2004 Toyota Sienna 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 69000 miles
The left rear brake makes a low pitch scraping noise only when braking that I hear only at low speed, and it seems to be only once per wheel revolution. The sound is harsher and louder right after a rain, then quiets down, but is still present all the time. The dealer has checked and adjusted the rear brakes at two different service appts; and an independent brake shop has checked the issue. They all say there nothing wrong and the brake pads have many miles of wear remaining. My light maintenance mechanic thinks it is a slightly warped rotor, and I shouldn't worry about it, that it is not a safety issue. However, this continuing scraping sound is very irritating. How can it be fixed?
