At Last....... Droning Stopped

As title suggests, I can drive in comfort. Had a very loud drone from both rear wheels, on investigation I found that I needed new rear discs, tyres and possibly a wheel bearing! I removed the rear n/s disc, both discs had uneven wear, spun the bearing and there found the source of the drone!! The bearing was shot to bits, when I managed to finally remove the bearing, it broke up leaving the inner race stuck on the axle. Finally rebuilt both axles, took my Bella for a drive and bliss....... No more droning!

I inspected the broken bearing and found the grease had hardened.
