If it's a heavy clicking sound , usually a driveshaft c/v joint needing replaced .

Check to make sure you don't have a stone in your tyre!

Hi thanks all. Can hear about three taps per revolution of wheel at say 8-10 mph. Not audible at higher speed. Got it going up on garage lift next week. Will be back with the result. Thanks.

Latest update on my zafira is, the garage could not find any problem with the car. Car was taken for test drive and inspected all round. Thanks
