    Default Rear bearings?

    I have a 52 plate 1.8sxi.

    For some time now people have been saying that there was a rumble from the rear - possibly wheel bearings.

    I couldn't hear it so ignored it!

    Anyway it's loud enough that you can't miss it now. I notice that there has been a recall but it doesn't appear to cover my car.

    The number under the front driver carpet is "wol07 cf693 1018584"

    Anyone know if i could be covered by the recall?

    for a 100% answer, drop it down to your loca dealer and get them to check the chassis number ranges..

    the rumble could be the tyres though..if they are wearing on the inner edges at the rear then that will make them rumble..if the tread blocks on the inner edge are slightly tapered, then i'd be very sure that that is the fault..not the bearings..

    had a poke around the rear brakes to check alll was ok as i had replaced pads about 2 months ago. Both sides fitted incorrectly! The springs which locate in the groove on the pistons were not located and one of the slide bolts had not been greased and was consequently binding.

    Correcting this has cured the problem about 80%, but I now know for certain that one of the rear bearings (nearside) has gone.

    I will get this checked out for recall status at my local dealer tomorrow. Otherwise i'll have to do myself at a cost of £95ish

    Most expensive bearing I've ever had to replace on a car!
