I hear a loud scraping noise when I am slowing down. When I am going fast and apply the brakes, I hear no noise at all, but the slower I get, the louder the noise gets. It sounds like it is coming from the front driver side tire. It is not a very tinny noise like the above video states, but more of a loud grinding sound. Any ideas?

Answer

I recommend checking that rotor backing plate on the side by just sticking a screwdriver through the wheel and bending the backing plate away from the rotor. Has anyone handled the wheels as of late? Have you gone through any large snowbanks where snow could have been pushed up inside the wheels to bend the plate?
