Noise from front nearside

My daughter has just picked up a Mini One Seven 2006. I have noticed rather a loud grinding noise coming from the front. It isn't scraping like stones trapped in disc and I have just replaced the pads and discs and it is still there.

It appears to be most evident at low speeds/gears and is marginally worse when cornering, but it also happens in a straight line. It does not go away with mild braking. It is also still there if I drop into neutral and coast.

Any ideas.

Wheel Bearings? Ball Joints and or Tie Rod Ends OK ? CV Joints OK ? at the very worst, transaxle (Diff). Check the Transaxle (Diff) oil, change the oil and if its full of debris that could be a clue but check the easy items 1st like wheel bearings and ball joints. May also be an Input Gear bearing or a Clutch release bearing if you also have the noise in neutral.

A reputable mechanic with experience with east west engines may help to shed some light on it.

Most likely nothing more than the dust shield bent in a little and scraping the disc as the wheels rotate.

I think Milpol is scare mongering a little.
