Chirping sound from right rear wheel

03-09-2008, 05:41 PM
I have a chirping sound that I believe is coming from the right rear wheel of my 1998 Venture. The noise is intermittent and stops when I apply the brakes. It happens randomly and is not affected by turns. Also, I do not hear it when I accelerate but I am not sure whether the noise is not present or my engine noise just drowns it out. Any ideas?

Why does the noise stop when I apply the brakes. And why would it make noise/chirp when the brakes are not engaged.

Thank you

the indicator on the brake pad rubs against brake rotor when the pads get worn. when you apply the brakes the indicator gets push away from rotor

We have the same noise on our 99 Venture. I tried alot of things. I recently think the noise is being generated by the tailpipe. Try wiggling yours and see if it makes a similar noise. I think the rubber hangers are worn out allowing excessive movement.

The Chirp is gone! I had my tires rotated today and the mechanic said brakes everything looked fine. However, the spare tire was flat and loose. He felt that the chirping was coming from the spare moving around. I don't know if that was the reason, but it sounds reasonable. Anyway, I'm just happy to be driving without the noise. Thanks to everyone for their help.

'98 should have shoes on the back and the chirp was probably the spare moving with it being flat and loose.
