Hi all. recently reversed my 6n over a log that I was using to chock the wheels on my sloped driveway, wedging it between my front wheel and the inside of the radiator. Took it for a drive and noticed a growling noise that appears around 30mph and keeps up all the way to 90 , and keeps growling even in neutral or with the clutch in. I don’t know whether this is related to the log incident as I hadn’t driven the car for a while before, but it’s really annoying and now seems to pull to the left a bit when driving. I have checked for play in the front wheels, there is none, there’s a tiny bit on the back but the back wheels also spin way more freely than the fronts, don’t know if this normal? The noise doesn’t seem to differ either way I steer the car, I’ve read about tires making noises like this but I don’t see them being this loud. Any insight would be much appreciated! cheers
Hello once again, iv had new wheel bearings and my old hubs pressed in my coilovers, the outer part of the bearing is nice and tight in the strut but one of the hubs can be pulled about 3mm out there's loads of play but I can't see what would be wrong, I was told that on the hub there was signs of wear and maybe even grinding. I'm wondering if there is a certain way they should have been done if not then I know it's just the hubs are screwed.
I've had problem after problem with my little bready and now the outer race of the wheel bearing is stuck in the strut! I've taken every step according to the Haynes manual but the bearing was in such a bad condition it fell apart on the way out:( does se anybody know a method to remove it? It's only about 1mm thick so there isn't a lot of room to work with ive tried heating the strut and giving it some hard hits through a screwdriver with a hammer but no avail! I love my breadvan but hate spending money thanks in advance, barney
