONE SPOT ON THE WHEEL AS IT'S TURNING. ARE THE SHIMS OR INDICATORS DIFFICULT TO PUT BACK SHOULD ONE FALL OFF AND I'M NOT SURE WHERE IT GOES. THANKS AGAIN
