08 4runner having some rattle and noise from left wheel weel

Have 2008 4x4 sr5 stock. 190K miles. Taken in to local mechanic in august for maintenance. Lubed up joints, put new rotors and pads on front, rotated tires, flushed transmission and differential, replaced front right weal bearing, and replaced gas cap

The VSC, check engine, tire pressure, and traction control lights were all on at the time. Car was driving great, no issues.

Mechanic tells me they changed gas cap and did all the above and lights checked off.


Get it back and can hear a squealing noise from driver side now. Loud popping noise while driving slowly, and feels like brake catches as car slows down and drifts left... and lights back on so take it back to mechanic, they say its fine and can't replicate noise. They "checked" the abs and brakes etc and burped the ABS.

Couple weeks later and the noise has migrated from a tumbling noise when the wheel is turned slightly to right to now a squeal and grind..

Would like to take back to mechanic or actually find someone else but would also like a general idea of what to inspect or ask them to look at.

Below is a link to videos where i tried demonstrating some noise.

appreciate it. FWIW, I love this car and don't drive it a ton due to walking to work. I would have taken it back to the mechanic sooner but for being very busy with work.

Have you checked your brake backing plates? They rust/rot away and can make contact with the rotor and make scraping noises.

"The VSC, check engine, tire pressure, and traction control lights were all on at the time. Car was driving great, no issues." mine has been on as well. as well as a persistent low tire pressure light. keep us updated if the lights come back. why would a gas cap throw this set of lights on?

Good question... I'm really concerned about this squealing and whining and vibration as it's gotten worse. It's from the left front side.
