Tap Tap Tappity Tap

Usually have the stereo on but was slowing down in between songs and I could hear a tap tap sound coming from the rear of the car. Turned stereo off and listened and sure it enough, tap tap tap which was clearly speed related coming from rear n/s of car. Once you were going fast enough, road noise turned it off. Slight squealing when braking at slow speed to stop.

Checked under car, nothing obvious hitting wheel, nothing hanging off, drive shaft did not move or appear loose. EPB works fine on steep hill.

Drove off and happened to go over a bit of frost damaged/bumpy road after which knocking/tapping stopped! Still a slight squeal from brake sometimes under gentle not firm braking.

Any ideas?

Tapping was probably a chunking stone trapped in your tyre tread.

Stone caught in the tread and/or between backplate and disc?

Inspect the tread and use your boyscout knife tool for removing stones from horse's hooves. Reverse at high speed to clear stone from backplate. 2008 MY Java Black TDV8 HSE

Hmm... Might have been. Tap did sound more mechanical than stone road noise though, it was a solid tap. I thought drive-shaft initially. I do have AT tyres and there are a lot of stones around here.

Does compressor make that noise? No errors on dash but I'll check IID

Drove it 10 miles with no sound/tapping then it came back again. Definitely not tyre/stone related.

Pay n play a few weeks back and I had to go gently into a muddy field (low range, mud rut) on Saturday night to winch my tractor out again. Set everything back

Sound Clip

Made a quick sound clip of the noise with my iPhone stuck out the window going along slowly up a Welsh mountain road...

Sorry about the wind noise!

Well from previous experience I think we can rule out the stone stuck in the tyre tread or something stuck in the dirt guard around the brakes. When I have had something stuck in the Defender’s dirt guard it has been more of a squeal than a ticking noise. 2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, preceeded by a 2.7SE RRS, a 3.6TDv8 RRS, several FFRR's and 2 Evoques.

Maybe a big stone hitting the inside of the wheel as it goes round? Though all the stones round here are pretty soft

That's not a stone, have you checked the rear drive shafts for reeds or anything wrapped round them ?

If there's nothing there then check the props (front and rear as the sound could be travelling).

Other than that I would check that the driveshafts aren't worn or loose hub/s.
