Rotation noise
« on: April 19, 2021, 10:32:54 AM »
Mornin, I've noticed I'm getting a sort of rotation noise I think from the front nearside.It seems to be in sync with actual wheel rotation as if there's a bump on the tyre but it isn't I've changed it.It only seems to happen when it's done a couple or so miles maybe when somethings warmed up maybe.Ive jacked it up and spun the wheel and can't hear it anything catching.Problem is unless it's had a run any mechanic won't hear anything.Ive not been doing many miles so I'll see if it gets any worse but any ideas ?

CV joint or a stone in the tyre tread?
I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all.

Yep have changed the tyre so looking like the latter maybe, I'll see what the next couple of days brings.

Give it a good run out and make sure you use the brakes as much as possible. Quite possibly rust build up on disks from car not being used much

Had a wheel bearing do similar, when I got it out it had a small pit in it and was only apparent under load.

Well, I've done about 70 motorway miles in the last couple of days including 30 today and it seems to have gradually stopped.Weird, I thought it would have gotten worse if was a wheel bearing or CV joint.Maybe a good runs just sorted it out or is just waiting to surprise me at a particularly inconvenient moment which is usually the case.Watch this space.

Sounds like it was just rust build up on braking surfaces from limited use then. Hopefully thatís the end of that now

Yeah are the brakes nearly needing replacement, sometimes that can cause it too in which case maybe change the discs and pads

Or could be something that grinded down with a bit of travel
