A few things might cause this so lets gets some facts from you first. I will give you a few things to try.

1. Does the noise kinda fade when you apply the brake?
1.b If so..Its time for a brake job.

2. Look and feel all the way around the rear tires for an obstacle.
2.b If something is felt that's you rub.

3. Grab the rear tires and the top. Put your hands at 10 and 2 like you would hold the steering wheel. With force shake the tire in and out, if slop is felt...rear wheel bearings might be the issue.

This should point you in the right direction. Please comment back if further assistance is needed. Hope this helped :)

I have a rubbing noise in steering column perhaps at firewall? Does it at very low speed and turning wheel to left. More when backing, more when temps are cold. Had the same exact thing on a 2006 Si

It sounds like a mast jacket bearing but if you have had the problem while still under warranty you should be able to argue successfully for it to still be under warranty.

There may be some problem in your driver side suspension. Try replacing that and you may get rectified from the problem. You can purchase the suspension parts here. Try this link.

I have a 98 chevy 1500 series that is making a rubbing sound in the front driver side, also you can feel it **** when you are driving. could it be a wheel bearing and if so how much does this usually cost...

is it a four or two wheel drive? It is my understanding that the C designates two wheel drive and that the K designates 4 wheel drive? If it is a two wheel drive it will narrow the problems down a fair bit, if it is 4 wheel drive constant then then there a couple of things i would check first. Secondly is the rubbing noise sound like a metalic grind?, a rubbery sound or a loud fast clicking noise?

My moms explorer- when she turns hard left or right she gets a rubbing sound like from the tires bit thats not whats rubbing. it sounds like the 4x4 is engaging. she has to back up about 15-30 feet to fix...

No fuse wont help, this sounds like the 4wd is engaged, the front axle hubs need to be checked or the front axle actuator may be stuck, there are a few things that can cause this problem and if its all wheel drive that makes things harder to check out, soory theres no easy fix without having it looked at.also make sure all the tires have the proper amount of air in them 35psi is good, hope this helps.

While driving i hear a rubbing sound passenger side front end the faster i go the louder it gets i just got it back from the shop they can not find the cause all 4 wheels turning freely on lift

Sounds like one of three things. A bad bearing would make a rubbing sound and get worse the faster you traveled. A warped rotor could also produce that sensation. Lastly but not as likely is a stuck caliper. Since the wheels turned freely on a lift, the caliper isn't as likely as the first two but still a possibility. I'd take the car to a brake shop and have a free diagnosis done. I'm still leaning toward a bad bearing. Best of luck and thank you for using Fixya!

My 1989 Toyota Van LE 4wd started squeaking when I turn left

Actually this sounds more like your left tire is rubbing against the tire well, this was relatively common amongst these models, as I have one myself that did that while turning right, I solved it by hammering out the dent that was in the well. Hope this helped GL!

Stalls out in drive not in reverse

check the wiring harness on top of the transmission for rubbing thru and shorting, there is a bracket the harness attaches to near the battery and most of the time when the transmission is removed people forget to clip it back in place or the clips break and it will rub on the shifter shaft and arc out when the tranny is shifted in certin gears or when the engine moves while driving, sounds like this could be your problem good luck and dont forget to rate this, -jeff
