The most annoying sound you have ever heard.

I drove over a new patch of asphalt today and I think one of the sticky little rocks are trapped between a break pad and disks. Not sure but that's all I can think of. Immediately after it started making the most horrific metallic squeal you've ever heard.

Is there anything that could be done to get rid of it other than taking it apart? Should I keep driving? I might wake the dead if I do.

Or is the issue something else?

Happens all the time on our off-road events. Drive the car in reverse with a little speed and hit the brakes. That usually tosses the stone back out.

Could just be caught in the dust shield too...try wiggling it around and see if anything falls out.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's exactly where they get stuck. The reverse thing seems to eject them effectively though.

Thanks!

If you hear an ear shattering screeching sound tomorrow morning it's just me driving to work.

Do I have to drive in reverse gear all the way to work? It's not coming out. Will take a closer look this weekend.

paper will cover rock so you may try that in the short term, but if the issue still persists, scissors will cut paper, but then again rock breaks scissors, so you may be screwed.

Just had the same thing happen to me today in the wife's VW. Tried backing up all over the place but the stone would not come out. Ended up having to pull the rear wheel off and prying the rock out from between the rotor and mud shield.

Stupid rock!

Throw the dust shields away. They just add to rotor and pad wear and cause these stupid noises.

On a scale from 1 to 10, how annoying was it?

X3 on removing them.

Purpose? Trap rocks (as read above), get rusty, bend, hold in brake dust and heat, cut your foot on when an axle is sitting on the floor of the garage, make it harder to move said axle around, look shitty.

"floss" it out with bailing wire. I have done this on the trail before with good results.
