Make sure that the axle bolt is not loose.

There may be noise from the drive shafts, the splines!
It is very common on these cars.That noise arising from the towing position and when you pull away!

From VIDA:
Bolt drive shaft - wheel hub, front: Stage 1: 35 Nm, Stage 2: 90°
or
Bolt drive shaft - wheel hub, version with rubber cone: 50 Nm

Axle bolt sounds like a chain rattling. Just happened to me a few days ago.
