The greater chance is that you are hearing the beginning of a wheel bearing issue on that side.

SOURCE: rummbling noise at rear wheels

did you change the rims and tires to bigger size or is it stock wheels. I believed your car is all wheel drive, check the rear end transfer case, brakes pad rubbing against rotor, due to sticking caliper. inner tire wall rubbing against shock absorber, bent rim or the wheel bearing going out.

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.

How to remove and replace rear wheel bearings.

Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section of your User Manual.

Remove or disconnect the following:
  1. Rear wheel
  2. Brake drum or caliper
  3. Wheel speed sensor, if equipped
  4. Hub and bearing assembly from the rear axle

To install:

Install or connect the following:

  1. Hub and bearing assembly. Tighten the bolts to 95 ft. lbs. (129 Nm).
  2. Wheel speed sensor, if equipped. Tighten the bolt to 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm).
  3. Brake drum or caliper
  4. Rear wheel

SOURCE: 1999 Lexus RX300 left rear wheel has a rumbling noise sounds like cv joint or bearing its all wheel drive.

Spin that wheel by hand as fast as you can. If you can hear the noise coming from right behind the tire it's probably a wheel bearing.

FORD FOCUS IS MAKING A RUMBLING SOUND WHEN DRIVING ONLY,


Sounds like either a bad tire or wheel bearing. Check you tires for rough spots or high/low spots and replace if belts are broken. This is a raised area on the tire that will run diagonally across your tire. If tires look OK try moving the front tonthe back and see if the noise moves. To check for a front wheel bearing drive about 50 kms per hour and slowly turn the wheels left and right. If the noise gets worse or louder you need a bearing. For the back younhave to raise the rear and pin the wheels by hand and listen for a roar.

How to identify source of rumbling noise when car is moving.


My daughter has a 2001 Focus with similar sound, problem.  Just drove it from Portland Oregon to Newport Oregon approx. 140 miles.  Hwy. 20 the route from I-5 to the coast has some pretty sharp corners.  There was this knot head behind me tailgating.  So,coming into the sharp corners I decided to accelerate hard through the corners to gain some distance away from the guy.  Well guess what?  45-50 mph into a 25 mph right hand corner and the noise totally stopped for a few seconds.  I did this again and the same thing...no noise! So, on the next left hand corner I powered into it. The noise increased.  I had the back seats down as well, carting a surf board, which allowed the noise level to be established that it was from the rear of the car.  With the seats up it was impossible to tell where the noise was coming from; But down clearly from the rear.  Now, going through those sharp corners, the right hand corner throws weight to the left front wheel and the right rear tire tends to lift releasing weight pressure on the bearing resulting in the no noise event.  Thus I am absolutely convinced that it is a bearing failure in the passenger side rear wheel. Quit by accident to have stumbled onto this today...amazing!  Now, Looking for directions on how to replace the bearing which is how I stumbled onto this post.  Have a good one!!!

2001 and 2002 jeep grand cherokee. while making hard left hand turn experience rumbling sound doesnt happen when driving straight or right turns. Cant decide if sound is from front or rear area


Try checking the bearing in the left wheel if the rumbling is on the left side. Sometimes bearings can be worn down and sometimes may even twist or bend.

Sounds to me like a wheel bearing is going out, get the wheel checked out by a mechanic, and see if that is the problem, but it sounds to me like a bearing issue.

If it sort of whines then a wheel bearing is shot

Question :
If you go around a corner the noise should get less? as there is more lateral strain on the bearings



A very loud rumble would be a drive shaft problem

Growling noise


That sounds like a wheel bearing starting to go bad. Usually you'll get a rumbling sound that will increase in volume and sometimes pitch as the speed increases. A quick way to check for wheel bearing wear is to first determine if you hear it at the front or the rear. Once you know that (or at least have an idea which end it's at), see if the noise gets louder or quieter when you turn. If you make a right turn and the noise gets louder, the problem is on the left side of the vehicle, because you're loading the suspension on that side. If you then turn left at speed and the noise goes away or quiets down, you reinforce the fact that it's on the left side because you're unloading the suspension on that side.

When you've determined as best you can which side and which end of the vehicle the noise is on, you'll know which wheel to check. Jack up that corner of the vehicle, and grab the tire at the top and bottom. See if you can get it to move at all by shaking it. A good wheel bearing will allow no play whatsoever. If the bearing is going bad, you may see that you can "shake" the wheel while it's mounted on the hub.

If you have a hard time determining which wheel it is, jack up each corner and shake each wheel in turn and see if any of them shake while mounted on the truck. If you find one that does, you're most likely looking at replacing a wheel bearing.

Try this out and post up what you find, and we can take it from there.
