Customer Question

I have 2009 camry 4 cyl. Car is making wierd rubbing, low pitch noise up front . Usually in the morning when cold after I back out and turn wheel left. Later in day I can't notice. Took to first shop few weeks ago and said couldn't find but looked safe to drive. Took to 2nd shop but left overnight so they could hear noise in morning. The said cv shaft with alignment. I paid $650 but noticed sound next morning. I did have my power steering flushed 3 months ago not sure if relevant.

Thank you. I would get the car in the air and check the brakes and the bearings. You may be hearing an inner brake pad that is failing. If the brakes are fine then a hub bearing that is also failing will cause this.
