Does the noise stop when you step on the brakes? Or get louder?
Does the noise go away when you go around a sharp right hand turn while on the throttle?

Hey peeps I have a question. I have been hearing a noise everytime I drive my car but when at idle it doesn't make the noise. It is like metal scrapping or something.
I had my brother drive it past me and it sounded like it was coming from my passenger side front tire.
I think it is my brakes or something because it started when I had to slam on my brakes one day really hard.
Would anyone have any suggestions?
Have you checked your pads yet? Take a peek, or even quicker, make sure the rotors are cool and run your finger across them. If you feel a groove, your pad is shot and you've just bought a new rotor.
If after a drive, you feel the center of the rim and it is hot to the touch, you've got a bad bearing.
In both cases, do not drive the car any further.

When I hit the brakes it still makes the noise until I come to a complete stop.
I will try both of those methods and see if that works. If I have a bad bearing do you know how much that will run me to fix?
Could it be the TCT?

Thanks for all the responses. It was the pads they were completely worn down. God all that noise just for pads but it is a good thing because it let me know they were gone.
Thanks again peeps.
Nice when the fix is something quick and easy, eh!
I'll apologize for using your thread for a little off-topic ... how exactly does one start a new thread here? I've done the usual procedure 10 to 12 times now, same thread start, but the forum website times out each time, losing it each time ... help.
