Please Help Diagnose Wheel Problems
I was travelling about 20 mph round a corner, skidded on some ice and hit the curb quite hard. My front allow had a large section snap off and my tyre was flat. I am not sure if my back ofside wheel hit the curb, but there didn't appear to be any damage (but i don't really no what im looking for)
After fitting the space saver to get it safely back home, I order the same 15 inch elegance alloy for my 147. After installing this myself i noticed a 'wub wub wubwubwbub' sound and a bit of vibration under the passenger side footwell. The noise gets more frequent as i get faster.
So I took it in for an MOT and they changed the drivers side tyre (low tread) and the nearside upper suspension arm rubber bushes. The Vibration seems to have been tamed, but it doesn't feel normal and the wub wub wubwub noise/sensation is still noticeable. The Steering pulls slightly to the left but there is no judder in the steering wheel at high speeds (which i think would indicate a wheel balance).
Any ideas what the problem could be?
And why this wasn't diagnosed on my MOT, They obviously checked the area if they failed me on the suspension bushes.
Would a wheel alignment and balance fix my problems?
I have already spent £300 on trying to fix this and the car is not worth much now (2004 147 lusso)
