Title: wheel bearings
Post by: rsweeney on 13:37, Fri 15 April 2011
hey guys , renaults up and running insured it for a year today! only thing thats annoying me is when i drive there is a noise from the back of the car, the faster you drive the faster the sound gets. does this mean the wheel bearings need replacing, if not what else could it be ?

new rear bearings needed fella

if your pads and discs need changing best do them together with the bearings as the new wheel bearings need to be pressed into the discs

Rear bearings should be easy enough to source from any motor factor place, they may even be same as clio as they use drums also.

Not too sure mate, i recon gt turbo discs will have different design bearing compared to the campus drum but its worth checking
