    What is this noise?!?

    Ok, I have a 3 month old 2014 wrx and it started making a high-pitched grinding noise from the left-front wheel
    Kind of like the sound of resurfacing rotors. Whenever the wheel is moving it makes the noise. Whats worse is when
    I'm turning (+~45 degrees) it makes a clanking sound. The dealership is closed Sundays. I'll be stopping there first
    Thing in the morning. But does anyone have insight? Has this happens to anyone
    Else?

    No, but could be a sticky caliper or broken brake part. Does it follow wheel speed?

    The faster I go the louder it gets. Brake pedal is normal.

    Does it change when you touch the brakes?

    Sounds like it could be a piece of gravel stuck between your rotor and dust shield or rotor and brake pad.

    I was thinking that too, I just noticed that it gets MUCH quieter when I turn to the right +~30 degrees

    And it makes no difference if I hit the brakes.

    Its happened to me 4 times or so really scary noise. Im always afraid something is falling off the bottom of the car but I always look around and see all the gravel and I know it will eventually go away.

    This seems to be a reoccurring problem for our models wonder if the manufacturer will do anything about it because I'm sure that this will decrease brake life and it only happens to my front left aswell
