Re: [DML] Rear Wheel Squeak

Bearings make a low-frequency rumble, louder as the bearing 
deteriorates.  Wheel bearings on the Delorean are sealed.  You can't 
pack them.  High frequencies come from something rubbing.  If the noise 
disappears when you put on the brakes, it has to do with the brakes.  If 
it disappears when you take the wheel off, look for something contacing 
the disc or hub on the inside.  If a front wheel is noisy, check to see 
that the inner and outer axle nuts are tight and that the spacer behind 
the bearing is whole.  I've seen loose calipers cause a noise like this. 
  Just put the wheel in the air and spin it.  Keep looking and suspect 
everything.  If the rear wheel won't make the noise, go to the front. 
It's hard to tell exactly where a noise is coming from as you go down 
the road.
