When you are driving slowly with your foot off the brakes you

will hear a scraping noise. The noise will go away when you apply

the brakes. What you are hearing is the wear indicators making

contact with the rotor surface after the pad lining have worn down

to a certain level. Not all brakes uses wear indicators. VBD
