    Question Light thumping noise from right rear wheel while breaking

    Hi guys,

    my new 03 Odyssey started to have light thumping noise whenever I press the brake pedal. I noticed the noise is coming from the right rear wheel and it is a dull, pulsating noise. It is faster when I pressed the brake slightly harder at high speeds, while at low speeds the frequency of the thumping noise is slower. I suspect that:

    1. I got a bad wheel bearing
    2. Something wrong with the brake
    3. Could be realted to ABS operation on the rear wheel.

    What do you think? which one is more likely?

    Thanks very much!

    It may actually be the gas tank. Because of the magic seat, the Odyssey has to have a wide, flat gas tank. When tossed around, the gas tends to "slap" the walls of the tank and it makes the sound you describe. And braking sets it in motion.

    Hopefully this answers your question.

    Might be a bad belt in the tire, try swapping side-to-side.

    I agree with the bad belt in tire suggestion. I had the same problem (at least the way you described it sounds like the problem I had) and I had the tires replaced and it seems to have been fixed.
