Question about 2004 Ford F150
Rear wheel makes noises---scraping, clunking, thuds, whistles....doesn't seem to stop when i apply the brakes...doesn't seem to happen at high speeds---just when i'm going thru the neighborhood...it appears and disappears...i had the brake place take a look and they said everything seemed fine there...
i was thinking bearing, but it all but disappears at higher speeds, and doesn't really sound like a whining noise....and it's not a constant thing, like i said...i even checked the little hub cap to make sure there wasn't anything in it...
i dropped it off at the dealer a few weeks ago for that and another problem---they claimed they didn't hear any noises...now it seems it's getting more frequent.....
if i jack it up and check the play in the tire, will that help me determine if it's a bearing issue?
i had a ford explorer in the past and had a front bearing go completely out, so i kind know what that sounds like---this is more squeeling and scraping....
You can try the bearings but I think if you take off the rear rotors and look at the emergency brakes you'll find the problem. You might want to ride the emergency brake a little in lieu of removing the rotors to confirm the problem. Also some wheel covers make noise-drive without them and see if it helps.
