Why is there a scraping noise in the rear end when turning left or right?

you do not say what the vehicle is John. I would say that the vehicle has got to go up for a look see.

The sound of scraping when turning either way indicates a fault with a shared component or the same fault with the same compnent on both sides.
might be that the wheel bearings are worn and you have distorted disks that scrape against the brake pads because there is play in the wheels.
Micht be a suspension issue of some kind but without the id of your vehicle it is hard to say.
A visit to a suspension/brake specialist is probably adviseable

hope it is not the diff

Rear left wheel lockt up

You can adjust the handbrake from inside the car at the rear of the handbrake. All cars are a little different so you have to look around the area. Usually you have to remove a panel there.

Jack up the back left wheel and rotate it by hand. if it makes a scraping sound, adjust the handbrake by turning the left side adjusting nuts.

This may not work if the problem is the brake caliper or something inside the wheel.
hope this helps.

Changed left rear wheel bearing in 91 soarer and less than 24hours later making same noises could something else be causing bearing damage help

Something might be scraping after you replaced the bearing. If it has disc brakes, maybe the dust cover got loose. Can't help without you describing the sound.

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.

Rear scraping sound, Also when placed on lift and in gear (all wheel drive) the rear left wheel does not spin

Take it in for proper diagnosis - that's not supposed to happen in an 'ALL WHEEL DRIVE' - all WHEELS ARE SUPPOSED TO TURN.

Scraping noise from ther rear

Make sure the parking brake cables are away from the rear tires on the inside.And also if you check everything out in the rear brake department and everything checks out,look at the inner part of the drum and make sure your backing plates are bent into the drums.Best way to test this is to jack up rear tires and turn each one to pin point to where the sound is coming from..Your rear u-joints could also be making the noise to.But check the rear drums over once more to rule that stuff out and jacking up the rear and spinning both sides to narrow your search down...GOOD LUCK..

Scraping noise in rear of 2000 Toyota Rav4 AWD

just wanted to stop to offer some tips. I just put in new brakes on last night. I too had the same problem. The brakes were fine, but I replaced them anyway. The drum seem fine, and my emergency cable was a bit loose too. What you can try is hiting the ebrake while going in reverse or in drive. It may help. If not, adjust the ebrake cable will be needed, it not too hard to do. It should be by the rear tires towards the center.

Right rear is making a sound of medal scraping medal. I believe it maybe the wheel bearings.

If it's a scraping sound, when does it happen? If it's when you hit the brakes, then it's likely your rear brake pads/shoes are down to the metal and are scraping. This can happen when you're not hitting the brakes, however. Bad wheel bearings are usually a moaning/roaring sound that increases as road speed increases. Ditto that for differential bearings - if they go out, you usually get a roaring noise that increases the faster you go.

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.
