Assuming both shop quotes are for BOTH front wheel bearings AND LABOR....
the first quote is ok...the second sounds fishy...(or the quote is just for one side)
Also a factor is the parts.....new,, used or refurbished....

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

Reason for humming noise even after changing wheel bearings of car


Depending on how the noise is affected by your driving, it could be an axle joint or the differential in the transaxle.
If it is coming from the back instead of the front you may still need hub bearings.

2003 Pontiac Grand AM.... When driving I keep getting a loud "humming/vibrating" sound from Front left tire. Tire treads are okay, need new tires soon, but I've been told possibly the wheel...


Wheel bearings are sealed on this particular GM vehicle. First thing to try is to place the front tires on the back of the vehicle and see if the sound changes. If the sound still comes from the front, have the wheel bearing checked at your local service center. Expect to pay between $200-250 to replace. If you decide to do it yourself, you can find the part for $60 at places like RockAuto.com.

Wheel bearings will generally last around 200K miles before they begin to show signs of failure. If you hit a curb on that side recently, that could cause a premature failure.

I have 89 old 88 delta. When driving it sounds like a real high humming noise from the passenger front end, when the weight is shifted to the drivers side it seems to go away until weight is put back on...


Wheel bearing. Sounds like the right front, but have the mechanic verify it first. A lot of bearings have been replaced for the opposite side that they thought was bad.

I have a humming sound coming from my front driver side when I reach about 30 mph and the ABS sensor keeps going out on the same side.


most probably your left front wheel bearing...the speed sensor for the Abs is contained within the wheel bearing so it generally flickers\comes on when driving as there is play within the bearing and the readings are erratic from the play within the bearing.....jack up the car and check for side to side,up and down play with the tire...if you find play\movement then that is the most probable culprit.....the bearing is self contained ,not greasable and is replaced as a unit,it comes with the abs sensor within it....takes about an hour to replace and the bearing assemble costs about 70-200$,,,shop around it;ll save you money ive learned

Hope your mechanic is right cos that is a costly job. Try calling around your local parts dealers, aka Autozone, Advance, Oreilly for prices on parts.

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.

Alero loud humming/roaring sound coming from front end.


That's indicative of a wheel bearing, which is why you were told to change that out. However, it's also possible that the carrier bearings in the differential (where the drive axles attach) have gone bad. That happened to me on my 300ZX several years ago, and I had to replace the diff bearings. I would have them checked out somewhere other than a dealer (you'll probably get a better price from an independent shop).

As a sidenote, to be sure it wasn't a wheel bearing, if you hear it quiet down in a turn one way but get louder in a turn the opposite way, it's likely the wheel bearing. If you turn left at speed and it gets louder, then it's the right bearing (since you're loading up that side of the car). If it gets quieter in a right turn, it's the right side (you're unloading that side of the car and not putting as much weight on it, so it doesn't drag as badly). See if you get that symptom just to be sure that the wrong side front wheel bearing wasn't changed.
