Thought I was all done. Been driving gently around town, bedding in the new clutch. Head to open road and it's clunk, clunk over 30, when I take my foot off the gas No clunks going straight on at steady speed or when accelerating, but clunks when decelerate and these ceased when braking! So the pads in calliper are straightening the brake disc? Found a loose locking wheel nut offside front. They are a pain to make tight with the key. Checked and tightened all the nuts. 2 others were not fully torqued either... Dirt on the hub? Sure I tightened them all once wheels were back on the floor after the clutch saga.. Noise improved a bit but still present. . Checked the calliper bolts, fine.. Spun the front nearside wheel by hand, no rumble or grind. Tried the other 3 in turn, just brake noise from discs. Grabbed front nearside wheel at 12 and 6 o clock and tried to rock, no play. Tried 9 and 3 clock positions - it moves, but is that just the play in the steering? Tried 7.30 and 1.30 positions - faint clunk. So front wheel bearing. Think it must be 24 years old. Last time poor tracking was nearside bearing and I had to get new hub too. Hubnut off and strut off, right?
