Ok an update, just got the car back from the mechanic and it turned out to be the wheel bearing, changed it for a new one and all quiet
finally my suspension/drive train rebuild is complete
but i get the sneeky suspicion that my right side driveshaft is going
creaks all the time when turning or accelerating. **** it, it can wait for now.
So the only mechanical jobs left are:
weld up the exhaust at the engine side as its got a crack in it
well apart from the rear electric window not working, passenger sun visor doesnt stay up, fuel cap cover broken (doesnt shut) need a bulb (bloody hell the park lights at the front are a right bugger to get off!) repair the passenger wing mirror as its a bit loose, replace the door that was crashed into
and then the car will be as good as new!
