Knocking sound

May 26, 2006 2:49pm CST
When (hard or soft) braking a knocking sound from the right rear wheel happens every now and then. I have checked the brakes and hardware they are in good working condition.

Hi SouthBeach, Had I been part of this discussion five years ago I would have advised you get your automobile checked by a mechanic, as I would not have advised that you take a chance and experimented as if you are not a mechanic you would be jeopardizing the cars functioning mechanism. I do hope you did get this resolved. Be well.

There are 2 possibilities, check your brakelining or you transmission (including transmission support).

Might be a bearing or could even be an axle problem. Might just be a stone in the wheel. Might want to have a mechanic take it for a ride.

Might be an issue with your brake pads. When the pads start to get worn, they make noises

Did you check to see if the rear exhaust mounting is ok? This can sometimes knock around - sounding as if it is the rear wheel.
