I was wondering if anyone else with a BA has been experiencing an intermittent rubbing sound from their rear brakes.
Iím not sure if the disc is slightly warped or the handbrake is just improperly adjusted and dragging, but we first noticed it during the trip to Melbourne for the FPV Day weekend, and a couple of the guys at work commented this morning that it was quite audible from the outside of the car as I arrived at work (my stereo is normally too loud for me to hear it from the inside).
Today while out seeing a customer I was driving with the windows down and the stereo off and it was very noticeable, a constant intermittent rub that reminds me of the old warped disc sound of yesteryear.
Iím going to take it back to the dealer shortly to get them to have a look at it, but I was just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this problem or if itís a known bug with the AU/BA model.

hmmm i am not experiencing it as yet (hope not) but i am getting an awful shudder at the front when i do a *slight* braking. Sometimes when I am driving on a freeway or something it also shudders at the front. Another case of warped brakes? Tell us how you go Jason with your situation, very curious!

AU's were notorious for dragging the handbrake drums. Smart techs sent them off for a smidgen of machining that resolved the problem instantly. It reappears eventually but can be fixed the same way again (mione reappeared after 60k km).
My AU was shocking for it. Stupid pricks at service just loosened off the cable which effectively done nothing except make it that the handbrake lever had to be on flat out for it to even hold.
BA seems to have an ever so slight rubbing sound also...will keep an ear out for it.
nah just get some brake clean and spray the hell out of them, squeeling occurs after rain or dirt driving when small metal or stone particals get traped between the disc and the rotor and cause a metalic scraping sound, nothing to be much concerned about but its not good for ur rotors
