I hope everyone on this forum is staying safe and remaining healthy during this pandemic the world is facing.

My car has been sitting for about 2 weeks and I took it out on a nice little morning drive and I noticed this screeching sound coming from my back rear wheel area.

It almost sounds like metal on metal rubbing? Does anyone know what this could be?

Thank you and stay safe :).

How did you get it out? Did you have to go down to the dealership?
You can take off the wheels and if you have a long narrow screw driver you can run it in the space between the dust shield and the rotor to get it out. It wont damage the rotor or the dust shield.

I’ve had that happen too. Just drive and it will grind away enough to fall out. The steel is much harder. The rock has no chance.

Had this happen years back when I had a Boxster. The rock came loose after I went into a driveway with an inch step up curb! Thought I was in for some serious repairs due to the noise the rock was making.

I really appreciate all the feedback.
I went for a 30 minute drive and the rock just doesn’t want to come out. I am going to try the reverse method. Wish me luck 😂.

Definitely a rock in the brake shield. Happens to me about once a day at this one track because i have to drive through gravel on hot sticky tires. Drive fast, maybe back up, etc. It'll come out.

Not sure what it is about this car. Maybe the dust shield is closer to the rotors than other cars.
