And then in a change to the advertised programme, I had to pop in and visit my petrol head uncle over the festive period.
He claims to be an enthusiast but has a manual Merc SLK and a Skoda Octavia Turbo nutter bastard. Anyhoo, we made all the right noises over each others cars and then as I was driving off, he flagged me down to tell me of a horrible grating noise from the n/s/r wheel. It didn't do it again & was silent all the way home...
Tuesday I was to take my accountant out for xmas drink/lunch. I got myself dressed smartly, blazer, cravat, panama - you know the sort of thing us proper Jaaaag drivers wear and the car made the most dreadful scraping noise from the n/s/r. Dressed as I was, I had no choice but to go in scruffy the scarecrow. Today, dressed more casually I took the wheel off - absolutely nothing apparently wrong.
I am suspecting a trapped & flung out pebble/stone?
Anything else I should think about?
