Re: Clio II - Loud ear hurting noise - HELP please!

If a bearing is rough you'll hear it when you spin the wheel. It's hard to describe it sounds like er....a rough bearing! While you have it jacked up inspect the tyres both sides and the tread; as they spin look for obvious eccentricities.You may as well since you have the opportunity. I can't say it's usual for the noise to disappear, but then that would apply to any bearing noise unless the noise is moving out of your hearing range or it's some sort of resonance. Is it changing pitch when you change speed?
