Possible rear bearings

I have a hyundai elantra 2001. I have replaced the right rear brakes, rotor and brake cylinder. I am still getting a noise from that area that sounds like a jet engine. What could possible solve this problem, and how do you replace the rear bearings on this car?

Is your hand brakes cable hold the rear brakes? If it does then the cable is rusted inside the cable housing causing the caliper to be holding the other side.. Replace hand brake cables. Or try to release the cable.

New tires, complete alignment, still have rotating wheel noise in rear.

Check your rear brakes. If they are good check your wheel bearings. Hope this helps.

What would it cost to fix a 2005 huandai sonata

It's not the bearing, its the pad or shoe, the grinding noise is your brake. the lining is wore off and it is now metal to metal. The sooner you get it fixed, the cheaper it will be. If you do it yourself and the caliper/brake cylinder is still good, your looking at 20bucks, if you need to replace the brake drum/rotor, it could be anywhere from 10 to 100 more. If you bring it to a shop, they will tell you that you have to replace it no matter what, but if it is only slightly grooved, it's a back brake, you can run it like that or have it resurfaced. The caliper/brake cylinder on the other hand is also going to be anywhere from 10 to 100 dollars, and the line will have to be bleed after changing it. If you have a shop do all the work, If they replace the brake linings and resurface the rotor/drum it shouldnt be more than $100.

I own a 99 hyundai elantra the car has a very bad grinding/vibration in the frontend the drive axeles were already replaced when i bought the car i checked the wheel bearings they seem to be fine so i...

You should check your wheel bearings again and check the front brakes and rotors. Pay close attention to the inner pads and the rotors. You can get a grinding vibration from hard spots in the rotors or the pads and these are often overlooked as a cause. Everyone goes to bearings or trans first, so it is not you everyone does it I've seen it happen for years. But pay close attention to the brakes, worn, hard spots or heat/burn marks all can cause this to happen.

I hear a tapping from my right rear brake when I brake. Doesn't happen when I dont brake. I just replaced the shoes, drums and hardware. This was happening before i replaced all of this too.

dear friend:the tapping noise comes from the brakepads and it means that the anti rattle plates were not installed on the last brake pad

Hyundai Elantra 2001... We cannot remove the Caliper from the axel without pulling the bearing apart. Any Suggestions??? PLEASE and thanks :)

the bearing is inside of the caliper. whenyou pull the caliper, the bearing should come out with it. that is why they recommend that you change the bearing when you pull the caliper.
