Is the noise coming from the front or rear brakes ?

Feels like its coming from the front passenger side but iv taken all wheels and brakes off and had them checked and they seem fine no cracks or tares. I dont know if its the reticular disc that sits behind the abs hub you know that 29 cerated disc? Thanks for your response.


Sounds like the hub bearing is bad.

Is it an easy fix?


If have some mechanical experience yes if not I would leave it to a professional.

Thanks pal appreciate your help :)
