Grinding noise from rear passanger side wheel

I am not even sure where to begin with this one. I started hearing a grinding noise the other day from my rear right wheel. My friend said it is the bearing. I brought it to the dealership this morning at 7AM so I can leave by 8 or so. I was at the dealership for 5 hours!!!!

The first thing they tried to do was sell me service. I insisted that I get my service done elsewhere because it is so much cheaper. They kept telling me how important it is to use OEM crap... so I ask them how much it would be to change the trans fluid... He said $139. I was like "HOLY MOLY!!! I can pay $79 at K-Mart for the same thing."

I went in the back by the tech who was working on my car and asked him if he could do it off the books.. I mean he has a family and a few mouths to feed. I gave him $60 for 20 minutes of work. He was happy... He showed me that the rear bearing is not bad, he showed me that the brakes weren't bad.. he said it must be the tires. I then went to the place where I bought the tires and they said it can't be the tires... there are no rub marks on them. so they dook the tires off, rotated them and balanced them.. I am still stuck with this grinding noise!

The noise goes faster as I am driving faster, and it's almost like someone yelling "HOOOO HOOOO" when I drive slow... what can it be? :ermm:

Re: Grinding noise from rear passanger side wheel

Thanks Mach 5!

I thought so too.. I might just replace it myself! Do you have any idea what it would cost?

Re: Grinding noise from rear passanger side wheel

Well if they are that cute let em cause as much grind as they want : Just had to ask because it's just something I notice with the elantras...with them being so light and all. The slightest bit of weight can make a big difference.

Re: Grinding noise from rear passanger side wheel

Put the car up on stands, remove the brake pads and rotate the offending wheel while grabbing onto the lower arm or the shock. If you feel any vibrations the bearing is toast. If you notice the brake pad is work, replace it and note wether the caliper piston reracts easily, also inspect the rotor, if it is heavily scored the rotor and the caliper are toasted. A clue to this one is the condition of the brakepad, if it is much thinner than the one on the opposite wheel it's pretty much gonna be your caliper.

Re: Grinding noise from rear passanger side wheel

I had the same grinding noise in my 89 Subaru XT and it was the bearings. I believe they charged me about $200 at a non-dealership place. But I've found that no matter what the problem is these days, mechanics don't let you out without charging at least $200 for something or other. Get if fixed dude, or else it WILL get worse. Mine got so bad that by the time I brought it in, they said I was lucky I didn't lose the wheel!
