    break scraping noise when cold

    Ive noticed a very slight metallic scraping noise coming from my rear left break, but only when i first start driving. After a while it goes away.

    I did a search on this and found some similar scraping stories, but none seemed to be only when first starting out driving. Anyone know what this could be? My car only has 16k miles.

    same here. after coming to a stop once or twice, problem solved. i noticed it after a rain when i'd only had the car for like 6 months.

    nice. thanks everyone, makes me feel better. It is probably the moisture build up, because I am in Seattle right now. It scrapes even if i am not applying the breaks. It is barely noticeable though and goes away pretty soon.
