Re: Strange sound from rear wheels when I break

Time to open it up and have a look. Noise is not good. Could be shoes worn down or someting come adrift , either way need to get in. Had any work done back there recently or does the handbrake feel different?

Re: Strange sound from rear wheels when I break

not noticed anything on the hand brake.

I would say it happens when slowing down from faster speeds, but that is only really a guess on my part, but that seems natural for breaks, given they have more work to do, when you start breaking at a faster speed.

Re: Strange sound from rear wheels when I break

if there were any sort of award for complete lack of information i think you would have just taken it.

from your initial post i was able to glean that there was a sound coming from the left rear wheel, with a little research based on the info provided i discovered
Sound: Vibrations transmitted through an elastic solid or a liquid or gas, with frequencies in the approximate range of 20 to 20,000 hertz, capable of being detected by human organs of hearing.

so this will be whats going on somewhere around that back wheel ?

fortunately you've added " it happens when slowing down from faster speeds" which sadly gives us no further information because, ultimately thats what brakes do.

please come back with something useful the model and age of car would help to begin with, also a description of the sound other than 'Strange' is it grinding, squealing, banging etc

seriously??? "I have a sound what is it?" thats all you've basically asked

I would say its a scrapping sound, but I cant be sure.

if your scrapping it ill give you a £100 for the old girl
where are you exactly?

the noise as said will mean a drum off to locate possiobly as it might be a delaminated shoe that could lock the wheel put you in a spin and cause you to be spoon fed by an old matron with halitosis for the next 20 years
dont go there get it looked at now

you have also not mentioned when the brakes were last serviced... if its been a long time, there is a good chance the shoes have seen better days... either way, like said, get the drum off and have a look.... or if unsure... get a garage to look.
