Hi all: I have a 93 500SEL. Each time I put it in reverse and put my foot on the foot brake there is a distinct grinding noise coming from the left front wheel. After I stop and put the car in drive the rubbing noise diminishes until I tap the brake at which time is goes away. It does not grind at all going forward. Anyone have some idea what this might be. Thanks..Al.

It sounds like a brake pad is hitting the rotor or there is a rock inbetween the pad and rotor. I have seen both.
Good luck

It sounds like one of the pads is moving around. Check the caliper and make sure the locator springs are all inside the arch of the caliper.
