Hi, first post on here so be gentle. I have an 02 mini one that has a rumble from the front drivers side. It gets louder when turning left and quieter turning right or going around roundabouts. It also increases with road speed. Have had a look in a haynes manual that says it will 'tick' when turning if its a cv joint. It doesnt 'tick'. It also says the support bearing could cause the noise- my local bmw service department had never heard of a support bearing, but wanted £600 to do the cv joint. Can anyone help with a diagnosis please.
