Back right wheel squeaking?

10

Asked by Apr 28, 2015 at 01:07 PM about the 2006 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LTZ 4dr Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi, so when I am coasting (not touching the brakes at all) I sometimes hear a squeaking
noise from what sounds like my back right wheel. I can tell its the wheel because its speed
changes based on how fast I'm rolling, my question is whether or not this could be
anything major, or just a spot needing some WD-40. Sorry if it seems like a silly or
overnparanoid question, I just like to know! Thanks.

Somthings rubbing tear it apart check it over if it's dum brakes may need adjusted or new pads

Jack it up just off the ground and grab tire on top and bottom with you hands. Try to wiggle it. If there is movement, any play it might be wheel bearing

Be safe, Don't put you hand under the tire unless it's on a jack stand. If it's just on tire jack just push/pull back-and-forth from top

PS There are no silly or overnparanoid questions. That's why we are here

Like FordNut said, it could be the wheel baring but if it ain't that you might check the ball joint.
