'04 wheel/brake/rotor noise. pls help
a week ago i noticed a "grinding and rubbing type" noise (fairly loud) that happens mostly when I begin to accelerate the car from a complete stop or slow down and without pressing brake. the noise disappears when car reaches around 30 mph most times and sometimes returns (but not always) after a complete stop. I purchased new rotors and brake pads for all wheels a year ago this month. Seems to be coming from rear pass. side wheel. Any ideas what this could be? My first guess would be the brake pad wearing down & rubbing against rotor but having just got the pads less than a year ago, i hope that wouldn't be it. what else could it be? caliper? brake shoes? thx.
p.s. i have an audio file of it recorded. is there a way to upload audio on the boards?
