After starting in the garage (with the Parking Brake ON), I release the Parking Brake, I back slowly out onto the gently down-sloping driveway, I use the brake pedal to stop the creep/roll (to let a passenger in), I continue to back out into the street (with a 60 degree turn), and just a second after starting to move forward (with a 30 degree turn) to go off down the street ...
I hear what sounds like a coil spring "twang" (not very loud) as the spring un-sticks from something. This is a recent "new" sound.
It happened each of the last 3 times I left the driveway.
Could it be a Parking Brake has released, but one of its springs is getting slightly caught on something, then fairly quietly "twanging" free?
