Question about 1999 Lexus RX 300
Back wheel is squeaking and squealing. The brake rotor and the calipers are scraping against this thin piece of rusted metal, just when I'm driving, no brakes applied. Any fixes?
If it isn't the brake pad worn out, then it is the brake backing/dust guard sheet metal shield ( AKA backing plate), take a suitable device like a large screwdriver and bend the backing plate away from the rotor. Problem solved.
