    Noise at 40mph?

    Hi,

    Been getting a funny noise from front RHS wheel area. My 57plate 1.7SRi is fine up until about 40mph, then i start to hear what can only be described as a whirring noise and I can feel it through the steering wheel slightly. Before and after 40mph it is fine, cannot hear anything unusual.

    Any ideas what this could be as it's getting irritating now?

    Thanks in advance

    It sounds like a wheel bearing to me, but one of the more technical guys will be along to suggest alternatives soon

    If it is that, would it be covered under warranty? Cheers
