If you grab it at the 12 oclock and 6 oclock positions and try to pull and push on the tire/wheel, do you still get this movement? is the noise like a constant grinding or deep drone type noise? Odds are the wheel bearing is failing. You need to stop driving it immediatly and have it checked, if it is the bearing it could overheat and lock the wheel up while driving and cuase a serious accident...
Hope this answers your question
Sincerely
Roger

Testimonial: "Roger, Thank you for your responce I think you are 100 percent correct I have stopped driving the auto and will not do so until I have it repaired. I have a friend who works on cars he is a certified ASE mechanic my only concern of having him do it is that he might not have the tools are there any special tools needed? Thanks for your help "

    Roger thanks for your help do you need special tools to replace the bearing

  • Roger Rogerson Feb 07, 2012

    Hey Rob, He doesnt need anything crazy. It is a sealed hub so as long as he has the socket needed to remove the retaining nut for the front axle (goes thru the hub) the rest shouldnt be much different from any other hub he has replaced. just make sure to by the hub and not just the bearing.. The bearing requires alot of skill and specialized tools to install. The hub just bolts on...
    Let me know

I have 2002 honda civic with noise coming from rear sounds like a noisey wheel bearing have jacked up both sides and spun wheels with no sign of noise .


Check Tires for feather edge. Join your fingers together, move around the rear Tire from front to back and vice versa on both of the rear Tires and feel the smoothness. If the tread of the Tire resist the fingers in one direction and smooth on the other, then the Tires may be producing the abnormal noise.
Temporarily bring both the front Tires to the rear and rear Tires to the front on the same side, drive the car and watch the noise. If the noise begins to come from the front end, then the Tires are defective and need replacement. . If the noise still comes from the rear wheels then the rear wheel bearings need replacement.(You can also rotate the Tires in criss cross manner temporarily)
The bearings often vary noise with and without load. Be sure to troubleshoot the noise before spending money on costlier spares.

2000 Chevy Blazer 4x4...started making a horrible loud noise after my cruise control went out. I have recently replaced my hub and the brake pads and the CV axle. The noise comes and goes and only happens...


does it get louder above 45-60mph? and much quieter at low speeds. It could be wheel bearings, a rear differential or front differential. If its a grinding humming noise its wheel bearings, listenin to see if theyre coming from the front or rear, left or right, or both when your driving to know what wheel bearing are bad. If its a whinning noise, its probably a differential. check and listen to hear if its coming from the front or rear. Also, check for loose plastic around the wheels. Lastly check your tires for uneven or choppy wear. move your hands front to back on the top of the tire. does it feel really choppy and rough, maybe you just need new tires

Noise in front end when going straight or turning right. Noise stops when you turn left.


i would check the right front wheel bearing . Jack the right side up and feel the tire pull back and forth and see if the tire feels loose if it does the wheel bearing is junk. only other thing check the cvc axel.

There is a very loud humming noise coming from the front left tire! plz I await your reply. Thks.


You probably have a bad tire or wheel bearing. Either the tire is cupped causing humming noise or grease inside sealed wheel bearing is burnt up. I would take front tire and move to the back of the car. Then drive again. If noise stays the same you probably have a bad wheel bearing. If noise moves to the back of the car than you may need to replace the tire. Most likely it is the wheel bearing, I replace them all the time at my shop

whining noise coming from front passenger side tire


Did u have your wheel barrings checked.If not the do it your self its easy just jack the wheel from below the lower control arm. spin the wheel any where u like if u feel it runs roughf it could be the barring is off. or if not then check for a free play in the wheel by placing a lever below the wheel and lifting it slightly.But be careful not do drop the car on ur self..It would be better if u posted complete info about ur vehical type and made to make further notes on it tc be safe..

Nocking noise in front passenger side axle when i


I espect this either a wheel bearing our the CV joint is failing. It may possibley be a noise coming from the brake (rotor and caliper) I would recommend getting it in to a shop for a look or, if you feel up to it, get it up on a jack stand, remove that tire and give a look.
I hope this may have helped,'
