2003 Rav4 Scraping sound while driving
I have a 2003 Rav4 that recently has started making a strange scraping sound coming
from the rear (not sure which side). It started out only scraping/grinding when I took
corners. Now it starts right away as I drive - like a rotating scraping sound. It speeds
up and gets louder as I go faster, but the rotations are still slower than the tire
rotations... then it eventually fades and gets quieter again. Does anyone have any
insight on what could be the cause? Thank you!
Check the brakes, the parking brake might be hanging up. Also the driveline can be inspected.
Thank you! I had it at the dealer for maintenance 2 weeks ago and I was told my brakes are fine. (Also the sound is when I'm driving and quiets when I'm braking). I was worried it might be a drive train issue, which sounds very expensive.
Might be your exhaust or other part that is contacting your driveshaft or axle shaft as they spin while driving down the road.
Thank you very much!!
