rubbing sound from rear wheel

98 camry. about 90K miles. I've had this rubbing sound from the right rear wheel for a few month especially louder when braking and turning to the right. I took it to a shop. They cleaned the rear brake but the noise remained. They said the drum may have some rust spot and I could replace the rear drum when I come in for the timing belt next time.

It doesn't affect my driving at all so I'm not really planning on fixing it. But I'm just curious what you experts of camrys' have in mind.

Maybe your parking brake is stuck...but that would be more of a grinding noise. Same with stuck brakes.

How's the inside of your tire look?

@Chris Crash They actually adjusted the parking brake. I'll take a look at the inside of the tire tomorrow.

Maybe it's the plastic liner in the wheel well that's not properly secured?

touch the wheel with hand after driving and see if it gets excessively hot compared to other rear. if yes then the brake is dragging, if no then it might be something else.

I would definetly check the bearing if there isn't anything wrong with the rear brakes. When they cleaned the rear brakes they would have turned the drum to see if there was any rubbing, and then they would have at least test drove it for a bit to see and then recheck to see if the brakes were rubbing or binding. If indeed the brakes are fine, I would then look into the rear wheel bearing. I hope that isn't the case because those wheel bearings are quite expensive.

Should you need a new rear wheel bearing, the MSRP on that is $346.38. I sell Genuine Toyota OEM parts to TN members for 30% off MSRP which would bring it to $242.47 plus ACTUAL SHIPPING COSTS, and $1.00 - $2.00 for materials, etc. I do not over inflate shipping or base it off a sale price, I weigh it, and then tell you what it will cost.

If you need any other information, have any questions, or want to double check your local dealer on something, need TSBs, whatever, let me know. I am not in here just to make a parts sale. I am usually in here every day and you can check my posts, and see that I am truly in here to assist the TN members.

Good luck and I hope this information serves you well.

@fenixus
The temperature doesn't feel too hot and they're even on both wheels.
@projektvertx
No loose things as far as I can see .
@AliRazoR
It only happens when I step on the brake (very lightly, it doesn't make the sound, but above medium, the harder I brake, the louder the noise.). So I was thinking it's more brake-related other than the bearing.

i want to ask something, Do you have rear BRAKE DISC?if yes,i don't know.

IF NO; there is problem with brake shoe (or brake pad) inside the DRUM

@AliRazoR, I do have a drum brake.
@Chris Crash, could be. One more piece of information is that it tends to be more severe after heavy braking and after a while it lessens.

i use to have a similar problem. mine sounding like metal scraping. turned out that the drum was rusty enough that sometimes the lip of the drum would scrape the dust shield. it drove me nuts for a while because it would do it one day while i was driving, but not every day. i think some days the heat from braking would expand the drum .001" and then it would contact the dust shield. i ground down the edge of the drum and the sound never came back.

if it sounds more like a train rolling down the track with a rotating pattern sound, then its more likely a bad bearing.

So projektvertx took a look at the rear drum brakeme. The hole for the rubber plug doesn't quite line up with the one on the rusty outer cover. So we've decide that it's most likely inside the brake. Especially he's ruled out bearing problem. So we'll probably go to the junkyard later (have to wait until after next week) and do something to the rear brake. What I have in mind is to move the front brakes to the rear (ie. drum to disc upgrade in the rear) and twin-piston upgrade in the front. (Thereby satisfying the disputed earlier lock-up at the front principle.) But would this make a real difference? Another plan is just to change the rear drum brakes.

Glad you were able to find it.
changing the rear drum to brake disk make not a lot difference,but changing the front disk to double piston make a big difference
