    Angry Intermittent Friction Noise

    I replaced my rotors and brake pads on 4 tires, at first there were no noise, but after a month I hear a intermittent friction noise, when I am stopping or turning at low speed ,I cant really tell where is coming from, I only hear it with windows down and no music very
    weak .I can’t stand noises in my car. Any ideas what could be . Thanks in Advance

    Check your rims if they are factory they may be peeling on the chrome
    My 03s factory rims is doing this I had tore the peeling parts off back of this but it is back as I noticed it yesterday while I was at the dealer to get my shocks replaced

    Re: Intermittent Friction Noise

    Can you describe the noise more, high pitched squeal, vibration type sound?? Did you use slotted or smooth rotors? The metal clips at the end of the pad can get out of place during pad install and they can rub the edge of the rotor.

    Re: Intermittent Friction Noise

    I got no vibrations , the rotors are smooth, its like something is touching the rim or rotor, but I cant find what it is, the rims are basically new, so nothing is
    peeling of the chrome. I probably have to lift the car and go one by one of the tires to see if I can find something.
