    I have a problem almost identical...BUT i have yet to notice any difference in tone when i turn but the humming/rubbing noise is more noticeable when i sit in the drivers side.

    The sound tends to happen around 40KM plus and when steady driving on a clear road... hope its the same deal...

I am sure this is a worn wheel bearing, the giveaway is the sound change when you turn.

My Dodge Grand Caravan is making a humming noise as you accelerate, while turning left it stops but gets worse while turning right. I replaced the left front wheel hub and no improvement, I need help


if hub bearing replacement did not fix the noise

when noises are on left and right turns
that has CV joints /drive shafts
would say they are the issue
replace both sides

and replace the left hand hub bearing at the same time

Left front wheel noise


When driving steer right and left if the noise gets louder when doing that, you have a bad wheel bearing and need to replace it.

My AVEO 2006 is making a humming noise, coming out in the middle engine compartment of the front or dashboard area. It start to be hear when speed goes between 55 kph and 80kph, and sounds like it is


The most common reason for a humming noise in the front area of your car would be a wheel bearing noise. I would start by having the wheel bearings checked.

There are two ways to check the bearings, one would be to jack wheels of the ground and check for free play in wheels, the other would require having a tech test drive the car, a good test drive by a tech can tell you if it is a wheel bearing problem.

A wheel bearing noise will get louder as the speed increases and the tone will change if the wheel is turned left or right.
You can try this test yourself, get car up to speed of noise and then listen as you turn wheel to left and then right and if the tone changes then i would suspect the bearing and next step is to find out which one, this would need to be done on a lift. good day

There is a humming sound coming from the front end of my 1999 oldmobile alero. Only happens when the car is moving. I dont hear itat idle or even when pushing the gas at idle. could it be my transmission...


Hello! If the humming noise is speed related(gets louder as vehicle speed increases)check front wheel bearings. If the noise goes away when turning one way or the other then it will most likely be in the front wheel bearing. If you turn the wheel(while moving)to the right and the noise goes away it is on the right side. If you turn the wheel to the left and the noise goes away its on the left side. Hope this information helps!

Humming sound gets louder the faster i go 05 scion tc


Rather than guess witch one it is( sounds to me to be a wheel bearing or hub bearing) just chg. out both, but if it gets louder when you make a right turn i would say its the left side sense when you make a right turn you are putting more forse and weight on that side.

Wierd noise


Sounds like a wheel bearing going, or gone. Possible tire/alignment, but more than likely, wheel bearing. You going to fix, or have it fixed?
