Grinding noise from rear wheel

I've been having a grinding noise from the back of the left wheel.

it's there when I cruise

noise gets worse when I brake

gets better when I drive at highway speeds or maybe the wind is hiding the noise.

it doesn't sound like I need to change the pads.

thanks for the reply. a friend of mine said the same thing. I'll go check it out soon. I hope my rotors don't get warped when I have time to go.

Might be a wheel bearing getting worn down. I had a similar problem when i was running 22's on my other car. the wheels destroyed the bearings.

With bearings i've always heard a hummm instead of a grinding noise. You might want to check the e brake pads inside the rotors. Have you ever driven the car with the e-brake on?

^how many miles you got?


Very easy to test bearing.

Jack the car up
take off the wheel
take off the brakes
spin the hub and listen for the noise, or wobble it back and forth to see if there is any play.

His rotor was cracked from the heat the caliper had generated

Grinding noise from rear wheel

Yeah! I bought an extended power train warranty!!!! BUT it only covers the axel and all the internal parts not the wheel bearings nor rotors. I got screwed!!! I have 82K miles on my G. So I'm past the factory warranty! So take a good look @ your warranty info.
