Hi, there is a scraping sound coming from the front left of the car the moment the car is moving/rolling. It does not matter whether I am in gear or neutral (6 spd manual tranny), braking or moving or cornering. The sound is constantly there from the moment the car moves and is rotational like metal on metal scraping. It gets louder when I'm driving past walls or curbs where the sound will bounce back. I've changed wheel bearings, had my brakes checked, filed down to smoothen the pads which have a lot of life left and refitted back, dust shield pushed back and is not touching the rotors and was told my brakes were working fine and yet this sound persists. Upon jacking the car up and spinning the wheels freely by hand, the sound does not appear so I've narrowed it down to sound happens all the time regardless of speed or gear or braking but only when the car is rested on its weight. The rotational scraping sound quickens as speed of car increases. Turning car left or right makes no difference. I've run out of ideas - Please advise what it is!
have the same problem?
