Jack the rear of the vehicle up, spin the wheel by hand, and put your free hand on the strut spring, if a bearing is bad , the roughness should travel through the suspension and you can feel it most amplified in the spring.

On the basis you need to ask what the noise could be, get a knowledgeable friend to help you or get to a garage/mechanic ASAP. Do not drive any further than neccessary and at a low speed and if possible don't move it at all until the noise is determined. It may only be a worn out brake pad/shoe or it is the collapse of the wheel bearing. Both of which are a potential danger.

Most likely your rear brake shoes are worn down far beyond the min limits and you now have metal to metal contact, which causes the grinding noise, overheating and poor braking. You most likely will need to replace the drums. The other rear wheel will probably be the same.

Loud brake noise in 97 buick lesabre


When you had the drums off, did you inspect the shoes for excessive wear? And How do the drums look? Are they grooved? Can you be more specific about the loud noise. Does it sound like a grinding noise, or a screeching or pulsating noise. Is it lower pitch or high pitch?

What is the grinding noise on my 2003 Grand am front wheels, help please?


There are many things the grinding noise can be. I would start with the breaks though as that sounds like the most likely culprit. If they are grinding, odds are you have ruined your rotors and/or drums. This means that you are looking at about $50-$70 in new parts per wheel (Total of $200 to $280) to replace, assumming only the pads and rotors/drums needs to be replaced.

Please note that breaks can be a good DIY project, but this takes an intermediate skill level with some expereince. Some vehicles are easier than others. Drum style breaks can be especially tricky as they relie on a system of springs that can be challenging to work with. There is also a hydrulic system that can have issues. If you see break fluid when you take off the wheels and drums, you have much larger issues and I would recommend getting in touch with someone more qualified.

Grind steel on steel noise rear passanger side when coming to a stop do you know what the problem is?


hi this sounds like your rear brakes are warn and the metal grinding noise you can hear might be the metal part of the pads rubbing on the disks, either that or your break shoes are doing the same if they are the drum type rear brakes, hope that helps

Drum brakes causing intermittent grinding noise


Sounds like one of the springs that hold the rear brakes in place broke. Jack her up, pop off the tire, remove the drum and take a look. If you need to see what a good one looks like, look on the other side.

This is not a very common problem, but I saw it last year on a 69 chevelle.

Good Luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Loud Grinding noise while driving in rear of vehicle


The bearings should be inside the drum assembly.The brakes do not have to come off. The bearings may have to be pressed out if they are sealed type bearings.

Right rear wheel has rubbing and grinding noises, as on cast iron


My advise is to adjust the rear brakes. The drum should not move in a side to side fashion. adjusting the brakes will also more than likely take care of that anti lock brake light also. adjust the brakes up to where the rear wheel will spin but you should be able to hear the brake show dragging slightly on the drum.
