Howzit Guys,

Short and sweet here we go:
VW 1996 2.6i T3(Microbus)

My Rear Left Wheel is making a Grinding almost a dragging sound. It started suddenly one morning. 
It can't be the bearings since I replaced it 12 months ago. I have a vague suspicion it must be the Rear Brakes or that they need a replacement but not entirely sure where to push my finger on the problem.

Appreciate!

Eric

Sounds like worn or dodgy brake shoes. Remove brake drum and have a look.
