Is it the brakes? This rubbing/metal noise in rear when nearly at standstill.

I would advise getting the rear brakes, suspension and bearing's inspected , it may just be the brakes need cleaning up, as a build up of brake dust could cause this type of noise when driven for a while, ask a friend if they can recommend a mechanic , don't leave it to long as if there is a problem it will only get worse

I have a Hummer H3. I hear Noise from wheels while turning & doesn't stop. Also I hear a grinding noise when I hit the brakes. Dealer had to resurface rotors. Problem started at 15000 miles. Took it...


I have the same problem with my 2008 Hummer H3. I had the front and rear rotors resurfaced. I am now thinking of getting the rotors replaced with bigger more durable rotors. Solution about the sticking brake caliper sounds about right if you hear a grinding noise as you drive without even touching the brake pedal.

Brakes go all the way to the floor and is hard to stop. How can we check to see if it is the master cylinder or the brake booster, or the other little valve thingy that is black but has no name on it.

Look for liquid around the wheels or dripping on the ground, if a wheel cylinder or caliper isn't leaking you need a master cylinder. Get it fixed by a pro.

Creeking Noise in Rear when brakes applied

I had a similar problem......there was a rhythmic creaking noise coming from the passendger side rear wheel......I lubricated the contact points where the parking brake mechanism contacts the wheel and the noise is now gone...and has been for several months now.

2004 Audi A4 1.8T, I have black dust on the rear wheels constantly.

hey XNC!

The black coating is definitely brake pad dust, and there are a number of commercially available wheel sealants / treatments that will help minimize the dust accumulation by coating/sealing the wheel surface, some with a Teflon-like additive. Check them out online or at your local auto supply

There are also physical shields, such as Kleen Wheels, that help control the problem: See: for more information on their product.

This usually becomes a problem when the original seal coating on the rim is scrubbed off or deteriorates, leaving the metal pores exposed to and coated with this accumulation, which sticks to raw metal much more tenaciously than it does to a sealed surface.

Hope this helps and good luck!
