Hi..thankyou but I can certainly record the noise but afraid I dont know how to send it to you. The noise is definately a loud droning sound which also seems affected by turning corners but that maybe because I am using the accelorater whilst turning the corner...sorry not I'm not being very descriptive...I need to drive 15 miles tonight then back again tomorrow. the car is already booked into get its service and MOT on tuesday can I leave it till then but still be able to do these journey's?
