Hi,

I wonder if anyone can help.

I have a 2000 Reg Fiesta Finesse. Pretty basic but has power steering. Recently, when pulling away, there has been an odd noise that sounds like a flat tyre going round and round as you speed up (its not a flat tyre) As you get faster the noise speeds up with the car and when you reach about 20mph it fades away.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what it could be?

Ive looked under the front of the car and in both front wheel arches and cannot see anything loose.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Jon

Could be start of wheel bearing failure? Does it come back with hard cornering?
Normal places to look are suspension parts, bushes and wheel bearings. Also could be something stuck in your caliper although usually that gives a squeel.
