I have had several front wheel drive cars in my time and yet I dont know the answer to this question. What does a bad rear wheel bearing sound like in a front wheel drive car? I have a noise that I am trying to troubleshoot and its hard to pin down. The spousal unit swears its coming from the rear of the car. Its a clunk clunk clunk sound thats only there on moderate brake pressure. With no brake pressure its as quiet as can be. Its definetly linked to the speed of the wheel. The car is a 90 coupe deville with disc on the front and drums in the back. I took the drums off tonight but havent noticed anything out of the ordinary other than a small leak on a master cylinder that I didnt know I had. Any and all ideas would be appreciated! Thanks!
