deceleration noise

My mini one convertible (2004) has a vibrating noise when I get to / decelerate from about 58-59mph. It only seems to happen when in 3rd or 5th gear, strangely not in 4th gear.

At first we thought it was a wheel bearing, so had that fixed, but the noise is still there!

Does anybody have any ideas what it might be?

Thanks in advance!

Hi ya

It's a strange one a have you had the wheels balanced or just wasp front and rears around.

If it's not that check your drivers side engine mount they do fail and cause funny vibrations.
They are oil filled see if there is an oil stain or fresh oil on the chassis leg.

Post no 4

Hope this helps

just had front tyres replaced / wheels balanced on friday
since they were well down on tread depth. Wheel bearing was
done day before. Will look at engine mount today but noise
seems to be from near side to mid. Frustrating as i sadly need
to sell since buying house. Thanks for suggestion
