  • What is this noise..?

    Hi guys,

    I've been having a funny noise while driving and it's coming up more frequently now, it's like a metallic scraping noise, it originally came from the right hand side of the car when i was on full lock. More recently it has been happened when braking, left lock right lock.

    It sounds terrible and I feel like the car is falling to bits..

    It's due for an MOT in January and I'm dreading it at the moment.

    I've been told it could be, the backing plates to the brakes, worn brakes, bearings (already been checked and they're fine) , the plastic headlamp covers (although I would think this wouldn't be a metallic scraping sound).

    Do you guys have any advice or has anyone had this sound before?

    Thanks

    Droplinks are worth a look. They sound horrendous when they go

        No it will more than likely be the stone guard behind the front disc. Put it on full lock get under with a flat blade screw driver and bend it away from the disc. Easy fix.

                        Just had a quick look under the car, jacked it up so I could move the wheels and the passengers side was scraping. Got under and found the backing plate, bent it away and the noise went. Thanks for the help guys!!

                          That noise is nearly always that plate. First place I always look.
