    13' WRX Metalic Scraping/Rubbing Noise *Fixed*

    Hi All

    A few days after my little off road adventure I began noticing a metalic scraping/rubbing noise coming from the wheel. It was loud and almost sounded like when trains merge into different tracks and dragging a license plate on asphalt. Needless to say I upset, thinking that I fuxed the awd system. I took it to the dealership (Car has 7k miles on it...) they could not replicate the problem :/. A few days later it came back louder than ever. I noticed that it was coming from the front left wheel and I decided to look into it. Turns out there was a small rock wedged between the backing plate and rotor having a one man party. Took it out and it was smooth operation from then on
