    7 & 8mph tapping noise

    Im getting a tapping noise when i go 7 or 8 mph...

    no matter what gear im in (1st, 2nd or 3rd) i get a tapping at 7 & 8 mph (scangauge mph).

    it cuts out at exactly 9 mph and starts roughly 6.5 mph.

    it happens in gear

    it happens in neutral

    it happens with clutch down in gear

    anyone heard this before?

    i never noticed it until today... very strange.

    went out for a drive with someone in the back and its feinter in the back so sounds like front end.

    tried jacking the car up and getting the wheels moving off the gound to same speed and did it then...

    sound is loudest in the drivers footwell

    hmmm..

    any suggestions?

    could be your brakes.

    uneven pad or disc wear causing it to touch on revolution at certain points at slow speeds, at higher speeds you may not notice it?
