    I have a 2005 sienna LXE Limited AWD. whenever i'm slowing down there is a grinding sound that is definitely rotational. I have checked the brake pads and there is plenty pad left, almost new. I thought maybe the rotor was warped but there is no pulsation on the brake peddle. I cannot see anywhere it looks like something is rubbing. This only happens when moving forward, I've tried it in reverse and there is no grinding noise. It sounds to be coming from the right front. Could it be a warped rotor, a bad wheel bearing or maybe the rear drive shaft u-joint? Anyone have any ideas?

    The first thing I check is the metal dust shield on the back side of the rotor. It is very easy to bend them when rotating tires etc, and the shield will rub on the rotor. This can be mistaken for worn pads or other problems.
