Noise in wheel arch

Ever since picking up the vehicle (just clocked 300 klms) I've noticed a noise in the LHF wheel arch that happens only when the car is accelerating AND I'm turning right at an intersection. Doesn't happen when turning left or accelerating away from the lights on a straight.

Sounds a bit like the tyre is rubbing the guard but there is zero evidence of this on close inspection. Then I thought maybe it's just me and the engine noise is simply "escaping" from the wheel arch because the tyre is angled out and not "absorbing" the engine noise. Buggered if I know. Still think it's a rubbing sound.

Anyone else notice this? What else can I check?

No such sound from mine. Have you tried turning the wheel full lock both ways and looking at the gap?

Yes did that, both ways. Can see nothing out of place, no rubbing visible on the tyre, wheel arch mating or plastics.

When the car lifts on take off & turning right something is rubbing. It's a short 'brrrr' sound (LOL) that immediately disappears when you back off or straighten up.

I'm gonna get cained here about the 'brrrr' aren't I? "That's the motor mate."

Re: Noise in wheel arch

Could be a loose engine mount. A few owners have found the bolts loose

Re: Noise in wheel arch

Thanks, any clues on what I look for? Are they obvious from underneath or are they visible from the engine bay?

Re: Noise in wheel arch

I'd have a good look around the CV drive shaft and the heat shields around the engine.
If it's surface contact from a rotating part then you maybe able to see the contact marks.

Re: Noise in wheel arch

Still investigating this noise but so far can't find anything loose or anything rubbing. Definitely only there on take off turning right and coming from LHF wheel area. First service is due soon so will get it looked at.

One other thing I've noticed is a clicking sound in the engine bay when taking off on say loose gravel. I assume this is the traction control kicking in? The noise is surprising if you've never heard it before. Sounds abnormal to me.

Re: Noise in wheel arch

That clicking sound is the ABS pump priming the system for the brakes. It is worse if you have ACC, as it does it while ACC is active.

Re: Noise in wheel arch

ABS? Would that activate with wheel slip when accelerating?

Noticed the amber "anti-skid" dash light illuminates briefly when the clicking noise starts. Same symbol as the centre console toggle switch. Looks like a skidding car.

Re: Noise in wheel arch

Sorry I missread the symptoms. Yes it would be the TC kicking in.
The car will cut power and the light will flash
