rear pass side brake rubbing?

This problem started yesterday, and it's only gotten worse since then.

Let me try to describe it. To me it sounds exactly like brakes rubbing, but it doesn't necessarily happen when applying the brakes. Sometime just driving straight or turning will trigger it. it lasts between one and ten seconds at a time then it will stop.

I need to check the rear pads anyway so I'll pull the wheel this weekend. I'm thinking it's a caliper perhaps? What do you guys think? Thanks!\

Edit: Just to clarify 2006 Murano S 67k miles

If it's definitely rear end, then brakes would be my #1 suspect. Remember that the parking brake is actually a drum brake assembly mounted inside the outer disc brake used for driving.

If it's front end, my first suspect would be a bad hub.

It's definitely rear end. Brakes are my main suspect as well just because its not constant. I need to check pad wear anyway so ill pull the wheel one day after work and report back. Can you elaborate more about the parking brake? I've never looked at it. Although I recall reading its adjustable. Think it could be rubbing? Thanks guys!

The parking brake is a drum assembly inside the hub of the rear rotor - or something close to that. When the wheel comes off, the drum is not visible, but the star adjuster is accessible through a small hole in the rotor hub (center) which should have a rubber plug in it.

It would help to check the service manual and see the setup - it may also help to see my thread on replacing the rear pads:

Had time to pull the wheel today and examine the problem. Pads worn to wear indicator. Never had that happen to me before, rear pads wear fast! I could probably use rotors also but it's 20* out and I don't even want to do the pads haha. Rotors can wait until it gets warm. Thanks for the help guys!
