SV: [T3] Rear Wheel Noise, question?


Hi Tom!
I had a customized bug once, equipped with rear brakes from a T3. After some
time I also got a mysterious squeaking noise from one rear wheel (something
like "ikka-ikka-ikka...") after a few miles driving. It was very confusing,
but at last the problem was identified to worn splines inside the brake drum
hub. Regardless that the nut was tightened correctly, after some time
driving the drum started to wiggle on the axle tap, rubbing against the
washer, causing that squeking noise! Try replace the drum hub!

Just 2 c...
