    Mystery sound?

    Mystery sound....

    I'm hearing a weird arse squeaky noise from rear, right hand side door as the car slows down... I initially thought it was something under the car, took to the mechanics but they failed to find anything wrong underneath the car.

    So I striped off the both right hand side doors, front and rear and went for a drive... still doing the same noise.... any ideas?

    Are you sure it's coming from the right rear? I'd suspect a wheel bearing or something rubbing the brakes.

    Your vehicle is an extension of your skill as a driver, not a substitute for it.

    Does the vehicle only make the noise while the brakes are applied? How about if you are sitting still and rev. the engine do you hear the noise? Have you had any recent maintainece? How many miles are on the vehicle? I have heard some bad hubs make those kinds of sounds however MOST of the time you will usually hear a bad wheel bearing before the hub goes...Also I'm thinking maybe brake walk....Do you get any vibration felt in the seat when the brakes are applied at high speeds such as 50+ mph? Its hard to diag. noises over the internet fore I we cannot hear/feel/touch the car.. OH also how about the ridges on the back of the rear rotors? sometimes due to rust build up behind the backing plate it pushes the plate out and contacts the lip around the inner edge of the brake rotor (of course this only pretty much takes in account if you really hear the noise while your making quick sharp turns)...
