    If it is the rear that is making the noise it could be the Brakes. Pads or Shoes. Or it could be the bearing or the gear teeth are scared or nicked.

I believe it is the lower front wishbone that is too dry in the joint. Ask someone to put a hand at the wishbone while turning the steering wheel back and forth. The person will immediately feel wether it is this or not, by small vibrations and nois from it.

Could be wheel bearing. Make sure your tire isn't rubbing anything. Make sure you haven't blown any of the steel belts in your tire. Typically if it was your bearing it would have slowly gotten louder, not just all of a sudden unless you hit something. Good luck

While driving, I am hearing a continuous sound like a tire is flat; however, the sound only starts at about 20 mph, and it seems to get louder the faster I go. What could be causing this noise if the tires...

so hard to diagnose over the phone, however, you could try a couple of things, check to see if any of the tires are rubbing against anything. if not, can you try and distinguish where the sound in coming from? in the engine compartment, it might be something like a shredded belt, or it could be your u-joint...try those first, best of luck

There is an increasing loud noise from the right front passenger tire, the tire is worn uneven and the noise only appears when you excelerate it sounds like the tire is out of round but it only happen when...

Does the noise get louder or change tones when you change lanes (swerve back and forth on the road)? If so it is a hub bearing. If you suspect it being a tire rotating it from the front to ther rear should answer your question aswell.

Noise coming from front of car

It sounds exactly like a wheel bearing problem.The right side its seems would be the problem. When you turn right it puts more pressure on the bad bearing making it louder. I would suggest replacing both. If on is gone the other one isn't far off. Hope this helps

It may be a wheel bearing going bad. The A4 is known for wheel bearing issues, and the A6 shares many drivetrain parts with the A4.

Whining sound in front end while driving seems to get louder when speed is above 60kmh

It could be chopped tires or a front wheel bearing. Rub your hand around the front and rear tires and see if they are un-even like a wash board. If they are they need replacing and will make a wierd whining noise that changes with the speed.The wheel bearings can also make this noise so check the tires and go from there. I hope this helps you.....Dan
