Could it just be my wheel bearing?
« on: Jun 30, 2013, 01:43AM »
My Car makes a funny noise, only when its been driven tho. i cant describe the noise but it sounds like its coming from the back but i belive that it is coming from the front of the car. could it be my wheel bearing? or could it be something else. its a 1990 model pintara front wheel drive and it was made in september! any pointers on what should be checked and replaced would be super helpful! just dont want to go spending a fortune when it could be something totally different.

thanks in advanced

Near impossible to help without either a recording of the noise or some more information.

It could be wheel bearing, there could also be a stone stuck in the brake shield, pads could be low etc etc
