Don't remind me about the e-brake shoes! I had a clanking/rattling/scraping noise, somewhat intermittent, that drove me to drink. (Yeah, I'll blame it on that!) I checked everything that had a nut or bolt underneath my car, including the notorious exhaust heat shields. Turned out to be e-brake shoes that were kind not clipped in place. Therefore, I hereby declare that no undercar noise should be declared "fixed" until the e-brake shoes are checked. So let it be written, so let it be done.
