VOLKSWAGEN CABRIOLET WHEEL PROBLEM

1997 Volkswagen Cabriolet • 159,000 miles

I had the rear brake wheel cylinders replaced and now the car is very loud in the back. Sounds like I have big tires on it.

Check the wheel bearing adjustment. Could be too loose!

I had wheel bearing adjustment tightened and still loud in the back end.

Watch my video on noisy wheel bearing... you might have to turn the volume up a bit.

If one side is noisier than the other, then that bearing (2 actually) need to be replaced.

Take it to a shop. I can't hear the noise or test drive the car.

It was a logical guess that the bearing was noisy.

Something was not done correctly then.
