Tried a swan neck but couldn't get it - maybe it needs a longer neck?

Interested to see where this goes as my petrol Mondeo does the same at 2200 rpm.  Have been trying to get round to cleaning egr valve!

In Topic: Front Wheel Hub Nut Loose

Thanks for replies fellas, good news is that it passed MOT at 7 this morning with no advisories! I will mark it up to make a visual check defintely and is it worth putting some thread lock stuf on it? Will also get a new nut anyway. Thanks again.....

Thanks for the reply Dan but it is quite possible that the nut wasn't cranked up after the drive shaft was replaced as the car has done very few miles since then. Having read up in my Haynes manual it seems that the last part of the process is to torque up the bolt and the mechanic was rushing around answering phones etc during the job so may have overlooked this? I will keep a close eye on it and replace the hub if it re-occurs. Thanks again
