2001 Chevy Tahoe V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 170, 00 miles
There is a hot rubber smell near the rear passenger side tire after even short trips. The rotor felt warm so assuming it was faulty caliper I replaced the calipers and pads. The smell is still there. This time I took off the rotors, and the inside was filled with black dust (I assume from the pads) and a small amount of grease. The parking break had clearly been rubbing, and was worn all the way through on one side. Would this be what was producing the hot rubber smell, or is it bad bearings? Before removing the wheel I tried to wiggle it top to bottom and side to side to check the bearing but there was no movement. I've included a picture.
have the same problem?
