    @chris-rs380

    Thanks for your in-depth reply. A unique case indeed and glad you got it sorted mate!!

    @dogbone

    Yes it is possible to have a noisy wheel bearing with no play!! The noise and roughness come first and you’ll only get play when it is really F**KED!!

    2 things to check mate…..

    Find a quiet section of road where there’s nobody about and you can travel at around 50 mph and gently snake from left to right, you should hear the bearing/drone sound change as the weight is transferred on and off the suspect bearing!!

    Then jack it up and spin the wheel by hand while holding on to the spring, like I mentioned and you will feel the roughness transferred through the spring!! Hope that helps mate!!

    Cheers, Marc.

    I see you have all the essential bearing removal tools at hand….

    If the Safety Man on my Rig came into the W/shop and saw that set up he’d have a heart attack, lol!!

    Cheers, Marc.

    @brembo I’ve tried the sway from left to right, will look for a quiet bit of road and try again.  Cheers

    Most of the wheel bearings I fail on mot are for ‘roughness on rotation’, bearing in mind mot minimum standards are completely different to service standards 🙄

    Noise might be tyre related too. I had very similar issues, swore it was bearing then changed tyres and problem solved. The tyre was non-concentric with uneven wear (not the RS though). Might be shocks on way out, still checking…

    Love the bearing ‘extractor’! I had some our guys struggling like hell to get some bronze bushings out last week. I couldn’t get to site for covid regs but I ended up getting parts pressed out at a specialist. Then when I see photos of the job, the bushes were french keyed! 🤦‍♂️
