    Red face scratching noise

    basicly i hear a metal to metal scratching noise when i drive and it;s all the time, not upon braking.. .so I know it's not the wear sensors, like most of you may have thought upon reading this.... i have had people drive next to me and we have narrowed it down to the passenger rear wheel...ti sounds like a rock or something is stuck on the backing plate and touching the rotor,,,sound occurrs after 20mph and 40mph if i drive any faster the sound goes brakes are fine....i can stop perfect,,,just annoyed at this mystery noise..tomorrow i am goign to take off the wheel and inspect and look for signs of abrasion and suchness...althouh my street that i live on was repaved and for about 4 days i had to drive on loose gravel...i drove slow over it though i think some gravel/tar may be causing this headache

    any comments appreciated..i'll let ya know what 'i find

    Debris causing the noise would be a simple explanation and fix; a wheel bearing is another possibility but not likely at this point.
    The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry. Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms, 1929
