Exclamation Clicking noise that increases with speed from rear passenger side

Hi everyone, today I noticed an odd clicking or scraping noise coming from the rear passenger wheel of my 2016 brz limited. I jacked the car up and spun every wheel to see if I could recreate the noise but it didnít work. Went for another drive and the noise didnít reappear until breaking from about 60mph to 20mph then did not go away for the rest of the drive. Iíve attached two videos of the noise. Sorry if itís a little hard to hear over the exhaust. Anyone know what could be causing the noise?

Regrading maintenance, I purchased the car from a dealer a little over a year ago at about 56,000ish miles and it now has 62,000 miles. The pads on all 4 wheels were replaced in January with ceramic pads and have plenty of brake material left. However the rotors have not been replaced ever I think but show no signs of unusual wear.

Hello amaurya, and welcome to ...... The Forum .....

I'd "guess" your car has a sticking caliper.

Take a look at your passenger axle and see if you can see any tears in the boots, excess grease and give it a shake front to back to see if it has play.

from past experience, aftermarket pads can have a loose fit and make odd noises.

for starters, check to see if the temperature of that particular caliper is hotter than the others. If it is dragging, it will be hotter. It may just need a good cleaning.

Second, try bedding the pads again after cleaning and putting a dab of ceramic never-seize on the pad and hardware contact points.

I always go original equipment on brakes. It is best to avoid coming to a complete stop after hard usage until everything cools a bit...
