Started up the car this eveing and as I pulled out of the car park I heard a scraping sound that sounded similar to when the brake pads are worn but it only happened in first gear when at full lock left or right. Tried full lock in reverse and it didnt happen. There's also a white residue on the brake calipers but that could be a coincidence as had it cleaned and waxed earlier

Any ideas please?

Guessing (hoping) it might be just brake pads or discs?

Maybe. It's a coincidence it started happening after it was washed/waxed by the valet place I use

A jet of water from a hose may have 'bumped' a small stone between the disc / caliper & shield?

It does make a 'terrible' noise - first time I heard it, I was thinking the worst :lol:

Well the car is noiseless this morning (apart from the roar of the V6 of course :lol:) so it looks like it may have been the said stone
