    To answer you question about when do I hear the noise, when I reach the speed of 40-49 I can hear it inside the vehicle but when I reach the speed of 50 - I have to roll down the window to hear the noise . It doesn't make the noise when I put on the brake but the brake pedal does make a husky scraping sound when I press it down.

    THANK YOU !

If it's a scraping sound, when does it happen? If it's when you hit the brakes, then it's likely your rear brake pads/shoes are down to the metal and are scraping. This can happen when you're not hitting the brakes, however. Bad wheel bearings are usually a moaning/roaring sound that increases as road speed increases. Ditto that for differential bearings - if they go out, you usually get a roaring noise that increases the faster you go.

Changed left rear wheel bearing in 91 soarer and less than 24hours later making same noises could something else be causing bearing damage help


Something might be scraping after you replaced the bearing. If it has disc brakes, maybe the dust cover got loose. Can't help without you describing the sound.

Noise coming from rear passenger side wheel


Could be a bad wheel bearing or defective brake components. Jack the wheel up, spin it, and listen for the noise. If a 'scraping' sound, it is likely brakes. If more of a rumbling, grinding sound, then check the bearings. These are a greased-for-life bearings, so replacement is the only option. Hope this helps!

Noise from offside rear wheel when turning, it sounds like a bearing but we don't think it is that, its not really a 'knocking' more of a scraping, grinding sound. Its not continious, seems to occur mainly...


Have the front brakes checked alot of times the brake pads wear down to the point that the wear warning indicator starts to rub on the rotor or disc and makes a scraping sound when turning, your front brake pads are due to be replaced, I am 80% sure.

You can try the bearings but I think if you take off the rear rotors and look at the emergency brakes you'll find the problem. You might want to ride the emergency brake a little in lieu of removing the rotors to confirm the problem. Also some wheel covers make noise-drive without them and see if it helps.

Rear wheel loose


Jack it up..take off the wheel and look, ASAP! Is it grinding when you spin it? Is there visible oil leakins or visible metal shavings. Sounds like a bearing to me.

93 Grand Caravan right rear wheel/brake problem(s)


well i can help with problem #2

even if you tightened the wheel bearing, it is probably worn out..

what it does when it's loose is you won't hear much noise when you drive on a strait road but the minute you put some weight on it, like when you take a curve, the weight of the body is applied on the bearing resulting in a scraping noise....

and the faster you'll drive the more noise you'll get

so let's say you take a left turn you're gonna hear noise from the right wheel...

A clacking or popping noise on turns means one of the CV joints is bad. A scraping sound means you need to oil the steering wheel support bearing, or maybe something like loose change fell between the steering shaft and collum.

2003 PT Cruiser: Scraping Metal sound from BACK left tire area when braking


My rear brakes were making the same sound for over one year. My rear shoes were hard as a stone or glazed. The pads did not look worn, but they made the medal-on-medal sound when I braked. It was pretty loud.

I replaced the brakes shoes and the problem went away. I replaced the shoes myself in about a hour. They were not hard to figure out.
