    hi all. heard a scraping noise from my a3 tdi sport 2004 plate tonight.
    best way i can describe it is as if two pieces of metal are scraping together. seems to be at my passenger front wheel.
    wasn't sure if it was something lodged, stone etc at caliper.
    travelled 200metres and bingo. everything ok.
    if it makes any difference i've noticed mpg dropping not alarmingly but a good 5mpg less than usual doing same journeys

    Sounds like a stone stuck in your pads assuming your pads are not down to the metal !!. Often a quick reverse will dislodge it if it happens again.
