Just after some advice on where to start. i have noticed a bearing type noise in the front right of my GU, it gets very loud after 70kph and is louder when the wheel is turned right or left around corners. Im thinking wheel bearing but just after your thoughts before i pull the front end apart.

Also i have noticed no.4 and 6 injectors are weaping a bit down the engine block, any ideas of the best way to fix them or do you just have to replace them ?

Thanks in advance for any help.

jack up the front of the vehicle on the side the noise is and hold the wheel at top and bottom and try to move back and forward and if there is movement then yes wheel bearings and also spin slowly when off ground to see if noise still persists, are you hubs unlocked?? best way to fix injectors is clean up area of weep and check to see if the weep is from the body itself or the top rail if the body then get injectors serviced or replaced otherwise can just change the copper washer on the tops of the rail.

they seat on a falt surface, inside the injector hole when you pull it out there will be 2 washers in the hole you can buy all 3 washers in a kit for them from your local injection shop but for the hassle of ulling them it would be easier to take it to a specialist and they can then pin point you problem, if your meaning the plugs not seated then that would not be the case as they dont seat so to speak on anything and are in the precomp chamber just threaded and wind down as far as you can go and also could not imagine diesel getting out there, could be coming off return on top rail??
