Odd grabbing in front wheel

Asked by Jul 12, 2018 at 09:22 AM about the 2009 Ford Escape

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The other week I had this odd grabbing/flapping sensation in my left front
wheel when I braked, it happened twice in a few minutes, so I had the car
towed home.  The mechanic checked it out but found nothing wrong and of
course when he drove it nothing happened.  It has happened twice since and
not as bad.  Also a few days before it happened my left wheel felt thick and
stiff when I turned back from a left hand turn and it still does a bit.  Now it
seems that my battery isnt being charged properly, I know these cars charge
from the brakes being applied.  It does break fine.
