I've had an occasional, but pretty consistent metallic sound coming from my right, rear wheel for some time now. I actually believe it began the last time my car was at the service center, in which they replaced my brakes with the "cold weather" version. The sound was a very hollow, sheet metal type sound that would occur when hitting bumps. I thought it likely had something to do with the brake backing plate, but wasn't quite sure exactly what was causing it. Last night, when changing back over to my summer wheels, I found that the one parking brake pad lining had separated from it's backer and got stuck between the rotor and backing plate. I've seen this happen on conventional brake pads, but am very surprised that this happened on a parking brake. Not sure if the pad had got hung up at some point or if it wore after falling apart, but there wasn't a whole lot of it left.
