I have recently purchased a Astra 2.0 Turbo (05 plate) and I have noticed that when I first drive off, and change into 2nd gear, I get a funny clicking noise from the right hand side of the engine (the only thing I can liken the noise too is like stones being thrown up under the wheel arch). It happens around 10 or so seconds after driving off, and the sound does appear to come from down low in the engine bay. I never noticed it when I first bought the car but haapens everytime now... any ideas? (my initial reaction was that possibly the brake in the driver side wheel was sticking)
It only happens when I first start off... if I have been driving for a while and change from 1st to 2nd I don't get the noise?
