    Default Hit Kerb. Now I have a noise.

    Hi guys. I hit a kerb with my left front wheel and also with my left back wheel.

    No, I wasn't drifting. There was a square corner of the kerb sticking out and I hit it.

    Now I have a fairly loud noise on the expressway, above around 100km. It is kind of a hum that rises and falls. You can't hear it around town so the wheel alignment bloke was not able to help. I tried tapping the brakes, changing into neutral, and putting on a different set of wheels. The noise stayed the same.

    It is either the bearing or the drive shaft I suppose. I cannot detect free play in the bearing, but why would this sort of knock damage the drive shaft?

    Has anyone hit a kerb in one of these cars? What was the result?

    Thanks Guys

    Have you damaged the tyre? Depending on what you hit, how hard and the angle of impact you may have pinched the sidewall or caused a split between the tread and the carcass. Put your spare on and see what happens.

    More than likely a wheel bearing, was probably already worn and the kurb just finished it off

    We sell a lot of these for 380's as well as for some reason the Outlanders as well

    I definitely pinched the tyre, I destroyed the left front tyre and wheel and the back tyre on the same side.

    It is probably the wheel bearing is it? Ok, thanks Madmagna.
