    Hello all , this is my first post and its a please help one .I have recently started to get a metallic rubbing noise from my rear drivers side wheel , i removed the wheel and had a visual on it and there is plenty of meat left on the pad.The noise is at best only noticable on slow speeds and come's and go depending on whether ive hit a speed bump or not ....I was wondering any ideas before i dive into the unknown.
    cheers

    Just wondering if you have a worn output shaft bearing. Also, are you able to check if your parking pads are not binding?
