Scraping noise

Over the last week my PB182 has been making a scraping noise from the front. It sounds just like you have a tree branch stuck under the car. Its worst between 0-50mph and you dont hear it that much above that - but it could be the engine sound that drowns it out after that.

It does however completely disappear when you press the clutch pedal down so you are coasting. If i rev the engine at a standstill it doesnt make the sound. I also find the noise tends to get a lot quieter when you arent accelerating

Im hoping someone knows what it is so I can get it fixed. Im thinking it has to be something like the gearbox or clutch. The gearbox works OK no crunches or anything.
Thanks

It might sound daft mate but check the front arch liners arnt scraping, it makes a dreadful noise when they detach and scrape along the floor!

Thanks mate, have checked them as it is just like that sort of noise, the noise disappears when the clutch is pressed though.
