    Default rubbing noise?

    2008 Vectra diesel 120. 700 miles on the clock

    Hi

    I have what I can only describe as sounding like a clutch thrust bearing noise but mileage should rule this out so I was wondering if this was normal.

    Ok this is when it happens, in first gear traffic moves off and a few revs goes on but the traffic stops again so instead of changing up I just slow down again in first and thats when I hear it. It lasts for a split second only and sounds like a low moan or a bit like rubbing of an old fashioned drum brake but as I say only for a split second.

    Obviously its still under warranty but wanted to know if its a normal noise for this car before mentioning it to the dealer.

    Thanks for any help

    Answer to my own question but posting up as it may help others in the future.

    I had to take a 200 mile trip today which has more or less added a third to the total mileage. It looks to me I had been treating the engine/clutch/gearbox a little to gently. I have given her a bit of a workout today and the noise has gone so I am hoping its gone for good.

    Trouble is I am from the old days when cars had to be run in and I find it difficult not to treat them gently when I get a new one
