Your thoughts please

Hi forum,

I pick up my new (2004) Cooper S today. On driving it home I noticed a droning noise coming from the rear left corner. I'm convinced its the bearing.

I bought from a Stratone garage ( main dealer) who gave me a 3 month warranty ( I know I will have paid for this in the price of the car, so not really free) . Now I know that this would normally be wear and tear item. But since I have only had the car 12 hours do you think they should fix this free of charge?

What are your thoughts/ advice?

many thanks

I would imagine that the dealership would be obliged to repair this free of charge
