kinda yeah, it got real bad, like from no noise to big noise in just a week, how much would that cost to fix, there would be play in the wheel if it was this tho surely?

just depends what is nackered, but if the noise gets more frequant as the rotation becomes quicker then i'd have thought it was wheel bearing

front bearing are a bit more trickier than rear, as they need to use a press to get the bearing in place

say about £60-£80 parts&labour

hard to describe the noise, but i would say its like a rattley sound when your going quite fast, and when you go slower its like a 'thump thump' sound

Broster are you on coilovers??
I had this noise since I fitted Spax RSX's to mine. Its gone now, went about 2weeks ago and hasent returned My coilovers were close to the tyres but it wasnt them. I took it to about 5 garages (2 vaux) and got free checks on ramps but NONE of them could find owt wrong...
I had big suspicions that it was the topmount causing it but changed it and it still did it. Also their was some play in the coilover when fully extended (only slight and they are virtually brand new) but Vaux said its quite normal for them to do that when fully extended and especially because they are a much shorter unit than std.
Funny thing is I changed back to my old 1.2L brakes about two weeks ago, which is when the noise stopped... Still a mistery but until it comes back im not thinking about it...
