funny sound at front of car

Ive got 2 strange noises coming from my car ( 95 MK 1 Punto). Don't know whether they are related. The two noises are:

One is a strange noise coming from underneath my car. It sounds as if i've knocked my exhaust off and it's rattling away. But the sound is coming more or less from the front of my car. The noise becomes quite loud when the car is idle. When changing gears especially in lower gears it sound more as if the car going to stole. Even though it never does it's just the sound of it. Oil and coolant is fine, but sometimes theres a noise when i apply my breaks.

The noise only occurs when i'm just about to stop and not when i'm breaking to slow down. This sounds more like a scraping sound.

Any suggestions welcome

Kind regards

I test drove a cinq not so long ago and it made a strange noise from when pulling away and it turned out to be the gearbox mount. Not sure how puntos work but could your problem be something simliar? Might be worth a look got ya?
