German term or phrase:rubbeln
If car brakes "rubbeln", what are they doing? Langenscheidt calls "rubbeln" dialect, and refers to rubbing s.o. or sth. down with a towel!

Explanation: my explanation is hardly connected to cars, however:
you call the activy of "rubbeln" when scratching off the top layer those lottery and other gaming tickets to see underneath i.e. whether you have a winning icon or number etc. - Those "Rubbel"-remnants can create quite a mess, if you are an addict (and I observe people buying them by the dozen at any one time).
