As a biker gone soft, taken to, but aint used to these little cars.

I've got a wierd noise coming from n/s front wheel under acceleration from dead stop, disappears about 10 to 15 mph, sounds like bearing grinding but no play there.

Got a bumping on n/s rear on speed bumps etc: heard say its a common fault.

Any ideas out there !!!

thinking of taking my 4 into 1 can off bike, and sticking on car ( kidding ! )
bet it would make lovely sound tho.


cheers

Noise at nearside front is the gearbox mount. It will have failed allowing the metal part of the mount to make contact with the floorpan. Replace.

Rear arm bushes are known for noises as are damper bushes. Disconnect the dampers one by one and bounce the car. If no noise, then arm bushes it is.

Cheers
