Re: Noise that sounds like a scraping noise.
If it stays long enough, press very lightly on the brakes to see if it will change or cease; I have occasional problems as you describe if one of our vehicles stands too long in our fairly humid area.
When severe, I drive slowly forward while applying a little braking action and this clears it up.

Hi Daniel You mentioned a noise but not what type of noise?
I can only give some ideas of the more common noises.
1 fluttering noise, normally a leaf or leaves have managed to enter box from external vent.
2 squeaking noise, dry bearing or worn bearing.
3 whirring noise, again possible bearing.
4 movement when switched off scraping or scratching sound possible mouse has got into box again through external vent.
5 buzzing or ticking noise possibly electrical fault do not use until checked by auto electrician.
note, most cars have a cabin filter between the external vent and the intake fan, normally these filters are not to difficult to access with care. If it is accessible remove it and check inside with a mirror and torch. Good luck
No, my guess is your experiencing a little rust on brake rotors, or something similar. What happens when you do it with slight pressure on brakes, does noise change? Does it matter which way you turn? Doesn't happen at other speeds?
The sound is a relay switching over when you insert the key and power the vehicles accesories. It is a normal sound, but whatever that relay powers may fail soon. It sounds like the small electromagnet inside won't hold the voltage, hence the clicking sound.
The high pitched whine in reverse sounds normal for a honda. Ever honda I have had makes a similar noise while in reverse. The spinning, scraping noise in drive is not normal. You might want to see a mechanic about that.
even if you tightened the wheel bearing, it is probably worn out..
what it does when it's loose is you won't hear much noise when you drive on a strait road but the minute you put some weight on it, like when you take a curve, the weight of the body is applied on the bearing resulting in a scraping noise....
and the faster you'll drive the more noise you'll get
so let's say you take a left turn you're gonna hear noise from the right wheel...
its probably your bump stops. the vw ones are very soft. i bought ford escort (the shape after the xr3) ones and cut them a little down to fit. i think the noise is either your shock touching or the sound of the tire scraping the body of the car. hope this helps.
If it's a scraping sound, when does it happen? If it's when you hit the brakes, then it's likely your rear brake pads/shoes are down to the metal and are scraping. This can happen when you're not hitting the brakes, however. Bad wheel bearings are usually a moaning/roaring sound that increases as road speed increases. Ditto that for differential bearings - if they go out, you usually get a roaring noise that increases the faster you go.
