    Default Vec C 03 plate Another new wheel bearing ?

    Hello chaps, I own a Vec C 2.2DTI on an 03 plate and suspect I may need another new N/S front wheel bearing ?

    I havwe looked at the discs and pads they seem to be ok apart from the O/S rear which always seems to have rust on the dics so I suspect a siezed caliper but the wheel bearing is my second one (first went at 50k0 and is making an almighty noise especially when cornering at low speeds.

    Its due an MOT on the 23rd, please tell me its the brakes making the noise !

    Default

    if its the nearside does the noise get les or go when you turn towards the left ???

    usually wheel bearing make a noise when they have pressure on them so if you turn towards the left it puts most of the weight of the car on the front right ( o/s) wheel thus removing some of the weight off the n/s wheel

    if the noise changes when you do this then good chance it will be the wheel bearing
