Hey there F150,

I am unsure about a few things in your statement below:

If you could help clarify a little, I am most certain that any member of the forum may then be better able to help you.

1. Is the "Errr" noise constant? - Could possibly be the dust/rotor shield rubbing.
2. Is the "Errr" noise happening ONLY when you apply the brakes and is the ABS light coming on at the same time and then going out? - Could possibly be your ABS system operating.
3. Did the "Errr" noise begin after you changed the brakes? Front Brakes? Pads and Rotors? - Tone Ring???
4. Do you have access to a good Scanner with ABS capabilities? - If the the ABS light is NOT coming on, then going off when the system is operating, you may want to scan for any codes.

I understand that this may not seem terribly helpful to yourself, and I do apologize for that.

that was my first thought too. does it sound like you're dragging a metal plate on the garage floor?

If it sounds like that, my Ranger that did last night, it may be as simple as a small stone wedging itself between the rotor and stone shield/backing plate. I removed the tire/wheel at the right front corner. I thought at first the stone shield was rubbing on the rotor. On the leading edge, it's quite a close clearance, and I was going to just remove it altogether, then replace when I do a brake job. It's held on by three bolts, two of which can only be accessed after the rotor is removed. Well, I really didn't want to get into all that right now. Luckily, I looked a bit closer, and saw the stone. A skinny screwdriver later, stone was gone, no noise. Just maybe,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,:smile5:
