Just to update the thread since leaving the car at the dealership, I turned up today with the spare key, V5 and all the paperwork I said I was rejecting the car. At this point the manager was called and we had a long discussion.Did you get any further with your complaint ?
Pressing the clutch had no effect on the noise unfortunately. I say unfortunately as I'd have liked to have had a better idea of what the "issue" was.I've not heard the video... but does the noise go away when you press the clutch?
scraping/rubbing at idle can be a thrust bearing on the clutch
