Freelander grating on me

The dreaded 'please diagnose this noise from a written description' time again! :rolleyes:

Friend's late 90's 1.8. Makes 'grating' noise when moving. Been doing it 'for some time'.

No better, no worse when braking (and nothing trapped in pads). So not brakes?

Still does it with clutch peddle down. Same in all gears. So not gear box?

No better, no worse when cornering. So not diffs?

Doesn't do it when stationary. So not engine?

Wheel bearings appear to be ok.

Viscus coupling? I've not come across a failing one so how do you tell?

Any suggestions gratefully received.

A quick fix will be to change the rear tyres and it will go away but only for about 10,000 miles then come back as the noise is the affect of the problem .

the IRD is draging and wearing the rear tyres making them rumbble or wine.
