    Help with squeeling noise from the rear? with videos.

    Hello all, another problem... uuurgh... went out earlier and thought I could here a minor wheel bearing squeel metal on metal type noise. Hardly noticable to the point where I wondered if it was in my head. I was nearly home then on a big wide wet t junction thats covered in crud I floored her and got some nice oversteer out of the corner, lovely!-) anyways after that maneuver the noise got very loud. Its a constant squeel that dissappears at speed and is most obvious decelerating below thirty? My first thoughts are wheel bearing our loads of grit in between the disc and pads?

    Any help, similar experiences with rear wheel bearings on 4wds?

    im pretty sure its our wheel bearings mate, sometimes they groan sometimes they run dry and squeel... theres a kit inc the hub assembly on ebay for 70 quid so its not too bad.. not sure how hard this would be too fit? need a press?

    Hmm sounds like my old focus when the front bearing went. Mine sounds more high pitched but stops when you wet the disks

    mine sounds high pitched when driving,,, think i'll have the caliper off and check for ****e and brake pad snappage then spin her and see if the noise is there with no caliper... its just finding the motivation at the weekend after a hard weeks work uuurgh. kwistof told me he had a snapped pad that created a similar noise, maybe i never got power oversteer and it was the pad broken and jamming??
