    Default Sever rubbing noise on nsf at 20mph

    For 12 months now I've had a rubbing noise coming from (I'm fairly sure) the nearside front wheel. It is most pronounced at 20 mph. It is still there at faster speeds but sounds more like a chopper due to the increased speed. It has been getting gradually worse, to the point here the "boss" doesn't want to be in it with the rug rats. Taken her in to VX (the car, not the "boss") twice but you know where that got me.

    The sound is lust like a rubbing pad, or the noise you get when your disc is starting to warp. So changed ALL pads AND ALL discs. No difference at all. Now, seems to me that because it is still there after new pads and discs we can rule out anything to do with breaks (if it was a sticking caliper it would be constant, or at least would sound different now there's shiny new discs on it. I am starting to think I've got to look elsewhere other than the wheels, maybe inside the engine or gearbox. It makes no difference what gear I'm in. I've even done the stupid thing of turning the engine off while going downhill and I'm pretty sure it was still there. So what now?

    Oh, should also have mentioned... It is too bad to be from a tyre out of shape. I can't feel any problem through the steering wheel, neither through the brake pedal.

    Sounds very much like a worn wheel bearing mate. Get it checked out especially if it had been doing it for a while and its getting worse. If the bearing goes at worst you could loose a wheel

    Default Noise

    Thanks, John. Yes I agree that's what I might think. But the XV dealer doesn't think it's noisy enough to be a bearing. Although, that was a month ago now, so maybe he'll think differently when I take it back in.

    Any other ideas greatly received....
