Default metal on metal noise from wheel

Hi Guys,
My 2010 WH has recently started making a nasty metal on metal noise. Sounds like it's coming from the drivers side wheel area. Makes it at all speeds. E.g. low speed (e.g no accelerator crawling out of the driveway and high speed on the freeway) but not all the time. Comes and goes. It sounds a bit like a train on train tracks.

Was thinking maybe an indicator that my brake pads need changing? I'll take the car in to the mechanics next week as it is coming up to due for a service, just curious if anyone else has experienced this and what it was?

Cheers,
Dave

^ This sounds like a possible culprit. If your pads were worn you would get the noise when you braked only or it would be all the time.

A rock would cause the noise at any speed but it could be bounced around/heated into and out of a scraping position. Maybe you can have a quick look yourself. Can check for the rock itself or you can just have a look to see if you notice any scrape marks that would fit the bill. Let us know how it plays out!

Thanks guys. No evidence of any rock - rotors looked OK both sides. It's at the mechanic now so I've asked him to check it out.

I had a similar symptom in my KL that took a while to pinpoint - where the axle connected to the rear diff there’s a metal cap and rubber seal that rotates with the axle. The cap and seal weren’t seated properly - with the car on a hoist and wheels turning slowly, you could see the cap and seal ‘wobble’ as the axle rotated - and with each rotation there was a metal on metal squeak - sounded just like a brake noise.

Bump to see if they ever found out what it was...
