but will a loose wheel bearing also cause grinding noise at low speeds.
kinda sounds like my caliper is hitting my rims..(brings back memories)
but i jacked up the car and had a look and everything seems AOK
just dust from the pads is all i see.. no damage on anything.
i get a bit of wheel play when i shake the wheel.. but its the tiniest littles ammount.
Yes...a bad hub bearing can cause a grinding noise at low speeds. Mine did it between about 8-25 MPH....went away abouve 25 mph and did not make the noise during turns. I thought for sure it was a ball joint. Jacked up the car and put it on stands. Did the 6/12 and 9/3 test on each wheel. From underneath, you could see the slop/play in the hub when rocking the wheel (and yes, the play was very minor)
Repalced the hub and I was good to go. Not saying this is your problem, but it is definitely a possibility.
