The brake calipers would not cause noise. Check the wheel bearings.

What causes rear wheel noise


  1. Tire issues;
  2. Contaminated differential oil or low oil level in the differential;
  3. Bad rear bearings;
  4. Brake issues (worn pads, caliper dragging, parking brake not releasing;
  5. Microscopic crack in the wheel (if the "noise" you are describing is a clicking sound).

Discussion

Replacing the rear wheel bearings on these vans is relatively simple pretty simple. However, the first thing that you must do is satisfy your self that it's the bearing and not something rubbing on a tire or something else back there in the rear.

Follow this steps to diagnose the problem:
  1. Jack up the rear of the car
  2. shake the wheel side to side and top to bottom.
  3. if there is any wobble in it then it is a wheel bearing.
  4. However, you cant alway tell by the shake test.
  5. You can also go down the road and swerve side to side (being careful of oncoming traffic).
  6. Iif you swerve to the right and the noise is loudest on the left side.
  7. If you swerve to the left and its louder its on the right side.

Just replaced the rear brake rotors and pads. I now have a clunking noise coming from both rear wheels when breaking at low speed


You should take the wheels off and check the caliper bolts to make certain they are tight-also, the anti rattle clips may not be installed properly, check them visually-rotate the disks and watch the caliper to see if there is any movement. Probably something basic, but you need to inspect it as it could become damaging or, worse, dangerous.

The wheel locked up when i was driving i smelled something burning


Was this a front or rear wheel? Did it make any unusual noise prior to the problem? If front, you could have a brake caliper that is sticking which would cause the brake to stay "on" and overheat the brakes or you could have a wheel bearing that has failed and is locked up but they usually make some noise before they fail. If rear, then usually it is brake related...again a caliper or wheel cylinder could be the culprit. It's not often that a rear bearing fails but that is possible.
If you have a brake caliper that has gone bad then I would suggest replacment of both calipers, brake pads, and flushing out the old brake fluid so you'll have good calipers and clean fluid when you are done.

Rear brake noise after brake replacement


probably a dumb question, but if there is a backing plate, did you make sure it isnt bent and hitting the rotor? you never want to sand new rotors, although i dont think it would cause this concern. i would suggest lightly scuffing up the brake pads. this will eliminate any noise caused by the contact of the rotors and pads. if it goes away then you know its a problem with the pads/rotors.

scoring of only the inside rotors would make me think that possibly the caliper slides are frozen up. make sure they move quite freely on the slides. it is not uncommon for brake pads to score rotors though.

but brake noises at low speeds that dont' change when applying light brake pressure are usually some sort of metal or something contacting the rotor.

2007 Dodge Magnum, RT/AWD - Front Driver side wheel area noise, like snow/ice was caught up under, checked notheing. One month later the noise came back but with a vengence. Now makes the noise at all...


Check the Brakes first. Are the pads worn down to metal. Is the Caliper Stuck (open)?
Raise and Support the Front and Rear (because of AWD) of the vehicle.
Remove the left front tire. Make sure the Parking Brake is engaged. Place the lug nuts back on the lug studs. Place the Vehicle in Neutral. Turn the wheel (without the tire on) and listen for where the noise is coming from. A bad bearing will feel rough (not smooth) and sound 'crackly' when trying to turn the one wheel. Make sure it is not from the CVJ.
If not smooth: Remove and Replace the wheel bearing. And yes you can do it yourself saving you about $150-$200 dollars. It is a bolt-on (4 bolts) bearing. Bolt Heads should be on the back side of the steering knuckle.
Remove the Brake Caliper, Caliper Brace, and Rotor.
Remove the 4-bolts (turn the wheels left and right to better access these bolt heads) and slip the bearing off the Axle. You may have to hit the bearing to loosen it.

Noisy rear wheel


Your wheels are probably rubbing against your brake caliper, or the dust shield.

ABS is locked up on rear brakes


Check your brake line going into the caliper and the caliper on the wheel that makes the noise. It's probably a caliper or brake hose. Hope this helps. PHil
