Default Does Anyone Know What Sticking Calipers Sound Like?

Hey guys so I finally took my 350z to the mechanic for that ANNOYING noise I've been hearing from the rear of my car, both driver and passenger wheels are making a squealing noise at slow speed or when I let off the gas, usually the squealing gets louder when I turn left. So today a mechanic checked my car out and he said it looked like my calipers where sticking, he just checked it fom the outside since he checked it for free, but I've researched a lot and it sounds like either I have a bad wheel bearing or my calipers in the rear are really sticking, so I asked him and he said he's almost 100% my calipers are sticking and my rotors looked scratched up so he might be right but I don't trust mechanics around here so I looked on YouTube but my phone doesn't give very much variety of videos so I was wondering if anyone has ever had sticking calipers and what noise does it make or if anyone can post a video of a clear sound. Thanks

That's what happened to me with my maxima I would go around corners or even back my car in parking spot I would get a noise and it ended up being my caliper replaced it and never heard the noise again. Hope this helps

If the mechanic doesnt charge you too much to fix then fix it but most of the time its cheaper to just but a new one and replace the sticking caliper
