Wife describes "scraping noise" from passenger side intermittently...

Hello everyone. Haven't been on the forums for a while. I have a 2012 limited. I have yet to hear the issue and I have driven the jeep multiple times since my wife first described the noise.

She describes it as a scraping noise("like the muffler fell off or something") coming from the front passenger side wheel she thinks. Then it goes away. This happened a few weeks ago. I drove it many times since and the jeep drives as smooth as the day we got it with zero sounds or noises. Today, she experienced the noise again of course without me in the jeep to try to figure out what the issue would be.

The jeep has about 60k miles. I have a dedicated winter wheel and tire set up on it currently but have never had any noises with those wheels/tires before in the past 2 years using them.

She also(one time) experienced her dash lighting up like a Christmas tree with "SERV 4WD" "ABS light" "traction control light" . Those lights never came on again after she got to her destination and turned the jeep back on to leave.

I first thought it was the wheel bearing when she told me about it the first time but would the sound come and go if that was the case? Same with brakes, wouldn't the warning "scrape" stick around if the pads were worn?

I'm thinking we will need to trade cars for a while to see if I can experience it and try to pinpoint the issue...

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Jon

Re: Wife describes "scraping noise" from passenger side intermittently...

Brake pads were my first thought. I've had a sticky caliper (on my previous non-Jeep) cause the wear indicator in the brake pad to sound off intermittently. It would be a very high-pitched scrape/screech, assuming these big Jeep pads sound the same.

I fixed it by pulling the caliper pins out, cleaning them well, re-lubricating them and putting them back in the boots they fit in. When you push the pins in they should (slowly) retract back. This was on a Honda but the process should be similar. I had to change the pads, too. Sounds like you will need trade rides until you hear it yourself, though.

Yep I just had that exact same problem. Make sure the backing plate/ dust plate is far enough away. Stuff gets back there.
