I noticed a burning smell coming from my front driver side wheel. It almost smelt like burning rubber. What could this be?
After driving a short distance (4-5 miles) I noticed when pulling into my garage that there
was a burning smell coming from my front driver side wheel. The rim and area around the
tire was extremely warm.
Inspect brakes. Also inspect front wheel bearings. You should be able to identify which one of these items is the issue.
Your left front caliper has stuck.You will need a caliper and brake pads. I advise replacing the other front caliper too.When one sticks usually the other side will start doing it too.
i also have same problem but i have changed my brake pad, caliper and rotors but still rubber burning smell coming our with white smoke and i couldn't find where its coming from but between top curve of front wheel its coming and now i have car shaking - vibrating when i stop at signals and engine light just shows ON. when i put car in neutral its not shaking but when i put it on D start vibrating specially when i stop on signals while driving no vibrations..
Guru96NHL did you figure it out. I think I had the same problem last year and the brake line hose was kinked up and clogged.
