Car been to garage - Now its all wrong! Help!
Took my 156 TS Sele to a local garage to have a new set of rear pads fitted. This they did, they also changed the oil and filter, rotated the wheels front to rear and straightened up the tracking. It is now set at 1Degree toe in as I always request (2 Degrees is the chart setting)
So rear wheels on front, front on rear, all directional, all correct. The garage checked the balance on the two going up front and one needed a single small weight to correct imbalance. All evenly worn treads
Now the car has developed a whir from the front, a kind of low pitched whirring low frequency vibration. This was not there before! There is no instability, car handles well, grips well, turns in well etc.
Most noticeable driving slowly, gets louder from about 5 mph, getting to a peak at about 60mph when wind noise and road roar take over.
There is a slight vibration through the steering wheel on sternish braking over about 75mph. The same brand of tyre used to be on the front, and didn't produce this much noise as normal road noise.
I was thinking possibly a knackered tyre casing or a buckled wheel which didn't notice while it was out back? Only other throught is that the tracking has been set up wrong!
I shall be going back to the garage asap, but any ideas before I go?
