earlier today i noticed a buzzing noise appear whilst i was driving

it only appears when the car is moving over 40mph.

it sounds like its coming from the exhaust side (left) according to the kids.

it sounds a little like a 50cc motorbike behind the car -and doesnt stop when i dip the clutch or change gear - its really annoying.

the only way of stopping it is slowing down.

anyone come across this ?

took it to a peugeot dealer, and an independant garage in Nottingham.

Peugeot dealer very helpful - drove the car for me and located exactly the faults

the independant place also drove the car and heard the noise, but insisted the rear wheel bearing had gone - based on the noise coming from what he thought was the rear - but once the car was jacked up and the wheels spun it was obviously the same wheel the peugeot dealer had located.


1 - off side front bearing gone
2 - near side front roll bar link rod faulty.


Peugeot total price - £329 inc vat
Independant price - £208 inc vat.

are the parts likely to be ok from an independant garage etc ?


thanks

Result!:thumb:

The technical term is droning/whirring!:nod:

When i got my transit it was noisy as hell at about 40mph and the steering was quite violently shaking,i thought, wheel balance, ball joints, brakes.
The tester passed it no problems.
I got round to changing the bits that needed doing and i got to th o/s/f wheel bearing which should never have passed the mot!
