Scraping noise in rear of 2000 Toyota Rav4 AWD

Scraping noise in rear. Seems to be left side. The garage removed the rear drums & checked the shoes and drums, cleaned up and replaced. Drums and shoes okay. 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 and parked the vehicle for two days. Day 3 I drove the vehicle for approx 35 kms before the scraping began again, intermittently. Very puzzling!! Please HELP!!!!

    I also have a scraping noise in the rear of my 98, and it is sometimes accompanied by a clacking sound - both come and go under braking conditions. Drums and shoes look good.

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.

XL7 has a clicking scraping noise on drivers side in reverse only. Have checked brakes and they look ok. When I put on jacks with the hub off and turn by hand I can still hear the clicking grinding


Where is the noise? Front or back? At the brake or differential? Usually grinding and clicking is the rear brake drums. Brake shoes/hardware. Year, make, and model?

Rear brakes make a scraping noise they are drums and shoes do they need replacing? been to a garage and they said there ok.


I will assume that your brakes and drums are good, (might want to inspect to make sure the shop just didn't want to do the job) Sounds to me like you might have a bent backing plate or bad wheel bearing.

Its possible they don't like working on drum brakes, if my car made that sound, I would have my brakes replaced without any inspection. Slight chance of a bad wheel bearing, but they usually make a growling sound kinda like the roar of a biplane. Guess its possible your backing plate for the brakes could be bent, rubbing the drum.

Rear Brake on passenger side makes a noise like a high speed rub


Thanks for the inquiry.
This sounds like the either the tattle-tail is giving you a signal the the brakes are worn and need to be replaced before they wear the drum/rotors. Depending on the extent of the sound it may also mean the shoes/pads are worn down far enough you have metal on metal scraping the rotors/drums making this noise when you apply the brake. In either case it's time to re-build your rear brakes.
Kind regards,
TF

Just replaced rear brake shoes--parking brake feels like it is not tight enough when engagaed--


The brake shoes need adjusting. Disengage the parking brake.
Before fitting new shoes you should slack off the parking brake cable completely. Locate the adjuster(just follow the parking brake cable. Undo the locknut and slack off the cable.
Remove the rear wheels and drums again. You will find a screw-in type adjuster between the shoes. Turn the adjuster to increase the distance between the shoes. The left and right wheel's adjusters turn in opposite directions to achieve the same result. Fit the drum to see if it slides over the pads easily. Do so until you start having diffyculty sliding the drum over the shoes. Fit the drum and rotate it. You should not hear any scraping or have any resistance on the drum when it is rotated. Refit the wheels. Test the parking brake. If it is still too slack adjust the cable under the car until you when you engage the parking brake it engages fully after 3-5 clicks.

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
