all of a sudden, horrible noise


sounded like rock under brake dust cover, never had that happen in personal vehicle, only in a semi

had wife stand outside and ID what wheel sound was from, left rear

jack it up, wheel off, start taking the caliper off to hear the hub noise, look down and see...



rock between rotor and dust shield



i like free repairs.

I have an old Land Rover, the ones that had those dust shields for the disc brakes were often removed completely for this reason. The brakes really don't need that dust shield. If it happens again, you may want to just remove it if possible, especially if you frequently drive on gravel roads.
