can anyone help diagnose a problem with my gtv in the coalville/burton area?

Hi guys i have a problem with my gtv basically it makes a "wobwobwobwob" noise when im driving, it has got worse since xmas and i have just had the inner cv joint changed by a garage and its still not gone away.

this was my original post
https://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/alfa-...ery-loose.html

so just wondered if anyone who is good at diagnose a problem could help or wouldnt mind having a listen if i poped her round? i work in coalville 9-5 monday-sat and live in burton. i just want to know what wrong as i dont want to pay for another repair and its still not fix etc

i think it could be either the driveshaft, wheel bearing or out cv joint but i just dont know how to tell the difference between them. Also if i put mu foot down it sort of pull the stearing wheel like i hit a bit of ice on the road?

i have tried driven round corners trying to tell what side its from etc but i just cant tell? i thought it was front drivers side but my dad thinks it coming from the rear hayhoo thanks Jon

Best bet is probably get in touch with a specialist mate I can recommend Lewis at Alfa Tecnico he's always happy to help Alfa Romeo Specialist

As I said in your previous post, that is the sound I make to describe a duff wheel bearing!

But I would also ask, has it got aftermarket wheels? If so, have they been fitted with the correct bolts? If you do not have hub centering on the wheels and they are fitted with incorrect bolts then the wheel could be moving about on the hub. It will quickly work the bolts loose and end BADLY!

Have you had a close look at your tyres for blows or anything untoward? Look on the inside wall's! I could describe a similar sound from my car in the same way and it turned out to be a blow in the inside wall.

Sorry! Just read your first post. If you removed all the wheels you would have noticed if anything was wrong with a tyre.

thanks for your reply's, i tried what "gtv blue" suggested and the only difference i can feel is in the back drivers side wheel, it sound scrappy when its spun but im not 100% sure but the gtv has gone in for mot today so im sure it will bring up the issues and confirm if its the rear wheel bearing. I will report back as to what it was and who got it right lol! thanks Jon
