[Biturbos4] scraping, squeeling noises

I was on some snowy roads in Colorado a couple of weeks ago and got the same
noise.  I tried backing up and braking, which must have dislodged whatever
piece of gravel was caught in there.  Also, after power-washing the wheel
wells when I got home, I got the same awful noise until I cleared it the
same way.  Everything's fine since then.  When I took the snows off,
everything looked OK.  The S4 brakes must be very susceptible to picking up

Thanks Keman and Mike for the summary of tools.  On another topic - Last
night coming home from work scraping and squeeling noises from the right
front were heard.  Is this what happens when the brake pads are about shot?
Or should I be looking for a rock stuck in there somewhere?

I did get a lot of mud under the car a couple weeks ago in SW Colorado on my
way to Phoenix, but the noises just started yesterday.  I actually got stuck
and was towed out backwards.  I'm still seeing dry mud under my baby every
time I look even though I've spent a lot of quarters at the car wash.
