    Default M G ZR Noise

    hi all
    need a bit of help with the wifes mgzr the near side rear wheel is making a grinding/wearing noise
    we have driven it along and put the brakes on no difference is made to the noise
    so i thought it might be the wheel bearings but it has done 30 miles today in foul weather (lots of water about) and it does seem quieter but it is still there
    can you get to the wheel bearings (to grease or oil them)easy or is it a garage job
    any help is gratfully recieved
    thanks simon

    My 25 had rear drums - has the ZR? Whip the drum off see if the shoes are in one piece/delaminated?

    Might seem like a strange question, but have you painted your brakes?

    yes it has drums but putting the brakes on makes no difference to the noise
    i was thinking more on the lines of dryed out bearings

    Does the car have discs or drums on the rear??

    Try jacking the wheel off the ground & check for play by holding the wheel & push/pull it from side to side with the handbrake off.
