so been trying to figure out what the hell is going on, when ever im moving, there is a sound like the brakes are rubbing on roters. so took the wheel's off, and break pads are fine, i spin roters and i can hear the noise.

so i take the routers off, spin it, and the noise is still going on, but not as much. thought maybe something was dirty so i got some break cleaner and cleaned the piss out of them. still nada.

anything ealse to check? this is starting to piss me off.


also note, parking break is so lose wont even hold the car with the handel up, so thats not it.


i fail at english sorry. :(

possible a wheel bearing? just guessing. also if you maybe forgot to tighten your wheels down it can create a sound like that.

your english is fine. according to my hanes manual "metallica grating sound consistent with vehicle speed" can be caused by pronounced wear in the universal joint bearings in the driveshaft. check that out. jack up the rear end, put the tranny in neutral, and spin the wheels, listen under the drive shaft to see if thats where it may be coming from

I'd start by looking at the parking brake. Pull the disks off and check if the shoes for the parking brake are okay. You can also spin the hub at that point and see if the noise has gone away.
