Question about 2004 Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

Loud rear rubbing sound at speed.

Getting a loud rubbing sound from my left rear wheel at speeds over 50 MPH. I've had both front wheel bearings replaced on this car in the past, so I know what those sound like, and if rear bearings sound the same we can rule that out because this sounds completely different. It's like something rhythmically rubbing - the frequency and noise level increase with speed, and coasting doesn't affect it. Slight turning, in either direction, doesn't seem to affect it either. The sound is virtually nonexistent below 50 MPH. Thanks in advance.

It sounds like your rear brgs are "tracking". This means that the outer casing of the brgs are turning a bit at regular intervals in the housing. It does not happen when coasting, only under load. Col

Wheel bearing? If you turn left and it gets louder. It is the right wheel bearing. And vice versa.

Clicking noise turning right


Could be a tire hitting the inner fender skirting. Check both front tires to see if they are clean/scraped right at the tread and side. This is a good indication that the tire is rubbing something. Also, since your turning right, you put more weight of the vehicle on the left side. You might want to check the front and rear wheel bearings on the left. I've heard them click before, but only under pressure.

Tps on nissan quest makes loud noise when accelerates


As I look at your letter, which is very good, I might add, here are the few things that occurred to me.
The "loud squealing" should be a belt.
You have one or several belts, and if they get loose, or are worn out ( that includes the belt rubber getting old and hard) they will squeal like that.
However, the squealing also may be coming from one of the pulleys the drive belt or belts are attempting to turn.
If you have a bad bearing in one of the pulleys, you can get that loud sound like " a train".
If you are really careful, a "mechanic's stethoscope" might help you.
That is to take a really long screwdriver, and put the tip on each of the pumps or base of each pulley, and the handle end to your ear, and you can hear the bad bearing "scream" with the engine running.
Be blessed.

Front Wheel Bearing Hub

You will have to remove the brake calipers,hang it,&
remove the rotor,then you can turn the hub & feel the
roughness.

ROCK AUTO.com for parts & look at that hub, so you
match it up the same. Don't get in love with one brand
you like, if the hub looks different at the back where the
speed sensor goes in

You also may find your self buying a torx socket or metric
socket driver to get the speed sensor out. Maybe not

If tools are needed,do yourself a favor & step inside a Snap-On
Truck & just buy one item or so. If you don't ,you won't find those
items anywhere

Loud whistling noise when travelling at higher speeds (ie above 50mph)


I had a problem with a whistling car after 50 mph and it turned out to be the front window gasket. I put silicone on the trim and problem solved.
