Re: Puzzling noise Scenic Rx-4

Repairing an existing centre bearing using polyurathane rubber will probably be too costly - a lot much more than a new centre bearing. I did manage to source a supplier of centre bearings for my Trekka but the asking price was far too high at 96 pounds each plus VAT. The Merc centre bearing was a lot cheaper and will work fine, most likely outlasting the car. UJs don't cost much, around 10 pounds or less each for the type that has grease nipple fitted. The only real problem is to cut circlip grooves.
Currently in tolsen's garage:
Trekka 1.9 DCI, Smart Cabrio Cdi (65 - 85 MPG) & Ford Transit 2.2 Duratorq TDCi
