When braking at slow speeds, I hear a rubbing noise that sounds like it is coming from under neath the car. there is also a creaking noise. I recently had my front brake pads replaced as the garage thought they put the wrong pads on in june. the car is still making the noise and seems to be getting worse. I am going to have to take it to the dealer for a diagnostic check but know that they will charge an arm and a leg…any ideas of what it could be?? I have checked numerous sites online but nothing gives any answers…. I am also hearing a periodic popping noise when i accelerate. I am wondering if I hit a pot hole or something. maybe something came loose. please help!
