PASSENGER SIDE REAR NOISE

2005 Honda Accord

Noises problem
2005 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 55000 miles

my honda is making a strange noise from the rear passenger side. It is more noticeable with the rear passenger window down and it makes a metalic sound kind of like a marble rolling around in a coffee can. Any idea of what this could be. Would like some kind of idea before I take it somewhere

Does the sound increase when the brakes are applied? How about increasing when you make a corner?

I would think that a few things come to mind quickly to check. First is the brakes pads for wear. Second, look at the splash guard on the inside that protects the brakes as it might be bent in and rubbing. Finally, you might have a rear bearing that is going out.
