Knocking noise at rear related to road speed?
Yesterday morning I was driving along and heard a clunking noise, speed related at the rear of the car, sounded like a big stone stuck in the tyre tread, but a little bassier.
Within half a mile this turned into ferocious screeching of metal on metal and I had to pull over as I though the exhaust was on the ground. It wasnt. I only had a mile to go and continued one with the world looking at me.
Jacked the car up and turning the LR wheel the noise was repeated. I took off the wheel and looked for a stone stuck and I pushed the disc guard back. Wheel back on and metal on metal noise was gone. Quick drive confirmed that noise has gone.
However, the speed related noise is still there. Kind of like a clunking which is speed related. Worse turning left than right.
