Question about 2000 Volkswagen Golf

I've been hearing a faint buzzing noise at the rear wheel and today I had smoke there too. What is that about? I've also had some noise while steering sometimes but recently had the fluids checked and they were OK.

Noises are are to diagnoise without hearing them myself but ill list some checks for you to do. first, jack up the wheel and check it turns freely with the hand brake off, make sure you have carbon left on your pads,you might need brakes. second check the brake disk isnt wore with a lip and the steel from the pads isnt rubbing the disk. third, get someone to watch the wheels at the back as you drive away slowly to make sure the wheels are spinning correctly and that the caliper isn't locking, fourth drive your car at speed if the noise gets louder the faster go it could be a bearing.good look I hope this helps (Rate me answer please)

Sounds (pun intended) like a problem with the differential (that globe that connects to the drive-shaft and to the two rear tires. Maybe, one wheel has bad bearings, adding resistance into the differential.

Your last sentence in the heading got cut off. I'm skeptical that such a noise would be from inside the wheel, but to check switch your front and rear on that side, or just use the spare on LR for a day or so and see if clicking goes away. From your description, it will probably be hard to spot visually. A mechanic may have to listen to it, or look into it.
Good luck.

Volvo xc90 2004 buzzing in steering wheel, clunck noise under car


that sounds like you are low on power steering fluid ... when the level gets low then the pump starts to ingest air and that produces a buzzing sound when you turn the wheel .....i would add or change the fluid and check for leaks and mechanical loosness in the under car linkages ...you can have that checked at your next oil change .

After 20 miles rear brakes tighten up and makes thumping noise


It is probably the flexible rubber brake line that runs from the axle to the metal brake line on the frame. When these become old they don't allow the brake fluid pressure to reduce when the brake is released.

Smoke coming out from the middle of the two rear tires right? Sound like your rear differential is out of lubricant. Leftover lubricant is probably getting burned by heat from the friction. Have your rear differential lubed up.
