    Default UJ or wheel bearing?

    My Vectra C has just started making a 'binding/rubbing/grinding' type noise from the o/s/f, audible at slow speeds. Strangely, the noise seems to go when I apply the brakes.

    Does this sound like a UJ or wheel bearing or something else?

    The car has only done 50k miles.

    Sounds like your brake pads are on the wear tabs. REPLACE THEM

    Thanks for the replies but the brakes are fine.

    What I should have mentioned is that the sound is 'rythmic' i.e. directly related to wheel revolutions, not a constant sound. As if something is 'catching' once per revolution, hence my reference to UJ's or wheel bearings, as I believe the sound is similar to those problems.

    Any further thoughts please?
