whats that noise?
Hi guys,

Had my berlingo for about 6 months now been running perfect up untill now, got a odd noise coming from the engine, can anyone help?

Iv got a 2005 Multispace 2.0 HDI coming up to 58000 miles.

Engine sounds normal when starting up and idle on drive, but when drive/accelerate I get what I can only describe as like a worbleing/wining noise. More noticeable able when take foot off accelerator with less noise from engine. happens when accelerating and decelerating and clutch in and out. Noise has got progressively worse/louder over couple of weeks.

Anyone got any ideas what it might be?

Thanks for the response I will take a look. Other than 'looking' what other signs would you see if it was worn? would it wobble when nudged?
Been for a spin with a mate who knows a little more about bout motors and thinks it could be a wheel bearing making the noise.
A wheel bearing is like a rubble jack up the offending wheel and spin it and listen and check for play by pulling/pushing top and bottom. For the pulley have a look around the area for black rubber dust and v small metal particales. There is a few threads on here about it.
Are we there yet????? Huh

Probably something that everybody else knows, but because of the double race used in these bearings, if you put weight on n/s wheel (turn right) and noise gets worse. this can mean that o/s bearing is worn on 1 side of race, found this out after replacing n/s bearing,input shaft seal and clutch,then gearbox complete and then o/s driveshaft support bearing finally asked mechanic in family who suggested other bearing. now silence is returned, still learned a lot along the way. just hope this might save someone else some stress!

Be interested if any one could tell reason why o/s bearing might last less than 10,000 miles.

The problem was the wheel bearing, sorted little while back only just getting round to pop it on here.

@ terry so this means that the normal way of checking the bearing goes out of the window. as i have just replaced one bearing ( near side ) and my noise persists. i know this is a few month old post but its an intersting find for me Smile
