    Default Scraping type noise from driver side?

    I honestley dont know how to explain this but i was driving home from work and noticed this scraping noise at low speed as if something was scraping against a tyre looked under the car but couldnt spot anything...the noise is not constant but has a certain spot where it might catch on somthing checked the brakes couldnt see anything visual wrong...could it possibly be low tyre pressure or is my car too low and the tyres are scraping on the inside of the arches? Any help would be much appreciated

    Potentially going to be your disc backing plate. They can be easily damaged or bent, making them touch the disc and make a noise.

    Crawl under and just bend it away from the disc. It's only a small piece of metal and is at a 6 o'clock position on the rear of the disc.
