    Our 8 is making a rubbing/groaning noise going over bumps/wiggling steering wheel side to side around the straight ahead position/on and off the throttle at low speed. The wierd thing is, it only seems to do it when the fuel is low? The 8 has just passed an MOT...

    Can anyone help?

    Edit: Its coming from high centre/left side of the bulkhead in the engine bay.

    I've had a listen from outside whilst the wife drove. Its a creaking coming from somewhere the otherside of the front wheel. I've had the pads out and splashed a bit of copper grease about, as the creak goes as the brakes start to bite. I'm not sure that this is the trouble tho? :(
