I forgot to add. I do also get a clunk/rattle type noise that I can hear that comes from the offside near front, this only occurs when I go over a pothole or sometimes on a speed bump. Had this looked at but everything was secure and fine, even when it was taken for a test drive. All that was said was its a bit of play in the suspension.

Yeah that was probably a better description of the noise, a thudding noise on the slightest of bumps and uneven surface. Thanks for that never thought it would of been the suspension top mounts, its annoying as hell having to keep the radio or cd player on all the time, thinking either my wheels are being destroyed or they out of balance.

Thanks for the reply.

Yeah I'm just finding out what the awful road noise is. Its either down to the alloys, or the tyres which are Goodyear Vector 4 Seasons. Sounds like a wheel beating noise, which I have heard Goodyear's suffer with out of shape tyres, but not on this type of tyre.

Had all four wheels re-balanced today. Solved the shaking steering wheel problem, and is more comfortable, but apparently the wheels are buckled so he put them at the back and best ones on the front. Now looking at the alloys I cannot see any buckle on the rims or alloy. The noise is still there which is like a beating noise mentioned. I'm now either putting this down to either tyres out of shape or could be that last wheel bearing is on its way out which is I am guessing will be (car done 46K) soon but until I hear the horrible whining noise of a wheel bearing shall not change it until then.

Well if it is a wheel bearing the only left to replace will be the o/s/f as that is the only left to change. It must be in its early stages if its about to go again, because like I have said recently had a MOT done and the other three wheel bearings have been replaced. Just annoying that I bought the car when everything needs replacing either due to it coming to the end of its life or age of the car! And this is a car that was regularly serviced at a ford garage as it says in the log book. :angry:
