    Not heard of a rubbing noise being a known issue with Zafs. If is a 'twang' as Danny asks, then its the anti skid resetting, nothing to worry about. Is it while you drive, or can you hear it when it's at standstill?

    I had this on my Daewoo Nubira ( ).

    Hey, it's an Astra in disguise, OK!

    It was a loud metallic clunking noise.

    I asked the dealer, and they assured me it was the ABS 'Arming'.

    Could it be the same thing?

    it might be the clutch slave cylinder.
    if you take up the bite on the clutch does it do it?
