Cornering on right hand open bends produces rasping noise - loud under acceleration, fairly soft on steady throttle, none if no throttle. Noise appears to come from front left corner. Similar noise but intermittent on compression on bumpy surfaces (but not apparent on potholes or under braking).

Case of checking out steering and suspension for any wear and tear . Also check engine mounts , wheel bearings and any heat shields .

Many thanks for these suggestions. I'll consult my local garage as to which of these they checked.
