Noticed it this morning driving in the parking garage at work. Sounds like metal on metal. Might be coming from the left rear, but it could also be that I hear it through the open window on my side. Doesn't seem to get worse when I turn or go backwards. It sound like something is rubbing every time a wheel makes a complete turn, let's say every time it hits 12 o'clock.

The car has euro rotors, oem pads, PSS9 with GC RSMs. 8k miles.

I am taking it in tomorrow, but wanted to see what you guys think it could be. I recently put on new wheels and rechecked the torque on wheel bolts this morning.

Ideas?

Heard the noise when I first pulled out of the spot with engine off (downhill a little), and after that - nothing! WTH????<img src="http://members.roadfly.org/jkuper/S.JPG">

Im interested in the answer also; I have had this same noise one time. When I drove it home the noise went away and has not yet returned. I have 550 miles on the car. One post I saw somewhere suggested loose bolt in ebrake.

Ebrake bolt was a recall in the very early (first 3-4 months of production), but he says might be smth as simple as a little stone pebble stock between the rotor and the backing plate and takes a little time to come out. I am not sure if I'll actually make the trip to the dealer tomorrow or not, depending on how it behaves tonight.<img src="http://members.roadfly.org/jkuper/S.JPG">

I am having the same issue. I figured out that is was the ebrake by driving around with ebrake on for 30 secs. Noise went away but it comes back after a while.

There is definitely a recall on the ebrake for the early cars but mine is a 2003. I'm going in on Monday to see what happens.
