Sorry I didnt know where to put this, but the other day I tried going up my friends drive way but I hit the gutter (twice). Now ever since then I have heard a loud scraping noise that sounds like its coming from around my front wheel on the passenger side. It happens randomly but mostly when I am in a low gear. I have looked under my car for somthing hanging off or anything that could be the problem. DO you guys have any idea what it could be?

Maybe the the left hand plastic inner guard is loose, or front swaybar /brackets are loose/damaged...Vito.

Also check if your brake backing plate is bent. Could be useful to jack the car up, remove the wheel and have a good look around. Before you remove the wheel, give it a few spins in both directions to hear if any scraping occurs.
