noise form suspension

When vehicle stops and brake on, when opening doors there is a grating noise coming from the suspension when it lowers, does any one else have a problem the vehicle is only 12 months old

Wild shot in the dark but could it be the EPB? Might be worth trying to lower to access height first, then apply brake to see if noise stilll occurs.

But I have no knowledge of newest RRS so might be talking out of my bum. Neutral Robin

The noise is normal, better to start lowering the car a few metres before you park up while the car is still rolling,the car is still drivable at entry height up to 15mph IIRC when you will get the bongs and a warning to raise the car. The noise is stress in the system as the car lowers. There is a warning about this in the owner’s manual IIRC. All 5 of my air suspended Range Rovers made the same noise if I lower the car when it is stopped. 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV on order for April delivery, bye bye Land Rover after 21 years and 11 LR products..... all because you won’t give me reassurance that should my SDv6 crankshaft break because of a design fault, not MY fault, but the engine builders fault - it will be replaced for free.
