I have a 1988 Nova, four-wheel disc.


I have a 1988 Nova, four-wheel disc. Sometimes, not all the time, I hear what sounds like metal rubbing, but only when turning. It appears to emit from the rear. First time I hear it, I have the brakes checked and have been told all is fine. This is not a every-day occurrence.
If what you have found is true, I would check to see if there is rust or another other type of foreign material around the rotor or caliper. There also could a shield or other component that might be slightly bent that might be causing the problem.
