I have a 94' Nissan Sentra. The problem for this car is when I drive between 1-25mph, the rear left tire makes squeaking sound like a mouse. When drive above 25mph, the sound seem to be miniumize or gone. The sound is very annoying. Does anybody know what might be the problem? I think there might be a metal bended or something. Thanks in advance!

    Have your brake pads checked would be my first guess...does the noise go away the instant the brakes are very lightly applied?

    I would check the rear brake linings and also the rear wheel bearing (or hub whichever it has). One of these two things are most likely your problem.

    I have all four brake pads inspected during the my car's inspection a week ago, they are all good. I guess there's one thing that could cause the noise is the wheel bearing. Doesn't anyone have other sugguestions that I should look into for this problem? Thanks for the advise guys!

    I wasn't thinking the pads exactly, but the clips that hold them...they can touch the rotor. Same with drum brakes, the shoes or some part of the e-brake can make contact. So I'd look for marks on the hub or rotor.

    Also, this car can be run on a lift and the noise better located.

    Bearings usually don't squeek, but I guess they could.
