2002 Citroen Berlingo Repair Question
2002 berlingo 170000 miles with growling noise sounding like wheel bearings .Both front wheel bearings and drive shafts replaced.Noise gets worse as engine warms up. Gearbox works fine noise persists whether in drive or coasting in neutral or in gear and
2 things stand out as clues to me. the fact that 1 wheel bearing is loose, and the sound modifys in a turn. these sound related. most bad wheel bearings change tune in a turn. and a loose bearing could be noisy. i had 1 that was loose which i thought was bad so never checked it. if i had re tightened right away i may have saved it.

Yes ....I agree but the loose bearing has been changed twice! and both times shown play only after being refitted .Drive shafts have been changed and offside bearing shows no play .I am replacing hub with a good second hand part...so will see what that does. That noise is still there and getting gradually worse when driven on road and I would swear it to be wheel bearing. .Many thanks for all your help....Cheers!

Wheel bearing issues should show up during testing with the wheels off the ground. Raise the wheels and spin the tires while running your hand across the tread. It should be pretty smooth, with no really noticeable high or low spots. If you notice high and low spots, you most likely have a shock problem that has become a tire wear issue.
You Guys are spot on ! It was a wheel bearing .You saved me so much hassle . Many thanks for all your sound advice....wOBBLY
