Re: Clio bearings seem fine could it be the brakes ?

Sometimes resting your finger tips on the suspension spring whilst spinning the wheel you can feel a reasonace if the bearing is faulty.

You could also try using an engineers stethoscope - they can be bought for around a fiver. A very handy tool to have around - recently I used mine to detect a faulty bearing in my central heating boiler.
