Question about 1992 Volvo 240

Tapping sound when brakes are applied

1992 Volvo 240 wagon. Snows on spare rims were just put on rear and rear all season tires were rotated up to the front. Now get a tapping sound from front end when brakes are applied. Sounds like its coming from left front. Only feel the slightest vibration through the steering wheel but only when the brakes are applied and only when braking at medium to higher speeds, not if braking when moving below 10 mph. Car does not pull when brakes are applied and there is no heat build up after driving for a while nor scraping sound as if the caliper was stuck. Checked the tires that were rotated up front and it does not appear that any of the lead balancing weights are missing. What to do. Car is supposed to travel 550 miles in the morning but am hesitant to let it go. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

1992 volvo brakes rear brakes started smoking. There was also a burning smell? Any ideas?


rear disc can be activated by bad fluid heating up. If there is moisture in the brake fluid it can make steam and cause the rear brakes to partially engage. did this one myself at the brake shop.

I put my spare tire on the left front of my MPG, when I drove it it made all kinds of noise, I moved the spare to the rear and all the noise went away, so you know what may have caused the noise, also when...


sounds like the spare is not the correct one for the car and was rubbing on the front brake caliper, wrong rim. on rear brakes it probably is drum brakes and that in not affected by the wrong rim.

I have a 1993 Volvo I purchased new almost 17


Could be tire noise, could be rear wheel bearing, differential (if rear wheel driven), or could be something associated with the brake.

Try swapping the tire with another tire. If the noise moves with the tire, it's the tire. If it stays, it's brakes (unlikely for the noise you mention), rear wheel bearing, or rear differential (lack of oil). Will probably need to have a mechanic to identify and repair.
