Grinding Noise From Rotors/Pads/Parking Brake
I have a 2002 screw and over the last two weeks the rear of the truck has started to make this clicking noise. And to make it worse, it has started to make a squeaking noise. (Not a rubber squeaking noise though.)
So today I took off the rear tires, and removed both the calipers, to remove any drag by them on the rotors. I tried to turn the rotor/axle, and I found it to be very stiff to turn, and while doing it, it makes a grinding noise. (I could not recreate the clicking/squeaking.)
The only thing I can think it might be is the rotor grinding on something, or the parking brake grinding. (And no, the parking brake is not on, I checked that.)
Later on today I am going to remove the whole rotor assembly and see if I can find out what is making this noise.
If anyone has had this problem before or could maybe point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.
