no, but i got it alot quieter. i got some brake cleaner and sprayed it everywhere but pads (the can said not to). and then i took it on the interstate, put it up to 90- then braked really hard down to like 30, did it 3 times. its a lot better-

-pad is fine.

<HR></BLOCKQUOTE> check the inside of your wheel are there and scrapes on the inside of the wheel from where it rubbed . If no scrapes then what you decribed sounds like your wheel bearing has gone out-- My buds Mk2 did the same makes an awful noise every time the wheel turns- has nothing to do w/ the brakes.
