Question about 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe
A scraping sound is more likely to be worn brake pads. The sound is an indication that very soon, there will be metal shoe to disc / drum contact. When this happens, the cost of the brake work can increase substantially. The parking brake makes use of the rear brake disk / drum and can also be the source for this noise.
Have the brakes inspected at once to lower the cost of the work if warranted. The stopping distance will increase slightly if the rear brakes have work out (the vast majority of braking needed to stop a vehicle is performed by the front brakes). The parking brake my not "hold" the vehicle if worn out.
It is also possible that while inspectimng the brakes that the service provider may be able to tell you the problem (if not brakes) during a road test or inspection.
I hope this helps & good luck!

I solved the problem by spraying WD40 into the front side of the seat support that was sticking. This support has a rubber closure to protect the mechanics of the seat. After spraying a generous amount of WD40, I waited about 5 minutes and tried the lever to fold the seat. It worked and still does.

Good Evening, those noises can be annoying and sometimes hard to find. However it sounds like you have a front hub assembly going bad. Usually the noise goes away when you veer one direction or the other. I have heard some transfer case noises but they usually do not go away on turns. Check those front hub-wheel bearing assemblies and see what you come up with. Hope this points you in the right direction.

check wiring on passengers side near the rear hatch speaker, the rear door speakers are run through them also. i had the same problem and it was a unplugged connector at that location
