Rear wheel bearings


Get a different shop to check all of the suspension components - if the struts both snapped, something is going on that's a much bigger concern than the wheel bearings. Look for bent control arms and other suspension components - check clearances and bushings everywhere in the rear, make sure nothing was installed backwards or forgotten. Struts don't just snap, and bearings should definitely not die every couple thousand miles. Also, have a dealer look at it, to make sure that things are installed properly. It won't be cheap there, but they might notice something that other shops routinely miss. I hate suggesting that ANYONE go to a dealership for service, but in this case, they're the most likely to notice something out of spec...

I test drove 2009 hyundai accent recently. car has 48000 miles already. Some squeaky noise is coming when you apply the break? I am thinking of buying this car. Is this a serious problem?


Hi, squeaky brakes can be as simple as dust from the brake pads ( this can be solved by washing the brakes with a hose pipe quite easy if it has alloy wheels.
If its a constant noise the brake pads could be due for changing which could be normal for that amount of miles( May also need discs ).
I would`nt let that stop you buying the car as they are a good car
I hope i have set your mind at rest

2003 ponitac sunfire, almost 88,000 miles. Slowly was making a 90 degree curve when loud pounding sound started somewhere in the rear of car. Stopped & put it in park and revered the engine and there...


Sounds like a combo condition concerning your rear brakes and wheel bearings, if the noise was or is louder on right turns then left replace the right side wheel bearing and vice versa.Get this car to a shop however immediately as the ABS brake system may be trying to lock up the wheel that may be wobbling causing all sorts of havoc.

Loud squeaky noise from front tires when turning and somtimes whe


Hi my name is Tom and I can help you.

Driving with your emergency brake on is only going to affect your rear brakes. There is a cable running from the emergency brake lever to your rear brakes.

You did not say how long you drove with the emergency brake on, but even a short distance and you forced the front brakes to do the work of stopping the car. This causes overuse which translates to heat. When the brakes over heat they "fade" and do not stop the car effectively.

In addition the heavy load of doing all the stopping causes the brakes not to realign. Therefore, when you go around corners the brakes pads will rub against the rotors.

I would suggest you get the brakes looked at or look at them yourself. I can help you do the job but I would need to talk to you directly. Let me know what I can do to help.

Rattling noise coming from the driver side of the car when I drove over 40 miles per hour.


It sounds like 1 of 2 problems but to start with jack up the drivers side rear of car and block front wheels with 2 blocks of wood or 2 bricks , put a stand under chassis and then your safe to work.
Release hand brake and spin rear wheels ..and then hold 1 hand bottom and top and try to shake the wheel.. any movement means worn bearings ..any noise when spinning means worn wheel bearings..If ok
get under the car and bang the exhaust all along and if the rattle comes when you get to the muffler you have you answer.
Let me know how you get on . RON

it would not hurt to check rear tire wear due to misalignment
cupped tires will cause a faulty bearing type noise or humming.
