Exclamation Lopsided noise as car accelerates at low speeds

Went from a warped rear rotors (that the dealer replaced under warranty) to a lopsided noise at low speeds that I can only hear with the windows rolled up. As I accelerate the noise becomes faster till around 25 mph then it's gone.

Is this just the new stuff working in or burning off? Or drag back to the dealer for the next round of waiting?

Do you hear the noise when you're pressing the brake pedal?

No the warped rotor noise is gone after repair.

So if you only hear it when you're not touching the brake pedal try pushing the brake pedal and see if the noise goes away.

Ok so I wanted to test for a bit but...noise is gone. I was just dreading going back to the dealer.

My first thought was the the dust shield !
