Squeeking noise from pasenger side rear door

I have a problem with my rear tire on the passenger side. When I go slow it seems that it is making a noise similar to 2 pieces of styrofoam rubbing together. When I speed up the noise dissapears, or maybe i just cant hear it anymore lol. Can anyone help me? Thanx.

Check your hub spindle(wheel bearings), I had to replace both mine at 70,000 miles, started making this roaring sound and we thought it was the tires. There is no way to grease the bearings, it's a complete sealed part that just wears out, easy to replace.

Rear tire noise


How many miles on your 328? My son's car was making a grinding noise and our independent mechanic told me it was the rear differential. I assumed he was correct and bought a replacement. However, before I installed it, I noticed the outer 3/4" of his passenger side rear rotor was discolored and no longer shiny. His brake caliper was grinding the rotor! It was because the hub bearing was so badly worn. I replaced the bearing and all is well.

200SX SE Nissan 1996, making weird noise on passenger side


a little tip for you...it sounds like the pads are squealing, try taking the pads out and applying a very thin film of high temperature grease on the rear of the pads (NOT TO THE FRICTION SIDE), this may seem a bit of an odd thing to do, this tip was passed down to me by an old mechanic friend of mine years ago,and it works every time for me.
