So over the past 7 years of owning this car, every now and then when I turned right I would hear this horrible metal on metal grinding. Then it'd go away. Then it'd come back. Over the spring/summer it was constant, I knew it wasn't anything huge, so I never checked it... along with the fact that I was terrified I was going to find a torn boot on the halfshaft or something expensive like that. Last weekend my friend and I took the wheel off and found out it was the guard plate on the back of my front driver side rotor that was touching the rotor itself everynow and then. We pushed it back and away from the rotor, and it seems to have helped. I just have a question, would it be wise to rip that thing off of there? or could that not be such a wise idea?
