    metal scraping when turning

    coming out the left front wheel. happens when the wheel is/almost is turned all the way to the right. sounds like a hubcap rolling down the street, but i cant find any source (ie no scrape marks or damage). i havent taken the wheel off yet, but i'll be rotating the tires today....any ideas?

    my foot isnt even on the pedal. i thought maybe the brakes, but then it should do it all the time not just when i turn to the extreme right. generally when the pads are grinding, youll feel it through the pedal but i dont feel anything at all, so im lost
    if it helps, it didnt start until we had to remove the transaxles to put a new clutch in. and its only the drivers side.

    never got to rotate the tires. changed the oil, installed my new gtspec gen2 ladder bar and reinstalled my helix tmic after i discovered a ripped boost line was causing the shuddering/rich problems i was experiencing and not the tmic itself.

    i was just saying cuz i had the same problem, without hitting the pedal, i was hearing a loud screaching sound from the front left wheel. it ended up being a brake issue.
    hope you get whatever it is resolved.

    Try greasing the steering stops... Sometimes they get dry and noisy at full lock

    My fiance had this problem with her Civic. It turned out to be a bent dust cover on the inner side of the brake rotor. There is a piece of sheet metal back there designed to keep grit out of the brakes and brake dust off the engine and tranny. Her's got bent somehow and when the wheel was turned all the way, some flexing was occuring and causing the rotor to scrape on the cover. Like others have said, you'll need to take the wheel off and inspect the brakes. Check to see if that cover is really really close at any point, and check your brakes in general.
