Q: I have a Squeaking /squeal coming from rear passenger side tire what is it? on 2002 Ford Explorer

The tire has some play but not alot, when i took the tire off it looked to me that the rotor was loose and pressing agianst the brake pads. The noise sounds like the break squealer. The only time i notice it is at very slow speeds

Remove the caliper and inspect the brake pads to make sure the squeeler or brake shims are properly located. I think the disc is kept firmly in place by the lug nuts put them on and see if the disc is now "locked in place". Make sure the dust shield in the back of the disc is not damaged and rubbing. Could be a bad wheel bearing or even emergency brake shoes return springs.
