View Full Version : Help!

Good evening, friends.

I need your support or advice on this ongoing issue that I have been having from the rear wheel on the passenger side. I keep hearing this squeaking noise, almost like metal on metal.
I recently replaced the Brake pads+rotors for the rear two wheels. So that I believe should not be the issue since the squeaking noise happened before anything was replaced. I took a short video to help you guys listen to the noise that I have to listen to while on my daily drives. I hope that the volume can be heard and the noise can be heard also.

Thank you, any help or advice will be greatly appreciated.

If you have recently replaced the brake pads and rotors, then that leaves only a couple of other things; 1. a brake clip is dragging somewhere in the rotor or 2. Wheel bearing is starting to fail. Is there a way you can post the video on something other than Facebook so those of us who don't use it can see the video?

Another thought.... Is the car lowered and are you running an H&R sway bar? There have been experiences in the past where the sway bare ends rub on the axle.

Youtube works better. I can't see the FB video.

Kudos for attempting a video post though. I'm still surprised, in this age of smartphones, that some come here with just text based descriptions of their noises, expecting real help.

Is the squeaking noise heard only under braking or is it whenever the car is in motion(braking, accelerating, etc)? It could be a suspension bushing. More rare, though possible is what happened to me. I recently found out that my A4 had a bent rear wheel hub due to me sliding into a curb a few years ago. Anyways, my brakes developed a horrendous squealing noise under braking because the rotor was turning in an uneven fashion thus pushing pads back and forth in their carriers, metal-on-metal(move the anti-squeal grease away).
