Hey Guys!

Thanks for all the sound advice.

I really hope that it is not a wheel bearing as I only had it serviced and MOT'd yesterday.

I have been driving a lot today (with the radio off) and I am now starting to wonder if it is in fact the exhaust in some way? The noise gets louder the faster you go and there is no quietening of the engine as you change from 4th to 5th. Maybe it is something vibrating or reverberating or something?? It doesn't sound like a hole in it.....very perplexing!!!!

Thanks for the Vaseline advice on the sunroof Ralph. Mine has been creaking for ages now, especially if it is warm or hot. So now with this other noise I can barely hear myself think... Do you mean to put the Vaseline on to the rubber seal or the edge of the glass or does it matter? Will the Vaseline damage the seal? Are these silly questions?
