2016 SRT left wheel making rubbing or bringing sound when turning right

Hi All

This is my first time on this forum, so hi to all. I have now purchase my second Jeep Grand Cherokee, the first on a 2014 Overland 5,7, which was a fantastic car, however the need for speed, I traded it and have now purchased a new SRT. BUT, right out the box it has an unusual issue, when turning right it sounds like its rubbing or grinding under acceleration. I also had a good look under the wheel arch for rubbing, but there was nothing. I then fitted a gopro under the car, but could not see anything other then the brakes spitting a flame under braking, which was not hard braking and in the wet, which was a surprise as well. As it is the holidays I can't take to the dealer for another 3 days. any thought??

Hi the dealer seems to have found the problem, and will be collecting my car tomorrow. They advised me that it was the exhaust heat shield rubbing up on the front side shaft, sounds plausible, when you think under load and through a corner the car would have some lean. Once I have taken it through the cannons over the weekend I will let you know

He wants to see the video of your brakes spitting out flames.

By your own admission, you have GoPro documentation of your car's left front brake "spitting a flame under braking...in the wet" [my emphasis].

That your 2016 Jeep SRT was throwing flames from one of its front brakes, not you use of a GoPro, is what's questionable.

Enjoy she is a monster.. Anyway its fixed no more grinding. The dealer found out that the exhaust heat shield above the left front side shaft was rubbing under load when turning left.. I am very happy they found the issue

I understand: the "flame" that you associated with your left brake assembly and, initially, with your SRT's left wheel was, according to your dealer, caused by a heat shield rubbing a "side shaft"--by two parts grinding and creating sparks.

A brake assembly which threw flames would be a substantial safety concern.

Hi, I am not concerned with the flames, they are created by friction, from the metal compounds in the break-pad and the steel break disk. Hauling 2.5 ton down from a 100kp/h to zero fast, creates high levels of friction and heat . If you watch motor sport you will see red disks under high breaking, as well as sparks like in the video. If they continues to flame after the friction point i.e stationary that would have concerned me, as then the break pads would have overheated and the ventilated disks would not be doing there job properly, which would be a big issue for a track day..

PS as you can see no BS

Cheers
