Odd scraping noise coming from front of my 147


Desperately need advice - recently I've noticed that when I'm travelling in my 147 at relatively slow speed (i.e. when coming to a stop or driving off from traffic lights/junction) that I can hear a worrying scraping sound from the front wheels of the car. It's really hard to describe but the slower I go the slower the rubbing/scraping and vice versa. I could be way off the mark here but I guess it could be my brake pads/discs rubbing against the wheels???

Does anyone have any ideas what noise I'm hearing?

Re: Odd scraping noise coming from front of my 147

How new are you brake pads? I had a scraping from mine in my last car and ignored it, thinking it was just some dirt or a stone in the CV or something that would work out. Ended up needing new brake discs and I scored such a large grove in them that they where useless.

The reason I didn't suspect the brakes was because when I was braking the noise went away and the car still stopped like it always did
