Mystery noise

09-21-2016, 10:55 PM
I have a 2013 Kia Sportage. I have a scraping and thumping noise coming from the front end of my car. I can only hear it when the steering wheel is straight while coasting or lightly applying the brakes from around 45 mph all the way to a complete stop. It goes away when I accelerate, brake hard, or turn the steering left or right. I just changed the brake pads 3 weeks ago. Just looking for some ideas on what to check tomorrow. Could it be the wheel bearing? Any ideas would be helpful, thanks!

Check your backing plates behind the rotor. One could barely be making contact with a rotor.
