    Squeeking and grinding

    Hi
    Have been have a squeeking and metalic grinding noise on my MK5 it is coming from the driver side.
    Now it happened after lowering, any suggestions as to what it may be, i have presumed the brakes but surely lowering wouldnt affect this?

    Are there any rear guards around your brake discs?

    Make sure there isn't stones stuck behind there

    I had this when i put the new wheels on, turned out the we must of knocked the caliper piston in slighty as the brake pad was binding constantly on to the disc.

    Made a very very irritating squeal.
