    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.

Humming noise coming from front end. It starts about 20 mph and the pitch gets higher as speed is increased?


More than likely it may be a wheel bearing, if the sound gets louder. Jackup the side where you think the sound is coming from, and spin the wheel to see. You can jack up one tire and get in vehicle put foot on brake start engine then put it in drive with foot on brake, release brake slowly. Wheel will spin and you can tell if thats the one.( put E-brake on first ) Let down and do the same on the other side to check it. As long as one wheel is on the ground the car will not move. Then you can tell if its a wheel bearing or not. God-Bless you and your family!

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.

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?
