Wheel Bearing

Hi all. My Evoque has done just over 42000 miles but has developed a very worrying noise. It was a kind of low level grinding, like something rubbing, but not linked to speed, along with a throbbing which was linked to speed. In addition, there was a lot of 'clunkiness' (knocks, etc) being transmitted through the pedals. I took it into LR (I have an extended warranty) and they said that it is a worn offside front wheel bearing. It is being replaced in a week or so which should cure the problem. I will keep you posted whether it does, but in the meantime if anyone else has a similar noise, have LR check the bearings.

RE: Wheel Bearing

Make sure that if it isn’t the bearing that they resolve the issue as it could be other things than a wheel bearing

Now driving a 2015MY RRSport L494 in Corris Grey with Ebony/Lunar interior and Ebony Headliner - pimped up with 22" wheel and polished stainless steel skid plates from and rear.
Gone to a new homes - Zanzibar 5 Door Dynamic with contrast, lux, plus and intelligence packs

Still on my drive - 1996 TDi300 Defender 90 County HT that has been made into a SW.

RE: Wheel Bearing

Had the bearing replaced last week and all the noises have gone. I will keep an ear out for anything else, but it appears that if you are having the same problem as I had then a bearing replacement could be the solution.
