My rear wheel bearing noise could be heard from around 10mph up to around 60 after that all the other noise blocked it out. There was no play and it past an MOT OK. I was sure it was a bearing as it was sort of a rumble. Cost me 125.40 for a new hub assembly and 43.20 to fit it all plus vat. As it was only on one side it made it easier to decide it was a bearing, if both sides where to start making a noise at the same time it would be harder to confirm I expect. Pity you cant change just a bearing instead of a whole hub it would be cheaper.

My Titanium is running on Continental 205-50-R17-93W tyres which I think are the original tyres.
On a road near where I live there is an experimental stretch of road with rumble strips in two strips about 20-30 yards long and the C max is quieter over these than my Jag was.


Wish I could help more

is this the Fleet experimental road rumble strips?
i think louder music may cure any road noise issues.
foo fighters to the rescue!!

actually wondering if the extra space, volume, of the back end of a c-max has a resonance all of its own making boomy boom boom road noise?

have gotten used to the noise but will watch this space................

I think it has a lot to do with it. I had the rear seats folded up yesterday and the amount of noise increased considerably.

I have already discussed the subject of the boot enhancing the road noise it is a large box shaped boot I have been running the car without the parcel shelf,,I'll replace it tomorrow see if that makes a difference,,,somebody stated also that they thought there was a window slightly open the wind noise is caused by the tops of the front doors sometimes its there it must depend on which way the wind is also blowing, I read about this in an article which was written by some critic. At first I thought I was hearing things but it seems it is just a design fault[img]smileys/smiley18.gif[/img]

I`ve got some sound proofing material & I`m thinking of sticking a strip to the body above the rear doors,this may give a good seal & stop the wind like noise.
Let you know how I get on.

This wind noise is caused by the tops of the front doors it is also worse depending on which way the wind direction is,,this I read in an article written by a critic this is just a design fault with the vehicle it's something you'll have to learn to live with[img]smileys/smiley12.gif[/img]

i have just taken ownership on mobility of brand new 2litre petrol auto and no road noise at all even at 110!! my lasy new c-max was noisy after 58 mph. looks like you will have to buy a new one or. someone told me it's the tyres, who knows? check tyre pressure etc

WhenI bought my 58 plate 1.8 TDCi it was running Continental 205-50-R17 93w9 same as Wokka34, I experienced the road noise from 15 mphupwards. The dealermechanic could hear the noise and checked rear bearings for wear but they were fine.They put the noise down to the low profile tyres. After 16,000 miles on the clock I had to replace the rubber ( gulp I got 42k out of a set of Michelins Pilots on my Focus!) I changed to Dunlop and have the problem still exists.
I only have the repair kit in the boot and no spare I would be keen to see if the spare would provide any extra sound absorbtion.
