Roaring noise from Rear Wheel when braking and turning

My car has started to make a very loud noise when braking and turning. At first I thought it was thunder then that I was possibly dragging something that had caught under the car. Its my rear passenger side wheel. Doesn't happen always (I'd just driven 60 miles without incident) and it only started at the end of the journey when turning both left and right. I've checked and there is nothing caught in wheel or under the car. Thanks

Could be a wheel bearing. Sounds like it is going to break down on you very soon. I would not muck around, just get it fixed. However don't tell the Mechanic you have a broken wheel bearing, he will just change it because that is what you told him / her. Tell him / her you have an intermittent roaring noise from the back passenger side. I made this mistake once and a $1 rubber bush had fallen out of the end of my shock absorber. I got a new bearings though :)

This is just because of the warned out wheel bearings just replace the bearings of the rear wheels to sort out this issue.

What would cause a loud roaring in the back seat of my 2001 Monte Carlo as I am driving?


That roaring noise should be a wheel bearing. Jack up the rear wheels and spin the tires by hand. You can hear a grinding noise if the noise inside the car is as load as you state.. The only other noise that will be like that is the differental gears inside the drive axle

Makes a low roaring noise when you are at crusing speed.


One of the front wheel bearings are bad. Jack it up and see if one is loose, the noise will usually change if you swerve back and forth while driving. Could also be a rear pinion bearing in the rear axle.
