Stiff to rotate rear wheel, not brake related
So had noise from rear when driving. Thought I had a handbrake / brake fault on my disco 4.
Stripped it down ready to replace or adjust handbrake and fit new rotor and pads, but found the hub was stiff to turn even with no brake parts attached. The rear is jacked up and its in neutral. If i refit just the wheel and try to spin it I only get
Less than half a turn compared to well over a full revolution on osr.
So only stiff on the near side. Any thoughts or pointers appreciated.
When you say with no brake parts, are you just referring to pads on the disk or have you removed the disk as well? On the rears there are a set of shoes that operate the handbrake like a conventional drum brake inside the rear disk.
Sorry if you already knew this but as its your first post, you may not be aware.
Given you say the OSR turns OK compared with the NSR, I would consider it more likely to be the bearing or CV rather than the Diff.

Depending on how it's jacked up etc, this may sound daft, but are you spinning the opposite side wheel via the diff which still has brakes fittedHeaven doesn't want me, and hell is afraid I'll take over.
