Hello, I have a 2006 Colt Mirage 1.1 with 26k on the meter. Recently it has started to make a grinding noice at times. Generally, it is either when I turn the ignition, so at first I thought it was something with the starter. I noticed that it was more likely to make this grinding/scraping noise if I turned the key a fraction longer. The car has no problem starting, so if I turn the ignition just so that the starter kicks in it makes less noise. In the last couple of days I've noticed that the car is sometimes making the same noise when I come to a stop. It doensn't matter if I'm in gear or not, or if I push the clutch down or keep it up. There is no problem when I gain some speed, then the car is right as rain. Any ideas?
