Re: How to replace Fiat Grande Punto Rear wheel bearings (rear disc versions)
I've been driving a Grande Punto 1.9 diesel and putting up with an awful drone coming from the rear which goes up and down with vehicle speed. This makes me think it's one (or both) of the rear bearings. It hits a particularly loud resonance at about 85kph.
I replaced both the rear bearings last week with new ones and followed your guide. I jumped in for a test drive expecting silence like a Rolls. The noise is exactly the same.
The only thing I didn't do was check the torque settings for the retainer nut which I'm pretty sure is 280Nm. I did up the nuts as tight as they were when I undid them, which was F*tight.
I don't understand. The bearings are new. What else could be causing a loud droning noise from the rear if its not wheel bearings?
