Re: Rubbing noise when driving 2005 Clio

Something which might sound obvious, but is worth checking is the distance between the tyre and the wheelarch at 3 reference points; tyre-back bumper, tyre-top of wheelarch, tyre-front end of wheelarch (do this for both sides & compare) and this will help indicate if the wheels/rear suspension have been knocked out of shape.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
