I need help with this noise.



This is not my car, but this is what it sounds like. As long as im going over 20mph I can hear it, its not super loud but if I have my windows down I can hear it pretty good. When I hit bumps the noise changes a little, but the weird thing is when I press on the breaks even a tiny bit the noise goes away so I was thinking breaks but im not sure anyone ever had a similar problem? Its driving me nuts.

The noise is only there while driving, never idling and it does not change with engine speed. So im thinking its not engine related.

If it happens when the rpm gose up it has to do with pullies and something has to be not moving correctly for their to be a squeak I recommend at least checking the pullies and belt just encase u never know

Wheel bearings or ball joints maybe. I would say a wheel bearing.

But if its a wheel bearing it should always be making noise, i would not think that applying the brakes would stop it would it? And when do wheel bearings normally start going bad?

No cause I just replaced a wheel bearing in my GT and it would come and go. ...depending on how hot the bearing got. Believe me, when I changed it, it fell apart in my hands. Lol!

Interesting, well mine always does it no matter what, and the braking thing is whats bugging me but I will look into the wheel bearing. And I know all wheel bearings dont go out at the same time but does 40,000 miles seem a bit early?

Anything is possible.

40,000 does seem early but it's either a bearing or maybe if it only happens when going over bumps, that it could be a messed up spring isolator? In other words your suspension springs in the rear could be squeaking? I could barely hear the vid so it's hard to say for sure.

Re: I need help with this noise.

ok, not saying ANY of yall are wrong but I don't think it has nothing to do with the engine, brake, drivetrain etc. just saying.If you want to rule out a wheel bearing then the easiest way to do this is go to a empty parking lot or non busy road and move the steering wheel to the left and right real quick as you go over 5-10 mph but do not exceed 20 MPH for safety reason. Depending on what wheel bearing that would be suspected bad as the weight of the car gets on that side it would get louder but I can tell you thats not your problem . That sound is coming from inside of the car and the reason I think that is the sound is too destinct to be engine or wheel bearing. If it was outside of the car the wind would muffle the sound a little bit but that sound is coming right behide you or near you. To me the sound is coming from the back of the car like right behide you.

Here is what I would do before spending any money on parts, get in the back seat of the car and start tapping on the b-pillar panels and work your way back underneath the rear side window panels to right above the rear seat. Tap on the rear seat as well and then fold them down and tap on the frame. DO this on both sides of the car or have someone sitting in the back seat of the car while going down the highway and have them listen for the sound...That sound to me seems like its coming from somewhere inside and the only time you hear it is when you are going over 20mph and the body/frame starts to flex because of road conditions. To see if it is a ball joint lift the car up and put one hand on top of the tire and then the bottom of the tire and try to movie it up and down. If you get play then its the ball joint, from what I have seen in the shop sometimes a ball joint will cause abnormal wear on the tire. Bushings yes, but the only way you would be able to see which one is get underneath the car and to spray each bushing one at time and then drive it and see if the noise goes away If it does then replace the last bushing you sprayed or replace them all. But if the bushing was that worn out you would hear more of a pop instead of a squeaking noise. That sound is more of a squeaking noise. IMO, if it was my car I would do what I said above to rule possible things or test should you say, before I started to buy parts based because that can get expensive. At least have someone ride in the back sit out the road and see if you dont hear it coming from some where back there and let me know.

If need to be and you can give me your number in a PM and one day im off or you have time I will call you and help you out cuz there is something loose somewhere in the back in the cab its self or possible in the trunk.

Now that does sound like a wheel bearing esp when you when into corners and the weight of the car pushed on that bad wheel bearing.

Im almost certain its outside the car, when the windows are down it is louder and when you go by fences or park cars you can hear it really good. And the noise does not change when cornering and there is never a howling or popping noise it pretty much stays the same. The only time it changes is when I apply any amount of pressure to the brakes it goes away. I will try to get a video of my noise and post it today. Thanks for the help everyone.

My Goodyear F1's are very noisy, and it's like a roar type sound. There might be other brands that are noisy, but this is no squeak or metallic chirp sound.

The shim is inside the caliper between the caliper and the brake pad

Do you need to take the caliper off to get to it?

When u do get it apart, get some brake grease from a parts store, (they sell them in little packets.) and coat the areas where the shim sits.

Ok here are the videos.



The first one is hard to hear for a second but you should hear it and the second one i taped my phone to the gas tank cover so the exhaust is really loud but you can hear the squeak well.

That's gotta be wheel bearings. Maybe if your brake pads are really old. Does it change immediately when the brakes are applied? If not, it seems to be bearings.

Yes right when I press on the brakes with any amount of pressure the noise goes away. You can kind of tell in the second video if you pay close attention.
