    Hi L
    have you checked the inside pads for wear,if they are ok it could be a cover plate catching a disc,make sure they are all clear of disc's

    does it do this the morning after you washed it the night before or overnite when the weather is damp?
    Fine rust will appear on the discs after they have been damp, this is normal and when you first set off, on the first or second application of the brakes, they self clean, thats when the grating is heard and then are fine. If its a squeal noise, then it is more likely the pad friction material. I understand that it is the modern materials used in pads and a certian amount of squeal is considered acceptable.
