First thing check if lugs are all tight and inspect the tire for foreign objects stuck in it.
if ok then jack the car up until the tire is off the ground then see if you can wobble the tire side to side if it moves or wobbles at all the bearings are bad. get them replaced immediately. this could lead to wheel loss and or possibly death from accident.
if by chance it isn't the bearings then spin the wheel and listen for noises.check the brakes pull up the emergency brake one click at a time and try to spin the wheel if it makes noise the brakes and or rotors are worn and need replacing. if it spins freely on one click of the handle then chances are you need to rep[lace the breaks. it should be difficult to turn or provide resistance.
if not try two clicks of the handle or pedal until you find resistance in spinning the wheel.
if you find resistance make sure it is constantly even all the way around if it gets easy then hard to turn then easy with every rotation then you have a warped rotor or hub.
replace as necessary.
good luck.

Hello, Rob is it a consistent sound or repetitious sound per wheel revolution, of it's the later one its most likely your rear wheel bearing that needs to be replaced. As far as the reverse lights, you may have to take a led tester to the rear and see if it's getting any juice from your fuse box, even though your fuse looks okay, there may be a break in line. Just make sure that it's the correct amp fuse that is required.

Can low fuel affect the climbing of my Pajero Mitsubishi manual station wagon?

Hi Jegf, you should have your drive axles universal joints checked (wheel sides) and the hub bearings. The "donk" suggests a faulty bearing. Also when you start off again and there is no noise, this could mean that the bearing in question is quiet under load but rattles when not.
If you brake, does the noise go away? Then it is almost surely a bearing on the way out.
I have seen cases where the noise comes from the brakes itself, e,g, a rusted splash guard with some loose rusted parts touching the brake disk. But this would hardly produce a "donk" when stopping.
Regards, Winfried

Have a metal grinding noise when turning left only.

Replace the right side wheel bearing. But before you replace it. Listen to see if the noise is coming from the front or back. If you can't tell, Put some one in the back seat. Front bearings usually make noise. rear bearings, the noise can come and go.

Could be low on oil, or need a shot of additive if it is a limited slip differential.
The noise may be the clutches in the diff or one of the axle bearings.
