Having read plenty of threads on the subject, I've come to the conclusion that the wheel bearing on my front passengers side has gone.
To get some confirmation though, I put it to the floor.
Up to about 40mph, I get a slight vibration, and a noise that is speed dependant that sounds like the tyre is flat, a kind of rapid "dum-dum-dum-dum" noise.
Above 40mph, it starts to drone a bit, not a drone that I've heard from other cars whose bearings have gone, but it sounds like old Land Rovers that have the thin tyres on. (Anyone who's driven military Defenders will know what I mean, as they don't seem to have typical road tyres on)
Also, when turning right, and putting weight on that wheel, the noise disappears briefly.
Can anyone give me a second opinion on that?
Secondly, if it is the bearing, whats the situation with continuing to drive it?
Unfortunately I'm not in any position to fix it soon, and certainly can't stop driving it as I use it to get to work.
Not an ideal situation I know!
