'02 Hyundai Elantra brake drum clicking noise Sign In

02 Hyundai Elantra has rhythmic clicking sound from the rear drums that corresponds with wheel speed. replaced pads about a year ago still clicked. Replaced drums and pads last week, sounded fine for a few miles then clicking back full force. Touch the brakes lightly no sound, as pressure added it gets louder, both wheels. It's driving me crazy, any help greatly appreciated.

Did you machine the drums? Was there any recent repair work done to the brake system prior to the clicking noise?

Didn't machine drums, just got new ones. No other brake repairs.

When you typed pads, do you mean front brake pads or are you meaning shoes instead of pads? Do you feel any brake pulsations in the brake pedal or steering wheel when applying the brakes at highway speeds?

I think OP means shoes? No matter, a wild arse guess that could elude easy discovery might be a hubcap if used on this car! If, if, if removing them makes the noise go away see what holds them on + where like a wire loop and clean them up or paint just that area then put them on another wheel.

Even less likely but happens. If a steel wheel with spot welds look for evidence of those not holding. Wheels do flex some with assorted forces on them,

Sorry, Yes I meant brake shoes. No pulsations. It's when the brakes are applied and maybe more of a thunk, people outside the car stare like "why the hell your brakes so noisy".
Hub caps are little plastic things held on by the lug nuts.
There was a little pulsation on braking but not since replacing drums and shoes.
Have I said that I hate this car-my wife bought it.

?? It quit it for a while when new shoes and drums were done so I suggest going back and look at the brakes and hardware in general or anything out of ordinary. Consider new brake hardware if not done with the rears just because. Not usually very expensive and if some dinky something breaks it can ruin the brakes,

Tom, I did "spring" for the new hardware. The only old parts are self adjusters and wheel cylinders.

OK - But for the sake of just looking for something that isn't right it should still be ruled out. With drum off you could just nudge the parts around and see if something isn't right maybe?

A noise that changes with using or not using brakes is worth investigating for sure. Spin the bearing while there too. It isn't normal so something is going on,

Mr. Greenleaf, I checked it all over and took it out to see what happens when I use the emergency brake. It made the same noise but then faded away as I applied more pressure. Now the noise has stopped! I can't believe it! I'm not sure why that solved it but it did. Thanks for time and expertise. I love CarJunky.

NEVER MIND. IT'S STILL MAKING THE NOISE :(
