It may be the bearing. located underneath the wheel rotor on the wheel axle. Lift up the car and remove the wheel, brake pads and rotor. remove the rotor and turn the nut that holds to axle in place by removing a small pin. (if there is one) and turning counter clockwise. you will see the bearing under the rotor. Check for missing bearings , dirty oil debris, etc. If it has any of this , replace with new bearing. The exact way you removed it. Do not overtighten the nut. This will cause the bearing to overheat. just tighten enough for the bearing to fit snug with no movement.Make sure you grease up the new bearing good.

Humming noise from front right passenger side of chrysler 300, changed the tires and the noise is still there. any suggestions??


typical wheel bearing sound
when you drive, safely swerve on the road from left to right and again. when you swerve right the sound should attenuate when left it should be louder.

I have aloud humming noise from the frontend of my car i thought it was a wheel bearing but it was not any ideas is it the axle


im not sure the type of car or teuck this is but a humming sound from the front end is common with a bad tire or the most common is a wheel bearing, have you checked both wheel bearings? iu have worked on many wheel bearing noises and i will tell you it sounds like its on one side but its on the other side or in the rear, this humming i assume is when its rolling and gets louder with speed, its got to be a tire bearing or in the trany if its front wheel drive.

I just got stuck twice in two different icy parking spaced with my 2004 Trailblazer. The front tire was on dry road, and the indicator said it was in 4 hi. Why was the rear driver-side tire spinning? Is...


Unless you have a locking differential in the rear, then the drivers rear would just spin, and the passenger side rear would do nothing. Now on the front, the passenger side front is the power wheel. If the passenger side front wasn't spinning either, then you may have an actuator problem. The other problem too look into would be the TCCM (transfer case control module) could be going bad.

2005 mini cooper has loud humming noise from rear when driving above 40 mph. Any suggestions on what this could be


I had a similar issue and it ended up being a broken wheel bearing. I even ended up having two, one was broken on my front passenger side, and one broken on my rear driver side. The part costs about $280.00, but could cost around $400.00 with service repair. The noise of a broken wheel bearing can sound like a humming, and over time it becomes louder. The car can be driven with a broken wheel bearing, but doing so can eventually lead to other wheel/tire maintenance. MINI's endure this commonly due to their low profile to the ground. Here is a forum on further issues experienced, including the bearing, and efforts towards recalls. http://newmini.wordpress.com/2009/02/17/mini-cooper-power-steering-failure/#comment-884

Loud humming noise from drivers side front end changed hub assembly still have noise ????????????????


humming noise usually comes from wheel bearings. did you change that with a new bearing? also choppy or worn tires can cause humming noise that sounds like bad wheel bearings. rotate your tires and see if the noise changes. if so its tires. also even if it sounds like its from the right it could very well be a bad bearing in another location.

Wheel rub at high speeds.


It sounds like a bad bearing on the right side hub. you can check this by raising the front of the car till the tires are off the grond. Grab the tire and try to wiggle it up and down and front to back if there is any play replace the bearing. check both sides
