    grinding sound?

    Ok, so when Im in line at a fast food place and I'm pulling up to a window I hear a grinding when I'm almost to a stop, it usually only happens when I'm at a fast done place, so its weird.. but it happened again when I parked at work today... Anyone know what it could be?? Just changed my breaks and rotors less than 3k ago

    You hear it due to the sound being reflected off the building or other objects that are close by in the drive through -- that is why you don't notice it on the street. Wouldn't be a bad idea to check things out or have someone drive your car while you walk next to it listening to see where the sound is coming from.

    I agree with Jeff, it's echoing off the building or other near objects.

    Did you use brake cleaner on everything?

    Do you drive your car daily? It's possible you picked something up.

    Worse case, it's a bad hub.

    Didn't use any break cleaner. And its my daily driver, so ill have to check it out when I get time. The more I listen it may be coming from the back and It's more of a vibrating I'm thinking
