I am discounting CV joints due to low mileage, but as the car was standing for the better part of five years prior to purchase by me, could it be simplt bearings requiring clean & regrease?
I have to ask these questions as it means a jaunt to the garage as I unable to do the work I once used to do. Old age sucks.
Thanks for any help.
Folks with regard to my query regarding the '98 Clio auto; I think my description of the 'whine' is incorrect.
It's a humming sound; consistant from approx 20mph upward. Jonesy
