Rear driver side tire area burning smell

THERE IS A BURNING SMELL COMING FROM MY REAR DRIVERS SIDE TIRE AREA? NOT SURE IF MY REAR BRAKE IS STICKING OR POSSIBLY THE WHEEL BEARING IS GOING OUT??? HAVENT SEEN ANY SMOKE YET BUT IT STINKS ENOUGH I CAN SMELL IT IN THE CAR WHILE DRIVING. HOW CAN I GO ABOUT FIGURING THIS OUT OR HAS SOMEONE HAD A SIMILIAR PROBLEM??

If it's the brakes sticking put your hand on the wheel. (caution it will burn you!) I'd use a glove or rag.

If that is indeed what's going on buy new guide pins and grease or replace with a new caliper.

Most likely the caliper sticking but easy enough to check, pull your tire off and turn the rear wheel. Should be able to tell pretty easy. You may end up wanting to replace the whole caliper but up to you.

^ not always, when mines was sticking it would be after the brakes where warm. When cold it spun freely.
