Question about 1996 Audi A4
The car makes a loud humming sound from the rear. It seems loud at all speeds but even louder at around 45. But it's actually loud all the time. Had rear bearings replaced 30K ago and tires are relatively new. At driving speed if I take it out of gear the noise is still there, it doesn't change.
It's the wheel bearing. Guaranteed. Just replaced mine. Go to Audiworld tech articles for step by step instructions on how to test the wheel bearings. They must have been put in wrong last time or they just went out again.
