Question about Ford Escape
My 2006 Ford Escape keeps making noise almost like a scraping/skreaching noise only on the passenger rear. It just got new brakes and rotors the mechanic did get the noise to go away temporarily by pushing on the plate behind the rotor. How do I get rid of this noise cause sometimes it is really loud! And I can only notice it at low speeds

I have never had one issue in 50 years working on brakes
It is obvious that you got sloppy work,almost impossible
to do if you have any skills.

I replaced the rotors and pads on my right hand drive Blazer and had the same problem ,dont worry in a couple of days normal running the pressure goes away and you dont get the heat problem.
Its just the new pads bedding in.

use a large c-clamp to bottom out the caliper pistons remove the caliper bolts .slip out the pads and remove the caliper from the disk
hang the caliper from a coathanger wire to avoid damaging the brakeline after replacement of the pads;brake bleeding is not needed Rotors are held on to the axle like a wheel; with bolts

its more or less and backing plate you can drive without it it keeps brakes cool and gravell free > speaking as a tech you should replace it?

Hello, this would be an easy thing to diagnose. All you need to do is jack up the front of the car, so that you can turn the wheel and listen to it while you wiggle and turn it manually. You're also checking for any wobble and wear in the front end parts at the same time. Next, remove the wheel and inspect the rotor for any scratching to the shiny surface, which could determine where the problem is. If no problem there, rotate rotor and listen for the scratching sound and you will see where its coming from by looking at the brake pads which are visible when the wheel is off.
