Clio front wheel drone - JonL
Hi all, my Wife's 98 Clio 1.2 has developed a serious noise coming from the front (drivers side) wheel. I would describe it as a rumble/drone and is worsened by turning the steering wheel to the left. The car has done 65K and is otherwise very reliable. Could this be a worn wheel bearing and if so are they expensive to fix?

Thanks

Jon

It's the drivers side wheel bearing. When you turn the wheel to the left, you are placing more load on the off side bearing, so it groans a bit louder. It's a very common failiure with the Renault Clio. It shouldn't be a very expensive job, you can entrust any good workshop with it.
