Unhappy Pass. Rear Rubbing Noise??

Our '98 Legacy L Wagon, automatic, AWD, 2.2, ABS developed a rubbing noise from the right (passengers side) rear wheel area yesterday. I have tried using the E-brake a couple of time to see if it was hanging-up but no fix. We had the tires rotated about a week ago, the rear brakes were done by the dealer about 15,000 miles ago. We did drive it in some pretty bad conditions in Northern Mich., Canada, and Buffalo, NY fully loaded about two weeks ago. The car is has "500 miles" left on the Limited drivetrain warranty so if it's a rear wheel bearing or a covered part I want to get it addressed while it is still under warranty! Thanks

It does it all the time accelerating, decelrating. it is more pronounced at slow speeds but I think it is still there at high speed also. It does not clunck just rubs. I does not change with turns either but, it is a rear wheel?

Does the pitch change with the speed of the vehicle? And is it kind of like a grinding noise?

I had a wheel bearing go bad on my Legacy. Made a grinding like noise, and the pitch would change slightly with speed(got a little higher the faster I went). I had a mechanic find out what the noise was, and he used a screwdriver(I think) to probe my wheel bearing for sound while the wheel were moving(on a lift). So, you could try that. If you can get it on a lift, have someone put it in gear and hit the gas a little bit. Should be able to narrow it down then. Just remember, BE CAREFUL as the wheels will be turning, and they WON'T yield to you.

I was just driving the car and it made the noise while at a complete STOP??? That rules out bearings and brakes??? What the $#@% is IT!! I took off the wheel flushed the whole assembley with water. Checked the brakes, and the rear diff.??

Well, mine wasn't due to any kind of plain failure, it was caused by my front left wheel going through a concrete drainage ditch. Bent the wheel, control arm, steering linkage, and screwed the wheel bearing.

Default That will do it

Yep that will do it, I was wondering if you had a bad impact to the bearing like you discribed or it just failed. So, I guess the Legacy bearing is good your just took a hit. But, now it rubbs without the car moving????

I had a bearing go out as well. Of course myself beaing at fault as I took on a curb "hidden" under some snow. Also managed to break a speed sensor somehow and that caused the ABS to kick in everytime when braking to a stop(under 5mph). The bearing made a whawhawhawha sound that got faster/slower depending on speed. Took me a while to figure that one out.
