I've had a rubbing noise that appears to be coming from the front
nearside (passenger side) wheel area when driving. It's more noticable
at higher speeds, say above 40mph.
I don't seem to be able to feel any vibrations in the steering wheel or
It had a CV boot replaced a few months ago, which previous to fitting
was causing a dry loud rubbing noise that was felt in the steering wheel
- again at higher speeds only. This noise appeared again, I examined the
area, and it appeared they only put a thimble's worth of grease in, I
then packed it with grease and the noise went away.
The noise being experienced currently isn't very loud, and doesn't sound
too violent. It had a wheel bearing fitted just over 10k miles ago, and
this noise is nothing like it was when the wheel bearing was shot.
Any ideas? I've been told by many that it is unlikely to be the
driveshaft, as that normally gives a 'knocking' noise.
