    03 Daihatsu copen 659cc t/c. Metallic high pitched noise at very low speed a couple of times (driveway). Scraping kind of noise. Maybe when steering to the left or right. Couldn't replicate, seems to be sporadic. Just bought the car, know nothing about it yet. It passed vic roadworthy a month ago with flying colours. Little concerned, how can I identify the issue a little more? What do you think? Thanks very much :)

    Sounds like a brake issue. I think remember someone had an issue with the brake guard (metal plate that protects the back of the disc) was bent. So occasionally rubbed the disc.

    I had that - probably the brake covers.
    I solved it by reaching into the wheels, finding the thin metal cover and giving it a bit of a shake - did that for each wheel and something must have clicked back into place - and no noise since.
