    droning noise when driving steady

    Getting a droning noise when driving a a constant/steady speed. If I put the clutch down the noise goes.

    No problems with the car itself, just concerned.

    Any Ideas

    Could be similar to the problem I got also. The noise quietens down when I apply full clutch.

    Hi M8

    This noise isnt coming from the wheels/tyres at all.

    As soon as I put the clutch down the noise goes. Not a noise!!!

    Thanks

    sounds like a dry thrust bearing in the clutch.annoying but shouldnt
    do any harm.

    Is quite noisy when Im doing 70 on the MWay

    But I can always hear it when Ihold the revs when driving

    I think I can also hear it when I just rev up and keep the revs say at 3000

    Would this still be thrust bearings ???
