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

Bearing in mind (if you'll pardon the pun) that wheel bearings are a common fault on Clios (maybe on other cars too?) so look for the obvious and most likely things first.
There should be no perceptible play when you rock the wheel top to bottom,it's a bit more difficult but not impossible to tell when you rock side to side because you have to differentiate movement in the steering components from movement in the bearing. Like I said, on rotation you will hear it- rough and rumbly (is that a word?) compared to a good one.
