Hi from the Rock!

Got a 2014 Patriot that I've had for just over a year. I'm getting a scraping sound from the passenger side right rear wheel. The sound is more noticeable when driving at slower speeds and becomes less noticeable at higher speeds.

Need help!

Thanks in advance.

I've checked the pads and rotors. Don't seem to be the problem. Just wondering if it might be a rear driveshaft/cv joint problem.

driveshaft problems tend to get louder/more noticeable at higher speeds
2014, check RDU, rear differential fluid
see if you can spot any staining/leakage
or can also be bearing,
can you jack that tire and see if theres any play in it?

The sound has become constant at all speeds now. I jacked up the jeep and grabbed the tire from the top and bottom. There was no play so I think the bearing/hub is not the problem.
