Rotor noise when driving

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

SOURCE: Horrible scraping/scratching noise coming from wheel

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.

My 2009 ford escape will not unlock sometimes and it makes a growling noise when driving.

the central locking works from a pump that mounted in rear side panel
your problem is possibly an air leak so the pump keeps running causing the noise while driving

How to change broken wheel stud on 2007 ford escape

Some just pound out of the rotor. Take wheel off and then see if you cant drive out broken stud with a hammer. Usually this is how it's done and then you can drive a new one in the back side.

I have two issues with my Ford Escape. First, the airbag light will blink for a while, then just stays on. The sequence is 4,6,4,6,4,6,4,6,4,6, then stays on. Second, when I go to stop at a stop light/sign...

You need to have the Airbag System serviced because you have a bad sensor or fault with the Airbag. You need to service the brakes most likely you will end up replacing both front rotors as well as the Front pads. The passenger side caliper tends to dig into the back side of the rotor in the escape for some reason and since you always want to replace these in pairs so they have even pressure you will need to replace both.

Rear Brake on passenger side makes a noise like a high speed rub

Thanks for the inquiry.
This sounds like the either the tattle-tail is giving you a signal the the brakes are worn and need to be replaced before they wear the drum/rotors. Depending on the extent of the sound it may also mean the shoes/pads are worn down far enough you have metal on metal scraping the rotors/drums making this noise when you apply the brake. In either case it's time to re-build your rear brakes.
Kind regards,

I have a clicking and grunting noise from rear brakes, also a scraping noise on a 2006 NISSAN ALTIMA. i was told by one mechanic that cheap brakes and rotors make noise like this and that I should change...

this could be true. if the rotors are worn down(if it looks and feels as if there is a lip on the edge of the rotor) then most likely you may need to have them replaced.

2002 Ford Escape 2WD. No drive on passenger wheel.

the reason you could do that was because it does not have positraction in the differential and it is designed that way for when you take turns so each axle can spin at a different speed. and the ginding noise with the brakes can be misinstalled hardware or a warped rotor.

Ford F150 2004 4x4 passenger side rear wheel noises

You can try the bearings but I think if you take off the rear rotors and look at the emergency brakes you'll find the problem. You might want to ride the emergency brake a little in lieu of removing the rotors to confirm the problem. Also some wheel covers make noise-drive without them and see if it helps.
