    Default any ideas guys

    Ok so for the past few weeks ive been getting a strange sound from the passenger front wheel area (or i think its there).

    So it started as what i would describe as a high pitched but faint squeak, its recently got louder and more constant , others who hear it think it sounds more like a ticking sound , it does not make the sound when accelerating but as soon as i lift off or apply light acceleration its there. It makes the noise in straight line and turning

    had the wheel off nothing we can see wrong , checked spring, brakes , discs nothing trapped snapped or broken.

    Have you tried running it with front wheels jacked up....while the wheel is spinning it may be more apparent.......

    Prissed it back with a screw driver - prob solved
