Question about Mitsubishi Colt
When i am driving over 5mph i hear a scraping noise like something is rubbing. The noise is loud enough to attract attention of pedestrians. The noise eminates from the rear left corner of the car and is constant except at low speeds. It happens regardless of whether the brakes are applied or not. I have only driven 1 mile since it started making the noise. I did a visual inspection on all the wheels, they look ok and i can't see any obvious debris in the wheel or around the brake pads/discs that would cause the noise. The noise persists whether you drive straight, or turn right or left or over bumps etc. I have had no work or parts replaced since July last year so its not a product of work i have had done and i have had zero problems with the car which is 4 yrs old and done 30k miles. It's hard to describe the noise, its not a screeching sound much more dull than that with a low pitch that varies a little but not with speed / turns etc. Please help!!!

you did damage to the wheel bearing i bet it sounds like a airplane sound. also if you steering wheel is off 7"then have front end aligned because this will destroy the tires and they will make noise.

when the noise is heard, try putting very slight pressure on the brake pedal and see if the noise goes away. If this is the case then definitely the brakes have to be removed and checked again. But if the noise is still present then it's something else doing that noise ans further investigations needs to be carried oput.

Have you checked the metal clips that olds the brake pads in the front galiper bracket. They usualy rust, break loose and come in contact whit the disc, creating a squeaking noise. Those should be replace since they are needed for the brakes to work properly

I have the same exact model, same year and the same problem at 52,000 miles. Did changing the brake pads solve the problem? Because I hope thats all it is...
