I have a 2007 Rav4 with 10K miles on it.
The car has developed a noise and I am wondering if anyone else has had this issue.
The noise started out to be a faint "scraping" sound. I thought I was dragging the tailpipe on the asphalt. I looked underneath (not lifted) .
There is nothing hanging down . The noise comes and goes , varies in loudness. It now has developed a "screeching " type noise that lasts about 10 seconds. This comes and goes as well.
These sounds are heard (comes and goes)during driving or idling.
The things these noises are NOT associated with are:
no particular gear other than drive..have noticed the scraping sound subtly present during reverse (backing out of driveway.
Location of sound-underneath, sounds like just to the rear of driver seat or towards the back of car.
Any thoughts appreciated.
Thanks for the reply. You hit the nail on the head. It was a rock that was caught in the brake rotor shield. :surprise: PHEW!
Our roads are atrocious and full of potholes. My car sounds so sweet now. It is amazing what noises it was making from something that simple.
