Disastrous Day

So just like any other Monday morning, jump in the RRS for my 5 am commute (120 mls), to Cambridge, A1, A14, M11 etc. Alls well until I pull into work, and a 90degree left hand bend followed by a 90 degree right handler, nothing faster than 10-15 mph, and a horrible grinding noise from OS front corner, but no warning lights, quick look underneath but nothing obvious. Lunchtime a much closer look reveals nothing, a 10 minute test drive and all seems well...
4.30 and the trip back North beckons, 15 mins in another strange noise, this time a rubbing sound, next lay-by I have another good search around but nothing, noise disappears again, another 5 minutes and the dashboard is like a Christmas tree, no EBD, No park brake, cruise control not available, forward control disabled, no terrain response available DSC not available, all amber lights, but a distinct squeak, only audible with the window down has definitely took root. A couple of call to LRMD and instructed to limp home but stop if any warning lights turn red.
Now this is a 68k, MD serviced 2010 MY RRS, TDV6, last serviced at 62k, MoT’d in Nov 17 and I do have a warranty...but any thoughts what it might be, easy / simple fix, engine and drivetrain unaffected, suspension won’t change from normal “for safety”...I know there’s a default for quite a few systems if just one is detected faulty, it’s the noise that worried me, and seemed like the brake or wheel got incredibly hot...gonna try and sort tomorrow at Stratstone Nottingham or Eppetstone LR...how’ve has quickest response...!

Grinding noise and hot wheel sounds as if could be a brake issue, possibly pad/disk metal to metal contact, seized caliper etc. they do have pad wear sensors but only one side front and rear and honestly can't remember which side it is fitted on the front. Not sure about the electrical issues unless being possibly a brake fault that could affect the ABS which in turn causes other faults to appear as the vehicle do have some electrical peculiarities but that is only a complete guess.

Just had look at own car, sensor would appear to be on N/S.

Cheers

Mystery Solved....

OK - Epperstone came up trumps, it needed a new O/S Front Wheel bearing, being sorted today...don't know cost yet and "might be covered by warranty" we'll see ? Whistle

An hours labour and £140 for the bearing (decent Timken one), so around £220 from an indi.

But as you went to a stealership my guess is going to be £500+ Rolling Eyes
