Renault Clio, Grinding noise when lift foot from accelerator

Hey All.
Wondering if anyone can be kind enough to help me please.

When I lift my foot off from accelerator I get a grinding nose (sounds abit like metal on metal or a drill).
However I am not touching the brakes at all, Nore does it happen all the time, it just really picks and chooses when to do it. It is only when lift foot from accelerator like its the engine auto braking or something.

I do get a little whine from it also with the grinding noise now and again this is a problem I had roughly same time last year so don't know if maybe heat realated, I thought it had just vanished, guess I was wrong

I have renewed discs and pads few month back and I've also had CV boot joints replaced as well as a driveshaft.

If use need any more information I'd be more than happy to help this problm has been driving me nuts.

Sorry mod's if I've put this in wrong place I'm fairly useless on forums.
Currently in WeeChris's garage:
2001 Renault Clio Mk 2, 1.2 Grande.
