  17. Screeching sound

    General E46 Forum
    I've noticed a loud screeching sound coming from my car at some points. Some days it's silent and it'll just start screeching like metal on metal which makes me think it's the brakes. The only thing is that it makes the sound when I'm not even braking. It's a pretty loud noise and it's...
