Odd noises from brakes


#1

Well, I have a 2011 Ford Escape. Recently, the car has been making two noises coming from the right rear drum brake.

I can only hear it going 5 mph or lower, possibly from road noise.

First noise: It sounds like someone is rubbing wet rubber on a wood floor (weird analogy). Not a grinding sound like a bad pad, but more of a hard rubbing sound.

Second noise: Whenever the car is at 5 MPH or lower and starts to decelerate, there is a high-pitched very small whistle coming from the same area. The pitch decreases as the speed does.

Got the brakes checked, no issues.

Sounds like an iffy bearing to me. Have your dealer check into it. This should be under warranty.
