    I recently bought 96 Honda Civic for my wife, but I drive to work.
    About a week ago a scrreeching (metal on metal) noise started very
    quietly and it's been getting louder daily.
    But it doesn't start until I've driven about 3/4 miles and then it
    slowly gets louder and louder BUT when I apply the brakes or do any
    sharp turns it fades or completely disappears until I release the
    brakes or straighten up.

    Any ideas anyone?

    Check the pads for wear - could be the wear indicator.

    Check Tegger's faq:

    I had the exact same noise during turns that disappeared when I
    straightened out or applied the brakes. When I checked my pads they
    were almost new, so no wear indicator noise. I did Tegger's brake
    maintenance and it solved all problems immediately. I highly recommend

    good luck

    Thanks for the replies.
    I'll take a look at the link you posted Bruce and hopefully update this
    message to let you know how I get on.

    Thanks again.
