Mine makes a bit of a sueal, as if it hasn't quite released. Is this part of the same problem ?

Mine idles at 800RPM (was serviced on Wednesday), except when it does the fast idle start. I'd assume that all diesel models are the same...

Yes they are on my list too. But they are of a softer material so less likely.

To use your Wobble Board analogy, I would think being a softer material would actually make it more likely.  No ?  A bit of cardboard can make a wobble board noise.

Absolutely no help I know, so apologies in advance, but your ongoing efforts to resolve this put me in mind of this old advert. Perhaps you need to think outside the box  ;D

I emailed the Mazda dealer today to see if it is a known problem. Reply was "not sure it's a known problem but book it in for £118 and we will investigate! Mmmmm???

I know what you mean and I am sure I would have noticed that the amount of time I spent under the car yesterday :-) It's not really that sort of noise. If you think of Rolf Harris' (sorry to mention him) wobble board, when you shake a sheet of board, its that sort of noise.

Thanks for your input.

Completely out of the ball park, but have you checked the inner side walls of your tyres ?  Sometimes they get a lump/bulge which you cannot see from the outside.  Very easy to check.  Just a thought.
