Droning noise from front offside wheel, i think.

My X-type has a loud droning noise that occurs at any speed, under power or
not, the only consistent thing about it is that any pressure on the brake
pedal and it goes for the duration of the pedal.



The noise is intermittent and not dependant on cornering!



Any ideas?

Sounds like a wheel bearing to me, get it checked sooner rather than later.

A wheel bearing noise will change under cornering as the load increases or
decreases- try swapping your tires around- you may have a faulty radial
belt.

Thanks, I don't think it's the bearing as it was checked when it first
started and no fault was found!

I will try the wheel swap, I have also been told it could be the pads moving
slightly and rubbing when they do and that 45deg chamfer will fix the issue!
and views on this?

I will try the wheel swap at the weekend and let you know how it goes.

Thanks

Re: Droning noise from front offside wheel, i think.

Adrian, In my opinion , if the noise was not notices at startup but
prevalent after a run, then it could very easily be a worn or ungreased
bearing, it doesn't;t take much time to loose the grease for the front at
all..It wouldn't hurt to pump some fresh in there just to see..Tires can
certainly growl or make noises you are not used to hearing...Just my two
cents worth..
