My car recently made this Weird Metal Grinding Noise While Driving. The noise is very noticable when i'm going above 40mph. It sounds like it's coming from the rear driver side wheel. Could it be that my pads are wearing out? rotor? Note: i've changed my brake pads that was purchased at an Acura dealership and had my rotor resurfaced in the front 2 months ago. The noise is pretty loud above 40mph so i can't tell if it's the front or back but i'm guessing it's the back becasue i had the front replaced 2 months ago. I have my windows up because it's embarassing hearing that awful noise while driving with the windows down. Any suggestions? HELP!!!
Not sure if it is the same thing you heard but my 04 model was making a metallic grinding noise in its first year of life. Turns out it was the wheel bearing and it was replaced under warranty and the sound went away. Good luck!
this has never happened to my TSX, but something eerily similar would happen on my last car, 98 civic ex. it almost sounded like a pebble or rock got lodged between the pad and rotor... but i never saw any damage to the surface of the rotor and had recently had a brake job. it was the most unnerving, metal on metal grinding sound that would come and go. the sound would go away when i applied the brakes too. it was embarrassing when it did happen!
