Default Rear Wheel making very loud Scraping/Grinding noise?

91 Acura, the rear right wheel makes a very obnoxious noise when in motion.. literally sounds like a SNOW PLOW scraping over the ground!

Really only apparent at lower speeds and seems to go away when speed picks up past 40 or so.. same whether im going forward to backwards and is independant of whether or not im engaging the brakes.. any ideas??

Your break pads are all the way worn down to the rotor. Take your car to a mechanic to check out your breaks.

Mechanical scraping noises on a wheel are normally due to two pieces of metal contacting each other abnormally. Eg brake shoe, drum. Dust shield etc.

A visual inspection and strip is best way to find out. Eg spin wheel by hand when jacked off floor. Ensuring safe ..axle stand?

If we unable to feel or hear any sounds? Then we can trysting it in hear and using throttle ,,hence need to have safely on axle stand .ideally with wheel chicks on wheels on floor.

We can remove drum or if discs? Inspect for bright metal areas etc. a brake shop or garage can easily check most of this for you.
