    Default 3.2DiD grinding/squeeking front wheel

    Hi All,

    My uncle's 3.2DiD Pajero has grinding/squeeking front wheel. The noise goes away as soon as he applies the brakes.

    This leads me to think brake pads/vibration plates/loose caliper?

    Please let me know if it could be anything else because I will be taking the wheel off this afternoon and am clueless

    Thanks again!

    check the front right inner CV cup (usually green in colour) for play. It may be the dreaded inner shaft bearing.

    or it could be that one of the clips on the brake pad is making contact with the brake disk.

    i had the same issues. the clip broke and made enough contact with the disk to grind a 2mm gash in the front disk.
    Its only funny until someone gets hurt.
