scraping noise

My car has recently started to make a scraping noise as though something metal is dragging underneath but there is nothing there. Stops when I stop the car.

Any ideas? brake issues?
I've had the front pads and disks done.

A stone between the splash guard and disk is not unheard of causing scraping noises.

as above or could be a seized caliper dragging the pads on the disc.

Jack the car and spin the wheels. That will identify/eliminate which wheel is causing the noise (if any). As you have had the fronts 'done', start at the back.

Honda brake backing plates (splash guards) are quite tight fitting and tiny pieces of stone easily get trapped (happened to me three times in my CRZ). Try stop-starting going forward and then reverse for short distances to try and dislodge the stone. Failing that, take wheel off and wiggle the metal plate behind brakes to see if that frees the stone.


If it is a sticky caliper, the alloy will be very hot to touch after a drive (noticeably hotter than the other alloys) as the brake is effectively being constantly applied. Sticky caliper may also cause steering to drag a little.

Would it be the rear pad wear indicators? I just changed mine, 25,000 miles. The outside pads had loads of material left on them - the inside that I couldn't see were worn down badly.
