    Default strange noise from rear drivers side

    hi guys i have a 1.8 vvt 06 plate vec. this rather strange noise has appeared from around the drivers side rear wheel. it sounds like theres a piece of metal hanging of the underside grinding along the floor. naturally ive checked to make sure theres nothing hanging off which there isnt. it seems particularly bad when im in 1st gear and reverse.
    sorry for my rather vague description but does this sound familiar to anyone at all?
    many thanks

    Similar here..

    I get a tapping when braking (could just need greasing), and a metal knocking sound when turning left from the same wheel... slow speeds so same gears...

    Ok once moving, exhaust is fine also...?!?!

    Hi Chris
    firstly check the brake shield isn't catching the disc,then check rear bearing,spin wheel and check for noise,rock wheel top to bottom,side to side and check for any play in bearing this is the most likely.
