Default rear wheel noise on 2003 DS

I am new to the forum and to golf carts. We have a 2003 CC DS. It makes a noise at the driver's side rear wheel that is only heard when moving very slowly. I pulled the wheel and hub thinking that the rear brakes were dragging on the hub. That's what it sounds like. It was not rubbing. When I rotate the axle, I feel it turn easily and then it gets harder and I can hear a faint noise when it gets tighter. The opposite side doesn't do this. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Are there bearings where the hub enters the axle tube?
Thanks Brian

Did the pads look like they were in good shape? Much pad left?

Yes the pads looked good. It didn't look like the brakes were dragging. it feels like that but it doesn't look like it.

Depends on your mechanical ability . . need a good set of snap ring pliers . . after removing wheel and brake drum, there is a snap ring that needs to be removed to pull the axle to get to bearing . . see exploded parts view on page 14-2 here:

and see page 6-2 here for retaining clip location:

Any chance you may still have this DIY info? It appears the links are bad now. I am having the same problem on my '04 DS
