Hi all.

If anyone could help me it would be much appreciated!

I have just bough my first Ford. Its a 2003 Mondeo Zetec S-TDCI. It seems like a great
car and ive read nothing but good reviews on it but there is a rumbling from the back as i drive
along. It doesnt matter how fast im going and it sounds like its coming from the suspension on the driver rear side. It seems to creek as the wheels go over bumps in the road, even just rolling along.

Has anyone had any experience with this?

Rumbling as you drive usually means the wheel bearing has gone. Jack the car and check the wheel for side to side and top to bottom movement

I'd say bearings too.
Rotate the wheel by hand and listen for a crunching sound.
