I think its OS, its a ticking scraping or clicking not sure, does it only when moving forwards and only sometimes.. I can make it do it by rapidly pressing the accelerator, it has done it a few times when holding the car on a hill with the clutch and accelerator....

bugging me now as i cant listen under the car whilst it does it.

What engine you running???

Does it sound mechanical or is it more from the engine side. Check your oil level is good and make sure you have the right grade oil in as this can caude premature wear on you moving engine oarts causing a clicking sound at different speeds....

Sounds like something within the engine area. Get the bonnet up and recreat the sound with help of a friend. Use a long Srcewdriver to listen on the alternater, powersteering pump, A/C pump. Any chce of getting a photo of where you think this noise is coming from??? Maybe a MP3 of the noise???
