odd noise from rear of car

heres the deal... when i'm driving and i turn right at speed... like there has to be a slight body roll... anyways when i do this it sounds like the rear left brake is like rubbing metal to metal.... the brakes are maybe 3 or 4 months old... pads anyways rotors are maybe a year old now.... so whats the deal??

oh ya when this noise is occuring when i pull the parking brake or apply full brakes the noise goes away...

well you can wait untill it gets bad enough that the sound wont go away, then ull know forsure, it will turn into a constant humming sound... or you can jack up the corner of the car and see how well the tire spins, might be loose might not...wheel bearings are funny when they start to go, they can act differently under different loads, sometime not noticable sometimes very noticable...

do you have drumms in the rear or disk

sounds like bearing cuz you say it's under load. I'm 95% sure it's the bearing. Car parked, in gear - no parking brake, take the top of the tire in the rear (where the noise is) grab it and start shaking it like you lost your mind. If you discern any play, the bearing is a gonner.

Mine makes a humming as well... I changed both rear wheel bearings,,,, but my sound is due to the drum brake rust on ths inside of the drum. It's rubbing against the new shoe.
I brought it to TWO mechanics and they couldn't make the noise go away.

Does anyone have Buddah's shop info, I want to bring it up there to get it looked at, and FIXED!!!!!!!!!!!

God my car is ANNOYING. I finally get it back tomorrow!!!

no matter, I think it's dry, maybe not worn... so remove and re-pack with grease, put back.

My wheel berings were a pressed hub bering, you couldnt rebuild them, I had to buy a whole new hub and bearing assembly 200$ a peice..kick in the nads... 5 gens might be diff tho.. the bearing will start to have play in a few months if you leave it...then it will get really noisy

I gotta agree with bbarbulo on this one. It sounds like bearings to me as well. I had the same thing happen on my '99 Accord. The noise was on the driver's side and I would only hear it turning right. I had warranty to cover that though.
If the bearings have never been replaced, then they probably need it anyway. Also, if you are going to replace one, you might as well do the other at the same time. I don't think these bearings can be re-packed (at least I'm sure Honda doesn't recommend it) so you would have to get them with the hubs...
