I have recently started hearing a grinding noise from the back sound slike something is rubbing. Took off the wheels today and it looks like the discs are rubbing a little on the nearside rear.They were only replaced 5 month ago and not done a lot of miles. Any ideas?

I would check the bearings by gripping the wheel at the top and bottom pushing one while pulling the other and checking for movement. There shouldn't really be any. It could also be the calipers starting to seize as mk3 mondeo's are know for this.

Hope this helps

Jack up the car with handbrake off make sure wheel spins freely if it requires force to turn could be starting to seize.
