Corsa 1.4T wheel bearing noise still under warranty

Post by jaysen » Sun Feb 25, 2018 10:22 am

My Corsa has developed a possible wheel bearing noise on the rear. Its only done 20k, I'm sure that shouldn't happen within 20 months from new. Would this be a warranty Job, my 3 years finishes mid may !!!.

More likely rear tyres...once they get to a certain wear level they can start to drone...

As above.

Take it hard round a roundabout or in an empty car park until you get the noise, then see if it's still there when you straighten up. If it's not, then it's probably a bearing, if it is, change your tyres!

Need to get mine in for a check on this, it's always be noisy on the road which I've put down to tyres. But could well be bearings. Worth getting them to check before warranty is up towards back end of this year. :lol:

Had mine in today. BOTH front wheel bearings shot at just over 17k miles :lol: both changed under warranty, even though there is only around 4 month of it left.

Every Corsa D and E i've ever had has had the wheel bearings go at some point. It's part of the package. If it's in warranty period get it booked in. my NSF needs doing, got it booked in for next week. Our Auto isn't however showing any signs, yet!
