Hi Guys
Not been back long and my long term plans for the Tf have just taken a very big downward turn after her to g the head gasket,water pump and timing belt done the cars now developed a strange stable noise from the drivers side rear wheel.
After having it looked at advised possible new clutch and bearing not an exspense I was planning for plus some suspension work also pushing the repair bill close to a £1000 which I just can't justify it is a shame though the car does look great otherwise.

the clutch is on the passenger side, not the drivers side. Who said it was clutch noise? id get a 2nd opinion if I were you. Most of us on here do our own repairs, it keeps the costs down and you get to know your MG very well! Ive had mine for 4 years and Ive had Russell do the HG - as hes local and I know him from my sons TF160. Other than that, Ive done brakes/discs and rear-calipers, exhaust system- manifold and rear section/box, HRW, Heater resistor bank, Undersealed it fully, painted the subframes with hammerite, 2 batteries (lots of short stop/starts to station) and new downsteam lamda- as the old one was shorting out giving me hell, new carpets, and annual full engine service/filters. Thats about it. Its been very reliable. I know it very well.

Hi
Its all started after having head gasket replaced along with timing belt it would not be ethical to mention names but they have tried to help which I am thankful for and offered to look at possible gear box oil and clutch fluid levels.
I did have a hose burst day after I picked up the car which is part of my not really feeling I can trust the car which sounds daft I know but the noise it makes like a warble around the rear wheel area.
Checks of alternator and timing belt all checked out so after depressing the clutch some not all of the noise cleared hence the diagnosis.

If there is a constant sound from the area of the rear driver's wheel, even when the car is at a standstill, it could be that the cambelt is tensioned too tightly. This happened to me (there is also a regular but low mechanical knocking if you listen very carefully). Once the tensioner is eased off to the correct tension, all is OK again.
