Funny noise from rear of car

Asked by Sep 19, 2016 at 05:41 PM about the 2002 Toyota Camry XLE V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2002 Camry has a strange sound, like oooooooo coming from the rear of the
car occasionally after maybe 20 minutes of driving, particularly at highway
speeds.  The noise stops when the brakes are applied but starts again as
soon as the brake pedal is released.

That could be a hub bearing getting ready to go out, when you apply the brakes it pulls the hub back to center and the sound stops.

It's amazing these stand up as well as they do, even looking at one in real life it just doesn't look that sturdy.
