Noise in left rear of 2000 Toyota Rav4 AWD. Does not appear to be brake related

Posted by on

  • Anonymous Sep 29, 2008

    Scraping noise in rear of 2000 Rav4. Seems to be the left side.The garage removed the rear drums & checked the shoes and drums, cleaned up and replaced. Ran the vehicle on the ramp, spinning the left rear wheel. No noise.
    Drove the vehicle on the road and the scraping noise comes and goes. I thought it might have been related to the parking brake because it now appears as the parking brake does not hold the vehicle. I left the parking brake off for two days, drove the vehicle for approx. 35 kms. before the scraping began again intermittently. Very puzzling!!!!

Rear driver wheel has light reubbing noise when car in motion goes away when brakes are engaged. Is this brakes or barrings problem? Cost of repair?

hi this sounds like your brake pads have worn, or the brake shoes as well, if you have drum brakes on the back it will be shoes, if disk brakes will be pads+shoes (inside the disk) if it was the wheel bearing you would hear a loud humming noise not rubbing noise, is it a metallic rubbing noise or a rubber squeaking rubbing noise? just check condition of tyre on back if it is the squeaking rubber noise cost will depend on where you take it and if you do it yourself, possibly $40 to $50 at a garage/auto shop or possibly $20 to $30 if you do it yourself, this just depends ...hope this helps

My toyota 2001 rav 4 makes rubbing sound only when i step on the brakes, thought it was the front brake early indicator, so changed front brakes..they needed it! But still makes the noise..sounds like it's...

Yes, this will be the rear brakes. Most of these are the same design as the front and are as easy to replace. You should always change all the front and back brakes at the same time, as it will affect braking and handling.

Change rear brakes and your problem will be resolved.

2000 Toyota Rav4

I had the same problem. The screw hole in the drum used to assist in removing it was stripped. I found that hitting the brake drum near the outside edge a big hammer (sledge) worked. It took about five good wacks.

Scraping noise in rear of 2000 Toyota Rav4 AWD

just wanted to stop to offer some tips. I just put in new brakes on last night. I too had the same problem. The brakes were fine, but I replaced them anyway. The drum seem fine, and my emergency cable was a bit loose too. What you can try is hiting the ebrake while going in reverse or in drive. It may help. If not, adjust the ebrake cable will be needed, it not too hard to do. It should be by the rear tires towards the center.
