    easy to find out. Jack the wheel up. Push pull the wheels keeping your hands on the up 12 oclock and the other at the 6pm position. If you feel any play tis your bearings ( car) :smashin:

    Apparently not a wheel bearing had a uneven tyre changed on the offside rear.This might give a clue to the problem?.Possibly a suspension fault.Garage i took it to seemed baffled.Sods law when the mechanic took it out ,no noise.Might have to bite the bullet and take it to ford- £70 an hour :eek: :eek:

    Is the noise only on hard turning?.. or whenever you turn... it could be the Power steering pump.. the bearings might be on their way out in that.

    Normally on a 90 degree turn but it does sound like its coming from the rear.Then again these things can be misleading.

    the problem is with noises.. that unless you hear them in person... it's very hard to tell what it is.
