Rear brakes rubbing

Just noticed Today...Is it just me - Noticed I have a brake rub from the rear - both sides. I hear it going slow in car parks etc. Is it just the sensor rubbing on the disc? Sounds just like a Falcon Taxi - Brilliant.

The sensor is contained within the pad, aka the sensor will become exposed once the pad wears down.

Possibility of a seized caliper is probably not correct since it is happening on both.

Is your ebrake shoes too tight?

by memory there is only one sensor for F&R so it couldnt be that either if you have it on both sides?

Did you figure out what your issue was? when driving to work today I noticed what seems to be the same thing on the driver's side rear brake. It sounds like a piece of metal rubbing when braking. It isn't the pads themselves, it sounds to me like the brake shield is bent and rubbing in a cyclical way. I drove it all weekend and never notced anything until driving today (I would have noticed if it were there)

Correct. Front left and rear right.

That's what I'm going to look for. I did a little bit more digging and found that it could possibly be the heat shield got a little bent, but I'm leaning more towards a rock got in there somehow. I'll update when I take a look at it

A rock on both sides is unlikely. I am thinking its either park brake too tight after a recent service but not sure if they touched it or I have bent the heat sheilds most likely as I use a brush to clean the wheels and it sometimes gets stuck against the sheild

I took the wheel off to look at it and couldn't find anything. The dealer I bought the car from is offering to have it fixed (bought it as is 200 miles away). They only offered me a tank of gas and car wash and fixing it, I feel like that's not enough, what should I ask for them do since I have to drive so far?
