2015 Jeep Patriot | Squeaking/Chirping Sound


Topic starter

I recently had the rear hubs replaced by a mobile mechanic on my Patriot after the sensors wore out. Now when traveling at low speeds I hear a squeaking/chirping sound. Turning and braking don't appear to effect it. I think it's coming from the back passenger side. I took it by a shop, but they weren't able to identify the problem and the mobile mechanic has ghosted me. Looking online tells me it might be the hub but I'm not sure. I'm new to vehicle repairs so I'm a bit stuck. Any advice? Thank you in advance.

Well there's so many things that can be minorly screwed up replacing the hubs you could have bent the break backing metal then that will squeak rub a little bit have a another mechanic a third one look at it and see if it's that and road test and see if you can hear the noise that's the problem with Mobile mechanics the guys a lot of guys are just cowboys and who knows what parts they're using they could be Chinese parts and just make noise cuz they're cheaper made
