  1. colc

    Yes please, if still available

  2. I'd have set fire to the ungrateful bastard about 3 pages back............­čś▒
  3. Also going to fit new ball joints at the same time.....parts for these are pretty cheap, and it seems daft not to replace as much as possible when things are apart.
  4. Now fairly convinced this is a driveshaft issue..................we will see.......! Think you're right................it's a driveshaft issue...........coming apart Monday.
  5. It's a constant game of catch up........manufacturers introduce some new fangled thing, that if it goes wrong, only they can fix it.....until someone comes up with a far cheaper way of doing it..........manufacturers then invent ANOTHER new fanged thing..ad infenitum..........
  6. Well...you fix one problem, and another rears it head. After sorting out the disintegrating rear brakes, I thought I'd solved the horrendous droning noise....it would appear not ? Noise seems to be coming from passenger side front, and these are the symptoms. Fine for about 15 to 20 minutes, then this fairly unpleasant drone starts, now pretty convinced it's coming from the left hand front. It's not engine or gearbox noise, because if you turn off engine and coast, the noise is still there. seems to be speed and gradient dependent , and also worse on some road surfaces than others.
  7. Remarkable what you've achieved there with perseverance and lateral thinking.................
  8. Err....no....problem solved............took one wheel off to discover new brake shoes, wheel cylinders and other shiny stuff. Spiffing.............. Removed other wheel, drum came off with a fight, to reveal very old brake shoes, in rather more parts than was originally intended. Found three boxed sets of brake shoes in the boot, one box containing only one shoe.. Conclusion........someone decided to do the rear shoes, did one side, then couldn't get the drum off...and gave up. The friction material separated from the shoes, which was floating about in the drum, causing the intermitt
  9. A chain link wheel in a camper van must be a first.............
  10. No it won't.....................
  11. There's no rubbing....I think the noise is being generated by the change in geometry in the rear beam due to worn bushes causing the tyres to howl occasionally...............might be due simply to tracking [here's hoping !]
  12. "Find a Renault 11 turbo"........is that next to the "Unicorns and hen's teeth" shelf ??
  13. I think that the "bushes in rear beam " theory is what's causing the problem..........it's causing the toe angle of the axle to change, which is causing the rear tyres to scrub, and that's the howling noise...........
