  1. Strange noise! Anyone able to help?

    Thanks mrtn. That was my first suspicion but as the tester said it wasn’t I thought I might be something else. I’ll jack it up and check the wheel. Thanks for the reply!
  2. Hi all, This seems to be a great place for all things Connect. I have a 2007 T200 and it has developed a few problems of late. If any of you knowledgeable people would be able to shed any light on it I would be most grateful! I'm getting a rumbling noise that seems to be coming from the front near side. It starts as soon as I get above around 5 mph and it gets louder as speed increases. It gets so loud at 60+ that its hard to hold a conversation with a passenger! If I steer ever so slightly to the left, it seems to stop? I mentioned this to the tester at my last MOT thinking it would be a wheel bearing. When I collected the vehicle he said that the bearing was fine but I had a mishapen tyre. When I got the tyre sorted the fitter said the tracking was well out and showed me the offending tyre; it was in tatters on the inside edge and had very uneven wear (worn more on the inner edge). He sorted the tracking and fitted a new tyre but the problem persists. Now, I know next to sod all about cars/vans and have no clue as to what it could be. I am wary of being ripped off so wanted to know what it could possible be? That way at least I can go armed with a little bit of info when I take it in somewhere. Many thanks for reading this far and any advice etc. would be much appreciated! Cheers all, Phil

    Hi all, Had my Connect for just over a year and love it; what a workhorse! Going to be asking a few questions about an issue I have with it so hopefully you guys/gals can point me in the right direction? Cheers Phil
