Question about 1996 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

Squeek I have a squeek coming from my rear wheel. It doesn't sound like the normal break pad squeek when that wears down. Could this be a rear wheel bearing and how do I fix this? Thanks

Rear wheel bearings don't squeak, what could have happened is the brake shoe retaining clip hardware may have broke. Common to break due to corrosion if they have never been replaced. I always buy the brake shoe spring retaining kit every second break job since there only $15.00 at Auto Zone. 
The other thing to that the squeak could be coming from is the U joints at the drive shaft. The U joints may have gone dry of grease and needs to be replaced, You have two of them and the drive shaft needs to be removed to change the U joints so might as well have both of them changed. 
Good luck and hope this helps.

My toyota corolla2005 rear right side wheel scrubing th tire when breaks


I would first check the break parts on that tire. remove the tire...making sure you take the precaution to chock the other tires and use an appropriate jack and proceed to removing the tire. Once the tire is down look at the the components for wear. Some break pads come equipped with a metal blade that once the pad wears out this metal plate comes in contact with the rotar or drum and makes a high pitch metal grind sound. This would be the indicator to change your pads and may possibly need to resurface your rotars or drums to spec. Let me know if that's what it was. GE.

97 Chevy S10 rear end squeek that goes away when brakes are applied


If you have rear disc brakes, one of the rotors could be warped and causing the pads to move in the caliper.
You should be able to remove one wheel at a time, lock down the rotor with the lug nuts, and put the trans in low gear or reverse to listen for the noise.

Corolla 2002 (with ABS) after changing left axle inner boot now has a scratching sound from left wheel continous after changing wheel bearings, plz advise


This would normally be from the brake wear pad indicator contacting the rotor, which happens when the pads are worn down.

However you have just got work done around there, and pad wear should have been noticed, so maybe the wear indicators (little spring clips) are dislodged or fitted wrongly.

How do i fix a squeeky wheel, possibly bearing?


A bearing typically has more of grinding type of rumble rather than a squeek.

Try checking your brakes...the caliper may not be releasing completely. Cleaning them can solve the problem and prevent premature wear.

I have a 95 honda civic 2dr coup. when ever the car is in motion i hear squeeking/ grinding from the rear breaks. I don't know what could keep causing this. I just replaced the rear break pads, drum...


you may need a hub bearing. do you know which side? they're relatively easy to check; just jack up rear of car, release e-brake and rotate each wheel, listening for any noise or rumble; another way is to place your hand on the coil spring while spinning the wheel, as any rumbling that can't be heard will be felt in the spring. hope this helps.

My left front wheel squeeks until i press the break pedal


Most likely the brake shoe in that wheel is worn down to the rivets and those metal rivets are scraping on the drum. If you have a new brake shoe installed right away you will be ok. if you wait, you may also have to have the drums turned. By the way brake shoes come in pairs so they will change both front brake pads. Joe

My 2004 chevy tahoe makes a squeaking noise while driving and now there's brake dust forming on the rims.


If the squeeking is happening over bumps, and is not related to breaking, it could be a bearing in the steering linkage. My tahoe is doing the same thing, and my local garage says it is only a dealer fix. That is why I am searching this site now, is to find out if anyone else is complaining about this. I was told that GM is fully aware of this problem.

Abs breaks


generally speaking, if that condition happens while braking coming to a stop under maybe 5--10 mph it indicates a wheel speed sensor is no good or a bad connection. if the front wheel bearings have sensors inside them they should be ok. there are sensors at both rear wheels as well. the true diagnosis is to have the abs module scanned for codes and that just may point you to that particular wheel to address.
