I have a squeal-like noise in the wheel area of my car at times. It's almost like metal on metal. What is this?
Do you

It sounds like the brake sensor. Have you checked the brakes?

I had the wheel off and checked and they saw nothing wrong with the brakes, wheels, or anything. Is there anotheproblem that could be the reason? Appreciate your help!

Make sure the backing plate isn't rusted or bent and touching the rotor.
