You must replace wheel bearings in pairs to avoid loading the old bearing and, in time ruining your new bearing hub it is possible that you have already damaged the new hub

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

Rubbing noise


This will probably be the front C-V shaft or hub bearing. When in 2 wheel drive the C-V shaft will not have a load on it. But as soon as you change to 4 wheel drive the part has stress on it. It can also behave this way when the Hub bearing is asked to bear Torque from the turning C-V shaft. Instead of having slack from the weight of the truck pressing the Hub bearings straight up, the bearings are rotating under Torque and any play is magnified.

The rubbing can be the rotor, running on bad bearings and hitting the brake pads. As the rotor is bolted onto the Hub bearing, the rotor will tilt in harmony to the bad bearings in the Hub. This creates a misalignment as one side of the rotor is tilted creating a high side.

2005 Toyota Camry is making a loud scraping sound after driving 15 mins...What could be causing the noise? I took it in to Toyota and Firestone and they couldn't find anything...


Take the car out on a quiet parking lot(no traffic) get it up to speed and when the noise is occuring turn the car to the right and to the left...did the noise go away???
I think on one of those turns it did...if it went away on the left turn the left front wheel bearing/hub assembly is bad and needs replacement, if it went away on the right turn the right side hub/bearing needs replacement. Hope that helps!!

Unbearable humming vibration in rear of car


It sounds like one of your rear wheel bearing hub has gone bad and needs to be replaced before you lose your wheel. I am thinking to pay attention to the right rear wheel hub bearing than needs to be replaced, they go for around $170.00 at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instructions to get the job done with common tools or you can use there loner program if you need to borrow a tool you may not have. With the car parked walk to the rear wheels and push and pull on the top of the tire (Side to side), feel and listen for any play. You should not hear or feel any play at all unless the wheel hub has gone bad. It take less then 1-1/2 hour to change the wheel hub and less if your good with tools. Good luck and keep me posted friend. Be safe.

Terrible Front End noise


Good Day,
It would make sense that it is suspension related as it does not make noise at idle but going down the road it does. I would lean towards it being a bad wheel bearing. Does it sound like it's coming from one side or the other? Also how many miles on the car? Does it get louder when the wheels are turning?

You can check the bearing easily by jacking up that wheel and moving it side to side and up down checking for play, a little bit of play is normal.

Hope this helps and Good Luck
