Without a description of the noise, this is impossible to diagnose. Common problem with these vehicles is a "grinding" type noise. This will be a bearing that has gone bad or brake pads that are beyond the service life (louder screeching or grinding upon braking). Popping noises are the CV drive axles are bad (noise is typically louder when when the vehicle is in motion and turning).
Check the brake hose going the caliper or drum on that wheel, its probably leaking. That would explain the lack of pressure. Dont know whether your car has disc or drum brakes on the rear, could be either. But if the hose is leaking, fluid will be all over the inner part of the wheel. And check your brake fluid to see if its low.
Or one of the springs in the drum could have broken or popped off. That would explain the grinding noise.
A broken spring is more likely since
you hear the grinding noise
because the brake shoe would always be touching the drum because the spring keeps the shoe from contacting the drum when the brakes are not being pushed.
Sounds like one of the springs that hold the rear brakes in place broke. Jack her up, pop off the tire, remove the drum and take a look. If you need to see what a good one looks like, look on the other side.
This is not a very common problem, but I saw it last year on a 69 chevelle.
I have a similar problem with my kia sedona 2003. The kia dealer told me to have the disc pads replaced. I brought it to a brake pads bonding shop cause its cheaper to replace there. But the thinnest pad are still half thick. The real problem was on the back plate, it's touching on the brake disc making the sound and scratching it. Just push the back plate away from the disc to solve the problem. If I have known this I could have used those disc pads for a few more months.
from my experience its sounds like ur front rotors may need resurfaceing...if ur doing that...may as well replace the brakes on the front as well...sometimes glazed front brake pads may make a sound but never heard of it as a grind, usually its a squeal...have ur dealer check ur rotors for hot spots in which u would need them replaced if they are overheated..also check the front pads for cracked brake pad material
