    noise when i pull away.

    As the title says, when i first pull away within the first 100 metres of travel i get a grinding noise coming from my fron wheel. I think it sounds from the drivers side. What could this be? It has been suggested the signs of an ABS sensor about to break.
    I have checked to see if there are any little stones knocking around but it happens every time i drive.

    If it's only the first time after you start the car it's just the abs self check. Sounds like a spring releasing or a grinding.

    If it's every time you pull away at junctions etc, you have an issue. if it's just the first time after startup then it's fine
