New noise

Just noticed this - when I accelerate slowly to a crawl, then stay at that speed, I hear this noise which I can only describe as a soft metallic scrapping (like rubbing two pieces of metal back and forth), and goes away as I pick up speed.

Anyone else have this, and is it normal?

Re: New noise

Can you hear the other noise, the slight whirring as speed picks up?

Re: New noise

I reckon the above suggestion is likely, brakes are the cause, a certain chassis range is subject to a technical bulliten where a mod is performed on it may be worth seeing if yours is affected by this
