    Shrieking ping like noise when stopping, accelerating and turning.

    I'll start off by saying this started months ago and hasn't changed or gone away. I recently replaced all rotors and pads (noise was present before and after changes). I've gone over my brakes 3 times now and made sure everything's lubed, tightened and set properly. I have no clue what the noise is but it's coming from the rear, random and annoying. I'll try to upload a vid later if I can get the noise. Any ideas?

    May seem stupid. But check your rear wiper motor in the hatch. I had a similar sound and it turned out to be my wiper motor. Again I know it seems stupid but worth a check into

    So it is not the brakes.
    Can you list any mods prior to the noise being heard?

    Catless downpipe, intake and blow off valve. I shooked/inspected my exhaust and no noise came from it. I still have no idea and I went over everything under the car.

    Do you have a way to document the noise? Maybe there is something stuck under the carpet/between body panels. Or it could be the rear wiper as someone already suggested.

    I can record with my phone after work today, I think it's drivetrain related.
