SOURCE: Rear Axle Bearing

i know for a fact that the bearing comes with the hub., and if the old bearing is badly damage you may need to heat it to remove it from the axel...so this may be a rather big job if your not equipt
with torch or other ...

SOURCE: 2003 PT Cruiser: Scraping Metal sound from BACK left tire area when braking

My rear brakes were making the same sound for over one year. My rear shoes were hard as a stone or glazed. The pads did not look worn, but they made the medal-on-medal sound when I braked. It was pretty loud.

I replaced the brakes shoes and the problem went away. I replaced the shoes myself in about a hour. They were not hard to figure out.

SOURCE: Noise from rear wheel area that sounds like bearing noise.

Might want to check your camber adjustments and look into shocks and struts. They could all be worn out but prolly the camber is off causing abnormal road noise and abnormal tire wear

While driving a 1999 ford contour, the rear passenger wheel made a loud noise and the wheel froze. Put it in reverse then forward. Slowed down for a speed bump and the wheel froze again. Still frozen.


wheel bearing ?
Was rear wheel bearing making a whomp whomp noise as you have been driving ?
You could have a seized wheel bearing - which is not good to drive on and eventually may lead to wheel being seized onto axle !
Hand brake stuck on ?
Could also be a stuck hand brake from failure of handbrake cable .

My drivers side rear tire locked up while driving in my 84 Nissan Datsun pulsar NC what's wrong


'84 ...*lotsa* miles on it ....like 450K plus if you drive the "normal" 15K/year. First, and most likely, thing that comes to mind is the wheel bearing has seized. Since this is a front wheel drive car, there are sealed roller bearings for the rear wheel hubs. At 450K on the odometer there are *lots* of components that have reached or exceeded their normal service life. I would suspect the left rear sealed wheel bearing is one of them ...followed closely by the right rear wheel bearing. If it's the bearing? Get them both done.

Pontiac wave 2005 the rear left tire does not turn


1st check the parking brake. Are you in cold weather? If so then it may be a frozen drum. Otherwise you will need your brakes and/or wheel bearings checked out. Good luck!

"left front tire locks up"


as in "won't turn"???
you probably have a seized wheel bearing/hub assembly or frozen brake caliper - you can remove the wheel hub/bearing assembly yourself in about an hour with common hand tools (an impact wrench will really speed this up) - you can rent the wheel nut removal socket at most auto parts stores - you will have to have an automotive shop with a bearing press to remove and replace the wheel bearing ($30-$60) - if the caliper is seized - replace the entire assembly (and probably the ruined brake rotors and pads)

Left front tire locks up when weight is applied. Works when both tires are off the ground and free wheeling. Also the brake caliper seems to not release the pressure when the brakes are released.

The rear right tire is stuck and will not move.


Jack up the car and remove the right rear wheel. Check to see if the brake is frozen on (drum brake - you should be able to pull off the drum; disk brake, you should be able to slide a piece of stiff paper between the caliper and rotor). If the brake is locked on, first see if the parking brake cable is jammed in its housing at the wheel.

If it is not the brake, your wheel bearing may be seized up. You'll have to pull it apart and replace it, and you may also have to replace the axle (if the axle is bent, galled, cracked or discolored, it's a risk for breakage, which is at least as dangerous as a tire blowout).

Back Tire on 1997 Nissan Quest xe is smoking from rear tire and smells like rubber burning.


Sounds like you have a brake or wheel bearing seized on that vehicle, best to let it completely cool off before attempting anything.
jack rear tire and support with jack stand, try turning the tire by hand once its off the ground, if it turns or doesn't turn either way you must pull the wheel and determine what the cause is or was for all that smoke and smell.
Pull the brake drum and check the wheel cylinder for leaks and if it is frozen holding the rear brake locked on that side if it is replace the brakes both rears and wheel cylinders both rears and the appropriate brake drums if they are worn out and heat cracked.
If the brakes appear to be hanging due to the emergency brake hanging up, spray the emergency cables, try to adjust the cables after you replace the brakes, bleed and adjust the system and walla you are safe and sound.
If you have a frozen wheel bearing you must remove the frozen bearing off the rear spindle stub shaft, either bty heat or impact chisel, check spindle for signs of wear if ok just lightly sand with 180 wet/dry paper, pull out the bearing and punch out the inner outer races along with the inner grease seal and replace all five items, repack the bearings and hub with a high temp resistant wheel bearing grease, re install the brake drum re install the hub nut and cotter pin to a proper torque and walla... Happy Motoring!!

Honda civic 84 my brakes in the back right side has seized in the


Its probaly the wheel bearing that seized up, and you have to get the car towed, and get the bearing knocked out and replaced...Um sure the rear brakes are fine, because rear shoes dont really lock up, unless someone overtighten them, after doing a rear brake job...Goodluck...

Rear tire seizing


Check rear bearing and be sure there is enough axle grease. A seized bearing will cause the problem you describe.
