2010 Chevrolet Traverse SOS
« on: December 15, 2017, 09:12:48 AM »
130k on the odometer for a new to me vehicle, we have had it al little over two months to replace the previously wrecked 2011 traverse.

It?s been a really sound vehicle thus far

Took it in for an alignment and tire rotation before our Christmas trip to San Francisco area, new struts on the front and sent on our way.

Took my kids to daycare early and hear a rubbing/grinding sound from the rear of the vehicle as I slowed to exit the freeway.  The back left wheel and rotor are very warm while the other three are cool to the touch.

Suggestions before I drop it at a mechanic again?

I had something like that on our suburban.
It was a sticking caliper.

New loaded brake caliper and rotor and we were GTG

Obviously when the caliper is removed, give the bearings a wiggle...

I guess if I jack the back half up and see if the tires roll,  all wheel drive vehicle so I will need all four off the ground and in Neutral? 

The growl gets worse as I apply brakes also

That same thing happened to my rust bucket red truck last year. New calipers and pads fixed it right up.

Put it up on a jack stand, neutral and the rear wheel does have a dragging on the brake,   I took it to the stealer anyway.  It?s cold and the lights in the garage need replaced and I just don?t want to do something not correct and have it become a issue on our drive to California

Same thing happened on my 2500 express, both front and rear on the left side we?re siezed up. Had to replace the calipers on both, but doin it myself (calipers, bolts, pads and rotors) was less than the shop wanted to just change out the pads.

There is a traverse forum that I found very helpful with my 09. http://www.traverseforum.com/ 

Like when I couldn't find the fuse box or the non existent fuel filter.

Dave, we're going to have to start calling you "Willow" tree - you through a lot of shade, and leave junk all over people's yards! LOL!  :beercheers:

Can't argue with what they all said. 

Well, if you get it figured out and come my way you better give a yell.
