so what can it be if its NOT a wheel bearing ???
GTV 3.0 PH1 1998 with 107000 miles
my problem has all hallmarks of a wheel bearing rumbling / semi grinding noise coming from what sounds like front left wheel, when i ride as passenger i can feel it resonating through my feet on the front carpet bulkead, noise is speed related as when you change to neutral at speed it stays same resonance,
recently had new disks and pads all round fitted by top mechanic 12th March and new GTA alloys purchased used from Autolussu fitted 17th March, Noise 1st started to happen on journey down to Autolusso (80 miles) this was 5 days after the brakes and pads were fitted no journey of any note between the Saturday and the Thursday Autolusso visit, changed from 16" teledials with spacers to 17" GTA alloys with no spacers at Autolusso premesis and noise was worse if anything
WAD local specialist in Wolverhampton cant isolate problem but consider it more to be tyres rather than bearing ?????? had it on ramp and cant feel anything throguh the wheel as its on a ramp spining freely ????? quite expensive to speculativly change either trres to front or a bearing that bont believe it is ???
If it all seems under control..............your not going fast enough !!
