    I'm hoping that one of the experts here can help me!

    I have a 19xx model 605 with the 2.0litre engine. Recently, it's started to
    make a rumbling sound from one of the wheels. This occurs only above about
    40mph, and decreases if I turn slightly to the left. My first thought was
    that it was a worn wheel bearing, but I've checked the wheels and none of
    them have any play.
    I've put the car on axle stands and run it to "above 40mph", and didn't hear
    the noise - or at least, not as noticeable. I've also swapped each wheel in
    turn for the spare, running it to 40mph+ on the road each time, and that
    made no difference.

    Can anyone offer me a suggestion as to what the problem might be, please?

    Thanks in advance,

    -Phil Pace.

    Hi Phil,
    I don't know if the game found in a work bearing can be felt by hand shaking
    I'd say wheel bearing.

    Hi Guys,

    First off let me say that I know nothing specific to the 605; however . .
    .. if the wheel bearings are proved good, then does the 605 have a bearing
    on one of it's drive shafts (Thinking of my old 205) if that is on its way
    out it may give a similar rumble.

    Good luck

    Hi Phil,

    Don't know if this applies to your problem, but I had
    a similar experience.

    My 605 was also rumbling, sometimes from the front right,
    sometimes from both "wheels"...
    I got new anti-roll bars and that fixed the problem.
    This is a common problem on 605:s since they "eat" the
    front suspension linkages rather heavily compared to eg a 405...
