back wheel wobble

hi, any ideas what might cause my back wheel to wobble, with the wheel off the ground there is side to side movement,all gears select ok and no noise from the bearings, have put a new hub and matched cone on but its no different. Could it be the hub bearing or end plate loose. cheers.

Re: noisey 4th gear

i would say its a patern part, but new, even the geezer in the scooter shop said he has never heard anything like this noise before, thought maybe he has broke a gear tooth??.
