Welcome back 🙂 I still suppose its’s a wheel bearing and the work was only carried out 6 weeks ago, a great shop will assure their workmanship for ninety days. If the wheel bearing is bad on the identical facet they exchange the axle, I am 99.9% sure the mechanic precipitated the problem. Just bear in mind Candice, the squeaky wheel will get the oil, so complain a little bit 🙂 Let me know what occurs, thanks.
As for the engine and wheel bearing issues, in case your insurer hasn’t had someone inspect them since the body repairs have been achieved, push for them to get it independently assessed; that’s, not by the repairer who did the body works. If they’re refusing to evaluate it, get an independent report of your personal; if CGU are anything like the companies I’ve worked for, they most likely have a listing of most popular repairers they use, so maybe find another of them who does engine and wheel bearing work. This has the added clout of the pre-current relationship between CGU and their repairer as far as truthfullness within the matter goes.
That’s appropriate, you may’t claim towards your self, and that is pretty customary. It could be similar in case your associate had reversed into your automobile; the insurer would suggest you both lodge a declare, however we wouldn’t be seeking restoration from the one that lives with you. It just is not accomplished – consider the issues in the house it may cause! Insurance coverage companies don’t need that to blow up and then turn into a media circus with them painted as the big unhealthy company monster.
Wheel bearings are very difficult as a result of there may be an interior and outer bearing and race, but what you described sounds prefer it’s your left wheel bearing. The one solution to be completely certain is to have the wheels jacked up off the ground and jack stands below the automobile,then run the wheel speeds as much as about 40mph, stand next to the wheel as it’s spinning, you must be capable of determine which wheel bearing is faulty.
