Default Sounds like something is squeeling in my right rear wheel

I hear this high pitch "squeeling" most of the time when driving my '99 2.5rs with 65k miles. The frequency of the squeel is related to how fast I'm going. Sounds almost like there's a loud songbird in my right rear wheel.

Any idea what this might be? Thanks,

CB

Sounds like your brake pads need to be replaced. Give them an inspection and check how much you got left.

Would they make that sound when I am not on the brakes? It's not a brake squeel sound, more of a loud squeek, or high pitched whsitle kind of sound.

Question

Why is this here? Shouldn't this be in service and maintenance?

I too get the same loud squeeking noise when I drive my car. It started out coming from the front passenger side wheel, and after the tires were rotated it's now coming from the back. It has to be something with that one particular wheel.

You're speaking to a newbie here. I don't know what that is

Here's what happens. It only seems to squeak when I have at least one passenger in the car. It will start to squeak once the vehicle starts moving and it will taper off around 40 mph. Most people say it's break dust, but I don't think so. I clean the wheels regularly and I don't think it's break dust.

Of course you can't rule out the possibility of actually having a songbird stuck in your wheel, I'd bet wheel bearing. If it's a brake pad, it'll stop (or at least change) when you hit the brakes.

Mine produced more of a roar, but when I took it in (at 65k also) it was a bad left wheel bearing. Sit down...$700 bucks to fix if they have to swap the bearing and the race/axle assembly. DIY if you have the option.
