Re: uber loud metalic scratching sound at slow speeds?

Did you just recently purchase this car from a garage ? If so, why not phone them and tell them you're not driving it until they have a look. Or have the garage that replaced the pads do the same.

I've seen the odd car have the splash guard at the back of the disc bent slightly while replacing the pads so that it comes into contact with the disc. This can make the noise you're describing. It's an easy fix - just bend the guard far enough away so it doesn't touch the disc, but it might mean you have to remove the wheels to gain access.


I think I have CDO. It's like OCD, but with ALL THE LETTERS IN THE RIGHT ORDER
