Alfa Romeo 147 Checking a Strange Noise

This Alfa Romeo 147 was brought into our workshop as it had a noise in the front end of the vehicle that was concerning our customer. The noise was described as only occurring when going between 60 – 70 km per hour which gave us more information to assist us in reproducing the issue.

To confirm this was the case, the wheels were swapped from left to right and we noticed that some of the noise transferred to the drivers side. The left side wheel bearing had no play but it was noisy and a replacement was recommended.
