General Maintenance & Repairs - Annoying Scraping Sound
06-22-2009, 11:25 PM
Ok, so every time it gets warm out, this sounds comes back. The whole winter it was gone, but now it came back. Its coming from my rear driver side wheel. It literally sounds like metal on metal scraping, almost identical to a cricket rubbing its legs together. I was riding on 16s last summer and it did this. I switched to 17s, and it kind of did it, but I didn't have the wheels long enough in the heat to really know. Right now I'm back to 16s that I am borrowing while i'm waiting for the tires for my prostars. The noise is extremely loud, and it gets even louder when I am braking. What could it be?

im doing the same,,, (what ISNT my car doing latley)
here is what i have done/or doing..
removed the tire, replaced lugs and spun rotor through the caliper
removed the caliper from the rotor (left rotor on) spun...
removed the rotor and spun,,,, not there
reinstalled rotor BACKWARDS with lugs and spun,,, not there
this leaves me with the Ebrake is scrapping the inside of my rotor hat,,i even adjusted to the tightest setting,, it still rubs
tonight when i get home, i will be either:
1. removeing the ebrake pads (ring) and running without it to see if i still make the noise...
2. applying some grease to teh inside of my rotor hat and reinstalling everything to see if i still make the noise...
hope that gives you some ideas with your issue

took it off and looked over the brakes. the rotors just seem shot, they are all rusted, and the back is almost worn away. when u jiggle the rotor back and forth u can hear the metal on metal. i ordered new rear pads and rotors for now, so hopefully that cures it

mine turned out to be the Ebrake ring,, made sure the ebrake was adjusted low enough to not scrape,, it did anyways (must be my rotors) so i put in a lil grease in the rotor hat,, that took care of it for now.
