    Why I hate the snow...

    Skided sideways yesterday for about 10ft into the kerb.

    The rear wheels is fooked and the front wheel is badly scuffed.







    I have swapped the rear tyre with the spare in the boot. Took it for a drive and it seemed OK until a hoover like sound started coming from the back, im guessing its the wheel bearing thats gone.

    Its going to the garage this week for a service and i'll get them to give it the once over.

    If you've hit it hard enough to fubar the bearing you'll need the alignment checked on the rear.

    You could have bent any number of suspension components.

    If there was enough energy to do that to the wheel, there was enough to bend lots of other bits too.
