Given the recent good weather, I ave mostly been driving my Spider. Had to pick up a BBQ/fire pit today and took the GTV and noticed a bit of a strange noise... I can only describe it as a whirring/droning sound which is related to road speed and not engine speed. It sounded to me like it is coming from the front but the Mrs was adamant it was coming from the rear. I quick check when I got home confirmed that the tyres were properly inflated and the wheel nuts were secure. No undue movement in the wheels. Iím guessing the next step is to jack up each corner in turn and spin the wheel listening for anything untoward.
Iím guessing it could be...
a. A wheel bearing; remove hub, press out old bearing and fit new one?
b. CV joint especially since I had the obligatory split boot last MOT. Can this be replaced in situ or does the drive shaft need to come out? Hub off?
c. Iíve got grooved discs but theyíve been on a while and never made any noise.
Any other suggestions or ideas? Thanks in advance.
