    Possibly wheel bearing.

    If you're considering buying the car why dont you pay for an AA/RAC inspection? They'll tell you exactly what it is.

    ^^ yup, about 1. 1-5 k overpriced IMHO as the seller doesnt seem to have taken the 20% CATD price drop into consideration

    I got mine done for £80 but probably looking at over a ton in most places. But alignment won't solve that problem
